Beyonce teases video for new song 'Run the World (Girls)'

wants you to know that Queen B is back -- or at least wants to tease you to that effect.

Beyonce's gold shoes in "Run the World (Girls)" The multitalented star has posted a minute-plus sizzle reel with glimpses into the epic video for her new single, "Run the World (Girls)," and for fans it does not disappoint.

That'd be the single that leaked in demo form in April under the name "Girls (Who Run the World)."

The female anthem, a long tradition for Mrs. Jay-Z, gets a revolutionary treatment in the clips as Beyonce assembles an all-girl army to charge on through, well, the world. 

Major shoes, big hair, a standard trio of lovely backup dancers and a touch of the apocalypse suggest this is next-level Beyonce fierceness. Think Mad Maxine.

The single will be on "4," Beyonce's upcoming album slated for a summer release.

"We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me,” the singer told Billboard. "It's the day I was born. My mother's birthday, and a lot of my friends' birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date."

Watch the clip above. Are you excited for the full video to drop?
