Don't call it a comeback -- but Beyonce has booked her first singing gig since giving birth to her and Jay-Z's baby, Blue Ivy.

The working mom will perform on three dates over Memorial Day weekend as part of the grand opening festivities for Revel Resorts in Atlantic City, N.J.

While the Ministry can't imagine the booking fees for such an intimate engagement, we're thrilled Bey is back on her grind -- these dates are just the tip of the iceberg in a slate that also includes Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" update and a possible movie musical with Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz.

The show will go off at Revel's Ovation Hall on May 25, 26 and 27, with tickets available starting April 6. Perhaps concertgoers will be treated to some of the new material the "Single Ladies" singer is developing.

Two records are reportedly in the works, according to producer Ryan Tedder of the band OneRepublic.

"All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have, and she's this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in," he said last month.
