She has always been one to make a song and dance with her various announcements.

And Beyonce Knowles’ latest declaration was no different as she released a dramatic teaser video.

The 31-year-old singer stands in a dark dance studio looking as if she is ready to bust some moves in front of the mirrors.

The singer showed off her flat stomach in a mesh sleeveless AllSaints Kyoto tee and fit legs in leather hot pants.

 

The empty venue shows the star glaring at reflection with only a boom box and cardboard case on the floor, plus a white towel slung across the chair.

Another shot shows the blonde open and close her cybernetic hand which is encased in a metallic glove and spins around several times.

The six-second clip – which was posted on her YouTube page on Wednesday morning – put fans on notice to wait for bigger news the following day.

The message at the end points to April 4 2013, 9am EDT for viewers to return to the same place to hear something exciting, adding the social networking hashtag #BeHereNow.

It’s a significant day for the star who has a personal connection with the number four as she and her husband Jay-Z are both born on the fourth day of their respective birth months.

She named her fourth album after the number and even her child Blue Ivy Carter’s second name comes from the Roman numeral for four, IV.

Beyonce previously told Billboard magazine: ‘We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. 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.’

Her teaser seems to be a popular way to drum up anticipation for new music releases as Justin Timberlake used the same technique with his 20/20 Experience LP in a video titled I’m Ready in January. 

It’s no surprise they have similar styles as her rapper spouse is working with Justin and they are set to embark on a Legends of Summer tour.

Beyonce told Vogue in February that her new record will be ‘a lot more sensual’ and ‘empowering’.

Shes certainly changing, her promotion and style. The clothes or lack of them seems to be Americas way of promoting its female artists. Why has she allowed herself to go down the Rihanna road. Is it her Husbands influence ? She had class before. Saw her Programme about herself. Didn't think much to it. Pretty Fake and Narcisstic. Why ? Just sing and do some good Tunes, like you did before.

Obviously, there are some bitter women over here hating on a beautiful and successful woman who doesn't bother anyone. If you don't like her, don't read the article and don't comment. Simple as that!- Alina , Redondo Beach.....See....I know I should just let this go, but I can't. No one has the right to tell anyone what they can or cannot read/ comment on. I don't like her. So what?! I'm entitled to know what the culture is reading/listening to/watching/rotting their brain on - it's their choice, just like it's mine. I can comment if I like, we all can. Guess, what : it DOES NOT make me bitter, jealous or ignorant. Just because I like to see what the world sees yet view perhpas view it differently, who are YOU to tell anyone on here? Or do you just like bullying others into submission to your worldview?

Reading some of the comments on here I wondered when the backlash would start. It seems as if everything has gone wonderfully right for Beyonce and she's certainly not shy about promoting herself. But then it's part and parcel of her job I guess. I watched the documentary on her life she produced. She opened up without giving anything away. What I see is a young woman doing her thing but who sees herself as a daughter, wife and mother first who just happens to pay the bills by being a superstar. She makes it look easy but in a world where you can barely break wind before it's captured on YouTube, she's done well to keep it all going.
