Beyonce surprised fans by teasing forthcoming new music as she stunned in a Verizon Super Bowl ad — for which she reportedly received a $30million payout — on Sunday.

The 42-year-old icon — who attended the big game alongside other notable stars — moved through various personas in the minute-long commercial.

It comes after days earlier the phone company teased the singer’s appearance in the advert with two brief bits shared on social media.

In one clip, actor Tony Hale squeezed lemons behind a lemonade stand and said: ‘Hold up, she wants me to squeeze all these lemons by myself? This better work.’

The clue was a reference to the pop star’s 2016 surprise Lemonade visual album.

And just like she did in eight years ago, the Grammy-winning musician blew fans away on Sunday as she dropped two new singles.

As she announced an upcoming album, a country-genre follow-up to 2022’s Renaissance, she also released two new singles in tandem.

Along with the music came breathtaking artwork, which included a very scantily clad Beyonce, who posed pantless.

In one snapshot, she put on a very busty display as she wore a silver hardware bra underneath a cropped black blazer.

The caption to her 319 million followers, she wrote, ‘TEXAS HOLD ‘EM and 16 CARRIAGES out now.’

The 16 CARRIAGES artwork was a closeup black and white image of Beyonce — full name Beyonce Knowles Carter — in a black cowboy hat.

She rocked a voluminous and wispy bob haircut underneath the headgear.

And the Houston, Texas native was clad in a black cowboy shirt with stud detailing around the collar.

Beyonce shared the full Verizon commercial online and wrote in a caption, ‘@verizon #ad.’

She followed up the post with another video outtake — one that showed her driving an old yellow taxi car through a desert.

The Texas license plate on the vehicle read, ‘HOLD ‘EM.’

The scene opened with Knowles turning the key in ignition with a red fishnet gloved hand.

The shot then switched to her stepping on the gas while wearing a white sandal that showed off a red pedicure.

Eventually a group of late-aged men dressed in country-inspired attire appeared with baffled expressions on their faces.

One slowly pointed to a billboard, where an exaggerated caricature of Beyonce was seen in red cowboy boots, lingerie, and a cowboy hat.

While lying on her side, she held up one waving hand, and in black font against a yellow background were the words ‘Texas Hold ‘Em.’

Bluesy guitar strums from the first notes of her new song played before the screen went black with ‘act ii, 3.29’ surfacing in the same white font used to promote her wildly successful Renaissance album.

Beyonce ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ full lyrics

[Chorus]

This ain’t Texas (Oh)

Ain’t no hold ’em (Hey)

So lay your cards down, down, down, down

So park your Lexus (Ooh)

And throw your keys up (Hey)

Stick around, ’round, ’round, ’round, ’round (Stick around)

And I’ll be damned if I can’t slow-dance with you

Come pour some sugar on me, honey too

It’s a real-life boogie and a real-life hoedown

Don’t be a b****, come take it to the floor now, woo, ha

[Verse 1]

There’s a tornado (There’s a tornado)

In my city (In my city)

Hit the basement (Hit the basement)

That s*** ain’t pretty (S*** ain’t pretty)

Rugged whiskey (Rugged whiskey)

‘Cause we survivin’ (‘Cause we survivin’)

Puffin’ red-cup kisses, sweet redemption, passin’ time, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]

Ooh, one step to the right

We headed to the dive bar we always thought was nice

Ooh, run me to the left

Then spin me in the middle, boy,

[Chorus]

This ain’t Texas (Oh)

Ain’t no hold ’em (Hey)

So lay your cards down, down, down, down

So park your Lexus (Ooh)

And throw your keys up (Hey)

Stick around,’ round, ’round, ’round, ’round (Stick around)

And I’ll be damned if I can’t slow-dance with you

Come pour some sugar on me, honey too

It’s a real-life boogie and a real-life hoedown

Don’t be a b****, come take it to the floor now, woo

And I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you

Come pour some liquor on me, honey too

It’s a real-life boogie and a real-life hoedown

Don’t be a b****, come take it to the floor now, woo

[Post-Chorus]

(Woo-hoo)

(Woo-hoo)

(Woo-hoo)

[Verse 2]

There’s a heatwave (There’s a heatwave)

Comin’ at us (Comin’ at us)

Too hot to think straight (Too hot to think straight)

Too cold to panic (Cold to panic)

All of the problems

Just feel dramatic (Just feel dramatic)

And now we’re runnin’ to the first bar that we find, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]

Ooh, one step to the right

We headed to the dive bar we always thought was nice

Ooh, you run to the left

Just work me in the middle, boy, I can’t read your mind

[Chorus]

This ain’t Texas (Oh)

Ain’t no hold ’em (Hey)

So lay your cards down, down, down, down (Oh)

So park your Lexus (Hey)

And throw your keys up (Hey)

Stick around,’ round, ’round, ’round, ’round (Stick around)

And I’ll be damned if I can’t slow-dance with you

Come pour some liquor on me, honey too

It’s a real-life boogie and a real-life hoedown

Don’t be a—, come take it to the floor now, ooh

[Outro]

Take it to the floor now, ooh

Oops, spurs, boots

To the floor now, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ([?])

Shoot

Come take it to the floor now, ooh

And I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you

Baby, pour that sugar and liquor on me too

Spurs, spurs, boots

Photogenic, photogenic, shoot

Beyonce ’16 Carriages’ full lyrics

[Chorus]

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

[Verse 1]

I saw Mama prayin’, I saw Daddy grind

All my tender problems, had to leave behind

[Pre-Chorus]

On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band

Goin’ so hard, gotta choose myself

Underpaid and overwhelmed

Still workin’ on my life, you know

Only God knows, only God knows

Only God knows

[Chorus]

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

[Verse 2]

Sixteen dollars, workin’ all day

Ain’t got time to waste, I got art to make

I got love to create on this holy night

They won’t dim my light, all these years I fight

[Pre-Chorus]

It’s been thirty-eight summers, and I’m not in my bed

On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band

Overworked and overwhelmed

I might cook, clean, but still won’t fold

Still workin’ on my life, you know

Only God knows, only God knows

Only God knows

[Chorus]

Sixteen carriages driving away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen carriages driving away

While I watch them ride with my fears away

To the summer sunset on a holy night

On a long back road, all these tears I fight

[Interlude]

Oh, oh

Oh

[Bridge]

At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray

Had to take care of home at an early age

Had to sacrifice and leave my fears behind

You’ll remember me ’cause we got somethin’ to prove

In your memory, on a highway to truth

Still see your faces when you close your eyes

[Outro]

Sixteen carriages drivin’ away

While I watch them ride with my dreams away
