The video, shared on the Crazy in Love hitmaker's official YouTube channel, garnered over four million views just hours after being posted, with the song's title trending across various social media websites.

In the clip for the single, available to stream from husband Jay Z's company Tidal, Beyoncé is every inch the epitome of glamour in a series of jaw-dropping outfits from a burgundy playsuit showing off her enviable physique, to floor-length black gowns, crop tops, and a striking striped Gucci dress. The American superstar also had jaws dropping to the floor as she once again wowed with her incredible dance moves.

However, the Crazy in Love singer wasn't the only one to make quite the impression in the video; her four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy also took centre stage. The little girl was the spitting image of her mother, looking as adorable as ever playing with friends and giggling in the clip, dressed in a pretty white frilly dress.

No doubt it's an exciting weekend for Beyoncé, who will be joining Coldplay to perform during the Super Bowl's iconic half-time show on Sunday. The singer has already taken to the NFL sporting event's stage, but this marks the first time she will team up with another act.

Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin revealed the band's elation at having been chosen for the performance, describing it as "the greatest moment in our band's life".

"We are so excited and honoured and thrilled to be playing the half-time show. It's going to be wonderful and I hope we see you there," he said in a promotional video for the event, adding that he was "really, really nervous" about the performance.

He continued: "This is the greatest moment in our band's life. We are going to give it everything we have."
