The singer kicked off a new album era in full swing, not only announcing that the album is coming in a little less than a month, on 29 July, but also making waves with a brand new magazine cover to boot.

She perfectly celebrated the highly-anticipated announcement by gracing the cover of British Vogue's July issue, "turning up the heat" by donning a black velvet gown as she sits atop a horse, with dim red lighting surrounding her.

"New music is coming – a thrilling abundance of it," said the magazine's editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, following his interview with the performer.

However, in true Beyoncé nature, the announcement didn't come without its fair share of cryptic messages.

Though it is clear that the album would include sixteen songs, attached to the name is "act I," and fans rushed to try to decipher whether the sixteen songs would be released in separate acts or if even more songs were to follow the initial release.
