Beyoncé just might be the queen of nearly breaking the internet. Following a brief hiatus, the superstar songstress set Instagram on fire yet again when she shared sizzling photos of herself enjoying another epic date night with Jay-Z.

In the series of posts, Beyoncé can be seen striking fierce poses in the body-hugging number, which accentuated her curves and showed off major decolletage via its plunging neckline. 

The Ivy Park mogul finished the look with blue rectangular shades, a black sparkly clutch, and black strappy heels. Her long blonde locks were styled in soft curls that cascaded past her shoulders amping up the elegant vibe of her ensemble.

We loved it - and tracked down a similar dress on Pretty Little Thing that's perfect for special occasions, particularly during the holiday season.

For their night out, Jay Z coordinated with Queen Bey’s monochromatic look and rocked a black suit with a white button-down shirt and a black bow tie.

The duo was on hand for the BFI London Film Festival and it was clear they enjoyed their evening. In a sweet photo, Bey and Jay cozied up together in the back of their chauffeured car and held hands as the Black Parade singer flashed a blissful smile. 

Fans went wild over the snaps, which Beyoncé posted after midnight EST, with one writing “I’m glad I lived to see this” and another adding: "Queen of everything!" Another chimed in with: "Queen we are trying to sleep!"

Meanwhile, other fans wanted to know one thing: when is the next album coming.

Beyoncé last released new music last summer when she debuted her Black Is King visual album on Disney Plus in July at the height of the pandemic, and surprise track Black Is King on Juneteenth last year too. 

So far, Bey hasn’t given any hints that she’ll be releasing a new album soon, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed and enjoying her stylish posts in the meantime.
