Beyoncé is back and she's on a wig-collecting mission. The Queen of all genres gave the lessors a break last era. She chose artistic freedom over commercial success but still managed to outperform every bitch in the game apart from Adele - and her sales don't count because she tapped into the lucrative obese market. Need proof? Compare first week US album sales:

Despite owning your fave on the Hot 200 without even trying, King B is obviously sick of seeing basics on the singles chart because she's bringing out the big guns. In addition to spending all day uploading stunning images to Tumblr and Instagram (above), she's filming a documentary for HBO, performing at Superbowl and reportedly hitting the studio Justin Timberlake.
I'm not sure how I feel about Justin. To be honest, I think his music is boring as fuck but I've always loved their 2007 duet "Until The End Of Time" (below). It's a bit of a grower but the Timbaland-produced slow jam still sounds amazing today. If only the lazy bums had filmed a video it would have been massive - instead of peaking at a still respectable number 17.
And if the JT collab doesn't work out, Bey could always call JC Chasez. Everyone knows he was the best thing about 'N Sync!
