A nearly-nude Beyonce has hopped back on her high holographic horse in a brief Break My Soul music video teaser for fans.
The 40-year-old singer starred for just 20 seconds at the start of the four-minute 30 seconds visual titled, Break My Soul (CLIQUEBAIT) while the remainder of the vid featured a black screen with the album’s name, Renaissance.
While her appearance was short it was certainly sweet as the music icon still managed to make a big impact by wearing a risque silver body harness that just about protected her modesty, strappy silver heels, smokey eye shadow and bright red lipstick.
She also sat on top of the crystal holographic horse that has become a central part of the album’s visuals, striking several poses before disappearing from the screen.
The dramatic video ended with a fire burning near the stallion.
According to Vogue, Beyonce’s outfit, which she also wears for the album cover, is designed by Nusi Quero and was so tricky to wear that it came with an installation video for her stylists.

The daring design reportedly took Quero a week and a half to design, and the singer’s crew had to put the harness on her in multiple sections.
However, this complication for the mum-of-three must have been a walk in the park compared to the roll-out of the album.
The star has come under fire after releasing new album Renaissance at midnight last Friday – her first solo album in six years since 2016’s Lemonade.
Since then she has removed the usage of Milkshake from her new song Energy after singer Kelis slammed her for featuring the hit 2003 song without her permission.

The controversy kicked off hours before the album’s official drop when Kelis took to Instagram to voice her frustration that her song was being used and she hadn’t been given a heads-up.
‘It’s not a collab, it’s theft,’ she wrote.
‘My mind is blown too because the level of disrespect and utter ignorance of all 3 parties involved is astounding,’ she added.
‘Nothing is ever as it seems, some of the people in this business have no soul or integrity, and they have everyone fooled.’
Just days before the album dropped it leaked online and then, on Monday, Beyoncé announced she would be removing the word ‘s**z’ from her song Heated following backlash from critics who said the word is an ableist slur.
Lizzo also removed the word from her song Grrrls earlier this summer.
