Queen Bey's latest album has proven to be her most revealing in more ways than one!
The singer not only released 17 music videos that frequently show her in various states of undress at the same time as her surprise "Beyonce" album, but in periodically posted snippets of her complimentary "Self-Titled" documentary, Beyonce, 32, has been exposing even more of herself to the public.
In the fourth part, titled "Liberation," posted December 30, the "Partition" singer explained her motivation for the song's accompanying video, in which she dances in a series of skimpy outfits, including a thong.
"I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body," explains Jay Z's wife. "I was 195 pounds when I gave birth, I lost 65 pounds, I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body," she said, referencing the January 7, 2012 birth of their daughter Blue Ivy.
"I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know finding my sensuality, getting back into my body, being proud of growing up, it was important to me that I expressed that in my music because there are so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth."
She opines: "You can have your child, and you can still have fun, and still be sexy, and still have dreams, and still live for yourself."
And she was right, scroll through to see Mrs. Carter's slimdown from her first public outing post-pregnancy in Februrary 2012 to what the singer looks like now!
Just one day shy of her one-month anniversary of giving birth to her daughter, the singer attended an after party for hubby Jay Z's concert at the 40/40 Club February 6, 2012.
An already slimmed down version of the singer struck a pose at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, 2012 in New York City.
Seven months after giving birth to Blue Ivy, Beyonce was all smiles in a curve-hugging yellow gown at the 2012 BET Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on July 1, 2012.
Bye bye baby weight! In time for her show-stopping (and light-cutting) Super Bowl halftime performance, the "Halo" singer looked positively svelte in a skintight red dress while giving a pre-game press conference January 31, 2013.
Her toned arms, skinny legs and tiny torso were on full display when she was snapped on her way to film one of her "Beyonce" album's 17 music videos at Coney Island August 29, 2013.
The peek-a-boo black dress Queen B wore to the release party and screening of her latest album at New York City's School of Visual Arts December 21, 2013 shows just how far the songstress has come in her body quest! Bravo!
