If you want free tickets to the Formation World Tour, all you need to do is Bey good.

Beyoncé announced Wednesday that she will partner with the charities United Way, Chime for Change and Global Citizen on her upcoming tour.

And the "Drunk in Love" singer, 34, is giving fans who give back – donating online, in a local community or on-site during the tour – a chance to win tickets to her show.

The philanthropic move is just the latest of the performer's BeyGOOD initiative, which she launched in 2013 on her Mrs. Carter World Tour and through which she partners with various organizations to give back to and empower communities around the world.



The North American leg of the Formation tour kicks off April 27 in Miami, and all three of her charitable partners will be involved at each stop, while three cities – Bey's hometown, Houston; Compton, California; and Detroit – will host special benefit events.

This is just the latest time Beyoncé has gotten involved with two of the organizations. She co-founded Gucci's Chime for Change campaign, which aims to empower women.

And last year, she headlined the annual Global Citizen Festival – a free show to drive action to initiatives to end global poverty by 2030 – in September. The year prior, she made a surprise cameo when husband Jay Z took the stage.

The announcement comes just days before Beyoncé will release a new secret project: According to an Entertainment Weekly source, Lemonade – airing Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO – is a "lengthy concept video."
