Beyoncé Debuts 'Standing on the Sun'

What a tease!

Fans patiently waiting for the release of Beyoncé's new album are getting another small taste of new music from the singer as part of her ad campaign for H&M.

In a 90-second video, Beyoncé shows off sexy swim and beachwear while flipping up sand and surf in the Bahamas to the pulsating sounds of "Standing on the Sun."

The singer, who is currently on tour in Europe, also goes from her usual blonde hair to black locks in the video, which was directed by Jonas Akerlund. By the end of the clip, Queen Bey is sitting on a wicker throne wearing an elaborate headdress that we're guessing won't be available at H&M.

"Standing on the Sun" isn't the first new material we've heard from the singer this year: The song "Grown Woman" was featured in her recent Pepsi commercial. And she posted the controversial track "Bow Down/I Been On" on her Tumblr page in March.

Without an official album release date, if Beyoncé keeps releasing new music this way it's going to be a long, hot summer!
