The singer, 31, acted out the lyrics from her hit song "Single Ladies" and put her "hands up" Wednesday, taking a thrill ride on Coney Island's famed Cyclone for her new music video.
Sporting a cap featuring the image of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., a white tank top, loads of bling and a big smile, the pop icon rode in the front car of the amusement park's iconic rollercoaster for the music video, which is being directed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson.
The superstar's surprise appearance at the park made the long holiday weekend even better for lucky fans.
"This is the craziest and best thing I’ve seen in my whole life,” Shawnette Duncan, 19, of Brooklyn, told the New York Daily News. "I came out to Coney Island for the day. It was a lucky day."
