When life gives her lemons, Beyoncé Knowles makes lemonade. Or at least that's the name of the mysterious project she's working on with HBO. In a surreal clip released this weekend, Queen Bey appears in many different guises: leaning against a car with her hair in braids, hiding in a hoodie in the middle of a field, looking regal in a huge white gown, and brandishing a baseball bat while a corner shop explodes behind her. You know, pretty casual stuff.

There are also appearances from Winnie Harlow, an ominous storm cloud, some painted dancers sitting on a train, and a creepy infrared light, all the while Bey's silky smooth voiceover can be heard delivering a broken and cryptic message: "The past and the present merge to meet us here. What are you hiding? Think of lovers as trees. Why can't you see me? You're the love of my life. Wrap your legs around me. What am I doing, my love? Pull me in." Confused? So are we, but worry not as all will be revealed this Saturday in the world premiere event. Watch this space, oh and watch the video below too.
