Beyoncé's "Lemonade" Reveal Will Give You Chills

Trust Beyoncé to make your Monday morning a little brighter.

The superstar has unveiled a new trailer for her "Lemonade" video, which premieres on HBO on April 23. It's a sensory feast, with rapid-fire imagery interlaced with some racy dialogue from Queen Bey.

"The past and the present merge to meet us here," she says as we see her rocking cornrows and a fur coat in a parking garage.

Cue quick shots of flickering lights, Bey in a wedding dress, and women with painted faces. Then there's the singer wielding a baseball bat and going full Harley Quinn on a New Orleans Police Department camera.

Meanwhile, the star is cooing about wanting the "love of her life" to wrap her legs around her. Pretty sure she means you, Jay Z.

Our takeaway: Like lemonade itself, this production is going to be sweet and tart. Bring it on.
