Beyoncé Knowles has surprised her legions of fans by releasing a new song called 'Formation'.

The singing superpower, 34, dropped the new track late on Saturday night (6 February) - totally out of the blue!

Posting the accompanying video on her official website and on YouTube, fans were quick to notice her daughter Blue Ivy takes centre stage.

Adds a new meaning to take your kid to work day!

We don't think four-year-old Blue Ivy - her daughter with husband Jay-Z - will be watching the video any time soon, though - the song has explicit lyrics throughout.

After the video went live, fans expressed their happiness on social media.

The new track is Bey's first since her Beyoncé: Platinum Edition was released in November 2014.

The 'Single Ladies' star is due to perform at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, where Coldplay will be headlining.

A new album is rumoured to be coming soon from the Texas-born superstar.
