The pop singer appeared in a Verizon commercial during the Super Bowl game where she attempts to break the internet – inventing a "Beyonc-AI" robot, launching Bar-Bey, and flying a rocket to deliver the first performance from space.

At the end of the commercial, Beyoncé tells co-star Tony Hale: "Okay, they ready. Drop the new music."

Beyonce, who watched the Super Bowl game in Las Vegas alongside her husband Jay-Z and daughters Blue Ivy and Rumi, posted a video on her Instagram teasing Act II moments after the commercial aired.

The 42-year-old then released two songs titled Texas Hold 'Em, referencing the poker game named after the singer's home state, and 16 Carriages.

Fans eagerly await Beyoncé's latest project

Fans have eagerly been anticipating a new project from Beyoncé, who initially released Act I: Renaissance in July 2022, later revealing it was part of a three-act project.

In December, Beyonce released a new single titled My House to commemorate the "opening weekend" of the Renaissance tour film, which followed the music superstar on her 39-date world tour of the Grammy-winning album.

Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé was a box office success, following in the footsteps of Taylor Swift with The Eras Tour film.

The music announcement comes months after the childhood home of Beyoncé was saved from burning down after emergency crews were called to the Texan house on Christmas Day.

Beyoncé's family bought the home in 1982 and lived there until she was five years old.
