The final countdown! Beyonce flashes a growing baby bump in her 1960s style new music video

Tummy rub: Beyonce has incorporated rubbing her pregnant belly into a dance routine in a teaser for her new music video Countdown

She announced her pregnancy to a worldwide audience at the recent MTV Video Music awards.

So it's no surprise that Beyonce is incorporating her growing baby bump into her stylish new music video.

In a 30 second new teaser video for the song, appropriately named Countdown, the star at one point turns to the side in a clinging black dress and shows off her blossoming tummy.


Striking: Beyonce performs the song in front of a black and white background wearing a black polo neck, cropped black trousers and white socks

She sings: 'I’m tryin' to make us 3 from that 2' in the song, before three images of her displaying her bump are shown.

The star also shows off her new sidewards belly rubbing dance move which wowed the audience at MTV.


Black and white style: The singer wears a floppy striped hat, teamed with multicoloured leotards in one clip

The full length video version of the song will premiere tomorrow and shows the singer getting into a striking 1960s style groove.

he channels Audrey Hepburn in the video which sees her in a dark wig with a black fringe, cropped black trousers, and at one point, a black and white floppy hat, much like the actress in film My Fair Lady.

The teaser for the video starts with a close up shot of the star in winged black eyeliner and false eyelashes.

A later shot shows her sporting bright green eyeshadow, and a pink lipsticked mouth which she curls up.

There's also a striking shot of the star standing against a black and white striped background, moving her arms in a clock style.

And clearly Countdown wouldn't be a Beyonce video without some flesh exposed.
The star also sports an unusual cut out dress in which she dances remarkably energetically sporting a short black wig.

The video ends with Beyonce, or rather several images of Beyonce, dancing in a series of multi coloured body suits.

The baby, rumoured to be a girl due next spring, is the singer and her husband Jay-Z's first.

''I'm excited! I think that is pretty easy,' the 41-year-old rapper told E! recently.
