Beyonce's baby bump featured in new video for 'Countdown' - watch
Beyonce is putting her pregnancy front and center in the new video for her single "Countdown."
The video for the single premiered on Thursday, October 6 and was featured on Beyonce's official website.
The 30-year-old singer announced her pregnancy during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in August. During her 2011 MTV VMA performance she told the audience, "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me." At the end she opened her sequined tuxedo jacket and rubbed her stomach, to the delight of the crowd.
It will be the first child for the singer, who is married to 41-year-old rapper Jay-Z. The couple got married on April 4, 2008. The nuptials were so secret that no photos or video from the event were released. The couple got married with a close circle of 40 friends and family members after dating for six years.
In the 30 second preview for the video, which can be seen below, Beyonce can be seen wearing several skin-tight outfits which accentuate her baby bump and at one point she turns to the side and her pregnant stomach can be clearly seen.
The singer's fourth album, titled "4," was released on June 28. Beyonce had some downtime between "4" and her previous album "I Am ... Sasha Fierce," which came out in 2008 and earned the singer six Grammy Awards, the most Grammys ever won by a female artist in one night.
Beyonce has sold more than 75 million records and earned 16 Grammy Awards in her career - including 13 as a solo artist and three as a member of Destiny's Child.
In May, she was honored with the Millennium Award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards and in June 2010, Knowles was ranked second on Forbes list of the 100 Most Powerful and Influential celebrities in the world and first on its list of the Most Powerful and Influential musicians.
