The New Beyoncé Track is a Slice of Paradise

You're gonna need to up your SPF for this one.

When a new Beyoncé (opens in new tab) track drops, Monday blues evaporate. And this one's a scorcher.

We first got a taste of this Sia-penned, Timbaland-produced number when it played during Bey's 2013 H&M advertisement (opens in new tab), but the full, hi-quality version of "Standing in the Sun" has finally surfaced and it boasts everything we love in a Beyoncé song — cascading vocals, amorous lyrics, and move-your-body intrumentals — and then some. It's a slice of paradise reminiscent of Queen Bey circa the early 2000's.

The unveiling coincides with the announcement that Beyoncé and Jay Z will be touring together this summer in true Bonnie and Clyde fashion. Seeing Bey perform this tropical number live in the heat of summer is officially on our bucket list. The On the Run Tour begins on June 25 in Miami.
