So, it turns out Queen Bey has been even busier than we first thought!

We were ridiculously excited when she dropped her surprise self-titled album and 17 (yep, 17!!) music videos to go with it. But now it turns out that Beyonce had recorded 80 songs for the album!!! She must be some kind of Super Woman!

In the latest video about her album, called Part 3 Run 'N Gun, Mrs Carter has been chatting about why she selected certain songs for the record-breaking album.

"When I started picking the songs that I gravitated towards, because I recorded about 80 songs, it was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around that I still love that I loved a year ago when I recorded them."

She goes on to talk about her song Drunk In Love with hubby Jay Z.

"I kind of freestyles the verse, and Jay went in and he started flowing out his verse. We just kind of had a party. It was so great, because it wasn't about any ego, we weren't trying to make a hit record - we were just having fun and I think you can hear that in the record."

So Beyonce's Mrs Carter World Tour is heading back to London next year - here are some snippets from her new videos so you can get up to speed. Pretty fab, huh?!
