Behind the scenes with Beyoncé

EXCLUSIVE first look inside her H&M ad

If you liked H&M's high summer TV ad - you know, the one in which Beyoncé as Mrs Carter embodies earth, wind, fire and water in an epic, beach-backed clip - you'll love this exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the shoot itself.

Filmed on Nassau in the Bahamas in January, the ad shows Beyoncé performing new track Standing On The Sun, supported by a cast of dancers and a whole lot of H&M swimwear.


Now, we all know Queen B is no slacker so, when you think about it, co-choreographer Frank Gatson's admission that she 'hasn't really got a chance to rehearse as much as she'd like to' makes perfect sense.

It's just that the finished item looks so slick, it never even crossed our minds.
