Posting a five-second video on her YouTube channel, Beyonce notified fans that she will be making an announcement of some sort on April 4 at 9:00 a.m. EST.
In the video (shown above), the singer is shown in sheer black clothing, before the camera pans to her metallic gloved hand. She is promoting her announcement with the hashtag #beyherenow.
The choosing of 4/4 as the date to make an announcement is no surprise as Beyonce has repeatedly spoken about her love for the number four, even naming her fourth album, “4.” (The “Ivy” in Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce’s daughter’s name, channels IV, the Roman numeral for four. Both Beyonce and Jay-Z are born on the fourth day of their respective birth-months.)
“We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me,” Beyonce said in an interview with Billboard. “It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday, and a lot of my friends’ birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.”
