To celebrate the imminent return of the 'Crazy In Love' singer, Capital is taking a look at what the Destiny's Child singer has planned for the next twelve months and also some predictions we would love to see happen.
Beyonce will follow in the footsteps of such stars as The Rolling Stones, Madonna and the Black Eyed Peas when she takes to the stage in New Orleans on 3rd February for the annual NFL event. She's set to be joined by 100 fans at one point during the set and will no doubt be out to push all the stops to make her appearance one of the most memorable of all time in typical Queen Bey style.
After her husband Jay-Z headlined the festival in 2008, he paved the way for Beyonce to steal the show in 2011. With so much speculation surrounding who will be announced as the headliners for the festival's return in 2013, what a curve ball it would be to give Beyonce back-to-back slots on the Pyramid stage.
Shortly after she performs at the Super Bowl, the singer will be unveiling an in-depth behind the scenes look at her career in a new documentary. The singer is also taking the reigns of the project as director. Could this be the start of Beyonce Nolan?
Could the world be set to see 'Telephone: The Sequel'? After both stars posted pictures of themselves wearing a pair of earrings with the word 'Ratchet', and Gaga confirming she had recorded a song with that title, it seems like the stage is set for round two of one of the greatest female pop team-ups in history.
The 'Countdown' star was apparently spotted leaving a recording studio alongside Justin Timberlake at the end of 2012 fueling speculation the 'Sexy Back' star was to make his return to music alongside Beyonce on her comeback single. This would also lead nicely into a guest appearance at the Super Bowl. Just don't mention THAT wardrobe malfunction.
Ryan Tedder, Kanye West, The Dream and Ne-Yo have all been linked with the singer's new fifth studio album in what is one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
Taylor Swift is great friends with the British star and said how the singer's popularity in the US continues to gather pace. The country star revealed artists such as Justin Bieber and Beyonce were queuing up to work with him. Could Beyonce be the one that truly brings Ed to the forefront of US music and creates one of the biggest surprise pop friendships of the year?
What better way to show some of the new blood appearing at the Grammy Awards in February how to do it then by getting up on stage and strutting her stuff. The singer is one of the Grammys' most decorated female star's of all time, so it seems only fitting the singer makes a cameo at this year's event.
The star is often known to wow on the red carpet and there is no grander stage then Hollywood's biggest night as the Oscars come to town in February. There will be hundreds of actors and actresses looking to out-do one another with the best outfit of the night, but when Beyonce is involved, the competition always goes up a notch.
In late 2012, Beyonce signed up with beverage brand titans Pepsi in a deal worth an estimated $50 million. The company has provided the world with some hilarious ads over the years, most recently with One Direction and American football star Drew Brees. We expect something even better from the 'Love On Top' singer. Picture: Courtesy Of Pepsi
Rumours first started circulating that the singer was expecting her second child back in September, something which was quickly quashed by Jay-Z. However, after recently celebrating Blue Ivy's first birthday, will 2013 be the year the happy couple look to add to their family? Picture: helloblueivycarter.tumblr.com
Beyonce's collaboration with her mum Tina Knowles on their House Of Dereon range has produced some of the singer's most stylish outfits and she even turned New York into her catwalk to post some shots of new items on her Tumblr account. We're sure that whatever Bey does in 2013 - she'll look great doing it.
Jay-Z first hinted at an all female collaboration between Scottish star Emeli and his wife after hearing the 'Read All About It' star wanted to work with the 'Crazy In Love' singer. He has since teased the possibility of making her dreams come true.
It's one of the most important editions of the publication and the celebrity who adorns the cover is often a much sought after role. Last year saw 2012's champion Adele take centre stage, but it seems Vogue shares the opinion that 2013 is set to belong to Beyonce after she is rumoured to be appearing on the front of the magazine.
Her last major acting role came in 2009's Obsessed and she is set to voice a character in the new animated flick Epic. Could 2013 also be the year Beyonce puts her acting shoes back on? She also came in third in Capital's poll of the next Bond girl, perhaps Bey can also sing the theme to the next 007 movie as well?
The girl group released a new greatest hits collection back in November 2012 and fans are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see Kelly, Michelle and Beyonce back on stage together. Could her Super Bowl performance pack more surprises than we first expected?
After the Scottish star won the US Open in 2012, she penned an open letter of congratulations to the tennis star commending his achievement. She's often spotted at Flushing Meadows in the US, but it would be great to see Bey sat at Wimbledon and offering a few new words of encouragement to Andy to help him capture that elusive title. She's already conquered many worlds, from music to acting to fashion. Let's see if sport is next on the list!
It's been four years since Beyonce gave the world what Kanye West described as (interrupting Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs in 2009) "one of the best videos of all time". 2012 saw 'Gangnam Style's' horse dance take over - and who better to see in 2013's top dancing moves than the 'Countdown' singer?
The ongoing friendship between Beyonce and the First Lady has been an endearing story to watch with the pair openly gushing about each other in interviews and letters. Could the two female stars go the extra mile and join forces for a new campaign as they take on the world one step at a time? Only time will tell!
