The 'Countdown' star shared a quote about patience this week as fans await news of her new record.

Beyonce has posted a cryptic message about patience online this week which her fans have taken as a reference to her brand new album.

The 'Love On Top' singer's fans have been eagerly awaiting news of her long-gestating fifth studio album, following Beyonce launching a new tour earlier this year.

However, Beyonce posted a hand-written note on Instagram yesterday (11th July) that seemed to be aimed towards those questioning when her album will be out.

"Genius is nothing but a great capacity for patience," the note from Beyonce reads.

The 'Countdown' singer has given fans snippets of new songs like 'Grown Woman' through her commercial activities and her 'The Mrs. Carter Show' world tour, but has yet to announce an official single or release date from her new record.

Earlier this week a solo version of her Jay-Z team-up 'Part II (On The Run)' emerged online with Beyonce taking the lead.

Beyonce's husband Jay-Z revealed this week that they "absolutely" want to have more children in the future.
