The Queen of the Beyhive released the fall and winter collections for her athleisure line Ivy Park today, and the commercial she made for it is blowing our minds. The way Beyoncé talks about working out is so intense, we feel like we can skip the gym today just because we watched it.
“I stretch my body out like the horizon,” Beyoncé’s voice says dramatically over a montage of herself and others stretching and dancing in Ivy Park gear. “I teach my body every day to go a little farther. I know that my body can bend and not break. I know what it’s capable of. I’ve seen it perform miracles.”
She continues, “Even when my throat is burning and my lungs feel like they’re drowning, sweat is stinging my eyes and my feet feel like they’re gonna explode, when I’m about to give up, I picture that one person I love more than anyone. I picture them wherever they are in the world, and I imagine myself running towards them. I see their face, and they’re smiling and cheering and they’re so proud of me. They’re shouting my name, and I make it to the end. I push past the pain and I find love.”
Like, whoa, Bey.

But what else could we expect from the woman who gave us “Lemonade”? When an album isn’t enough, make it into a TV musical event. And when a commercial for sweatpants isn’t enough, make it into this.
