We guess for Beyonce, it’s fourth times a charm!

The queen of hip hop and R&B revealed to Billboard that the name of her latest, upcoming album will be simply titled, ‘4.’

So, what’s the story behind the mysterious title?

Queen B dished to Billboard that not only is it her fourth solo effort, but the number 4 seems to pop up everywhere in her life. She explained:

“Everywhere I look, I see them calling it ‘4.’ I had a whole other name and concept, but I keep seeing that the fans love the name ‘4,’ and I think it would be a really nice thing to let them name the record. We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. 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.”

Simple, yet powerful. We approve!

Beyonce will also be honored at the upcoming Billboard music awards on May 22 with the Billboard Millennium Award.

Congrats!
