But this time Beyonce dropped the sequinned outfits for a leather basque as she writhed about on a wooden chair with her legs spread.

Quite why multi-platinum Queen Bey felt she needed to don fishnets and a leather thong to impress her fans remains a mystery.

Taking a leaf out of Rihanna’s 'pure filth' video for “Pour It Up”, Beyonce appeared on stage straddling a chair, before getting down on all fours to crawl around on the floor.

The couple then got up close and personal when Jay Z took to the stage, dancing together while Jay Z fondled Bey’s bum to prove they really are drunk in love.
