In a new behind-the-scenes video, the pop superstar is seen planning and rehearsing dance routines for her four consecutive gigs at the Revel resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, which kick off Friday.
Beyonce also talks about her nerves ahead of the sold-out shows, which come just four months after she gave birth to her daughter Blue Ivy in January.
She says, "It is exciting. I feel a little nervous. I'm enjoying being a mother but this is like going back to my old job, and it's a little strange but it's important that you don't lose yourself. You have to have your own passion. I'm back to work. I'm back to business!"
Bey also consults with her rapper husband Jay-Z at a setlist meeting, does push-ups and exercises, sketches her set at a stage design meeting, and warms up her vocal cords by singing her hit "Halo," joking: "You know I haven't sang in a year!"
Beyonce's last concerts took place in August when she played four dates at New York's Roseland Ballroom.
