King Bey strikes again.

Beyonce told us that she is having twins because whatever the project even if it’s creating life, she must top herself with every new attempt. After she posted a series of images on her site, where Blue Ivy blesses her mummy’s belly, Beyoncé hangs out in water and surrounds herself with a bunch of lucky flowers. While the aesthetic is wonderful it is far from random, the shoot is titled ‘I Have Three Hearts’ after a Warsan Shire poem.

I Have Three Hearts by Warsan Shire

The poem precedes the ethereal photos currently uploaded to the Queens official website. But the conceptual art pictures are the brainchild of Awol Erizku. (You can look at all the pictures on the Beyonce website)
