It's time to take a sneak peek at Beyonce's directorial debut. Following HBO's announcement of an impending Queen B documentary, helmed by the singer herself, a trailer for the TV special has been released.

"I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself," Bey admits as the clip opens. "If I'm scared, be sacred. Allow it; release it," she says over fierce performance footage. The preview also shows off-stage shots of the entertainer, including video of her then-burgeoning baby bump.

"Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the person," Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said in a previous statement. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamor to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."

Beyonce's documentary special premieres February 16, 2013 on HBO, just days after her headlining gig at this season's Superbowl Halftime Show. Until then, check out the trailer below.
