Pop singer Beyonce released 2 new tracks from her new box set, Beyonce Platinum, due in stores and on iTunes next week.
On Tuesday, the 34-year-old mother-of-one teased her fans with a snippet of "Ring Off," an ode to her mother, Tina Knowles, who suffered the public indignity of learning her husband -- and Beyonce's father, Mathew Knowles, cheated and sired a child out of wedlock.
"You took that ring off, after all these years, mama," Beyonce tells her mother in the song's lyrics. "Oh, now the fun begins/Dust yourself off and you love again/You found a new man/Now you shine and you're fine/Like it's my time/You took that ring off."

In "7/11", Beyonce sips on a Slurpee and raps about sweating out her blowout because she's "fresher than you."
