It was a Beyonce takeover last night on TV when her mini documentary “Beyonce: Year of 4” aired across all major music networks: MTV, BET, VH1 and Centric. In the TV special, Queen King B gives her fans a behind the scenes look at the preparation of her newly released album “4.”

“After I finished the last tour I was a bit overwhelmed and over worked,” she says. “My mother was the person that preached to me and almost harassed me everyday after I was doing the last world tour. ‘You really need to live your life and open your eyes and you don’t want to wake up with no memories and never really [have] been able to see the world.’ I never even realized I needed a year off and I never realized that I didn’t know how to take a year off.”
