Beyonce has signed a £31 million deal with soft drinks giant, Pepsi.

The singer's new promotional deal will see her starring in a new advert for the drink and her face will also appear on a limited run of drinks cans.

Pepsi in turn will sponsor Beyonce's 2013 tour and the promotional campaign will coincide with the release of her new album, which is expected next year.

Pepsi will also fund a host of Beyonce's creative projects, ones which have no direct link to the brand, but are likely to include live events, videos and photo shoots, reports the New York Times.

Of the deal, Beyonce has said: "Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve. As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity."

Most of the £31 million will pay for global media placements and promotions whilst the rest will be split between Beyonce and Pepsi's "creative content development fund".

Beyonce will reportedly release new material prior to her performance at the Super Bowl half-time performance on February 3, 2013.

The singer will provide the mid-game entertainment during the culmination of the American Football season in February next year and, despite having a huge number of hit singles to pick from, will reportedly have new music to share with fans.
