Beyonce has cancelled her planned concert tonight (May 14) in Belgium because of exhaustion and dehydration.

Her publicist released a statement to the Associated Press which said that the singer has been advised by doctors to rest. Her show at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp will be rescheduled. It is not known if she will play her next tour date, which is at the same venue tomorrow (May 15). "She is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision," reads the statement.

Rumours that the star is pregnant with her second child are currently circulating, with the concert cancellation making fans suspect that there might be truth in the gossip. Beyoncé's Mrs Carter World Tour is due to finish in New York on August 5.

Yesterday a preview of Beyonce's new track 'Rise Up' surfaced online - scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen. Fans uploaded a 25-second snippet of the song to YouTube after it was featured in the trailer for the forthcoming Disney film Epic. Beyonce will star in the animated film as the character Queen Tara, with Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christpher Waltz, Pitbull and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler also set to feature. Epic opens in cinemas internationally from May 24.

Beyonce has unveiled a spate of new songs this year, including the track 'Grown Woman', which premiered via a Pepsi advert shown during this year's Super Bowl, and 'Standing In The Sun', which features in a television commercial for high street retailers H&M. It has not yet been confirmed if either song will appear on the singer's forthcoming new album.
