Beyoncé visited by Hillary Clinton on set of new music video

The singer is also reportedly finishing up her new album

Beyoncé received a surprise visit from Hillary Clinton while filming a music video earlier this month.

The Democratic presidential candidate met with the popstar on March 24 on the Los Angeles set of her new video, reports US Weekly.

The magazine’s source could not establish whether Clinton will appear in an on-screen cameo, but a second insider confirmed that Beyoncé is working on a new album that is “likely” to be released in April.

At an Iowa town hall in December, the former Secretary of State was asked whether she would rather be president or Beyoncé. “I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer,” Clinton replied.

Beyoncé attended a Clinton fundraiser in New York last May, according to Bloomberg. Her husband, Jay-Z, previously endorsed Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential races.

In February, Beyoncé performed at the Super Bowl halftime show together with Coldplay, following the release of her new song and video ‘Formation’.

The singer will embark on world tour next month, beginning in Miami on April 27. She is due to play the UK during June and July.
