Good news for fans of Beyoncé and emojis: the jack-of-all-trades pop star is now selling T-shirts emblazoned with emojis playing off lyrics from two of her new Beyoncé songs.

How Did Beyonce Keep Her Surprise Album a Secret?

As Fader spotted, for $40, you can now own a white tee with a surfboarder emoji and the word "SURFBOARD," playing off the meme-ified "Drunk In Love" lyric. Not your thing? Grab a a black one with cherry emojis and her song title "BLOW." You can buy both T-shirts at Beyoncé’s official website.

Confused what Queen Bey and emojis have to do with one another? Earlier this spring, a fan created a viral emoji-centric video for "Drunk In Love," essentially recreating the song’s racy lyrics using the colorful — and hilariously adolescent — SMS graphics. While Beyoncé has yet to officially comment on the video, all signs point to her approval – or at least ability to recognize a good business opportunity when it presents itself.

Following her tabloid-frenzy elevator ordeal with husband Jay Z and sister Solange, Beyoncé turned her attention back to her craft, releasing a star-studded action film trailer for their upcoming On the Run summer tour with husband Jay Z that kicks off in Miami at the end of June. The video features a balaclava-sporting Beyoncé, a smack-talking Jay and cameos from Sean Penn, Jake Gyllenhaal, Don Cheadle and Blake Lively.

The singer recently reunited with Destiny’s Child for group member Michelle Williams’ latest single "Say Yes." "[Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé] received an advance copy of the album and called, saying, 'We love "When Jesus Says Yes"… there has to be a Destiny's Child mix of the song,'" Williams said of the origins of the unofficial girl-group reunion. "Kelly did it and Beyoncé got right in the studio and did her part. I kept it a secret because I didn't want anyone to know until it was time."

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
