Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.

Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.
