If you, much like the other millions of Peloton members, are still trying to catch your breath after last year's earth-shattering Artist Series featuring none other than Queen Bey herself, then "Hold Up," sip some "Lemonade," and prepare to get in "Formation because round two is here. That's right: the newest installment of the Peloton x Beyoncé Artist Series officially arrived Tuesday, and yes, it is "Flawless" (sorry, not sorry for all the Bey-themed references).

Over the next three days, Peloton will serve up 72 hours of content in the form of 17 classes all set to songs from Beyoncé herself. The highly anticipated release (which is much bigger than the first installment, BTW), is a global event with content slated to be streamed globally from Peloton Studios New York and the new Peloton Studios London. And given Peloton fans have been yearning for more Beyoncé content ever since the superstar signed a multi-year deal with the brand last year, it's unsurprising that the company's 1.6 million Instagram followers uttered a collected gasp Sunday when a clip set to "MY POWER" lit up the page. "BEY HIVE ASSEMBLE 👑 🐝," commented one Instagram follower while another replied, "Beyoncé week?! Best week of the year 🐝." (Related: The Best Peloton Instructor to Match Your Workout Style)

The Peloton x Beyoncé collab isn't just about iconic music and artistry. In fact, the original mission of the partnership also included gifting the Peloton App to current students at select historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). With this new installment, Beyoncé and Peloton will expand their social impact partnership by providing the fitness facilities of 10 HBCUs (which includes Bennett College, Clark Atlanta University, Grambling State University, Hampton University, Howard University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, Spelman College, Texas Southern University and Wilberforce University) with Peloton bikes this fall. As part of the initiative, Peloton will also continue to pursue long-term recruiting partnerships across the internship, undergraduate, and graduate levels while also shining a light on HBCU students.

This new chapter of the Artist Series will also feature live programming, in addition to daily, on-demand classes across nine modalities, including cycling, treadmill, tread bootcamp, and equipment-free offerings such as strength, barre, stretching, and an outdoor run/walk. This means the series will be accessible for everyone through the Peloton App (Buy It, first 30 days free then $13 monthly, onepeloton.com). The lineup will also include classes in three languages, English, German, and Spanish, which is a first for Peloton.

"The Beyoncé Artist Series allows you to mentally draw deeply from internal and external places of power and this is the soundtrack that will transport you," said Gwen Bethel Riley, Peloton's Head of Music, in a statement. "We are honored to have designed a new series of classes that elevate movement and music on the Peloton platform. This empowering message will motivate our community to show up for each other and for themselves."
