Listen to Beyonce on iHeartRadio

Beyonce is reportedly planning to drop a surprise on the pop music world in the coming months. 

A source tells the "New York Daily News" the superstar will release a new single in late November or early December.  The plan apparently involves Beyonce making a move to take out the competition from behind, by putting out her highly anticipated new single right in the middle of several other highly anticipated fall releases. 

Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga all have major albums on the way in the fourth-quarter sales period.  The source calls the song "massive" and says it would be an official single, as opposed to Beyonce's early 2013 releases like "Bow Down" and "Standing On The Sun." 

A video for the top-secret single is already shot and ready to go.  The Terry Richardson-directed video was filmed in Coney Island over the summer.
