Beyonce returned to the stage Friday for the first time since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy. The new mom gave fans a candid look at the preparation that went into her comeback in a behind-the-scenes video.

Queen Bey returns to her “old job” with four Memorial Day Weekend shows at Atlantic City’s Revel resort.

Although admitting to being a bit nervous, Beyonce has been preparing for her comeback for nearly a month.

“I’m enjoying being a mother, so it’s like going back to my old job,” she said. “It’s a little strange, but it’s important that you don’t lose yourself and have your own passions. I’m back to work. I’m back to business.”

Watch as she prepares in the behind-the-scenes videos below.


Tickets are still available for the May 26, 27 and 28 performances.
