UPDATE (4/19/16): An HBO executive tells USA Today that Lemonade is a one-hour “docu-style” special similar to her 2014 HBO film Life Is But A Dream. Still no word on whether new music or videos will feature in the project, but, c’mon.

Beyoncé‘s “Lemonade” project — which is possibly a music video, or a short film, or a SOPHIE cover, or none of the above — premieres this weekend, and after dropping a vague 20-second teaser over the weekend, HBO has now shared an extended trailer for the “world premiere event.” But if you were hoping for more details about what exactly said event is, you’ll have to keep searching.

The ominous 65-second clip starts with Bey in that same hunched-over pose (praying?) from the original teaser, and as various images pop up, she whispers koans like “The past and the present merge to meet us here” and “Why can’t you see me?” Eventually the star is shown in a yellow dress wreaking havoc on a beauty spa.

“Lemonade” premieres Saturday (April 23) at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Watch the trailer below.
