Friday marks the one-year anniversary of Beyoncé's game-changing, surprise self-titled album, and a year later, she's treated us to another surprise.



Okay, it’s not quite another Beyoncé, but this new mini-documentary is  still worth every second. In the black-and-white short film Yours and Mine, Bey narrates an inspirational, heartfelt account of her own life and worldview that mirrors much of the sentiment of her 2011 HBO doc, Life Is but a Dream.

Beyonce's New Surprise Album Is Actually a Platinum Box Set With New Songs

It opens with the line "I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous and walk down a street just like everyone else." The clip isn't simply about how Beyonce wishes she were ordinary, but she does a wonderful job of connecting with the viewer throughout the narrative, which also touches on her childhood (especially the strength of her mother), marriage, feminism and even life and death.
