Beyoncé has already landed the covers of "GQ," "Shape" and "Vogue." Now, she is covering British "Vogue" and it is her first ever U.K. cover for the elite publication.

A photo of the cover was leaked earlier this week, and shows Beyoncé showing off her toned abs in a striped crop top and sparkling blue skirt.

She recently spoke with Vogue about her partnership with Gucci’s international campaign Chime For Change. She is the co-founder and concert artistic director of the campaign. She will headline a concert in London on June 1 in an effort to raise funds for female empowerment.

"Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible," said the superstar at a press conference in London. "I am excited for us to come together on June 1 to bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage."

Last month, Beyoncé covered U.S. Vogue for the second time and talked about her daughter, Blue Ivy, and having more children.

“She’s my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend,” Beyoncé says about Blue Ivy, who turned 1 in January.

“I felt very maternal around eight months.  And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. … But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door." 

Beyoncé also talked about whether she is ready for Blue Ivy to have a baby brother or sister.

“When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children.' And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when."
