  • Beyonce is leaping ahead in the raunch race against rivals Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and even Lady Gaga with the release of seductive new photos to promote her upcoming album.

    The “Single Ladies” even goes topless with her intimate parts barely shielded by her hair and a furry boa.

    The photos are the latest effort to attract attention. And, boy, do they.

    She spreads her legs while posing in stirrups at the end of long ropes, clad in fetish attire. Could it be another nod to BDSM, a la Rihanna?

    Other photos are more high fashion, but also have a decadent edge.

    “The album is definitely an evolution. It’s bolder than the music in my previous albums because I’m bolder. The more mature I become and the more life experiences I have, the more I have to talk about,” she said recently.

    “I really focused on songs being classics, songs that would last, songs that I could sing when I’m 40 and when I’m 60.”

    She describes the album’s 12 tracks as a “musical gumbo,” according to her Web site.

    “Much like the dish, the album serves as a melting pot of musical styles punctuated by her undeniable vocal abilities,” it says.

    She’s already dropped two singles “Run the World (Girls)” and “1+1.”

    Her new album, entitled “4” will hit the streets on June 26. Until then, Beyonce is serving up some spicy hot photos.
