Beyoncé reportedly got a hefty cheque for her upcoming performance in Dubai this weekend.

Though it is invite-only, a few lucky fans caught a glimpse of Beyoncé in action during her sound check. Footage emerged online of Beyoncé performing a slew of hit records, like "Naughty Girl," "Halo," "Spirit" and "Freedom. Additionally, she rehearsed two of her biggest hits with Jay-Z, "Drunk In Love" and "Crazy In Love." Perhaps, this indicates that Hov might pull up.

Beyoncé's performance at the Atlantis The Royal resort during the grand opening is expected to draw in some significant A-Listers. The resort consists of 231 luxury apartments, 693 hotel rooms, and 102 suites.

The upcoming performance marks Beyoncé's first concert in roughly five years. On top of that, it's rumored that the Dubai show serves as a launching pad for the highly anticipated Renaissance tour. Beyoncé hasn't confirmed dates for the tour but tickets will undoubtedly be costly.
