With a day to go until “Oprah’s Next Chapter” airs on OWN, Oprah has released a couple more excerpts from her exclusive sit-down interview with Beyoncé. In the latest clips, the private superstar gets candid about her relationship with Jay-Z and passion for performing.

The 31-year-old singer credits her husband for making her who she is today. “I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It just gives me such a foundation,” said Mrs. Carter.

“We were friends first for a year and a half before we went on any date—on the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. Just to have someone that you just like is so important. Someone that is honest.”

Oprah teased her about keeping their relationship so private. “I took it as far as I can take it,” laughed Bey.

Despite becoming a mother, she hasn’t lost her passion for performing. “I feel so fortunate to do my job. I love my job. I love singing. I love the way it feels,” said Blue Ivy’s mom, who was back on stage three months after giving birth.

Oprah’s interview with Beyoncé airs on Saturday at 8 p.m. on OWN, followed by the documentary Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream at 9 p.m. on HBO.
