BEYONCE Knowles has become the new face of Pepsi.

The 'Love On Top' singer has reportedly signed a $50 million deal with the soft drinks giant for their 'Live for Now' campaign and part of the contract will see her grace a series of limited edition cans in March next year.

Beyonce said: "Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve. As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity."

Brad Jakeman, president of PepsiCo's global beverage group, added: "Consumers are seeking a much greater authenticity in marketing from the brands they love.

"It's caused a shift in the way we think about deals with artists, from a transactional deal to a mutually beneficial collaboration."
