Beyonce's anticipated sit-down on "Oprah's Next Chapter" airs on Saturday (February 16), so OWN offers up a few excerpts, in which the pop star discusses her relationship with Jay-Z and passion for performing.

In the clip, Mrs. Carter explains how her husband has made her the success she is today -- in her career and as a person. "I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It just gives me such a foundation," she explains.

"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.

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