Beyoncé On Jay-Z: 'We Were Friends First' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In the documentary "Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream," audiences get a great sense of the relationship the superstar singer has with her husband, rapper Jay-Z, Oprah says. In this clip from "Oprah's Next Chapter," Beyoncé tells Oprah she would not be the woman she is today if she didn't have Jay-Z in her life.

"It just gives me such a foundation," Beyoncé says of her marriage to Jay-Z. She tells Oprah that being friends for a year and a half before even dating helped to solidify their relationship. "Just to have someone that you just like is so important," she says. "And someone that is honest."

To see the interview in its entirety, tune in to "Oprah's Next Chapter" on OWN, Feb. 16, at 8 p.m. ET.
