Beyoncé's Choreographers Talk Coachella

May 3, 2018

Since November, Chris Grant and JaQuel Knight have been up to their elbows in marching bands, musicians and dancers — dozens of men and women from an array of traditions.

Beyoncé may have been front and center at her spectacular Coachella performances last month. But two of her secret weapons were Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight, the show’s main choreographers.

From the start Beyoncé was clear about what she wanted. “She said, ‘Let’s do a homecoming,’” Mr. Knight said. “Boom. A nice, clear concept that we were all able to snap into and execute.”

In the nearly two-hour performance, references to homecoming at historically black colleges and universities (H.B.C.U.s) — complete with a marching band and a glittering majorette solo — lived alongside dance styles ranging from flexing, a form born on the streets of Brooklyn, to stepping, a percussive form popular in fraternities and sororities.

Beginning in December, Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight worked with Beyoncé’s music team and started their preliminary dance preparations. By January, they started skeleton-crew rehearsals. “We worked with 12 dancers for a month just to start to further develop the ideas that we laid down in December,” Mr. Knight said. “We started to build choreography.”

Michelle Williams Talks Beyonce's Coachella Performance

April 29, 2018

Michelle Williams knows how to keep a secret. “We’re the secret queens,” the singer tells Billboard in the wake of performing two consecutive weekends at Coachella with headliner Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. The trio, who rose to commercial acclaim in the late ‘90s and early aughts as Destiny’s Child, had been keeping the surprise under wraps since February, when Bey reached out to her former band members and asked them to join her for a medley of their mega-hits including “Say My Name,” “Lose My Breath” and “Soldier.”

“It’s just like old girlfriends coming together,” explains the 37-year-old, who last reunited as Destiny’s Child at the 2015 Stellar Awards where they performed her upbeat gospel single “Say Yes.” “It’s something that when the three of us come together, we all know we feel safe within each other. Like I got your back. We’re good. I really love that about us.”

Since Destiny’s Child went on hiatus in the wake of their last album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, Williams hasn’t slowed. She’s put out four solo full-lengths including her final release, 2014’s Journey to Freedom (which won’t be her last); starred on stage as leads in Chicago and Aida; launched her own furniture and candle line Believe by Michelle; and, more recently, got engaged to pastor Chad Johnson just prior to her Coachella performance. Still teeming with excitement from the pair of shows, Williams explains how it all came together.

There were rumors before Coachella that a Destiny’s Child reunion might happen. How did the conversations begin for this? Did Beyoncé call you and just say, “It’s time?”

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2

April 22, 2018

Beyoncé returned to Coachella last night for the second weekend—and her second performance as headliner. The performance wasn't streamed this time, and despite an initial announcement, SiriusXM radio's live stream didn't include her set.

Visually the show was refreshed, with Beyoncé and her 100 dancers and band members washed in shades of magenta and virtually every ensemble the singer wore was swapped out for a new look.

The set-list, however, remained untouched and she was again joined by husband Jay-Z, former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as her sister Solange Knowles. There was an extra surprise, as the singer was also joined by J. Balvin for a quick run of "Mi Gente."

Beyoncé's Coachella merchandise collection was expanded with two new items, which are now available on the Coachella Pop-Up Store website.

Beyonce's Second Coachella Weekend Performance Won't Be Streamed

April 19, 2018

Confirmed: Beychella’s second weekend won’t feature the exact same iconic set we saw before. Backup dancer Jo’Artis Mijo Ratti told Variety that the team is “switching up a couple things, so there could still be a wow factor.” The bad news: Beyoncé’s second Coachella set this weekend won’t stream on YouTube, nor are there plans to re-air it. However, members of the Beyhive can live-stream the audio for Weekend 2 on SiriusXM’s Coachella Radio.

Beyonce's Coachella Performance Broke YouTube Viewing Record

April 18, 2018

As arguably one of the best live shows of recent times, Beyoncé's Coachella performance broke a major viewing record on YouTube during its live stream on Saturday, April 14. According to a press release, this year's Coachella was reportedly the festival's biggest to date, bringing over 41 million live views from fans in 232 countries over the weekend. Beyoncé's Saturday stage show alone garnered 458K simultaneous viewers around the world, making her awe-inspiring presentation the most viewed Coachella performance of all time, as well as the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

Amidst the performance, Beyoncé became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in its nearly 20-year history, and she absolutely made it a point to use the platform to showcase all of the beauty of her roots throughout the entire history-making night. Making mention of the monumental moment, Beyoncé spoke to the audience, saying, “Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline."

Beyonce's Mom 'Stands Corrected' After Questioning Bey's Coachella Vision

April 17, 2018

Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, knew her daughter would perform a headlining set for the ages at Coachella, but she was unsure as to how the performance would be received.

Now, she's admitting that she "stands corrected," as a revealing conversation with the pop star showed her how important it was for her to stick to her vision.

Lawson shared part of an intimate conversation between her and Beyoncé about the historic Coachella set, which drew inspiration from the marching bands, step teams and dance crews of HBCU, or Historically Black Colleges and Universities. "I told Beyoncé that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get," she writes.

"Her brave response to me made me feel a bit selfish and ashamed. She said 'I have worked very hard to get to the point where I have a true voice and at this point in my life and my career I have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular.'"

She went on to point out that Bey's mission was to unite the audience at Coachella and encourage understanding, even if they weren't familiar with HBCU: "She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to 'LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING' and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap."

"She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing Historically Black Colleges and Universities," Lawson continued. "I stand corrected ❤️"

Olivier Rousteing on Dressing Beyoncé in Balmain for Coachella 2018

April 15, 2018

It all started when stylist Marni Senofonte approached Olivier Rousteing after his Fall 2018 runway show for Balmain and explained to him that she was trying to find the right designer to create custom looks for Beyoncé’s upcoming Coachella performances. “Marni told me that the shows were all about survivors and that B was looking for something in a military style,” Rousteing says. “Our silhouettes and our sort of Mad Max, futuristic take on military looks for Fall were a perfect fit.” But, of course, Queen Bey was not about to wear something that was going to be mass-produced, so Rousting went to work with Senofonte and the rest of Beyoncé’s team to create two custom Balmain stage wardrobes, one for each of her performances tonight and next Saturday night. Rousteing also dressed the 200-some dancers on stage, as well as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who reunited with Beyoncé for a Destiny’s Child throwback moment. Rousteing only had a few weeks to pull it all together, spending sleepless nights and long days creating the Egyptian-inspired gold-and-black cape with intricate embellishments; as well as a hologram-fabric black jacket and bodysuit; a collegiate-style embellished yellow hoodie with “BAE” written on the front; a camouflage and mesh minidress; and a top decorated with a 2018 Beyoncé crest that shows a bee, a raised fist, a panther, and an Egyptian goddess. “By the end it felt like Marni and I were in a relationship,” the designer said with a laugh. “We went to bed texting and emailing one another and woke up doing the same.”

Beyoncé to reunite with Destiny's Child at Coachella?

April 14, 2018

Buzz that Beyoncé will reunite with Destiny’s Child at Coachella has come and gone — but a music insider tells Page Six, “It’s on!”

“Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child are reuniting,” claims the source. “It was teased, rumored, squashed, so nothing much else was said . . . But it’s happening.”

The insider said the added surprise is “to make up for the fact she was unable to perform last year,” when pregnant.

“The girls really wanted it and felt they owed it to the fans.”

Jack White Created an Alternate Version of 'Daddy Lessons'

March 12, 2018

In the most recent Rolling Stone cover story, former White Stripes frontman Jack White revealed the existence of an unreleased version of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons.”

White spoke openly of his collaborations with Beyonce, saying the two were supposed to take to Saturday Night Live to perform "Don't Hurt Yourself" -- the searing cut from Lemonade that explicitly referred to Jay-Z’s infidelity, laced with White's cryptic guitar keys -- though the plan never came to fruition.

He also revealed another unreleased collab with Queen Bey, saying the singer had requested an (even more) country-inspired version of “Daddy Lessons,” citing blues musician Seasick Steve as the alternate arrangement’s inspiration. White was impressed by the request, but his version of the song remained unused on Lemonade.

Beyoncé Is Prepping for Coachella 2018 by Going Vegan

Coachella Announces Full 2018 Lineup

January 3, 2018

The lineup for the 2018 Coachella Music and Arts Festival has been announced, and headlining the festival will be a trio of superstars: Canadian R&B singer the Weeknd, pop diva Beyoncé and Detroit rapper Eminem.

Now in its 19th year as a festival, the Goldenvoice–promoted event marks the symbolic opening of the annual festival season. This year‘s installment, which will take place over two weekends from April 13-22, marks the first time a rock act hasn’t headlined.

Also featured will be rapper Tyler, the Creator, experimental pop guitarist St. Vincent, the breakout R&B singer SZA, sibling trio Haim and the wildly popular New York rapper Cardi B.

Veterans taking the stage will include former Talking Heads singer David Byrne, British beat band Jamiroquai, prog-metal band A Perfect Circle and disco-funk producer Nile Rodgers and Chic.

The shift away from rock and booming EDM has most benefited rap, which will be represented through artists including “Rock Star” rapper Post Malone, respected Long Beach artist Vince Staples, the Atlanta trio Migos, ascendent collective Brockhampton and upstart Princess Nokia.

Still, there will be guitars, and they’ll be carried in by members of bands including the War on Drugs, Alt-J, Priests, Fidlar, Fleet Foxes, Cherry Glazerr and the Regrettes.

Remaining tickets go on sale Jan. 5 at noon PST on the Coachella site. General admission passes are $429, while VIP wristbands cost $999. Prices include all taxes and shipping fees.

Check out the full lineup below.

JaQuel Knight Talks Beyonce's 2018 Coachella Performance

December 7, 2017

“Amazing, beyond, iconic, life.” Those are the four words Beyonce’s lead choreographer, JaQuel Knight, used to describe the music superstar’s upcoming Coachella performance.

The GRAMMY winner is set to headline the annual Indio, California music festival in 2018, her first major gig since giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir Carter in June. Beyonce was originally scheduled to perform at the 2017 festival, but postponed her appearance after announcing she was pregnant.

“We're getting ready for Coachella and you know, that's going to change the game,” Knight teased of the highly anticipated performance. “Be ready for a good time. A good ol' time.”

Knight, who was recently named one of Forbes’ 2018 "30 Under 30," first worked with Beyonce while choreographing her iconic 2009 "Single Ladies" music video.

“‘Single Ladies’ is still a moment that I have yet to put into words,” he said of the VMA-winning video. “The impact that that piece had on culture and music and what it's done for Beyonce, even, is just mind-blowing. It's something that's going to hopefully last forever.”

Beyonce performed yesterday during the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the end of the concert she asked the crowd to repeat XO, which is the title of the song she filmed a music video for last month, and danced to the song "Ah Lek Lek Lek"! You can watch the full performance below.



Chris Grant choreographed for Beyonce, and like many young dancers of his generation, it all started in front of the television in his mother's living room.

"I've been dancing since I was 2 and looking up to Michael Jackson from a very young age," Grant said in a recent interview with HuffPost Entertainment. "I would just come home from school and other people would go out and play or do sports, but I would just be stuck in front of my TV, replaying videos and learning every word and move and trying to figure out how he moved his body like that."

The dedication (or obsession) paid off: Jackson picked Grant to be a backup dancer on his ultimately ill-fated "This Is It" tour (Jackson died before the shows began). "For me to be at the audition, doing the same moves that I was doing in the living room in my mom's house was crazy for me," Grant said. "I had to pull myself together, especially when Michael walked into the room, and I did. I just pretended I was back in the room at my mom's house, I tuned everyone else out and I just gave it my all. Sure enough, he was able to see that."

And though dreams of touring with Jackson evaporated with the singer's death, Grant has played a part in the King of Pop's legacy, starring as Jackson himself in the "Michael Forever" tribute concert in 2011. So by the time he linked up with Beyonce, the contemporary performer who some have identified as coming closest to Jackson's combination of vocal ability and dance acumen, it's safe to say he had some confidence.

"I compare her to Michael because not only does she have the voice and the look, but the movement. The way it all ties together is just very important," Grant said of working with Beyonce. "Some people may lack the singing, the movement or the feeling, but she has it all. I was really intrigued by that, and I just wanted to help in any way that I could help. I sure learn from her -- she gives me a lot of information. That's what I love about the whole situation with her, is that we are learning from each other." Read more...

The inaugural Sound of Change concert, organized by Gucci’s Chime for Change charity organization, is set to air on NBC on Sunday, June 2nd.

ABC reveals on Thursday, “Highlights from next month’s Sound of Change Live concert in London, promoting improved education, health and justice for women and girls around the world, will be televised by NBC as a two-hour special.”

Madonna, James Franco and Salma Hayek are among presenters for the evening.

Over the last three days I attened three Beyonce concerts: both shows in Berlin as well as her gig during the Orange Warsaw Festival in my home country! Unfortunately, I was able to take pictures only during the first Berlin concert, after which I also had the opportunity to meet Ty Hunter (Beyonce's stylist) and one of the Les Twins brothers. You can find all of my pics in the gallery along with professional photos from Warsaw and Munich.





Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails top an eclectic lineup for Budweiser's second annual Made In America Festival, scheduled to return to Philadelphia for Labor Day weekend on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Jay-Z once again curated this year's roster, but will not perform unlike last year's headlining set. Tickets went on sale Wednesday to American Express cardmembers and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page exclusively through Tuesday April 16 at 10 p.m. ET. Public on sale begins Wednesday April 17.

Other performers announced today, via Made In America's Spotify playlist, include Queens of the Stone Age, Deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Nero, 2 Chainz, Gaslight Anthem, A$AP Rocky, Walk The Moon, Solange, Feed Me, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, Emeli Sande, Haim, Schoolboy Q, Ab Soul, GTA, Robert DeLong, Red Light, Rudimental, Aluna George, Jay Rock, Jessie Rose and TJR.

"The point of having that diversity in our music lineup we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music," says Paul Chibe, Budweiser's VP of marketing. "Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris or Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture."

The inaugural Made In America was a notable success, having grossed $5 million in ticket sales and attracting nearly 80,000 people, according to Billboard Boxscore. This year's festival will also once again benefit the United Ways of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, Lancaster County, PA. The festival will also be produced for a second year by ad agency Translation, in which Jay-Z is a partner.
John Legend talks about teaming up with Beyoncé to headline Chime For Change gig at London's Twickenham Stadium.

Talking to The Huffington Post UK in London about the line-up, the 'Ordinary People' singer said: "It's a pretty dynamic group of people and I'm proud to be part of it."

"We have a very high mutual respect for each other," says Grammy Award-winning singer John Legend about Beyoncé, whom he's teaming up with for a huge London concert.

Legend, who is on the same record label as Beyoncé and says he knows her "socially", confessed he would love to duet with her on stage at the show. With an impressive back catalogue between them, what would they sing?
"I don't know, I'll have to talk to Mrs Carter about that," he laughs.

According to Legend "it makes perfect sense" to stage the concert in London. "Why not London? London knows how to throw a good party, as the Olympics proved recently, and it's such an international city that's connected to so many of the cities we want to work in."
Beyoncé Knowles will headline a global concert in London on Saturday June 1, as part of Gucci's international campaign Chime For Change which aims to raise funds for female empowerment. The event, which will be broadcast around the world, will also feature performances from Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Rita Ora, Laura Pausini and Timbaland. The news was announced this morning at a press conference in London.

"Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible," said Chime For Change co-founder and concert artistic director, Beyoncé Knowles. "I am excited for us to come together on June 1 to bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage."

As well as music, the concert - entitled The Sound Of Change Live - will also show inspirational short films and stories highlighting women's global issues. The event, to be held at Twickenham Stadium, will be produced by Control Room's Kevin Wall and Aaron Grosky, who were behind Live Earth and Live Aid.

Gucci will provide financial assistance to put on the show, so that all ticket sales will go to towards charities fighting for better education, justice and health for women. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday March 27. There will also be the option to choose which charity ticket sales will be donated to.

"This is the emergency and the opportunity of today," said Gucci creative director and Chime For Change co-founder Frida Giannini. "We have reached a significant moment in the history of girls' and women's empowerment and now is the time for change. On June 1 at Twickenham Stadium, I hope that The Sound Of Change Live will help the voices calling for change to become so loud that they cannot be ignored."
