The rumors are true. Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a joint album, according to Detail.

While on the red carpet at the Grammys, the “Drunk in Love” producer revealed that he is involved in the long-rumored project.

“I’m working with a couple of new projects that I don’t want to unveil, and then me and Beyoncé and Jay Z are actually doing something together this year,” Detail told Billboard.

He hinted at a full album from hip-hop’s power couple. “When you think of Jay and Bey together, you think ‘album.’ You should already know,” said Detail, who won his first Grammy for Best R&B Song for “Drunk in Love.”

When asked if the album would arrive this year, he responded, “In my imaginary mind, I will work to say it’s true.”

In September, DJ Skee reported that Beyoncé and Jay Z were planning a joint LP for a late 2014/early 2015 release. Read more...
The complete winners list of the 2015 NAACP Image Awards has been revealed. Beyonce was among the winners at the awards event airing on Friday night, February 6 as she took home the Outstanding Female Artist trophy after edging out competitors including Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige and Ledisi. Congratulations!

UPDATE: Beyonce took to Facebook to thank for her award:

"Humbled and very grateful for the NAACP Image Award received last night. Thank you!"
Nicki Minaj’s collaboration with Beyoncé on a remix of “Flawless” was one of the most electrifying musical moments of 2014. So when Minaj was recording her third album, The Pinkprint, Beyoncé was happy to return the favor by guesting on Minaj’s song “Feeling Myself” — lending that distinctive Yoncé swagger to Minaj’s ode to self-celebration of all kinds. (Good luck finding a better put-down than this one, courtesy of Minaj: “Bitches ain’t got punchlines or flow / I have both, and an empire, also.”)

In a new interview with TIME, on stands Feb. 6, Minaj opens up about the challenges of building her business, body image pressures in the music industry and the abortion she had as a teenager. But she also has a lot to say about her work with Bey.

“When I did ‘Flawless,’ she said that she would do something for The Pinkprint,” Minaj says. “I was ecstatic. She had ‘Feeling Myself’ — she wanted to know how I felt about it. I said, ‘I love it.’ I knew girls were going to be posting pictures on Instagram saying ‘#feelingmyself.’ I told Beyoncé that. I was like, ‘You already know what’s going to happen.'”

But both performers wanted to recreate the magic. “There was pressure,” Minaj says. “‘Flawless’ impacted so hard. But people seemed to love ‘Feeling Myself,’ too. I was excited that we got another one. With ‘Flawless,’ it makes girls feel good about themselves. You could say, ‘I’m feeling myself’ or ‘I’m flawless.’ It’s something every girl wants to say.” Read more...

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Nicki Minaj has selected Beyonce-featuring jam “Feeling Myself” as the next single from The Pinkprint. “Radio has really gravitated to their own songs, like I’m guessing ‘Feeling Myself’ is the next urban song,” the rap diva told Hot 97. “They picked it on their own.” It’s an absolute no-brainer given the success of their previous collaboration, “Flawless,” on urban radio and the song’s popularity on iTunes. In fact, “Feeling Myself” is currently best-selling track from The Pinkprint — even ahead of the femcee’s official new single “Only.” Listen to the interview below.

A retrospective short film celebrating the one-year anniversary of the self-titled visual album, BEYONCÉ.

In only its second week on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Beyoncé's "7/11" reaches No. 1, granting the singer her eighth chart-topping title as a solo artist.

Beyoncé is now in a three-way tie with Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys for the fourth-most No. 1s among women in the 56 years since the chart launched as a sales/airplay hybrid tally. Only Aretha Franklin (with 20 No. 1s), Janet Jackson (16), Mariah Carey (10) have more. (Gladys Knight has also accumulated 10 No. 1s, but nine of those came as part of the group Gladys Knight & The Pips.)

Beyoncé also tallied four No. 1s in 1998-2000 as part of the group Destiny's Child before reigning for the first time as a soloist with "Crazy in Love," featuring Jay Z, in 2003.

"7/11" -- one of the new songs on the deluxe reissue of Beyonce's self-titled album -- also earns the week's Streaming Gainer honors. It jumps 52 percent in domestic streams (from 7 to 11 million -- fitting, given its title) in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. It leaps 12-2 on Streaming Songs, her highest appearance since "Drunk In Love," featuring Jay Z, spent four weeks atop the two-year old chart in February.
It might not claim the #7 or #11 position, but Beyonce’s “7/11″ does reach a new high on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

The superstar’s latest release rises five places to #13 on Billboard’s weekly, all-encompassing track chart. The rise comes courtesy what Billboard identifies as the “biggest gain in streams” among Hot 100 members.

Following a deluxe reissue of Beyonce's self-titled 2013 album, its sales soar by 713 percent to 22,000 in the week ending Nov. 30, according to Nielsen Music. It vaults 18-4 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, with Greatest Gainer honors. It's right behind Beyonce's new Beyonce (More Only) EP, which contains just the new bonus material from the deluxe album. Only opens at No. 3 with 43,000 and also tops R&B Albums. The action surrounding the new releases helps to propel the singer 31-6 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart.

Of the new Beyonce bonus tracks, "7/11" earns the highest debut on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, starting at No. 3 (her second-best entrance ever, trailing only "Drunk in Love," which bowed at No. 2 in January). Shifting 85,000 downloads in its first week, the track shoots straight to No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs, where it's her first No. 1.

The start of "7/11" was also powered by its video, which caught fire with viewers on YouTube following its premiere on Nov. 21. A stark contrast to the slick production of the clips from Beyonce, the irrefutably fun, and seemingly homemade, video for "7/11" has amassed 39 million global views (as of Dec. 4).

Beyonce debuts three other songs on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs from the reissue: new track "Ring Off" enters at No. 31; "Standing on the Sun (Remix)," featuring Mr. Vegas, starts at No. 45; and original album track "Blow" begins at No. 48, aided by a new remix featuring Pharrell Williams.

Meanwhile, "***Flawless" leaps 34-12 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with Digital Gainer honors. Of its 67,000 downloads sold, 91 percent stem from a newly-released remix featuring Nicki Minaj.
