Beyonce And Kelly Rowland Joint Album Rumored To Be On The Way

October 16, 2018

Hive, alert! It looks like there very well may be another joint album with Beyoncé attached on the way…but this time, it’s not with her husband. It looks like Bey’s partner in crime will be none other than her sister in Destiny, Kelly Rowland. At least, that’s what we have in the way of fan speculation at the moment…

Sharp-eyed IG users noticed an ominous, yet unexplained countdown appear on the official “Everything is Love” album page, followed by an also unexplained rose, before finally dropping a snippet that has what sounds like a couple of very familiar voices harmonizing while a rose blooms.

With the name “Rose IV You” attached and the only accounts following being Tidal, Kelly’s, and Beyoncé’s…it sounds very much like this may be a new project from the two OG Destiny’s Children.

Beychella sweatshirt to be auctioned off at Ebay Celebrity Stylist Sale

September 27, 2018

“There’s something about winning an Ebay auction that’s just so exciting,” says stylist Mariel Haenn, one half of the power duo, known as Rob and Mariel, that’s responsible for J.Lo’s glamorous, high-wattage looks. “Agreed,” says her business partner Rob Zangardi. “That cha-ching notification always gives me a thrill.” Even more so, perhaps, if you have just won the yellow Michael Costello jumpsuit worn by Lopez at the 2015 AMAs, or a pair of Justin Bieber’s quilted leather Balmain skate shoes, or one of Kendall Jenner’s Adidas sweatsuits from her collaboration with Daniëlle Cathari, which are just some of the items that eBay will auction on the site’s first-ever Fall Stylist Sale running from September 25th though October 2nd.

The sale, which is part of the Ebay For Charity initiative, involves a team of top-tier celebrity stylists including Marni Senofonte (whose has dressed Lauryn Hill, Beyoncé, and Kendall Jenner); Karla Welch (best known perhaps for her teen-idol clients Justin Bieber and Lorde); Ilaria Urbinati (who outfits leading men like Donald Glover, Rami Malek, and Armie Hammer and the aforementioned Rob and Mariel to curate pieces from their archives for an auction to benefit the cause of their choice. The result is a collection over 50 pieces ranging from jewelry, bags, and shoes to sold-out collectibles and one-of-a-kind custom pieces by designers including Gucci, Valentino, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, and Balmain, many of which have walked the red carpet. Prices will start at 99 cents, and the lots will be featured on each of the stylists’ Instagram stories beginning today , allowing shoppers to swipe up and place bids on eBay.

Here, a first look at some of the most covetable pieces that will go under the hammer.

Beyoncé Set to Perform at City of Hope Gala

September 17, 2018

It was announced today that global icon Beyoncé will perform at the City of Hope gala on October 11 in Los Angeles. This will mark her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer, with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour started in Cardiff, UK in June and is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.

City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, is honoring Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, with its prestigious Spirit of Life® award. Platt has worked with Beyoncé since 2005.

Inspired by the guiding humanitarian principles of City of Hope and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the charity’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group in 1973. In its 45-year history, the group has raised more than $118 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures in the music and entertainment industry.

The evening’s host will be producer/entertainer Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, multi-Grammy winner/entrepreneur, will present the award to Platt.

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”

Beyoncé And JAY-Z Announce A New Scholarship Program

August 26, 2018

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter announce a new scholarship program that will award one exceptional senior high school student, with financial needs, 100K to put toward their enrollment in a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019. The award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout the duration of the student's enrollment.

This back to school season, students in OTRll Tour markets, who are preparing for college, will be chosen by Boys and Girls Club of America. Qualified students must demonstrate academic excellence and show financial needs that would make it hard for them to enter a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019.

The markets will include Atlanta, where the OTRll Tour plays at Mercedes Benz Stadium Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle.

The Carters have had a long history of helping students with The Shawn Carter Foundation spearheading college tours to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and providing scholarships to college bound students nationwide

Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, created the Formation Scholars Award, a merit program, in 2017 to help female students start or further their college education, and this year announced the Homecoming Scholars Award, a second merit program, opened to qualified students, regardless of gender, to enter or continue their studies at one of eight HBCUs.

OTR II show descends into chaos as dancers tackle stage invader

August 26, 2018

A Beyonce and Jay-Z concert ended in chaos on Saturday night after a stage invader managed to make to get within feet of the super stars as they walked off stage.

Video of the performance in Atlanta showed the invader casually make his way on to the stage from the audience, before rushing after the power couple; when the dancers realised what happened they rushed to the back of the stage moments to stop his tracks, before security guards also rushed the stage.

Many of the session musicians also on stage seem unaware of what is taking place below them, as they continue to perform.

In videos, shared by concertgoers at the venue, it appears that the invader is held down by security guards, however fans took to Twitter to ask where security was in the first place.

Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure confirmed via Instagram that the pair are fine.

‘Beyonce and JAY-Z on stage tonight in Atlanta. Thank you to all the fans for your concern,’ she wrote on Instagram, ‘they are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.’

Beyoncé & JAY-Z's On the Run II Tour Surpasses $150 Million Earned

August 25, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s On the Run II Tour tops the Hot Tours list dated Aug. 25, thanks to the latest batch of earnings reported to Billboard Boxscore for the couple's successful trek. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses.

With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

With another month and a half of dates still ahead for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, their tour is trending toward the $250 million mark. As implied by the tour’s name, it is the sequel to their original 2014 On the Run stint. The 2018 installment has already blown past its predecessor, which brought in $109.6 million.

The couple’s massive summer tour caps off a particularly fertile few years of their storied careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. Combined, these two efforts yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units according to Nielsen Music. Together, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, billed to The Carters. The joint album, released in the middle of their European leg, topped five Billboard charts dated June 30, 2018, including Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, and Digital Albums.

Minnesota Governor Announces Statewide 'Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day'

August 15, 2018

Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton declared August 8th as a statewide “Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day” in anticipation of the megastar couple’s concert in Minneapolis. “Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken home numerous awards from platforms such as the Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and NAACP Image Awards, among others and have sold millions of records worldwide,” Dayton wrote in an official proclamation.

“Through their lives and music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have inspired Minnesotans, and music fans around the world,” he continued.

The proclamation was signed shortly before the couple gave a joint concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Dayton’s announcement comes over two years after he declared May 23rd as statewide ‘Beyoncé Day’ before the 36-year-old singer gave a concert in Minneapolis in 2016. Neither one of the pair were born or raised in Minnesota, with Beyoncé from Texas while Jay-Z is from New York.

'Course sometimes s--t goes down when there's a billion dollars in the elevator! When Beyonce hit the red carpet at the 2015 Met Gala hours after most of the other stars posed for the cameras, she flawlessly worked her racy Givenchy gown and her high ponytail.

But what most don't know is that the "Flawless" singer's effortless look was finalized in the elevator. No, not that elevator, but in the elevator of her apartment building on the way to the swanky event's carpet.

Beyonce's longtime hairstylist Neal Farinah (of the Neal Farinah Salon in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood on Fulton Street) was on hand for the quick fix, and exclusively told Us Weekly’s Gwen Flamberg about the last-minute switch up.

"For the Met Ball we did that high ponytail but that wasn't supposed to be the style," Farinah revealed. "We did that in the elevator as she was on the way out."

Originally Bey's long locks were entirely wrapped up in "an asian-inspired chignon," but Farinah said the Grammy winner felt the look might be too "costumey," and made a spur-of-the-moment decision.

"Then we were in the elevator on the way down, and she looks at me and says 'Neal, I want to change my hair, will you change my hair?' And I said, 'Honey, there could be cameras in the elevator,'" Farinah quipped, referencing last year's infamous "Elevatorgate" in which her sister Solange Knowles got into a physical altercation with her husband Jay Z. "She says, 'You have 5 minutes.' And I said, 'Girl, what do you want me to do with the hair?' And she wanted a high ponytail. With Beyonce, she looks at herself and she says, 'This isn't right, let's change it.'" Read more...
Yellow Kite published The 22-Day Revolution, a book about the benefits of a plant-based diet, with a foreword written by Beyoncé.

Founded on the principle that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, The 22-Day Revolution by exercise physiologist and nutrition expert Marco Borges is a “practical guide for anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle, to lose weight, or to reverse serious health concerns”.

It contains advice, recipes and tools, including a detailed 22-day meal plan, for switching to a plant-based lifestyle.

Beyonce took to Facebook to celebrate the release of the book:

"Very proud to be on this journey with Marco! Congratulations on the release of your book, 'The 22 Day Revolution'."

Rumor has it, Jay Z and Beyoncé's reported joint album will drop “exclusively” on TIDAL. DJ Skee revealed the latest scoop on the project during a segment on today's Skee TV. The Cali radio personality said that he has heard from sources that the album is "nearing completion."

Though the power couple have yet to confirm that they are actually recording the collaboration, this is the second update Skee has given on the album since last September. Producer Detail (who's responsible for Bey’s smash, “Drunk In Love”) told Billboard in February, that the new album could be out this year. "In my imaginary mind, I'll work to say it's true," he said.

If the rumors are correct TIDAL could potentially see a boost from Hov and Bey, as the company tries to make a name for itself in the digital streaming space.

Drake and Beyoncé have recorded a new collaboration for Drake’s upcoming album Views From the 6.

Writer Ernest Baker followed the Canadian rapper around in the week leading up to his Coachella performance and wrote about his experiences for Four Pins. Among the interesting tidbits in the article is that Drake has two songs finished that he likes for his new album. One is a song that he “expects to inspire a paradigm shift.” The other is a collaboration with Beyoncé.

The two previously collaborated on “Mine” for Beyoncé’s surprise album, and Queen Bey inspired Drake’s 2013 tribute “Girls Love Beyoncé.”

Baker compares Views From the 6 to what Kanye West did with 808s & Heartbreak. “It appears that Drake is ready to deviate from his winning formula and get a little weird,” he writes, adding, “His days of releasing lay-up bangers that everyone loves right away are over. For now, at least.”
The 2015 Billboard Music Award nominees were announced on April 7 and Beyonce is up for two awards!

Michelle Williams ft. Beyonce & Kelly Rowland! "Say Yes" #StellarAwards

Posted by Josh Hurt on Saturday, March 28, 2015

After the show, Beyonce was spotted with Jay-Z and Blue.

His heels top every woman’s lust-list, and his sneakers have become a must-have staple amongst every self-respecting hip hop artist. Giuseppe Zanotti, the San Mauro Pascoli-born Italian creative, whose sexy heels and gold plated sneaks, find their way to the red carpet, just as easily as they find their way to the street. I meet with Zanotti in the men’s section of his designer shoe universe: the Zanotti showroom in Milan, located on the Italian fashion capital’s premier high-end shopping street Via Monte Napoleone.

The designer reveals that Beyoncé has her first shoe in collaboration with Zanotti coming out, scheduled for release within one or two weeks. “I’m doing a shoe with Beyoncé right now,” Giuseppe tells me while showing me an image of a sketch, from his phone. I’m not able to see what the final product will turn out like exactly, but going by the sketch, Beyoncé has a thing for ultra thick platform stilettos. “Beyoncé has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants. The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She’s incredibly talented and she’s an amazing dancer – she’s complete. Few are like Beyoncé,” the designer says about the multiple Grammy award-winning artist he has known ever since her Destiny’s Child days. “I’m working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now. And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like. It will be one shoe only,” Zanotti concludes with regards to the shoe that will certainly get the BeyHive craving.
Beyonce once recorded a Fela album, according to hitmaker, The-Dream.

According to a recent admission by hit-maker and Grammy-winning artist The-Dream, the global megastar had previously played around with a sound modeled after Fela, the musical based on music and lyrics by the late Nigerian singer Fela Kuti.

Sharing the news while submitting some history on his various production and writing work for the acclaimed lyrics site Genius.com, The-Dream revealed that before her ‘4’ album was completed they recorded a whole body of work with a Fela sound.

“We did a whole Fela album that didn’t go up. It was right before we did 4,” said Dream. “We did a whole different sounding thing, about twenty songs. She said she wanted to do something that sounds like Fela. That’s why there’s so much of that sound in the ‘End of Time.’ There’s always multiple albums being made. Most of the time we’re just being creative, period. We’re talking about B, somebody who sings all day long and somebody who writes all day long. There’s probably a hundred records just sitting around.”
Cara Delevingne announced last year that she was shifting her focus from modeling to acting, but maybe it's her burgeoning music career that she really needs to make the time for. Delevingne and Beyoncé each posted separate Instagram posts of the same sound board last night, hinting that the two are working on music together.

This is the model/actress' latest venture into the music industry. She recently co-starred in A$AP Ferg's music video for "Dope Walk" and sang in a film for Chanel alongside Pharrell. Queen Bey's only rumored project is a joint album with husband Jay Z, which looks like it might also include a feature from Delevingne.

Beyoncé has hooked up with models before on her video for "Yoncé," which features Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman, and Joan Smalls.

Although it's possible that these two aren't in the studio and these two posts are merely a huge coincidence, that seems pretty unlikely and we couldn't be more excited. Read more...

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...


During a very gloomy Grammy Awards, the Internet perked up when Kanye West appeared to pull a Kanye West and stormed the stage in protest of Beyoncé not winning one of the biggest prizes of the night — album of the year — which went to Beck for “Morning Phase.”

However, Kanye grinned, his wife Kim Kardashian grinned; even Jay Z and Beyoncé looked mildly horrified but eventually started laughing. It was all a big joke, right?

Uh, maybe not. A few minutes after the ceremony ended, Kanye stopped by E!’s Grammy after-show with Kim and shared his true feelings about Beck’s win over Queen Bey. The gist: He was not pleased. Read more...
In the midst of course request and planning schedules for the upcoming semester, student buzz has risen about a new class with an unexpected focus: Beyonce.

Professor Petra Rivera-Rideau, who has worked in the Africana Studies department at Tech for three years, will be offering “Theorizing Beyonce” for the first time in spring 2015.

“My idea came from two places,” said Rivera-Rideau, who also teaches introduction and graduate-level Africana courses. “First, there are some Beyonce courses at other universities. There are other universities and courses that use one particular person as a focal point, like Duke has a class on Michael Jackson and Georgetown has one on Jay Z. I was always interested in teaching a course like that.”

In addition to being influenced by other academics, Professor Rivera-Rideau also gained inspiration from her students.

“In my intro course, one of the assignments students have to do is write a paper where they look at some sort of representation of race in popular culture,” Rivera-Rideau said. “I often have students pick Beyonce and I realized a lot of my students were using Beyonce’s work to think about the issues and theories we were dealing with.”

“Theorizing Beyonce,” technically listed as AFST 4354: Issues in Africana Studies, will center around the famous singer in an effort to discuss greater race and gender issues. Read more...
You're not alone if you can't wait to watch Beyoncé take the stage at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday.

Following the exciting announcement earlier this week, we've been dying for any details on the 33-year-old singer's upcoming performance—and wondering how in the heck she's going to top last year's Grammy opener when she kicked off the show with husband Jay Z with a super-sexy rendition of her hit "Drunk In Love" (not to mention her jaw-dropping performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards).

So, of course, when we caught up with President/CEO of The Recording Academy Neil Portnow at the Billboard Power 100 Celebration in Beverly, Hills last night, we had to get him to spill the beans on all things Queen Bey.

"Well this will be so dramatically different than anything you've seen her do in a long time," Portnow teased of the "Flawless" beauty's forthcoming performance. "It's really going to be a spectacular moment for us and for her for sure."

Beyoncé, who's tied for the top of the pack with six nominations (including Album of the Year and Best Music Film), is expected to sing "Take My Hand Precious Lord" before segueing into John Legend and Common's Oscar-nominated song "Glory" with the musical duo.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards air this Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.
