Beyonce Takes Full Control of Ivy Park Clothing Line

November 15, 2018

Beyonce's Parkwood has cut ties with British retail magnate Philip Green, ending a 50/50 partnership that culminated in the launch of her athleisure clothing brand Ivy Park.

Green has recently been accused of sexual harassment, bullying and racial abuse of staff at his companies. He was named in parliament last month as having taken steps to prevent publication of the allegations. The billionaire owns the Arcadia Group, parent of Topshop, which reportedly owned half of Ivy Park.

"After discussions of almost a year, Parkwood has acquired 100 percent of the Ivy Park brand," Ivy Park said in a statement, adding that Topshop stores will fulfill any existing orders for Ivy Park clothing.

The deal was originally reported by the Financial Times. Financial details were not disclosed.

The Topshop-backed line of fashion-forward bodysuits, leggings, crop tops and other sporty gear made its debut in March 2016, "creating a new kind of performance wear: modern essentials for both on and off the field," the company said at the time.

Subsequent marketing campaigns have featured SZA, Black-ish star Yara Shahidi and model Sophie Koella, among others.

'Star Is Born' Producer on Why Beyonce, Clint Eastwood Remake Never Happened

November 11, 2018

With the success of Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star is Born, it’s hard to imagine any other actors portraying the roles of Jack and Ally other than Cooper and Lady Gaga. But at one point in time, Beyonce and Clint Eastwood were the stars of the show.

“There was a moment where that was the best version of the movie and then all of a sudden, Beyonce got pregnant. Do we wait?” Bill Gerber, the film’s producer told The Hollywood Reporter. “She was amazing about all this stuff. She always understood if we were going to take a different direction. And then Clint went off and did another movie.”

Speaking on the first meeting of Beyonce and Eastwood, Gerber explained, “I’m sitting there thinking, ‘I think I’m watching something historic about to happen,’ and then it didn’t. It’s just the movie business.”

Roseivyou Instagram account isn’t secretly for Beyoncé

October 24, 2018

Earlier this week, the mysterious Roseivyou Instagram account popped up leaving many to speculate it was a major hint that a new Beyoncé is on the way; a few guesses being a Netflix special and even a joint album with Kelly Rowland.

With the Queen's love of hints (like 2015 Instagram posts with lemons during a time she would likely have been working on 2016's Lemonade), it made sense to many that something was going on, coupled with a video Kelly Rowland posted of herself singing along to an unreleased track with the lyrics "Rose petals at my feet," and rose emojis in the video's caption just a week before the account showed up. A source close to Beyoncé tells The FADER, however, that this account has nothing to do with the singer.

Fans have been deconstructing the page and its posts in the last few days, figuring out that the vocals in the snippet are actually from Beyonce's "Grown Woman", despite the account amassing over 23k followers in just a few days.

I guess we can all unfollow now.

On the Run II Tour Finishes with More Than $250 Million

October 24, 2018

They say it’s a marathon, not a sprint. But for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, it was both. Their sprawling On the Run II Tour finished with $253.5 million in the bank, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

The trek wrapped Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, the last of the 48 stadium dates they played, after beginning June 6 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. From there, the dynamic duo played 18 shows throughout Europe, peaking at London Stadium’s two-night engagement with $11 million grossed and more than 125,000 tickets sold. After a few final shows in France, including their debut performance of “APESHIT” in Paris, they crossed the pond for 30 North American shows, with doubles in Landover, Md.; East Rutherford, N.J.; Chicago; Atlanta; Houston; and Pasadena, Calif. The biggest earner of the tour was the Aug. 25-26 engagement at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, grossing $14.1 million.

On the Run II is the sequel to 2014’s On the Run Tour, a massive success in its own right. Billboard named it the Top R&B/Hip-Hop tour of the year, coming in at No. 8 on 2014's overall Top Tours list, with three appearances on the year-end Top Boxscores ranking. The original trek grossed $109.6 million from 980,000 tickets sold.

But despite the high bar set four years ago, On the Run II expanded The Carters’ worldwide reach. The $253.5 million haul of this year’s run represents a 132 percent increase over the original’s gross. While one might worry that expanding from 21 sold-out stadium dates to 48 would be spreading oneself thin, Beyoncé and JAY-Z were still able to increase their average per-show gross, maintaining a pace of $5.28 million each night.

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.

Billy Eichner might want to start practicing his scales because the Billy on the Street star just revealed he's going to sing with Beyoncé in the 2019 remake of The Lion King.

E! News' Jason Kennedy caught up with Eichner at the 2017 American Music Awards and asked him about being cast in the live-action film.

"I was freaking out," Eichner told the E! News host. "I mean, the cast is amazing. Me and Seth Rogen are Timon and Pumbaa, so we do ‘Hakuna Matata' and then we also sing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight' with Simba and Nala, who are going to be voiced by Donald Glover and someone who is named Beyoncé."

Even though the comedian and the Lemonade singer will both be featured in the Elton John hit, Eichner wondered if he'll even get to meet the Grammy-winning artist in-person.

"Why would she want to be in the studio with me?" he said.

In addition to Eichner, Beyoncé, Rogen and Glover, the live-action remake will feature James Earl Jones as Mufasa, John Oliver as Zazu and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari. The film will be directed by Jon Favreau, who also worked on the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book.
The nominees for the 49th NAACP Image Awards were announced today and Beyonce is up for one award:

Outstanding Female Artist
Andra Day – “Stand Up For Something” (Warner Bros. Records)
Beyoncé – “Die With You” (Columbia Records/Parkwood Entertainment)
Ledisi – “Let Love Rule” (Verve Label Group)
Mary J. Blige – “Strength of a Woman” (Capitol Records)
SZA – “Ctrl” (RCA Records/Top Dawg Entertainment)

Winners will be announced during the two-hour star-studded event hosted by Anthony Anderson, which will be broadcast LIVE on TV One on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 9pm/8c.
Shortly after Adele took home the Grammy award for Album of the Year in February, she broke it in half--with the intention of physically sharing it with Beyoncé, the internet concluded—in recognition of the latter's Lemonade. But Queen Bey won an even more valuable distinction outright: she's this year's highest-paid woman in music, pulling in a whopping $105 million pretax.

Lemonade was a hit with both critics and fans, giving Beyoncé her sixth solo No. 1. The ensuing Formation World Tour, much of it falling into our list's scoring period, grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. Then she took time off as she and husband Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir this summer. Adele finished second, earning $69 million, boosted by seven-figure nightly grosses on her first proper tour since 2011.

In order to form our list, we looked at pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017, and did not take out fees charged by agents, managers and lawyers. We gathered data from Nielsen SoundScan, Pollstar, the RIAA and interviews with industry insiders. The two mononymous stars both earned tens of millions more than the rest of the pack, but there are plenty of notable names further down the list.
The 45th annual American Music Awards were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 19. Beyonce won in the only category that she was nominated in this year, Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B. Congrats!

Camila Cabello has fought off challenges from Rita Ora and Eminem to score a third week atop the Official UK Singles Chart with Havana.

Thanks to a new remix featuring Daddy Yankee, and the original Young Thug version still proving popular, Havana finishes 8,000 ahead of nearest competitor Rita Ora. Rising to Number 2, Anywhere is Rita’s third Top 10 single this year and her highest chart placing since I Will Never Let You Down topped the Official Singles Chart in May 2014.

Highest new entry this week comes from Eminem and Beyoncé at Number 7. Walk On Water becomes Eminem’s 28th UK Top 10, and Beyonce’s 19th as a credited performer.
Just two days ago, (Nov. 8) Eminem sent the internet into a frenzy with a speculative social media post on a "Revival" prescription note that read “Walk on Water. Take as needed.” Prescription note-styled advertisements have popped up across the United States over the past few weeks without much clarification from Em’s team.

Friday, (Nov. 10) Slim Shady posted a hoax infomercial directed at sufferers of AR claiming they will be able to “Walk On Water with Revival." Marshall Mathers returns with a Beyonce feature for his first single that will be appearing on the "Lose Yourself' artist's forthcoming project.

Listen to “Walk on Water” below and read the lyrics under the cut!

Beyoncé is auctioning the massive black hat she wore during her Formation World Tour behind Lemonade. The winner of the auction will receive the iconic, 10x8 inch felt hat signed by Beyoncé as well as a photograph of her wearing it. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the the Lung Transplant Project. Find more information on it and place your bids here.

Beyoncé — as close as any modern artist to royalty status in American pop music — will play the queen to be of the Pride Lands in Disney’s coming live-action remake of “The Lion King.”

The studio confirmed Tuesday that she will voice the role of Nala, opposite Donald Glover’s Simba, in the classic coming-of-age tale set among the animal kingdom of the African savanna.

The star-studded cast will also include James Earl Jones — reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 animated version — Chiwetel Ejiofor in the part of Scar, and a new spin on a vintage odd couple: Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa.

The new “King” will make a play for a box office coronation in July 2019. It will join a string of live-action adaptations (with a healthy dose of state-of-the-art visual effects) that have been reliable hits for Disney in recent years, following “Beauty and the Beast” this year, “The Jungle Book” in 2016 and “Cinderella” in 2015. Jon Favreau, who helmed the recent “Jungle Book,” will direct. Read more...
The road to Cardi B's debut album has been smeared with setbacks, as well as huge feats for the rising star, and she might have another accomplishment to add to her already growing resume: a Beyonce feature. According to a snapshot of Michael Ashby's -- Cardi's engineer -- Instagram story, the two artists may have a collaboration in the works.

Ashby, the engineer behind Cardi's hit "Bodak Yellow," shared a photo of a mix titled "Cardi B & Beyonce" and wrote 'Wow this feature is big" over the image. Ashby didn't reveal whether the track is a loosie, or might possibly land on the Bronx rapper's forthcoming album.

Cardi and Beyonce previously met at Made in America festival earlier in September. After meeting Beyonce, Cardi said that she was surprised the "Formation" singer liked her music, and was speechless when they officially met. Miss Tina Lawson, Beyonce's mother, also greeted Cardi backstage at the festival. Billboard reached out to Atlantic Records and Beyonce's reps for comment.

Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All),” featuring Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin, tops Billboard & Clio’s Top TV Commercials chart, powered by Shazam, for September, thanks to the song’s appearance in Chanel’s “Film” ad.

Using tagging data from Shazam, as well as sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music, Billboard partners with Clio Music each month to present a chart ranking the top songs in commercials. Rankings exclude any song that has recently charted within the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 or top 10 on a genre chart.

“Runnin’,” which debuted and peaked at No. 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 2015, leads all songs with 70,000 Shazam tags, 6,000 downloads sold and 2 million U.S. streams during the month of September, according to Nielsen Music.

The song is the first No. 1 on the chart for Naughty Boy, Beyonce, and Arrow Benjamin. Beyonce’s previous peak on the chart was at No. 2 on the April 2017-dated list, with “Freedom,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, which appeared in Apple Watch’s “Live Bright” commercial. Read more...

Prince may have been known for his brilliance in more ways than one, but Beyoncé is highlighting a lesser-known talent of the late legendary artist -- his comedic timing.

The Lemonade singer penned the foreword of Prince: A Private View -- a photo retrospective of the pop icon's life, featuring the photography of Afshin Shahidi (father of Black-ish star Yara Shahidi) -- on shelves Oct. 24. In one excerpt, Queen Bey admits she almost lost it while performing with the "Purple Rain" rocker at the 2004 GRAMMYs, because of how he ended the performance.

“Prince’s timing was genius and his sense of humor, spontaneous and unexpected," Beyonce, 34, writes. "At the end of 'Purple Rain'/'Let’s Go Crazy'/'Crazy in Love' medley, I had no idea he would say what he did. We did talk about making a face but when he blurted out 'Don’t hate us ‘cause we fab,' it took everything I had to keep my composure."

Remembering the performance, we can see why it'd be hard not to!

Backing up, Beyoncé begins the excerpt by telling the story of how the two prepared for their spectacular GRAMMYs appearance. Read more...
Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a third week, marking a new longevity record for a hit by an unaccompanied female rapper. Plus, J Balvin and Willy William's "Mi Gente" blasts from No. 21 to No. 3, sparked by its newly added featured artist, Beyonce; Imagine Dragons' "Thunder" rumbles 17-7; and Demi Lovato hits a new best career rank, as "Sorry Not Sorry" rises 10-8 on the latest chart (dated Oct. 21).

As we do every Monday, let's run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 10).

"Mi Gente" surges from No. 21 to No. 3 on the Hot 100 (after previously reaching No. 19), after the first full week of tracking for its new remix featuring Beyonce, scoring the chart's greatest gains in sales and streaming. It rockets 34-1 on Digital Song Sales (79,000 sold, up 436 percent, with 87 percent of its sales from its new remix) and 14-5 on Streaming Songs (28.7 million, up 50 percent), while also climbing 32-29 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 18 percent).

J Balvin and William each earn their first Hot 100 top 10, while Beyonce banks her 17th (as a soloist, to go along with 10 as a member of Destiny's Child). She had last reached the region with Lemonade track "Formation," which spent a week at No. 10 (upon its debut) in May 2016. She notches her highest rank since "Drunk in Love," featuring JAY-Z, peaked at No. 2 on Feb. 15, 2014. Read more...
On Thursday evening, Beyonce shared a 20 second video on Instagram announcing she had joined a remix of J Balvin and Willy William's hit "Mi Gente" and would donate all her proceeds to disaster relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other recently affected Caribbean islands.

Following in the footsteps of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's record-breaking success with the Justin Bieber-featuring "Despacito" remix, Beyonce's good news with a good cause marked a big moment for Latin music in the mainstream. With Queen Bey singing in both Spanish and English on the track, it and its star-studded music video racked up millions of streams in its first 24 hours, topping iTunes' sales charts in 30 countries and YouTube's trend ranking, and looks prime to hit the Hot 100 top 10.

Here's how the collaboration came to be:

A remake of an original song by French DJ Willy Williams, "Mi Gente" had the makings of a global hit when it was first released in April and immediately sparked talk of a general market remix. "But we wanted it to live for a while and get as big as it could on a global scale in Spanish," says Rebeca Leon, who co-manages Balvin with Balvin's label, Universal Music Latin Entertainment (UMLE).

The "lofty goal," says UMLE president Victor Gonzalez, "was to make it No. 1 on Spotify at a global level." Read more...
