Beyoncé releases statement about signing with Sony/ATV

January 22, 2020

Beyoncé and Sony/ATV Music Publishing have signed a global agreement covering her entire song catalog.

The deal includes hits from Destiny’s Child, through to her collection of solo works written throughout her career.

The agreement with the publishing company reunites the artist with long-term ally Jon Platt, who joined Sony/ATV as Chairman and CEO last year.

“I am excited for what’s to come with my continued partnership with Jon Platt in his new leadership role at Sony/ATV,” said Beyoncé.

“Jon’s the executive who understands the creative mindset and continues to be both an advocate and protector. It has been an honor working with Jon from the start of my career.”

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt, added: “Beyond all of her well-deserved accolades and accomplishments, Beyoncé is simply one of the most driven and impactful talents I know.

“I’ve had the privilege of making incredible music with her throughout her career and she continues to set the bar for creative expression in all forms.

“Beyoncé inspires generations with her songs and I am honored to reunite with her at Sony/ATV.”

Beyoncé Signs With Sony/ATV Music Publishing

January 18, 2020

Beyoncé has signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Variety has learned.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have worked closely for much of their careers with Jon Platt, who took the reins at the Sony Music company as chairman and CEO in 2019.

Platt already brought Rihanna over to his new home last fall, after moving to Sony/ATV from Warner/Chappell earlier in the year.

That the Carters would look to follow Platt at some point was close to a given, considering their mutual words of affection and high praise in the past.

Jay-Z called Platt his “brother” and said he was “the Obama of the music industry” when the publishing exec was the honoree at the annual City of Hope Spirit of Life dinner in October 2018. “This man has worked his way up from a Denver DJ to be the highest-ranking black executive,” he said.

Beyoncé performed at that same event. “I’m so honored to celebrate you tonight,” she said of Platt. “Most people in this industry lead with their ego, but you lead with your heart. You’ve touched so many lives, mine included.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z send Reese Witherspoon a case of champagne

January 11, 2020

Reese Witherspoon can raise a toast this weekend with some high-end bubbly thanks to Beyoncé, Jay-Z and a little bit of courage.

"I just got home from New York and the most beautiful flowers are here and a case of Ace of Spades champagne," Witherspoon shared on her Instagram Stories. A note with the gift read, "More water from Jay & Bey."

It started with an encounter at last Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony when Witherspoon's table ran out of water. She thought it was only natural to ask the "Drunk in Love" couple for a champagne refill — and her bold move paid off.

The couple surprised the actress with a case of Armand de Brignac "Ace of Spades" champagne. Jay-Z has owned the luxury brand since 2014.

"It's 11:30. We're drinking champagne," Witherspoon said as she popped open a gold bottle with her mom, Betty, who asked whether it was too early to drink.

"Who cares? It's from Jay-Z and Beyoncé," the actress responded.

Beyoncé, one of the most celebrated visionaries of our time, has united with adidas, to design a collection that combines fashion and storytelling in an unprecedented way.

"It is a dream come true to re-launch IVY PARK as the sole owner," said Beyoncé. "My team has worked hard with the adidas team in bringing my vision to life for this first collection and I am grateful and proud. From the accessories to the clothes and footwear, I wanted to design and re-imagine pieces that serve as favorite armor for anyone who acknowledges the strength in their individual style and lives freely and boldly."

Featuring the first-ever release of IVY PARK footwear and a powerful array of stylish and functional performance gear that includes gender-neutral apparel and accessories, the launch capsule collection of adidas x IVY PARK celebrates power, freedom and individuality for anyone who has the confidence to take chances and live unapologetically.

Beyonce NOT Performing In Ghana Despite Rumors

December 28, 2019

For fans hopeful for a Beyonce performance this weekend in Ghana, it’s bad news.

Because, it’s official: Queen Bey will not be taking to the stage.

For months, rumors have swirled about the superstar songstress performing during Year of the Return festivities in Accra. Which, for those not in the know, is an initiative to draw Black folk in the Western world and beyond back to the continent in recognition of it being 400 years since the first slave arrived in Virginia.

And the speculation intensified when Bey dropped Afrobeats-inspired project ‘The Gift’ – featuring many artists from the diaspora.

With many of said acts congregating this weekend at the AfroNation festival in Accra, anticipation for Bey reached fever pitch.

However, her longtime publicist has concretely denied any such showing:

Beyoncé hits karaoke bash in LA with mom Tina

December 18, 2019

Beyoncé — along with her mom, Tina Knowles, and guests including Kim Kardashian — attended a karaoke bash thrown by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and her sister Ofira Sandberg at LA hot spot Blind Dragon this week.

“Beyoncé was dancing on a couch while her mom did a rendition of Chaka Khan’s ‘I Feel for You,’ ” said a spy.

We’re told other singers included DJ Cassidy — who took the stage to perform Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” only to be joined by the rapper himself. Tiffany Haddish grabbed the mike to sing “Proud Mary,” and the evening ended with Schwartz and Sandberg belting out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” — which we’re told had Beyoncé and other party guests dancing and singing along.

Beyoncé to release two collections with Adidas

December 11, 2019

Collaboration is a needle-mover, and Adidas is positioned to generate buzz next year with a robust lineup of product with key partners.

Last week at the brand’s New York City showroom and office, Adidas North America president Zion Armstrong provided details to FN about the collections that are in the pipeline for 2020 — which includes its debut work with Beyoncé. (Adidas announced the partnership with Beyoncé and her Ivy Park brand in April.)

“In terms of range, there are two collections. There is Beyoncé and Adidas and then there’s Ivy Park,” Armstrong explained to FN. “And this is not just athleisure product. We have performance product. She is a phenomenal creator athlete and is helping us push the envelope in performance product with materials and fit.”

Beyonce Is Not Doing a Las Vegas Residency

December 9, 2019

Beyonce is not doing a Las Vegas residency, her rep has confirmed to Variety.

It’s “absolutely not true,” the rep stated.

Rumors that Queen Bey would be hitting the strip began circulating Saturday after website LoveBScott posted a story citing “sources” that said she would announce the residency in the first half of 2020. The report said the residency would have made Beyonce the highest-paid entertainer in the city.

The “Lemonade” mastermind has performed in Vegas before, releasing the “I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas” album, which was recorded over a few dates during her “I Am…” world tour, in 2009.

The news had, predictably, gotten Beyonce fans riled up, with some claiming that there was no way the star would agree to a residency rather than releasing a new album and touring in support. Others felt that the mother of three might like the steadiness of a residency as opposed to a world tour.

Beyoncé and Solange Knowles went to counseling as young girls in order to help them deal with the popstar’s rising fame.

The singers’ mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, opened up to Maria Shriver during a Facebook discussion for the former TV reporter’s Architects of Change segment on social media Friday.

Knowles Lawson, 64, revealed her own childhood upbringing — where she felt her mother loved her brother more — affected how she raised her daughters.

“I had days that I devoted to . On Wednesdays, I took off from work and that was Solange’s day. She was a lot younger than Beyoncé and it was tough because was five years older and Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city,” Knowles Lawson said.

Despite dedicating certain days of the week to each daughter, the designer said she took extra steps in ensuring that her children had a close and supportive relationship instead of a competitive one.

“I took them to counseling so that, very early, the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange,” Knowles Lawson explained. “She couldn’t stand her for a minute. You know, they were little, was all in her stuff, trying to hang around her and her friends and Beyoncé was really irritated but it made her more sensitive to who her sister was and what she had to deal with because of her.” Read more...
"I do love butterflies", Grammy award-winning superstar Beyoncé tells me, "but the Papillon was something special". Today her dazzling Papillon will be unveiled as a permanent exhibit at the V&A Museum, donated it as a gift from her private collection, to the William & Judith Bollinger Gallery. The ring’s glittery green mosaic-style wings, created by London jeweller Glenn Spiro using 326 tsavorites, and not surprisingly, 342 brilliant-cut diamonds, "Yes, diamond’s are always a girl’s best friend," says Beyoncé, who spends time looking for distinctive jewels because, "they remind me of a special moment".

"She and Jay-Z buy beautiful things", explains Spiro, "Not just jewellery but also art; they are collectors." The three friends were hanging out together in Los Angeles, in a suite at the Peninsular Hotel, when the subject of the V&A seeking exciting examples of contemporary jewellery cropped up. "She immediately said she’d like to donate the jewel," he says.

When he was originally imagining the design in his West End atelier (once the showroom of couturier Norman Hartnell) he fashioned the stones flat. It wasn’t until he developed a titanium spring, wrapped like a diamond-set antennae over the knuckle, that the butterfly’s wings took flight and were able to flutter in time with Beyoncé’s finger.

"This titanium setting couldn’t have been done until recently and it’s so incredibly delicate," says Richard Edgcumbe, Senior Curator of the V&A Museum, as he turns the butterfly over in his gloved hands. "Of course it's close in spirit to the quivering en tremblant jewels of the 19th-Century which also needed human agency to make the diamonds quiver and come to life. Beyoncé is a role model in so many ways that having her personal jewel will be transforming to the gallery," Edgcumbe adjusts his tie, "to be honest we’re all quite star struck at the thought of it".

Destiny’s Child just had an epic reunion at Coachella last month — but according to Kelly Rowland, that doesn’t mean they’ll be joining Beyoncé and JAY-Z on tour this summer.

After rumors spread that Rowland and Michelle Williams would be joining the superstar couple for their upcoming On The Run II tour, Rowland, 37, tells PEOPLE that they aren’t true. In fact, there hasn’t even been any talk about the possibility.

“This is the first time I heard it — this morning,” Rowland told PEOPLE at Schick’s F.A.B. event in N.Y.C. on Thursday. “I was like, ‘Well, that’s news to me!’ There hasn’t been anything we discussed. She and Jay are getting ready to go on tour — I’m sad because I won’t see those babies.”

But according to the singer, the girl group is just as in sync as they were during their Destiny’s Child days. Rowland adds that while they spent days in rehearsals for their most recent reunion at Coachella, hitting the stage with Beyoncé and Williams by her side felt just like old times.

“It was long days but it was so fun. I think the best part was it felt like we were just on stage yesterday. It didn’t feel like it was years that we haven’t been together, and that’s how natural we are together as friends, as sisters.” Read more...
Beyoncé delivered the performances of a lifetime from Coachella with good reason. She is in great shape, and that all started in the kitchen. She attributes her healthy eating lifestyle of going vegan and wants to share her tips with you. The pop star recently launched a vegan meal-delivery service 22 Days Nutrition which is owned by her and vegan nutritionist Marco Borges.

22 Days of Nutrition uses a matching system to connect users to plant-based meals curated by nutritionists. It allows you to customize your meals based on cooking habits, dietary needs, allergies, household size, and goals. At that point, the meals are personalized for you. The app consists of thousands of recipes ranging from breakfast to dinner and boasts that they are easy and simple to make.

After you’ve chosen what you like, you can either take your grocery list to the store or order in app. The platform has partnered with Instacart and Peapod to allow users to order their groceries online and have them shipped directly to their doorstep.

“We believe that optimum health shouldn’t be something that is reserved for a select few but is a right for all. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best, happiest life,” states the site. Read more...
Beyoncé’s debut at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 14 powered big gains for her music sales and streams in the U.S. in the week ending April 19, according to Nielsen Music.

The diva headlined the second night of the festival, which was streamed live on YouTube. Her well-received performance featured her husband JAY-Z, her sister Solange and a Destiny’s Child reunion alongside group members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams .

Combined, the album and song catalog of both Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child saw an 83 percent increase in sales in the week ending April 19, as the two acts combined sold 8,000 albums (up 102 percent from 4,000 a week earlier) and 37,000 digital tracks (up 79 percent from 21,000).

The biggest-selling album between the two acts was Beyoncé’s 2016 set Lemonade, which re-enters the April 28-dated Top Album Sales chart at No. 24 with 5,000 sold (up 142 percent) -- its best sales frame since the week ending Dec. 28, 2017.

On the Billboard 200 -- which ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption -- Lemonade re-enters at No. 91, while her self-titled 2013 album returns at No. 138 and 2008's I Am… Sasha Fierce jumps back onto the tally at No. 160. Read more...
Following the initial announcement of the Homecoming Scholars Award Program, Beyoncé through her BeyGOOD initiative has partnered with Google to announce more scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. Google.org will match her original $100,000 grant with scholarships to benefit four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) including, Texas Southern University located in Beyoncé's hometown of Houston, Texas, Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, which is her father's alma mater, Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, and Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana.

A total of eight schools will now receive Homecoming Scholars awards for the 2018-2019 academic year, including the previously announced Universities: Xavier University of Louisiana, Wilberforce, Tuskegee, and Bethune-Cookman.

One winner from each school will receive $25K for the 2018-2019 academic year for study in various fields. This is the second year for a scholars program created by Beyoncé.

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.

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.
Not only did Beyoncé's Coachella 2018 performance make history and shake pop culture, it also sold a ton of music. In particular, that snazzy Destiny's Child reunion where Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams harmonized with Bey to sing "Soldier," "Lose My Breath" and "Say My Name," ushered in a major bump in digital sales.

According to Nielsen, after the performance ended, digital song sales for Destiny's Child hits soared some 767% on Sunday, April 15, not even 24 hours after the group collectively wowed the crowd. The trio is marking the 20th anniversary of the chart-topping girl's group, and the sudden uptick in downloads means the ladies have not lost relevancy even though they don't often perform live together. As for Bey, though it's hard to fathom that there are some people out there who don't already own her music, she still managed to sell yet more of it. Digital song sales for Beyoncé's catalog saw a 228% increase compared to a baseline established prior to Coachella.

Beyonce, with 7,000 units sold, overall moved more units because her baseline is larger than that of Destiny's Child, which moved around 1,200 units, according to Nielsen.

Of all that music, the song "Hold Up" was the top-selling track for Beyoncé with a sales spike of 287%.

The singer's most recent album, Lemonade, hit the number 1 spot on the overall worldwide iTunes chart, as well as national charts in Brazil, Denmark and Norway. In the United States, it ascended to the fifth position.
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."
Beyoncé has amped up the visibility of her philanthropic work after her historic Coachella performance. On Monday, the singer revealed that she would be donating $100,000 of scholarship funds to HBCUs. The four schools included Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Bethune-Cookman University and Tuskegee University.

Bey is now using her activewear brand IVY PARK to help to empower young female figure skaters through the organization Figure Skating in Harlem. Through the collaboration, the young girls were gifted with product from the line to help encourage them to continue on in their sport.

FSHarlem was started by Sharon Cohen in 1997 as a means to give girls in the New York City community a space to participate. Figure skating can often times be exclusive to people of a certain class and demographics. Cohen believed that the discipline required to partake in figure skating would help to foster the tools needed to succeed in school and through college.

As a part of the campaign, the FSHarlem girls modeled the Spring line in a short film. Cohen says they were “in shock” when she revealed that they would be working for the pop star. Read more...

Today, Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, announces the four schools to receive the newly established Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Universities, Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman, are all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). HBCUs are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community.

On Saturday, April 14, Beyoncé made history at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival by becoming the first Black woman to headline in the festival's 19-year run.

The jubilant set, housed on a pyramid stage with 150-plus cast members, dutifully in-sync, was the first time the icon returned to her home, the stage, in over one year.

The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride. The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance. It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program. Read more...
