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.

"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."

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.

(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.

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, who voices the character Nala in Disney’s new The Lion King film, sees her King-inspired album The Lion King: The Gift debut at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 chart with 54,000 equivalent album units earned (with 11,000 of that sum in album sales). The album was released on July 19 via Parkwood/Columbia Records. The set, which is billed to Beyoncé & Various Artists, boasts Queen Bey performing on 10 of the album’s 14 songs. Those songs include “Spirit,” which is also heard in the film and included on its Walt Disney Records soundtrack, which zooms 31-13 on the Billboard 200.

Beyoncé executive produced and curated The Lion King: The Gift, and also is a producer on each of the set’s tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift marks Beyoncé’s ninth top 10 effort on the Billboard 200 as a soloist, and second new top 10 of 2019, following Homecoming: The Live Album (a debut at No. 4, May 4). Notably, Beyoncé is just the second act of 2019, and first woman, to achieve two new top 10s this year. She follows Future, who notched two new top 10s with Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD (No. 1 on Feb. 2) and Save Me (No. 5 on June 22). (Beyoncé has actually seen three of her albums visit the top 10 in 2019 — the only act to achieve that feat this year. In addition to The Lion King: The Gift and Homecoming, her 2016 No. 1 Lemonade returned to the top 10 on the May 4-dated chart.)
Last year Beyoncé revealed the secret to her recovery and process in returning to the stage for her epic Homecoming performance. Thanks to her dedication, trainer, Marco Borges, and his 22 Days Nutrition program, Beyoncé adopted a healthier lifestyle that she now encourages everyone to try.

22 Days Nutrition is based on the principle of creating healthier habits by moving towards a plant-based lifestyle. They offer a customizable meal planner that makes healthy eating easy, as well as a line of USDA Organic, Non-GMO, plant-based (vegan), delicious products.

To meet her goals, Beyoncé stuck to the program and the results were documented. Watch her 22 Days journey to Coachella below.

Ali Baruck revealed on Instagram that she documented the recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift":

"The Lion King: The Gift. What an incredible project to be a part of. I had listened to Afrobeat before, but never experienced it on this level. Over the past few months, some of Africans finest talents flew from Nigeria, London, Ghana, South Africa and Cameroon to the LA studio to create beats, lyrics, chants, records...magic. The rooms beamed with creativity and a deep love for music and African culture. We were there til the early hours of the morning every night. Everyone shared their talents, culture, love for their homeland, we ordered authentic Nigerian food for dinner. The studio became a little family. It was all love ❤️ Meeting these artists was so amazing and seeing their process of making music was an unforgettable experience. All of these records are truly authentic to Africa, which was the first and most important thing the incredible A&R team stressed to everyone involved. It truly is a love letter to Africa ❤️🌍 I had the opportunity to document it 🎥

If you haven’t already, give The Lion King: The Gift a listen ✨a lot of hard work went into making it. Big congrats to everyone involved.
#thelionkingthegift #africa #love #beyonce #parkwood"
Simba and Mufasa reigned supreme this weekend as Disney’s “The Lion King” dominated box office charts. Director Jon Favreau’s remake of the animated classic collected a massive $185 million from 4,756 North American theaters during its first three days of release.

In yet another win for Disney, the movie landed the best domestic launch for a PG film and set a new record for the month of July. That figure also represents the second-best domestic debut of the year behind Disney and Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million). After this weekend, the Buena Vista company now holds five of the top six biggest movies of 2018 so far.

Overseas, “The Lion King” felt the love with $269 million for a global start of $433 million. The film launched in China last weekend and has since earned $98 million, boosting the worldwide haul to $531 million.

Audiences also shelled out to see the hyper-realistic movie in the best quality possible. Imax theaters accounted for $25 million of tickets sold, while 36% of global ticket sales came from 3D screens.
It’s here! Beyoncé’s companion soundtrack to the new live-action Lion King has finally dropped. The soundtrack weaves the voices of Mufasa et al. in with the melodies and polyrhythms of Africa. An extended mix of “MOOD 4 EVA” by Bey, Jay-Z, and Childish Gambino is available exclusively through Tidal. The rest of the album is streaming everywhere. Listen below!

Walt Disney announced on Tuesday (July 9) that Beyonce will be curating and producing a new album, The Lion King: The Gift. The album and the film's soundtrack will also include new Bey song called “Spirit.”

The album will feature a number of global recording artists and "steeped in the sounds of Africa," according to the announcement on Instagram.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said of the record in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

The Lion King: The Gift is out July 19, along with the live-action film, which features Bey as Nala.
Disney’s The Lion King—starring Beyoncé as Nala and Donald Glover as Simba—is in theaters on July 19. Today, the film’s soundtrack was announced. It’s out digitally on July 11 and physically July 19 (via Walt Disney Records). Pre-order now!

In addition, there is a brand new Elton John track called “Never Too Late.” John co-wrote the track with Tim Rice; it’s produced by Greg Kurstin. Check out the tracklist, which includes a conspicuous TBA for Track 14, below. Read more...
With tickets now officially on sale for The Lion King here at Fandango, we spoke exclusively with director Jon Favreau, who has followed up his work helming the 2016 live-action redo of The Jungle Book with another groundbreaking effort here. He tells us how the highly anticipated new version is different while still honoring both the original movie and the iconic stage adaptation, the challenges of accomplishing such changes, and how the casting bridges the various versions and generations. And yes, he lost his mind over learning Beyoncé would be involved.

Fandango: Beyoncé is obviously a big deal for this movie.

Jon Favreau: Yes.

Fandango: I read that you wanted her involved so bad you were willing to work around her schedule. Did you have to coordinate much in that regard?

Jon Favreau: Sure, she's very busy. She's doing a lot. She was directing Homecoming, making Lemonade, her family got larger while we were working together. And between touring and albums, she really has a prolific career in many areas. She's an artist and a singer and a performer and very involved. She has a lot of things going on. But she's incredibly engaged and committed, and so what was wonderful was that when we did get together to work, she was exceptional, as you can imagine in her performance, but also really gives everything a lot of thought. She's very hard-working and puts a lot of thought into things, and would often be so extremely well-prepared that she was clearly working on a lot on this even when we weren't together. Read more...

Netflix’s critically-acclaimed concert special Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé reached 1.1 million U.S. viewers on its April 17 premiere date, according to data newly provided by Nielsen via its SVOD Content Ratings system.

Introduced in October 2017, SVOD Content Ratings measures the viewership of subscription video on demand (SVOD) services via audio recognition software installed in 44,000 U.S. homes that contain Nielsen's TV set meters. While the highly-secretive Netflix has stated in the past that Nielsen's ratings are “not even close” to being accurate, it is the most reliable measure yet of SVOD viewership data.

According to the numbers compiled by Nielsen, the audience for Homecoming was 63% African American on the day of its premiere and 55% over its first seven days, more than any other Netflix original film or series analyzed to date (the closest was Bird Box with 24%). Hispanics, meanwhile, made up 15% of viewers, while Asians comprised 5%. Read more...
