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.

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.

Beyonce's Director, Choreographers & More Talk 'Single Ladies'

July 29, 2018

This week, Billboard is celebrating the music video with a week's worth of content that looks at the past, present and future of the video, at a time when it seems to be as relevant as ever. Here, we flashback ten years for an extended look at how arguably the most legendary video from the 21st century's greatest music video star came together, and why its legacy endures a decade later.

On the St. Louis stop of the 2016 Formation World Tour, Beyoncé and her dancers -- including her dance captain, Ashley Everett -- were just about to wave their hands through the final bars of “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” when the pop star paused. The buoyant bass continued to blast as she vamped, coyly pacing the stage before she turned on her heel and signaled for a gentleman in a white jacket to join her. John Silver, Everett’s boyfriend, trotted into the spotlight and took the floor, where he presented his dumbstruck love with an engagement ring -- one that got an all-too-appropriate cameo during a sequence as familiar to the crowd as the “Single Ladies” chorus itself. If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it: he did, so he did, and Everett flicked her wrist and flashed her newly-minted diamond in the routine she helped create.

That such a life-changing moment went down in the middle of a “Single Ladies” performance is perfect, as the song has proven to be a monumentally transformative force in the lives of Beyoncé and those of her closest collaborators. Everett was at Beyoncé’s side when she filmed the music video for “Single Ladies” and in the three months leading up to the shoot, when they and choreographers Frank Gatson Jr. and JaQuel Knight worked tirelessly to hone every kick, waist-wind, and lift that would go on to define one of the most iconic dances in pop music history.

Beyoncé Is Reportedly Filming a Music Video at the Colosseum

July 18, 2018

Apparently shutting down one epicenter of cultural history was not enough for Beyoncé, because she is now reportedly trying to film something at the Colosseum. You know, the ancient Roman landmark where gladiators once dueled to the death some 2,000 years ago? Yep, that Colosseum.

According to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, Beyoncé has put in a request to film something at the Colosseum (it's not yet clear what). She initially requested to book the amphitheater on July 7 and July 8, when she and Jay-Z were in town for their On the Run II tour, but was reportedly rejected by Italy’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage because Italian scientist Alberto Angela already had it reserved. Il Messaggero also notes her request was too last minute, as the Colosseum is “a very complicated place.” (Closing down the Louvre to shoot "Apes--t," on the other hand? A total breeze.)

But Beyoncé, being Beyoncé, is not ready to throw in the towel, and has reportedly resubmitted her request, which is currently under review.

It's worth mentioning she has filmed at the Colosseum before (remember that Pepsi commercial with Britney Spears and Pink?), so if the timing is right, it seems like things will be a go. Block out your Saturday nights for another surprise!

No I.D. reflects on 4:44 and how “Bam” almost went to Beyoncé

July 2, 2018

It's been a year since Jay Z released his thirteenth studio album, the critically acclaimed 4:44. In honor of its anniversary, producer No I.D., who picked up a producer of the year Grammy nomination for his work on the album, reflected on how it all came together and which beat on the album almost went to Beyoncé.

“Family Feud” (Featuring Beyoncé)

Scientifically to me, certain vibrational tones create a reaction, a feeling, an emotion, tension, joy or suspense. So that’s what I look for in music. Whether it’s musicians, sampling — whatever. And the The Clark Sisters just had this emotion already going. Just like joyous and pain and spiritual and I know part of Bey’s joy in music stems from that type of emotion.

And when I first did the music, of course I wanted her to be a part of the album and when she first heard the track, she was like, “Oh, no, no! I’m GETTING on that!” So she really kind of jumped in and did her part. And that song came in at the very end. Maybe about a week before the album came out. I didn’t really have to incorporate her. She’s a producer in her own right. She came in and wove herself right into it. Did an amazing job at completing the song to be honest.

New "Lemonade" Stills

To celebrate the #nationalLEMONADEday on Saturday, Beyonce.com was updated with new stills from "Lemonade," as well as explanations of each chapter title.<br /><br /><p style="text-align:center"><b>PRAY YOU CATCH ME</b><br /><br /><i>Intuition</i><br /><br /><i>noun</i> Read more...
Blame Instagram, if you must. On August 9, Boots, the producer behind Beyoncé‘s 2013 self-titled album, was recording an Instagram video while riding a car around New York City. Playing in the background is an unreleased Beyoncé song, as heard in a four-second snippet. Apparently Boots did this by accident.

“that moment when u didn’t realize Instagram records audio from your phone even though the camera app doesn’t,” he says on Twitter. “accidents in the 21st century.”

Of course Boots didn’t say when this Beyoncé track was recorded, or to which project it belongs, or even whether he is responsible. But he does only have one production credit in Lemonade, for “6 Inch” featuring The Weeknd. Given how close he and Beyoncé are now, it seems possible that he worked on much more than that.

“That’s one of the most rewarding friendships and work relationships of my life,” Boots said of Beyoncé in a Facebook Q&A. Hear the snippet of the unreleased track below.

With Beyonce’s “Sorry” fading at rhythmic radio, Columbia Records is beginning to shift focus to the follow-up single.

“Hold Up,” said follow-up, was recently made available to rhythmic radio programmers. It will officially impact in conjunction with the August 16 add board.

Radio has already shown some interest in the song. In the days following the release of “Lemonade” — prior to Columbia’s confirmation that “Sorry” would be the official radio single — “Hold Up” registered as one of the album’s most played tracks.

“Sorry,” which is still gaining in airplay (though not necessarily moving to a higher position) at the urban format, peaked at #6 on the Mediabase rhythmic chart.

Down 23.2% in airplay versus the same time last week, it is #8 on the building chart for the current tracking period.
Beyoncé is the leading nominee for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, with a career high 11 noms for her visual album Lemonade. Make sure to vote and help her win!

Beyonce can now add the Cannes Lions’ most prestigious honor to her awards shelf: her music video for “Formation,” surprise-released in February, took home one of two Grand Prix Lion Awards at the inaugural Cannes Lions Entertainment for Music, awarded Friday night (June 24.)

“Formation” was the top winner in the highly competitive Excellence In Music Video category, which shortlisted 13 music videos on Thursday and awarded eight with prizes on Friday. Other honorees included Silver Lion winners “Voodoo In My Blood,” by Massive Attack feat. Young Fathers; “Luminous Freedom” by New Build and “Blackstar” by David Bowie; as well as Bronze Lion winners “Hello” by Adele; “Runnin” by Naughty Boy featuring Beyonce & Arrow Benjamin and “Wide Open” by the Chemical Brothers featuring Beck.

Beyonce isn’t the only member of the Carter family with a Cannes Lions Grand Prix under their belt: in 2011, Jay Z took home two -- from the Integrated and Outdoor Lions -- for Droga5 and Bing’s “Decoded” campaign, which hid all 320 pages of Jay Z’s autobiography in 13 cities across the globe.

Though “Formation” doesn’t represent the typical Grand Prix-winning campaign in that no corporate brand was attached, Grey Group’s evp-director of music Josh Rabinowitz, jury president of Lions Entertainment for Music, argued that the video’s re-positioning of Beyonce’s personal brand was just as powerful. “ the biggest artist on the planet taking serious risks,” Rabinowitz said in a press conference earlier in the day, announcing the winners. “This is a mainstream pop artist pushing the limits on the way we perceive things of race in culture, and the perception of women in culture.”
Beyonce’s 4, her straightforwardly-titled fourth studio album, was unleashed for the world to hear on June 24, 2011. As her first solo album independent from her former manager and father Matthew, Beyonce experimented with more intimate themes and eclectic sound stylings, setting the album apart from her first three LP’s. 4 seemingly serves as the catalyst for her musical journey of deeper, more personal themes displayed in her self-titled fifth album and her recent sixth opus, Lemonade.

However, we know a ship needs a strong crew behind it to keep it afloat. Beyonce meticulously chooses to work with a select team of creatives who she believes will give her work that certain je ne sais quoi, and develops professional relationships with those who focus on the art as a whole. We thought it would be interesting to get a behind-the-scenes look at the album from some of the people who were immersed in its development. Read on to see what it was like to work with Bey both in the booth and in the dance studio from colleagues who aided in the sonic and visual success of this project.

Symbolyc One (S1) was a co-producer on “Best Thing I Never Had.” A Very GOOD Beats signee, S1 has produced for Kanye West (“Power”), Eminem (“Bad Guy” from the Marshall Mathers LP 2”) and The Throne (“Murder To Excellence”).

VIBE: Before you worked on 4, have you ever worked with Beyonce before? And if not, how did she initially get a hold of you?
S1:
So, this was actually my first time working with Beyonce, on the 4 album. The way I began a working relationship with her was that I worked with Kanye on the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, and I had the honor of going to London and Australia to work with him and Jay Z on Watch The Throne. So, while we working on the Watch The Throne album, Beyonce was out there of course, so that’s when I really started to build a relationship with her. On our second trip—we went to London first—so on our second trip to Australia, we really started to build a working relationship. We were in this mansion together that they built that had these three studios, and they built a studio for Beyonce on the third floor. She invited me up to her floor to listen to some songs that she was working on for 4, so I went up, listened to some songs and gave my critique on some of them. Read more...
After a recent Beyonce' concert in her native city of Houston, her dad Mathew Knowles was photographed in a fun-loving group hug with her and Blue Ivy. It is one of many such moments, where the two have enjoyed time spent since his granddaughter's arrival. With Father's Day fast approaching, Knowles is asked to reflect on such moments with his daughter and granddaughter, and how he sees his role as a famous dad.

"That pictures shows three generations of my bloodline captured together. I have a lot of these and while it is easy to look at your kin and feel pride, what's even stronger than that feeling is love. Nowadays change is both fast and constant and divisiveness is taking center stage everywhere. I ask myself what stays and what heals? What forgives and brings us all together when everything else falls apart? It's love. As far as being a famous father, it doesn't matter if fame lasts 15 minutes or 50 years... families are forever and blood is thicker than everything," Knowles remarked.
The first nominees for the 2016 Teen Choice Awards have been unveiled. So far, Beyonce has recieved two nominations. More nominees, as well as host and performers, will be announced in the coming weeks. Fans can now vote for their favorites in music, movie, TV and other categories on the TCA website.

When Beyonce dropped her latest visual album "Lemonade" two weeks ago, the internet nearly blew up as critics and fans alike tried to decode lyrics and connect dots of rumored infidelity. ABC13 got an exclusive interview with the singer's mother to find out what she thinks of her daughter's latest release.

"People make it all about the cheating and betrayal and, yes, that's a part of it because that is something you have to heal from," Tina Knowles-Lawson said of Beyonce's creation. "If you really listen to the poetry it is one of hope and redemption and hopefully that can be healing for people."

Though the visual album is made up of vignettes covering the hurt, betrayal and depression caused by Jay Z's alleged infidelity, Knowles-Lawson said "Lemonade" comes from a good place in Beyonce's heart and is intended to help others through the pain of relationships soured.

"It could be about anyone's marriage," said Knowles Lawson. "I think that everybody at one time or another has been betrayed and lied to and it's about the pain--and it's about the healing process--and it's about how do you get past that and move on."

Knowles-Lawson is no stranger to the pain of infidelity either. Her marriage to Mathew Knowles, Beyonce's father, ended in 2011 after their relationship deteriorated years earlier. She says it was her children who helped to build her up again after the divorce. Read more...
As previously reported, Beyonce's Lemonade soars onto the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated May 14), taking the No. 1 spot with 653,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. The set also crowns the sales-based Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, with 485,000 in pure album sales, granting the superstar her sixth No. 1 on both charts.

The release of the album additionally spurs all 12 of its tracks to debut on the Billboard Hot 100, while all 12 also appear on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (with 11 debuting), powered by mostly by sales and streams.

With her Hot 100 entrances, Beyonce makes history: it's the first time that a female act has charted 12 or more songs on the Hot 100 at the same time, surpassing Taylor Swift's previous record of 11 (set on Nov. 13, 2010, sparked by the release of her album Speak Now). On Dec. 5, 2015, Justin Bieber bested Drake and the Beatles for the one-week record among all acts: 17 songs on the Hot 100 simultaneously, as his album Purpose debuted atop the Billboard 200.

"Formation," originally released Feb. 6 preceding her Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show performance of the track the following day, leads her parade of debuts with points stemming from 174,000 in digital sales (the most of any of the album's tracks) and 6.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 28. While "Formation" charts on the Hot 100 for the first time, it re-enters the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 6; it had previously peaked at No. 33 (March 19) based only on its performance at radio.

Of the newly released Lemonade songs (i.e., all except "Formation"), "Sorry" was streamed the most in the tracking week, logging 14.2 million U.S. streams, while "Hold Up" racked up the highest sales: 123,000 downloads in its first week. The sultry "6 Inch," featuring The Weeknd, starts with the third-highest weekly domestic streams (12.2 million) and sales (99,000).

Here's a look, song by song, at Beyonce's dozen tracks apiece on the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: Read more...
Capping the Billboard Hot 100's top 10, Beyonce blasts onto the chart at No. 10 with "Formation." The song, from her album Lemonade, which roars onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1, is her 16th solo Hot 100 top 10 and first since "Drunk in Love," featuring Jay Z, which reached No. 2 in February 2014. (Beyonce has also notched 10 top 10s as part of Destiny's Child.)

"Formation" bows with roughly two-thirds of its Hot 100 points from sales, as it starts at No. 3 on Digital Songs with 174,000 sold, having gone on sale April 25. It also enters Streaming Songs at No. 43 (6.5 million) with almost all its streaming points from Tidal, which holds exclusive streaming rights to Lemonade. (A nominal portion of streaming points is from user-generated clips featuring the song's official audio.)

"Formation," which also re-enters Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at a new high of No. 6, had bubbled under the Hot 100 and rose to No. 33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in March, driven by airplay, when it was not available for purchase (and Tidal did not report the song's streaming totals to Nielsen; none of its streams prior to April 23 were reported by Tidal to Nielsen). The track first made waves in early February, as Beyonce performed it live during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show (Feb. 7).
Hits Daily Double reported today that Columbia (Beyonce’s label) is sending ‘Sorry’ to Rhythm radio later this week, which could signal it being the first official single to be taken from the album.

Lemonade was originally released just over a week ago (April 23) after Beyonce premiered her short movie, of the same name, on cable network HBO. After the movie came to a close, Beyonce dropped the album as a TIDAL exclusive.

Less than 48 hours later, the album was in demand that much that Beyonce and her team decided to release the album to retailers such as iTunes an Amazon. However, Tidal has confirmed to Unreality TV that Lemonade will continue to stream on Tidal in “perpetuity”.

When the album was originally released, it was thought that ‘6 Inch’ featuring The Weeknd would be lifted as the first official single from the album, but it looks like Beyonce wanted to see how the album perfomed before making anything official.
