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 Reportedly Shoots "Brown Skin Girl" Video in London

November 3, 2019

Beyoncé is set to revisit her The Lion King: The Gift album with a music video for “Brown Skin Girl,” which is being filmed on various south London estates.

The album was released this past summer, but now the song will be treated as a single, according to the Daily Mail. Filming is taking place in both Catford and Thamesmead, along with members of the superstar’s team being seen near the HM Prison Thameside on Thursday.

The LEMONADE singer’s casting team is requesting “black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and ages” in London to come forward for the video.

A source also detailed to the Daily Mail Beyoncé’s wish to have the video “truly represent the essence of the song” and to have “normal people step forward and tell their stories” despite having name-dropped iconic figures like Naomi Campbell and Lupita Nyong’o in the lyrics.

Additional requests for people include different family structures, citing a request for blended, single parent, queer and adopted families. The video will also have a focus on a variety of body shapes and ages. The age range is stated to be girls as young as six months all the way to elderly women.

The video is set to be directed by Jean Nkiru, who worked on The Carters “APESH**T” video. “Brown Skin Girl” features Saint Jhn, Wizkid and Beyoncé’s own daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

Parkwood Entertainment's COO Steve Pamon's Interview for Billboard

October 18, 2019

Parkwood Entertainment president/COO Steve Pamon and his boss, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, lead Billboard’s annual list of the most influential executives and creatives in R&B and hip-hop.

Executives Of The Year
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
Chairman/CEO, Parkwood Entertainment
Steve Pamon
President/COO, Parkwood Entertainment

"Speaking of the Queen. She just called.” The words, spoken by Parkwood Entertainment’s head of public relations, Yvette Noel-Schure, stop Steve Pamon midsentence as he sits on a chair in the company’s midtown Manhattan offices. “Does she need me?” he asks. “No, no. She’s good. She’s good,” Noel-Schure replies. Pamon, who’s wearing a white T-shirt beneath a navy blue suit offset by a red-white-and-blue stripe on the sleeves and pant legs, relaxes into the chair and resumes speaking about his boss and their company -- that would be Beyoncé, “B,” as Pamon, 49, often calls her, and Parkwood Entertainment -- and the milestones of the 12 or so preceding months that have earned them Billboard’s 2019 R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players Executives of the Year honors.

Beyoncé was the big winner Sunday at the 2017 BET Awards, taking a total of five trophies at the music-rich event in Los Angeles. She won for Female R&B/Pop Artist, Album Of The Year for Lemonade, and Viewers Choice, Video Director Of The Year and Video Of The Year for “Sorry,” the latter honor shared with Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic.”

The singer may have skipped the BET Awards, but she still delivered a message to the crowd, as she asked her protégés Chloe x Halle to read her speech after winning the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award for "Sorry."

"Thank you BET for this award and your tremendous support of Lemonade. This has been a journey of love, of celebrating our culture, honoring the past, and approaching the present and future with hope and resolve," the speech began. "Thank you to my mother Tina Knowles Lawson for being my biggest, biggest teacher and consistent influence. Thank you to my entire family for so much love."

Queen Bey also gave a shout-out to her supportive fans. "My BeyHive, for riding with me. I love and appreciate you," Chloe x Halle said, reading the note. "To everyone at the show tonight, you all look so beautiful and at home, thank you and have a wonderful, wonderful night. From, Beyonce." Read more...
The early winners for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, announced Sunday by dick clark productions, included Beyonce with five wins: Top Female Artist, Top R&B Album ("Lemonade"), Top Touring Artist, Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Tour.

The Billboard Music Awards will be held Sunday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where more awards will be announced. Beyonce can still win Top Billboard 200 Album ("Lemonade") and Top Artist!
Grammy-winning songwriter Diane Warren will accept ASCAP’s Founders Award, handed out to pioneering songwriters for their exceptional contributions to music, at the rights organization’s annual Pop Music Awards on May 18 at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. She took a trip back in time to talk to Billboard about some of the songs that have meant the most to her over her prolific career.

“I Was Here,” Beyonce (2011): It’s really become this graduation anthem, so it’s kind of cool for someone who got kicked out of two schools and barely graduated to have a graduation theme. I played it on the phone for Jay Z and he loved it. At the same time, I sent it to Simon Cowell, thinking it could be for Leona Lewis or Susan Boyle. Jay Z said, "I’m going to have Beyonce call you." It was on a Monday. The album was due to be turned in that Friday. She said, "I’m stopping my whole album and I’m coming to record the vocal." I was in the studio with her, and in the morning I got a rejection letter from someone at Simon’s office , "This song just doesn’t go all the way for us." It was my favorite email to write back because I was like, "That’s ok. I’m in the studio with the biggest artist on the planet and it kind of went all the way for her. All good."
Beyoncé is the leading nominee for this year’s BET Awards, the network announced Monday morning.

The pop star, who is the most nominated and winning artist in the show’s 17-year-history, scored seven nods for her “Lemonade” — including album of the year.

The ceremony celebrates black excellence in music, film, TV, sports and philanthropy and will air live June 25 from the Microsoft Theater at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Last year, Beyoncé’s polarizing “Formation” video took one of the night’s biggest honors, video of the year; this year, her bawdy anthem “Sorry” is up against hits from Big Sean, Migos, Bruno Mars and her sister, Solange.

She’s also nominated for collaboration (with two different songs), female R&B/pop artist and video director.

Yesterday morning (April 25), the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) released its annual Global Music Report, an analysis of the revenue of the recorded-music business worldwide. The biggest headline: the global music business grew 5.9 percent in 2016 over the previous year, the biggest revenue growth since the IFPI began tracking the market in 1997 and the second-straight year of growth after 15 years of decline.

As part of that report, the IFPI also released a list of the top albums and songs globally for 2016, breaking out albums by sales numbers (digital downloads and physical sales) and tallying songs by track sales (individual track downloads) and track-equivalent streams. And while Drake was the top-selling artist worldwide last year -- he was named the IFPI's Global Recording Artist of the Year back in February, though total sales were not released -- Beyoncé's Lemonade was the highest-selling individual album of 2016 across the globe, according to the federation.

IFPI's February announcement included the list of the top 10 global artists of the year, with David Bowie, Coldplay, Adele and Justin Bieber rounding out the top five in order. Twenty One Pilots, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Prince and The Weeknd, respectively, made up the rest of the top 10.

But yesterday's Global Music Report broke down albums and songs individually, showcasing a few surprises. Check out the list below. Read more...
DJ Khaled’s “Shining (featuring Beyonce & Jay Z)” soars to the top spot on this week’s Mediabase urban airplay chart.

Up three places from last week’s position, “Shining” seizes the throne from Gucci Mane’s “Both (featuring Drake).” “Both” falls to #2 after four weeks on top.

“Shining” received ~4,337 spins during the April 16-22 tracking week, besting last week’s mark by a healthy 441 spins. “Both” garnered ~4,064 tracking period plays (-365).

Down one place, Khalid’s “Location” grabs #3 on the latest chart. It posted a weekly spin count of ~4,028 (+8).
The Billboard Music Awards are more than a month away, but we already have a good idea of who could be taking home the night’s biggest trophies. The first round of nominees were announced on Monday morning, and Beyonce has already got eight nominations:

Top Female Artist
Adele
Beyonce
Ariana Grande
Rihanna
Sia

Top Billboard 200 Album
Beyonce – Lemonade
Drake – Views
Rihanna – Anti

Melina Matsoukas, a director of music videos and television shows, had just returned home from a trip to Cuba when she got a call from Beyoncé, asking her to direct a video for a song called “Formation.” Matsoukas had directed nine of Beyoncé’s videos, and considered her “family.” But this assignment was unusually demanding. Beyoncé was working on “Lemonade,” a deeply personal “visual album” that touches on betrayals in black marriages—her parents’ and, reportedly, her own. “Formation” would be the first single, and an introduction to Beyoncé’s new aesthetic: both vulnerable and political. She wanted to release the song the day before she performed it at the Super Bowl, which meant that Matsoukas would have to submit a video within a few weeks. “It was the fastest delivery I had ever done in my life,” she told me.

When I visited her loft in Hollywood recently, Matsoukas opened her rose-gold laptop and pulled up the video. The brassy opening beats began as Beyoncé crouched on the roof of a police car, wearing a red-and-white blouse and a matching skirt: evocative of the rural South but made by Gucci. Matsoukas, who is tall and thin, with dark hair and high cheekbones, radiates a disconcerting hyperassurance. (She’s a Buddhist, with a fluctuating practice.) She is, as she says, “very loud and New York,” but her apartment projects an almost hermetic cool: Africanist art, a golden skull on a shelf, a tar-splashed vanity mirror.

After Matsoukas agreed to direct the video, Beyoncé invited her to her house in Los Angeles, and explained the concept behind “Lemonade.” “She wanted to show the historical impact of slavery on black love, and what it has done to the black family,” Matsoukas told me. “And black men and women—how we’re almost socialized not to be together.” This was a fraught subject for Beyoncé. She and her husband, the rapper Jay Z, are among the most famous couples in the world, and they had long been surrounded by rumors that he was unfaithful. Beyoncé considers herself a feminist, but for black women feminism can be a tenuous balancing act—advocating for women’s rights while supporting black men against racism. Black feminists have often been forced to pick between being politically black or politically female. “It’s an unfair struggle that only black women can understand and relate to,” Matsoukas said. With the “Lemonade” album, Beyoncé was publicly calling out the men in her life, an unexpected and, to her fans, thrilling decision. Read more...
Adele, Beyoncé and Maren Morris have all seen their sales surge after the Grammys – with some songs rising as much as 6,700%. The digital increase after music’s biggest night was reported by research company Nielsen.

Beyoncé did not win in the main categories despite nine Grammy nominations. She was still rewarded for an epic performance and unreserved praise from Adele.

Beyoncé’s fans responded with strong support on social media and more sales for her Lemonade album, which was up 267% on Sunday over its Friday/ Saturday average. “Formation,” nominated as both Song and Record of the year, grew by 105%. She also sung “Love Drought” (up by 1,249%) and “Sandcastles” (up 1,000%).
