The-Dream on Why He'd Give His Kidney to Beyoncé

Klaudia//January 13, 2024
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The-Dream talks about his friendship with Beyoncé and more.

You worked on the new song “My House” with Beyoncé for the Renaissance film — what was it like creating it?

It was beautiful. Me and that girl, man, we just clicked. It’s not even work anymore. It is, “Hey, well, what you doing? What you doing? Good morning, good morning, let’s do something. Let’s do it.” And then the song’s done.

So that was one of those things that happened pretty late. We were like, “Yo, we need something for this film.” And it’s October at that particular point. “Are you going to pick a record we already have?” And I think we thought about that at first, and then it was more so about, “Hey, let’s just do something from how we are feeling now. Man, let’s just have a good time.”

And then that record came about, and that’s kind of the end of the story. “How do we wrap Renaissance up in a way without also trying to compete with it or make something that’s light-Renaissance, because Renaissance is a special thing?”

The Beyoncé Album That Changed Everything

Klaudia//December 16, 2023
10 years ago this week, Beyoncé released what many fans consider her defining work: Her fifth studio album, simply titled Beyoncé. From a production standpoint, the album was a feat, but what makes it significant isn’t only the music—it’s the way it shifted her career. Beyoncé marks the moment that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter stopped playing by the rules of the industry, and instead put the industry under her own will.

The album's origin story is certified pop culture lore at this point. The clock struck twelve on Friday, December 13th, 2013 and without any promotion, easter eggs, or clues to fans—let alone music-world professionals—Beyoncé dropped her fifth studio album. The tactic was unheard of at the time; albums normally dropped earlier in the week to better account for Billboard charting and overall sales counts, and releasing an album with little to no promotion was considered a sure pathway to a flop.

Beyoncé could only be purchased as a whole (on iTunes or physically via CD in stores) because the star wanted people to experience the entire project at once. "People don't make albums anymore,” she said in her 2013 HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. "They just try to sell a bunch of little quick singles. And they burn out, and they put out a new one, and they burn out, and they put out a new one."

This was also highly controversial, but the album proved that fan demand can drive the success of a project, even without corporate marketing teams or soulless press runs. Beyoncé sold 828,773 units in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling album ever on iTunes at the time of its release. It went on to win three Grammy awards the following year.

Beyoncé Drops 'Grown Woman' on Streaming to Celebrate 10 Years of Her Self-Titled Album

Klaudia//December 13, 2023
It’s a big day for Beyoncé and the Beyhive. On Wednesday (Dec. 13), Queen Bey commemorated 10 years of her self-titled surprise visual album, and she’s treating fans to some new music — kind of — to celebrate.

When Beyoncé arrived on iTunes with no pre-release announcement or promotion in the wee hours of Dec. 13, 2013, the 14-track record came complete with 17 music videos. While certain songs on the album — namely “Partition” and “Haunted” — got two music videos to honor their long-winding structures, there was a bonus music video that did not accompany an audio track.

For a decade, Beyoncé fans have only been able to stream “Grown Woman” as a music video. On YouTube — where the clip was uploaded to honor the album’s one-year anniversary and the release of its platinum edition — the Jake Nava-helmed video has amassed over 145 million views. Before that, however, Beyoncé first teased a lengthy snippet of “Grown Woman” in a career-reflecting Pepsi ad that debuted just a few months after she rocked the Super Bowl Halftime Show stage in 2013.

Now, fans can enjoy the track as they would any other Beyoncé song. The Afrobeats-tinged single finally arrived on streaming platforms on Dec. 13, marking the second gift from Queen Bey following an Instagram video montage acknowledging the album’s anniversary.

Beyoncé drops new single 'My House' after 'Renaissance' film premiere

Klaudia//December 2, 2023
On the heels of her "Renaissance" film premieres, Beyoncé just released a new song title "My House."

The unannounced, 4-minute single was shared Dec. 1, the day after the London premiere of her documentary and concert movie "Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé." While not on the original "Renaissance" album, "My House" is in the same style as the other songs on the album with its loud and proud vocals, calls and responses with background singers and a transition into the second half of the song that is house music.



James Fauntleroy Talks Working With Beyoncé

Klaudia//November 18, 2023
In a wide-ranging conversation with Billboard, James Fauntleroy discusses working with Beyoncé:

Now, I would be remiss if I didn’t ask this since you do sing “Sleigh like Beyoncé” in the song, so have you worked with Queen Bey recently?

The last thing we did was that song with Nas and Jay-Z . I sang the hook. That was the first song I ever put out that I didn’t write, actually. They sent that to me done already and just asked me to put my voice on it and Beyoncé at the end which sounds epic.

As I was saying earlier about service, it’s really to make whoever is playing Beyoncé, the listener who is Beyoncé in that moment, have the opportunity to feel that. I’m always gon f–k with Beyoncé on whatever s–t she’s doing, but the idea came into my mind because of what she represents.

Since that Nas song, I’ve worked on some s–t for her, I’ll say. But nobody knows what’s coming out except for her, so I really have no idea.

No ID Reveals Beyoncé's "Church Girl" Beat Was Originally For JAY-Z

Klaudia//October 24, 2023
No ID has revealed that Beyoncé’s Renaissance track “Church Girl” was originally produced for Jay-Z.

While interviewing with Stereogum recently, the super-producer shared a funny story of how Bey “stole” her husband’s beat.

“I was at house one day, and I had some equipment with me, and I just started making a beat,” he explained. “And he was rapping to it. It was for him. And he just put it on the computer. I never thought about it again, I literally forgot about it. And then one day, I just get a call. When you get two to three calls from people in a row, you know it’s something.”

He continued, “‘Hey, do you have this idea? Beyonce got somethin’ to it,'” he recalled Hov telling him. “And Jay jokingly tells me, ‘Man, she stole my beat. She was like, “Remember that idea in the computer that you didn’t finish?”’ And I went to see her , we talked about the record, we listened to her album.”

No ID also shared that “Church Girl” was one of the few songs on the album that Bey wanted to sound different from the other house tracks.

“When she was doing a house album, I was like, ‘Aw man, I wanna do some house,’ and she goes, ‘Nah, we got this “Church Girl” record,'” he said. “I was a house DJ before I did Hip-Hop. Actually, the first records I did were house, at like 13 years old.”

“It’s art, it’s there,” No ID added of the single. “Argue, say whatever you want, think what you want. I know people that don’t like it, I know people that love it and swear by it. Usually when music is divisive that means it’s something new. To each their own, some people like raspberry ice cream too.”

Beyoncé Shopping New Renaissance Visual Album That Was Shot in Secret By Nadia Lee Cohen

Klaudia//September 2, 2023
Beyoncé is coming to Los Angeles this weekend to play three sold-out shows at SoFi Stadium as part of her Renaissance World Tour, and there will surely be plenty of Hollywood executives in the crowd — including some lucky executives who have already seen a piece of Beyoncé-produced media that the general public does not yet know exists.

To that end, Above the Line has exclusively learned that Queen Bey and her Parkwood Entertainment banner are shopping a new Renaissance visual album to studios and streamers, though there haven’t been any takers just yet.

The film was directed by Nadia Lee Cohen, a British artist, photographer, and rising filmmaker who has shot numerous magazine covers and music videos, having worked with artists such as Tyler the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Katy Perry, and Kali Uchis, and brands including Adidas, Balenciaga, Gucci, and Valentino.

Sources say that Renaissance is “artsy” and in line with Beyoncé’s other visual albums Lemonade and Black Is King, but also “weirder,” saying it hasn’t been Disney-fied like the latter film, which won an Emmy for its striking costumes.
