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.

A Trio of 'Lion King' Albums Crowd Top 10 on Soundtracks Chart

July 31, 2019

The top 10 of Billboard's latest Soundtracks chart, dated Aug. 3, is brought to you by all things The Lion King, as three companion albums to both the new Disney movie and the same-named 1994 animated film populate the region.

Beyoncé’s new The Lion King: The Gift project opens at No. 1 on the tally, earning 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 25, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, Walt Disney Records’ new The Lion King soundtrack climbs 4-2 on the tally with 22,000 units earned (up 46%), and the same label’s soundtrack to the 1994 animated film pounces 13-9 with 7,000 units (up 48%).

The Soundtracks chart ranks the most popular soundtrack albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

"The Lion King: The Gift" Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

July 29, 2019

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.)

"The Lion King" Rules With $185 Million Debut

July 22, 2019

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.

Inside "The Lion King: The Gift"

July 21, 2019

Yemi Alade had a cold.

Last month, the Nigerian star, who recently passed the one-million-subscribers mark on YouTube, flew to Los Angeles to work on a project by Beyoncé. But when Alade landed, she discovered she no longer had a singing voice. “I couldn’t understand what had happened to me,” she says. “I could talk, but I couldn’t even hit the lowest key.”

Panicked, she immediately went into full recovery mode. “I went for a steaming so I could get more moisture,” Alade recalls. “I jacked up on vitamin C. I went in on lemon and ginger. I felt like an herbalist, I was going in on everything.”

When Alade hit the studio the next morning, “the excitement awoke my voice” — she could sing. As a result, she appears twice on Beyoncé‘s The Lion King: The Gift, which is both a companion album to accompany the release of a new version of Disney’s famous film from 1994 and a tribute to several strains of contemporary African pop from one of the United States’ biggest stars. Alade is joined by other Nigerian luminaries: Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Mr. Eazi, and Wizkid. Beyoncé also looked beyond Nigeria as well, recruiting Shatta Wale (Ghana), Salatiel (Cameroon), Moonchild Sanelly (South Africa), and Busiswa (also South Africa) to contribute to The Gift.

The star, 31, is the voice of Queen Tara in the 3-D computer-animated family film Epic, in theaters May 24.

Q: When you were voicing your character, did you still go to the studio glamorously dressed? —Joyce O., Buffalo

A: Absolutely! I had to become Queen Tara, and she’s glamorous and strong. I’ve always wanted to play a queen. And she’s more than that; she’s fierce and powerful.

Q: If you had to describe yourself in four words, what would they be? —Anne E., Pawtucket, R.I.

A: Let’s see … loyal, ambitious, adventurous, and loving.

Q: Did becoming a mother make you closer to your mom? —Monica B., Lawrence, Kan.

A: We’ve always been close, but now I really appreciate everything she’s taught me, and I pass her life lessons along to my daughter . She’s a great mother and grandmother.

Q: Which artist would you like to perform a duet with? —Kathy W., Seaford, N.Y.

A: I was blessed to have recorded with Justin Timberlake recently and, years ago, with the late Luther Vandross. I would love to work with Adele and Bruno Mars.

Q: What’s your favorite food on tour? —Tim R., Aledo, Tex.

A: Since I dance onstage for two hours every day, sometimes I can have my favorite—pizza!

Online Extra: What’s her greatest accomplishment?

“My greatest accomplishment is giving birth to my beautiful daughter,” she says.
A vocalist, songwriter, fashion designer, model, actress and a tabloid icon, Beyonce is one of the busiest and most financially successful artists in the world, found near the top of every list accounting for power and influence among celebrities and artists, hence having an audience with her is a challenging endeavour, so I was delighted to have a 20 minute interview.

The rendezvous was set for 4.30pm at the Corinthia Hotel, in London, one of Beyonce’s stops on her Mrs. Carter show world tour. On my way to the conference room from the hotel’s lobby, I encounter security guards at every door. At one room, I see a crew busily unpacking photography equipment from a mountain of boxes and hauling it into the conference room, where they have literally built a photo studio, as if we were going to do a fashion shoot. You see, Beyonce doesn’t allow anyone to take her photo other than her own photographers.

Entering the room, I am greeted by her representatives with a ticket for her concert tonight, an elegant handbag that contained Beyonce’s brand perfume and served a Pepsi drink -Beyonce has $50 million dollar promotion deal with Pepsi. I am also reminded that once I entered the room, I woudn’t be able to leave it. I acquiesce contently- a decision that I soon regret.

I endure waiting over 90 frustrating minutes for Beyonce. The chilled Pepsi fails to quench my discomfiture, so her people, who keep promising that she is on her way, try vainly to numb my displeasure with more potent drinks, including high quality wine. Finally, someone says that she has just got out of her chair, and is heading to the lift, which sound promising. Read more...
Beyoncé, one of the most widely recognized and highly respected women in pop culture, has created an original song, "RISE UP" for the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios motion picture, EPIC, for which she also voices one of the lead characters. The song, performed by Beyoncé, is written by Beyoncé and Sia and produced by Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe. The track will be released by Columbia Records.

EPIC is a 3D CG adventure comedy that reveals a fantastical world unlike any other. From the creators of ICE AGE and RIO, EPIC tells the story of an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it. When a teenage girl finds herself magically transported into this secret universe, she teams up with an elite band of warriors and a crew of comical, larger-than-life figures, to save their world...and ours.

Beyoncé voices the leader of this magical world -- Queen Tara. Beautiful, agile and strong, Tara isn't just the Leafmen's Queen; she's the life force of the forest, which she presides over with respect, compassion and humor.

Other members of voice cast are Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Christophe Waltz, Aziz Ansari, Pitbull, Jason Sudeikis and rock legend Steven Tyler.

EPIC charges into theaters nationwide on May 24, 2013 and internationally beginning May 16, 2013.


Now on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, Beyonce is on top of the music world, and the singer/actress is also taking on the role of Queen Tara in the upcoming animated film, "EPIC."

In an interview with ABC News' Amy Robach on the London leg of her tour, Beyonce talked about her latest role, married life and how shocked she was at the outcry over her recent trip to Cuba. Read more...
A brand new trailer for the movie "Epic" featuring Beyonce as Queen Tara was just released. Watch it below and visit the gallery to see a photo of the singer recording the voice for the character in the studio.



Beyonce proved a huge draw for HBO on Saturday night.

The intimate documentary about the singer, Beyonce: Life is But a Dream, pulled 1.8 million viewers during its inaugural outing at 9 p.m. ET. It's the largest audience for a HBO doc since Nielsen revised its method of measuring viewership in 2004.

The only other documentary to approach Beyonce's haul was previous record-setter When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts. The Spike Lee miniseries about the devastation caused to New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina earned 1.7 million viewers in 2006.

Life is But a Dream's handsome haul pulled three times the ratings of recent first-runs for HBO's Sunday series Girls.
Lights, Camera, Beyoncé!

The day has finally come for fans to take an intimate sneak peek inside the life of one of the world’s most successful superstars. Beyoncé’s highly anticipated HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, debuts today, and we can. not. wait.
In Touch sat down for a Q&A session with Ed Burke, the film's co-director, who dished about the singer’s family, privacy and performances. So what does he really think of Queen B? Find out below.

IT: What kind of guidelines or boundaries did Beyoncé give you for this film?
EB: “It was a really open creative process. We co-directed it together and she was really hands on. It was very strange— it was two years in the making, but it was the last two weeks is where it really landed. It was so fast, we did it without an interview first, which is very challenging to do. We then did our interview post pregnancy when she was in a completely different place and it balanced out everything.

IT: How has motherhood changed her?
EB: “I would say she’s happier. She seems to be more grounded — and I know they always say ‘kids are the best thing for you,’ but I got to say, it’s true in this case.”

IT: And what about Jay Z?
EB: “Well they are an amazing family. They’re very private about their personal life but he is an amazing father and husband and he actually makes me think about my relationship with my wife —that’s how good he is. It’s the most surprising thing in the whole documentary that he let some of that stuff go. He’s in there doing some beautiful things as a husband and as a father.” Read more...
HBO: What made you decide to make a documentary?

BEYONCÉ: I decided to make a documentary for a number of reasons.

First of all, I just wanted to cut through the noise. We live in a celebrity-obsessed culture where there's a lot of information traveling and a lot of talk, but if you really take a look you'll see that for the most part, it's not me doing the talking. Making a documentary was a chance to show who I am and what I really care about.

And it was a new experience for me and an opportunity to examine my thoughts and emotions in a new way, to examine how I look at the world and the people around me, especially during a time when my spirit was put to the test. I was starting a business, launching a record and keeping a big secret inside of me, and it was a way to maintain my sanity, to keep my grip on the world.  I learned so much about myself in making this film, and that is what art is for me, an exploration of self.

HBO: How did you begin or approach the process? Did you have an idea in advance of what you wanted the story to be? Or did you discover themes and storylines along the way? 

BEYONCÉ: I don't think you'll find one documentary director who'll say that he or she knew right from the start what the film is going to be like in the end. Unlike fiction films, documentaries are really created in the edit process. All I knew going into this was that I wanted to share my point of view on life... I wouldn't have released a film just for the sake of self-documentation,  I wanted it to express what I believe to be true about life - that it's not random, that everything has a reason and that we need to be conscious of life's little clues and how the dots all connect or we miss out.  Read more...
