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 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.

Lil Nas X shared a photo of himself and Jay-Z, who was dressed as Vincent Vega from Quentin Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction. Beyonce was most likely Mia Wallace.

Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All),” featuring Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin, tops Billboard & Clio’s Top TV Commercials chart, powered by Shazam, for September, thanks to the song’s appearance in Chanel’s “Film” ad.

Using tagging data from Shazam, as well as sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music, Billboard partners with Clio Music each month to present a chart ranking the top songs in commercials. Rankings exclude any song that has recently charted within the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 or top 10 on a genre chart.

“Runnin’,” which debuted and peaked at No. 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 2015, leads all songs with 70,000 Shazam tags, 6,000 downloads sold and 2 million U.S. streams during the month of September, according to Nielsen Music.

The song is the first No. 1 on the chart for Naughty Boy, Beyonce, and Arrow Benjamin. Beyonce’s previous peak on the chart was at No. 2 on the April 2017-dated list, with “Freedom,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, which appeared in Apple Watch’s “Live Bright” commercial. Read more...

Prince may have been known for his brilliance in more ways than one, but Beyoncé is highlighting a lesser-known talent of the late legendary artist -- his comedic timing.

The Lemonade singer penned the foreword of Prince: A Private View -- a photo retrospective of the pop icon's life, featuring the photography of Afshin Shahidi (father of Black-ish star Yara Shahidi) -- on shelves Oct. 24. In one excerpt, Queen Bey admits she almost lost it while performing with the "Purple Rain" rocker at the 2004 GRAMMYs, because of how he ended the performance.

“Prince’s timing was genius and his sense of humor, spontaneous and unexpected," Beyonce, 34, writes. "At the end of 'Purple Rain'/'Let’s Go Crazy'/'Crazy in Love' medley, I had no idea he would say what he did. We did talk about making a face but when he blurted out 'Don’t hate us ‘cause we fab,' it took everything I had to keep my composure."

Remembering the performance, we can see why it'd be hard not to!

Backing up, Beyoncé begins the excerpt by telling the story of how the two prepared for their spectacular GRAMMYs appearance. Read more...
Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a third week, marking a new longevity record for a hit by an unaccompanied female rapper. Plus, J Balvin and Willy William's "Mi Gente" blasts from No. 21 to No. 3, sparked by its newly added featured artist, Beyonce; Imagine Dragons' "Thunder" rumbles 17-7; and Demi Lovato hits a new best career rank, as "Sorry Not Sorry" rises 10-8 on the latest chart (dated Oct. 21).

As we do every Monday, let's run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 10).

"Mi Gente" surges from No. 21 to No. 3 on the Hot 100 (after previously reaching No. 19), after the first full week of tracking for its new remix featuring Beyonce, scoring the chart's greatest gains in sales and streaming. It rockets 34-1 on Digital Song Sales (79,000 sold, up 436 percent, with 87 percent of its sales from its new remix) and 14-5 on Streaming Songs (28.7 million, up 50 percent), while also climbing 32-29 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 18 percent).

J Balvin and William each earn their first Hot 100 top 10, while Beyonce banks her 17th (as a soloist, to go along with 10 as a member of Destiny's Child). She had last reached the region with Lemonade track "Formation," which spent a week at No. 10 (upon its debut) in May 2016. She notches her highest rank since "Drunk in Love," featuring JAY-Z, peaked at No. 2 on Feb. 15, 2014. Read more...
On Thursday evening, Beyonce shared a 20 second video on Instagram announcing she had joined a remix of J Balvin and Willy William's hit "Mi Gente" and would donate all her proceeds to disaster relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other recently affected Caribbean islands.

Following in the footsteps of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's record-breaking success with the Justin Bieber-featuring "Despacito" remix, Beyonce's good news with a good cause marked a big moment for Latin music in the mainstream. With Queen Bey singing in both Spanish and English on the track, it and its star-studded music video racked up millions of streams in its first 24 hours, topping iTunes' sales charts in 30 countries and YouTube's trend ranking, and looks prime to hit the Hot 100 top 10.

Here's how the collaboration came to be:

A remake of an original song by French DJ Willy Williams, "Mi Gente" had the makings of a global hit when it was first released in April and immediately sparked talk of a general market remix. "But we wanted it to live for a while and get as big as it could on a global scale in Spanish," says Rebeca Leon, who co-manages Balvin with Balvin's label, Universal Music Latin Entertainment (UMLE).

The "lofty goal," says UMLE president Victor Gonzalez, "was to make it No. 1 on Spotify at a global level." Read more...
Beyoncé showed why she is the Queen, showering Lady Gaga in gifts to let her fellow singer know she’s loved amid her fibromyalgia battle.

The singer, 36, gifted her “Telephone” partner, 31, an Ivy Park sweatshirt and flowers, which the latter shared in two separate posts on Instagram.

“Not having a good pain day,” Gaga wrote in the caption. “Thank you honey B for sending me this comfy sweatshirt. Keeps me warm outside in a hammock so I can be w the trees, and the sky, and the sun and take deep breaths. Feel so lucky to have so much love.”

In a second post, Gaga shared a photo of red roses along with a card. “Thank you so much honey B,” the singer wrote. “Miss you. this was so kind. If I hadn’t seen your videos on TV at grandmas house after I got dropped from def jam records, I would have given up. You inspire us all. The dream you embody kept me going.” Read more...
While the actresses in 2001's cult hit Josie and the Pussycats only sang backing vocals for Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley, filmmakers apparently had a number of notable musicians audition for the film -- including Beyoncé Knowles, who would later become one of the biggest stars on the planet.

The revelation came as part of an interview with Billboard, who were speaking with directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan as well as star Rachael Leigh Cook and Hanley ahead of a concert Tuesday night in Los Angeles in which Hanley played songs from the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack for the first time live.

“The list of people who auditioned to be in the movie. The fact that Beyoncé, Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes and Aaliyah came in to audition was crazy,” Elfont said. “I think it was 2000. We read Left Eye twice. She really wanted to play the part. Beyoncé was really quiet and shy. Who knew? It was a comedy and Aaliyah was more serious and thoughtful. We wanted someone who could really play the comedy.”

When the film was in production, Beyoncé would have been well-known as a part of Destiny's Child but wasn't the global phenom that she would later become.

Had she won the role of Valerie Brown -- eventually played in the film by Rosario Dawson -- the band's meteoric rise in the film would likely have turned into a metaphor for Beyoncé herself in the years following the film's release and subsequent box office failure. Read more...
Beyoncé’s first concert after childbirth might not be coming as soon as some had hoped.

A rep for the singer denied an Us Weekly report from earlier Thursday that claimed Beyoncé and her rapper husband, JAY-Z, would team up for a benefit concert in New York in support of those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

The report had stated the concert would take place on Oct. 17 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A spokesperson for JAY-Z's streaming service Tidal, meanwhile, said nothing has been announced about its annual benefit show.

"TIDAL will be hosting our annual benefit concert with details to soon follow," the rep said. "We have not announced or confirmed any line up or partner organizations, but stay tuned."
Michel Gondry, the independent French filmmaker who perhaps most famously directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, says he has an unfinished Beyoncé collaboration waiting in the wings.

During an interview with Canadian publication La Presse, Gondry spoke of his future plans, saying, "I have two projects: a rather personal film about my creative wanderings while shooting a movie, with rather extreme and illogical things, and a TV series for an American channel."

He then added that he had worked with Bey on a mysterious project that was put on hold when she got pregnant last year. "Unfortunately, it's not out yet because she twins," he said. "But it's a finished clip very, very well, I think."

Aside from the many feature films he's made, Gondry also has extensive experience making critically acclaimed music videos for artists including Daft Punk, The White Stripes, and Björk.

Whatever it is, we can't wait to see it! Truly a dream collaboration.
The IVY PARK 2017 fall/winter campaign introduces four new faces. Actress Laverne Cox and dancer Karen McDonald pose alongside models Grace Bol and Ralph Souffrant for a diverse representation of beauty and strength.

Each muse is styled in its classic pieces, updated for the fall season. The color palette is reworked to include a range of shades like deep teal, porcelain blue, chili red, scarlet and dusty pink. The hues are colorblocked on asymmetrical jackets, sweats and T-shirts that add a new level to activewear. Co-founder Beyoncé shared the inspiration behind the unique campaign:

“The message for this campaign is to celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. True beauty and power are born out of strength of character from the inside out. There is no one standard of beauty.”

BeyonceOnline.org received a review copy of the "Beyoncegraphica" biography by Chris Roberts that was announced in July. As the book hits stores today, we share our thoughts on the release. Head over to Amazon to buy the book now!

Just like a proper biography, "Beyoncegraphica" describes the history of Beyonce's life and career, but what's distinctive about it is that it contains graphs and charts. They are used to present almost everything that you can think of: music sales and streaming, charts, awards, profits, social media followers, charity activities. However, we're not just flooded with numbers and cold facts, we can find out how many costume changes Beyonce had each tour, how many people named their children after her, what's in her tour rider, the significance of the number 4 and many, many more. What is more, many graphs compare Beyonce to other artist so we can see how influential she actually is compared to others. In the text part of the book, we can find many quotes, from Beyonce, her family and co-workers to fellow artists and industry people. Not only does the book detail her history, but it also shows her influence. Additionally, it is filled with pictures.

In my opinion, "Beyoncegraphica" is very appealing considering its focus on visuals. The information that are well-known are presented in a new and interesting way. I would definitely recommend reading it, whether you're new to the BeyHive or you know Beyonce's history by heart.
Celebrities are not finished helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, and Reese Witherspoon are among those set to participate in a multi-network telethon, Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief, to assist those affected by the devastating storm. Hand in Hand will air Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. (live ET/delayed PT) on ABC, CBS, CMT, FOX and NBC.

George Clooney, Karlie Kloss, Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Kelly Rowland, Blake Shelton, Barbra Streisand and more also are set to participate.

Students at Copenhagen University are being offered classes on Beyoncé.

Already 75 students at the university - which dates back more than 530 years - have signed up for the course.

The class, entitled “Beyoncé, Gender and Race” will be taught in much the same way as other cultural courses such as opera, the Local reported.

Such is the interest in the class that it has been moved to a larger lecture hall.

Erik Steinskog told the Danish broadcaster, TV2 that the work of Beyoncé Knowles was a matter of academic interest.

“We will analyse her songs and music videos. There will be a focus on gender, sexuality and race," he said.

"One of the goals is to introduce black feminist thought, which is not well known in Scandinavia. We want to explore the kind of entity feminism is,” he said.

“Beyoncé is important in understanding the world we live in. Beyoncé is one of the biggest pop artists today, which makes her important in an analysis of contemporary times,” Prof Steinskog added.
Beyoncé has launched a new initiative through her BeyGOOD Foundation to raise funds for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. On a new page of her website, she asks fans to donate to Bread of Life and Greater Houston Community Foundation, two local organizations that “have been working with the displaced from the start of Hurricane Harvey's landfall.” Donations will be put towards “long-term revitalization” as well as the purchasing of various immediate needs for victims of the storm, including cots, baby products, wheelchairs, and more.

We finally know what inspired JAY-Z and Beyoncé in naming their newborn twins.

The rap star told Rap Radar in a podcast released Friday the couple’s new baby girl was named after the 13th Century poet, Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.

"Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter," JAY-Z said, confirming what many have speculated since the twins' names were first announced in June.

But the process for their son's name, Sir, was a little more organic.

"Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that," JAY-Z, 47, said. "He just came out like, Sir."

The Tidal music streaming service owner also revealed to Rap Radar how his and Bey's first daughter, Blue Ivy, 5, rapped on his "4:44" album, saying she climbed up onto a stool and started stringing together a rhyme.

“She got the headphones and she climbed on the little stool, and then she just started rapping,” he said. "I was like, 'Oh, s--t.' I have (her freestyle) on my phone. Five minutes! Five minutes of her doing that."
Beyoncé has pledged to do her part to help Hurricane Harvey victims.

The Houston native released an exclusive statement Monday afternoon to the Chronicle regarding the devastating effects still being felt throughout the city.

"My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help," she said.

"I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John's in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can."

BeyGOOD, launched in 2013 during the Mrs. Carter World Tour, is a philanthropic effort that partners with global charity organizations to get people employed and provide clothing, counseling, housing, food and medical assistance.

Beyoncé posted a black and white photo on Instagram of herself holding the Texas flag with the caption, "Texas you are in my prayers." In less than a day it's received more than 1 million likes.
Laverne Cox casually dropped the news that Beyoncé asked the “Orange Is The New Black” star to collaborate on a new project. While the details are still incredibly sparse, Cox broke the news Monday on “Access Hollywood,” where Cox discussed the first time she met the Queen Bee and her Emmy nomination for “Orange Is The New Black.”

The actress wrote on Twitter: "Yes it's true. I am collaborating with @beyonce on a new project. #QueenBey herself. More details Sept. 6. #Beyonce #TransIsBeautiful"
