Billboard To Honor Beyoncé With Executive Of The Year Award

October 18, 2019

Beyoncé is set to receive another major honor—as she should.

Billboard‘s third annual R&B Hip-Hop Players Issue, on stands Saturday, will spotlight major musicians and executives in the music industry, with Beyoncé and Parkwood Entertainment COO Steve Pamon both receiving the Executive of the Year Award.

The singer told Billboard that she chose Pamon as her COO because “we share a similar philosophy about business.”

“You don’t have to be an asshole to get things done,” she added. “It was important that I found someone with good character as a human being, with values whom I could truly trust, and someone who understands that my priority for my company is always creativity and art over commerce.”

Previously, the Morehouse College graduate worked at JPMorgan Chase, the NFL and HBO. Pamon also earned a degree from Stanford University.

Vogue Beyoncé Portrait Heading to Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

August 21, 2019

A striking portrait of Beyoncé, shot by the rising photographer Tyler Mitchell for Vogue’s all-important September issue last year, is on its way to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

Mr. Mitchell, who is the first African-American photographer and one of the youngest to shoot a cover for Vogue, announced the news online on Tuesday.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open,” Mr. Mitchell said on Instagram. “Since then it was important to spend the whole year running through them making sure every piece of the gate was knocked down. And now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into” the museum.

Concetta Duncan, a spokeswoman for the museum, confirmed the acquisition, but said the piece would not be on permanent display. It’s under discussion as to when the photograph will go on view, she said.

“We are delighted to acquire this magnificent portrait of Beyoncé,” Leslie Ureña, associate curator of photographs for the museum, said in a statement. “This particular work brought us closer to Beyoncé’s words, appearing within the magazine’s pages, and showing us more of the historic shoot.”

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.)

Recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift" was documented!

July 24, 2019

Ali Baruck revealed on Instagram that she documented the recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift":

"The Lion King: The Gift. What an incredible project to be a part of. I had listened to Afrobeat before, but never experienced it on this level. Over the past few months, some of Africans finest talents flew from Nigeria, London, Ghana, South Africa and Cameroon to the LA studio to create beats, lyrics, chants, records...magic. The rooms beamed with creativity and a deep love for music and African culture. We were there til the early hours of the morning every night. Everyone shared their talents, culture, love for their homeland, we ordered authentic Nigerian food for dinner. The studio became a little family. It was all love ❤️ Meeting these artists was so amazing and seeing their process of making music was an unforgettable experience. All of these records are truly authentic to Africa, which was the first and most important thing the incredible A&R team stressed to everyone involved. It truly is a love letter to Africa ❤️🌍 I had the opportunity to document it 🎥

If you haven’t already, give The Lion King: The Gift a listen ✨a lot of hard work went into making it. Big congrats to everyone involved.

"The Lion King" Rules With $185 Million Debut

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.

Disney Announces Beyonce-Produced 'The Lion King: The Gift' Album

July 10, 2019

Walt Disney announced on Tuesday (July 9) that Beyonce will be curating and producing a new album, The Lion King: The Gift. The album and the film's soundtrack will also include new Bey song called “Spirit.”

The album will feature a number of global recording artists and "steeped in the sounds of Africa," according to the announcement on Instagram.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said of the record in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

The Lion King: The Gift is out July 19, along with the live-action film, which features Bey as Nala.

Beyoncé will join Jay Z on Friday in Ohio at a get-out-the-vote concert for Hillary Clinton, a source who overheard the news told CBS News.

Clinton will be joined by the music superstars at a rally at Cleveland State University heading into the final weekend before Election Day. The Clinton campaign is making an aggressive push to urge Ohioans to vote early.

Jay Z’s appearance had already been announced.

But the addition of his wife Beyoncé, one of the biggest entertainers in the world, adds even more star power to the Cleveland event.

The concert is aimed at millennials and African-American voters in the Democratic stronghold of Cuyahoga County, where Clinton needs big margins on election night to defeat Donald Trump, who is leading the polls in Ohio.

The music megastars are among several acts -- including Katy Perry, The National and John Legend -- helping Clinton make a final appeal to young voters.

The Clinton campaign declined to comment on the appearance.
The Country Music Association has responded to allegations that they deleted footage and mentions of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks‘ 2016 CMA Awards performance.

An outcry from fans began Thursday afternoon (Nov. 3), after some began to notice and share on social media that social media mentions and CMA website video of the two acts’ performance of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons” at Wednesday night’s (Nov. 2) 50th anniversary CMA Awards ceremony had been deleted. TMZ alleged that the deletions were due to racist and rude comments being posted, but the CMA says that the footage was removed at Beyonce’s request.

“Beyonce’s team hadn’t approved that, so we pulled it down,” CMA CEO Sarah Trahern tells the New York Times of a now-deleted promotional clip that teased Beyonce’s performance, adding that the clip was removed before the performance itself. “Fans can get kind of passionate and read other things into it.”

Additionally, Trahern explains, Beyonce provided her own photographer for the evening and only approved one official live video of the song, which is available on ABC.com and has been shared on the CMA’s social media channels.

“CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce’s performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA’s Facebook page. The promo was unapproved, and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast,” the CMA says in a statement to People, echoing Trahern’s comments. “Beyonce’s performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening, and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels.” Read more...
There are numerous music legends slated to perform at the 2016 CMA Awards, and now it appears to be official — Queen Bey will be hitting the stage.

Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that Beyoncé is currently in Nashville, which just happens to be where the CMAs will be airing from live tonight on ABC, and CMT reports that the star is set to perform at the show.

The Lemonade creator is not known as a country singer, but she wouldn’t be the first recording artists to cross genre lines at the CMAs. Justin Timberlake hit the stage with country star Chris Stapleton at the 2015 awards to perform their tracks “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”

But what will Beyoncé perform?

A duet with one of the previously announced performers — of which there are many — is not out of the question. Or Queen Bey could do a solo performance of one of her originals. (Lemonade‘s country-twinged “Daddy Lessons”?) Or even a cover of a country classic.

If her recent Video Music Award performance is any indication, whatever Beyoncé would perform would be guaranteed to be what everyone is talking about tomorrow.

The 2016 CMAs airs live tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
It seems that Laverne Cox won herself more than a few admirers after channelling Beyonce on Lip Sync Battle – including the lady herself.

In fact, Beyonce was so impressed by the Orange Is The New Black’s star’s tribute to her on the Spike show that she even sent her flowers to show her appreciation.

Which a clearly thrilled Laverne didn’t hesitate to show off on social media.

She wrote on Instagram: "When you are at work on #Doubt your new cbs legal drama premiering in 2017 and get flowers and a hand written card from the Queen Bey herself @beyonce. Thank you Beyonce for such a thoughtful gesture. You didn't have to but it means so much that you did. I am so happy you enjoyed the #LipSyncBattle tribute to Destiny's Child.

At first, Richard Gordon didn't believe it.

Free tickets to Thursday's Beyoncé concert for some of the hardworking students at Robeson High, where he is principal?

"It sounded too good to be true. It wasn't. It's amazing," said Gordon, whose West Philadelphia public school enrolls 300 students.

In fact, the entertainment company Live Nation gave the Philadelphia School District enough tickets to allow 68 high schools to send a number of deserving teens.

How many tickets?

"A lot," spokesman Kevin Geary said.

Principals were given the tickets to distribute as they saw fit to seniors - Gordon chose honor students and English-language learners who had made great strides.

The giveaway has been in the works for months, but "it's not something that they wanted to publicize," Geary said. Read more...
Joining celebrity investors like Snoop Dogg, Ashton Kutcher, and Justin Bieber, Queen Bey is bringing her supreme business skills to the tech world. Beyoncé and the management company she started called Parkwood Entertainment have invested $150,000 into Sidestep, an app for buying concert merchandise and skipping the line to pick it up at the show.

Sidestep originally started selling t-shirts and posters for Beyoncé on her Formation World Tour. But after two weeks of seeing its success, Beyoncé and Parkwood invested in Sidestep’s seed round of funding.

Sidestep CEO Eric Jones tells me they “wanted Beyoncé’s tour to be very focused on tech”, and liked the idea of “a tiny scrappy startup doing the biggest tour in the world.”

Beyoncé previously invested in WTRMLN WTR, a watermelon beverage company, and is believed to have ties to juicing machine maker Juicero. With her investment in Sidestep, though, she could directly help artists earn more money. Read more...
UTSA students enrolled in a new English course titled "Black Women, Beyoncé & Popular Culture" are delving into a raw, semester-long analysis of the singer's 2016 audiovisual project, "Lemonade," and its relativity to "black feminism."

In her course description, Professor Kinitra Brooks refers to Beyoncé's latest work as a "movement" and "meditation on contemporary black womanhood," which she chose to base her lessons on this fall.

The class meets three times a week and is sectioned into themes based off the album's tracks, kicking off with "Formation" and ending in December with "All Night."

"The purpose of this class is to explore the theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism," Brooks explained in the class syllabus.

Though the idea of analyzing one of 2016's most popular releases is interesting many Roadrunners, Brooks warns students via the class syllabus that the curriculum, worth 3 credit hours, will force them to work harder "than ever before," as she will not "sugarcoat" her tone but will provoke thoughts outside of their comfort zones.
