Jay-Z explains sitting during National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV

February 6, 2020

Jay-Z has a message for all those who believed he and his wife Beyoncé were engaging in a silent protest at this year's Super Bowl: "It actually wasn't. Sorry."

The couple received some criticism after TMZ posted video showing them and their 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy sitting while Demi Lovato performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl LIV.

On Tuesday TMZ posted video of Jay-Z addressing what happened during an appearance at Columbia University in New York City.

According to the mogul, the whole thing "was not premeditated at all," but was instead a case of him doing his job given that his Roc Nation corporation has a partnership with the NFL which includes producing the Super Bowl halftime show and other major performances.

He said his wife, who was a featured performer at the Super Bowl in 2013 and 2016, was offering him some insight about the experience and they were seated from the time Yolanda Adams sang "America the Beautiful" before Lovato sang the National Anthem.

Beyoncé releases statement about signing with Sony/ATV

January 22, 2020

Beyoncé and Sony/ATV Music Publishing have signed a global agreement covering her entire song catalog.

The deal includes hits from Destiny’s Child, through to her collection of solo works written throughout her career.

The agreement with the publishing company reunites the artist with long-term ally Jon Platt, who joined Sony/ATV as Chairman and CEO last year.

“I am excited for what’s to come with my continued partnership with Jon Platt in his new leadership role at Sony/ATV,” said Beyoncé.

“Jon’s the executive who understands the creative mindset and continues to be both an advocate and protector. It has been an honor working with Jon from the start of my career.”

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt, added: “Beyond all of her well-deserved accolades and accomplishments, Beyoncé is simply one of the most driven and impactful talents I know.

“I’ve had the privilege of making incredible music with her throughout her career and she continues to set the bar for creative expression in all forms.

“Beyoncé inspires generations with her songs and I am honored to reunite with her at Sony/ATV.”

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 and Jay-Z send Reese Witherspoon a case of champagne

January 11, 2020

Reese Witherspoon can raise a toast this weekend with some high-end bubbly thanks to Beyoncé, Jay-Z and a little bit of courage.

"I just got home from New York and the most beautiful flowers are here and a case of Ace of Spades champagne," Witherspoon shared on her Instagram Stories. A note with the gift read, "More water from Jay & Bey."

It started with an encounter at last Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony when Witherspoon's table ran out of water. She thought it was only natural to ask the "Drunk in Love" couple for a champagne refill — and her bold move paid off.

The couple surprised the actress with a case of Armand de Brignac "Ace of Spades" champagne. Jay-Z has owned the luxury brand since 2014.

"It's 11:30. We're drinking champagne," Witherspoon said as she popped open a gold bottle with her mom, Betty, who asked whether it was too early to drink.

"Who cares? It's from Jay-Z and Beyoncé," the actress responded.

Beyoncé Leads Music Nominees Slate for 2020 NAACP Image Awards

Following the announcement of their industry-shifting global partnership in the spring of 2019, adidas and Beyoncé proudly introduce the first adidas x IVY PARK collection, available in stores and online January 18, 2020.

Beyoncé, one of the most celebrated visionaries of our time, has united with adidas, to design a collection that combines fashion and storytelling in an unprecedented way. This unique relationship champions the values of inclusivity, community and diversity and will take consumers on an unconventional journey starting with this capsule collection for Spring '20. The partnership respects Beyoncé's ownership of IVY PARK, and continues her journey as one of the first black women to be the sole owner of an athleisure brand.

"It is a dream come true to re-launch IVY PARK as the sole owner," said Beyoncé. "My team has worked hard with the adidas team in bringing my vision to life for this first collection and I am grateful and proud. From the accessories to the clothes and footwear, I wanted to design and re-imagine pieces that serve as favorite armor for anyone who acknowledges the strength in their individual style and lives freely and boldly."

Featuring the first-ever release of IVY PARK footwear and a powerful array of stylish and functional performance gear that includes gender-neutral apparel and accessories, the launch capsule collection of adidas x IVY PARK celebrates power, freedom and individuality for anyone who has the confidence to take chances and live unapologetically.

Beyonce NOT Performing In Ghana Despite Rumors

December 28, 2019

For fans hopeful for a Beyonce performance this weekend in Ghana, it’s bad news.

Because, it’s official: Queen Bey will not be taking to the stage.

For months, rumors have swirled about the superstar songstress performing during Year of the Return festivities in Accra. Which, for those not in the know, is an initiative to draw Black folk in the Western world and beyond back to the continent in recognition of it being 400 years since the first slave arrived in Virginia.

And the speculation intensified when Bey dropped Afrobeats-inspired project ‘The Gift’ – featuring many artists from the diaspora.

With many of said acts congregating this weekend at the AfroNation festival in Accra, anticipation for Bey reached fever pitch.

However, her longtime publicist has concretely denied any such showing:

Beyoncé hits karaoke bash in LA with mom Tina

December 18, 2019

Beyoncé — along with her mom, Tina Knowles, and guests including Kim Kardashian — attended a karaoke bash thrown by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and her sister Ofira Sandberg at LA hot spot Blind Dragon this week.

“Beyoncé was dancing on a couch while her mom did a rendition of Chaka Khan’s ‘I Feel for You,’ ” said a spy.

We’re told other singers included DJ Cassidy — who took the stage to perform Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” only to be joined by the rapper himself. Tiffany Haddish grabbed the mike to sing “Proud Mary,” and the evening ended with Schwartz and Sandberg belting out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” — which we’re told had Beyoncé and other party guests dancing and singing along.


Beyoncé Is One Step Closer to Earning Her First Oscars Nomination

December 17, 2019

After accruing a whopping 23 Grammy Awards, Beyoncé is one step closer to adding an Oscar win to her list.

According to a press release from The Academy, the 300-member music brand chose 15 songs from 75 entered. The list will be trimmed down to five when voting for the nominations begins Jan. 2. Nominees will be announced Jan. 13.

Beyoncé to release two collections with Adidas

December 11, 2019

Collaboration is a needle-mover, and Adidas is positioned to generate buzz next year with a robust lineup of product with key partners.

Last week at the brand’s New York City showroom and office, Adidas North America president Zion Armstrong provided details to FN about the collections that are in the pipeline for 2020 — which includes its debut work with Beyoncé. (Adidas announced the partnership with Beyoncé and her Ivy Park brand in April.)

“In terms of range, there are two collections. There is Beyoncé and Adidas and then there’s Ivy Park,” Armstrong explained to FN. “And this is not just athleisure product. We have performance product. She is a phenomenal creator athlete and is helping us push the envelope in performance product with materials and fit.”

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 is set to reveal the fruits of her Flint fund-raising effort — and unveil plans for a charitable Detroit initiative.

The singer’s team will hold a Monday media event in Detroit to announce the total raised for crisis-stricken Flint during her Formation World Tour, which will wrap up its first U.S. leg with a Ford Field show on Tuesday.

Ticket buyers on the 23-city run were directed to the fund-raising site CrowdRise.com, where they could make donations and enter into a random drawing for seat upgrades. Contributions benefit the United Way of Genesee County and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, earmarked to help residents affected by the city's water crisis.

“Beyoncé is a woman who is always touched with compassion to not only help people, but to use her platform to engage others to help as well,” said Ivy McGregor, who runs the BeyGood Foundation as part of the singer’s Parkwood Entertainment.

Monday's announcement follows through on a promise to aid Flint, made when Beyoncé's tour was announced during February's Super Bowl.

“Flint residents represent us all,” McGregor said. “They represent the tour family, Parkwood, all of us. They’re everyday people that faced issues and circumstances that could happen in our backyards.” Read more...

A Beyonce concert taking place on the newly-inaugurated ‘Beyonce Day’ in Minneapolis had to be delayed for 45 minutes last night (May 23) due to bad weather.

At 8.15pm, just 15 minutes before Beyonce was due on stage, the 35,000 fans at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis had to be evacuated to due a lightning storm over the venue.

Fans were eventually allowed in to the stadium at 9pm. At the start of the two-hour show, Beyonce announced: “Thank you for riding out the storm with me.”

Earlier the same day, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton had declared May 23 as Beyonce Day for 24 hours.

Dayton’s official proclamation for Beyonce Day stated: “Beyonce has influenced many women and young girls with powerful, positive messages in her songs.”

Read the full proclamation here.

Beyoncé will bring her “Formation World Tour” to St. Louis with a show on Sept. 10 at the Dome at America’s Center.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 23 at livenation.com, Ticketmaster outlets and by calling 800-745-3000.

Tickets are $48-$283.

Beyhive members will have an opportunity to purchase advance tickets starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday. American Express card members can purchase before the general public tickets at 10 a.m. Thursday through 5 p.m. Sunday.
Citing demand, Live Nation and Parkwood Entertainment have added an additional seven shows to the North American leg of Beyonce's Formation stadium tour. The new shows, as well as the makeup date of the postponed May 5 Nashville show (now on Oct. 2), will follow the European leg of the tour.

Among the added shows is a third New York area performance, set for Sept. 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Also new to the mix is a second L.A. gig at Dodger Stadium on Sept. 14. Second shows have been added in Santa Clara, Calif., Houston, Atlanta, and Philadelphia, and promoter Live Nation's Global Touring division has also plugged in a show for New Orleans on Sept. 24.

Formation is emerging as one of the biggest tours of 2016, and appears headed toward a total Boxscore that will top $200 million, Billboard estimates. Beyonce has developed into one of the elite touring acts in the world. Her Mrs. Carter World Tour of 2013-2014 grossed $212 million from attendance of nearly 2 million to 126 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. Following that tour, Beyonce embarked on the On The Run co-headlining stadium run with her husband, Jay Z, which grossed $96 million, from 832,769 tickets sold to just 19 shows in North America.

Tickets for all performances go on sale May 13. Pre-sale starts today at 10:00 AM on Ticketmaster.

Newly Added Dates:

Sept. 7: E. Rutherford, NJ (MetLife Stadium)
Sept. 14: Los Angeles, CA (Dodger Stadium)
Sept. 17: Santa Clara, CA (Levi’s Stadium)
Sept. 22: Houston, TX (NRG Stadium)
Sept. 24: New Orleans, LA (Mercedes Benz Superdome)
Sept. 26: Atlanta, GA (Georgia Dome)
Sept. 29: Philadelphia (Lincoln Financial Field)
Oct. 2: Nashville (Nissan Stadium) — rescheduled from May 5
As reports last week suggested she might, Beyonce has now rescheduled her Formation World Tour stop in Nashville, Tennessee, for a date later this year.

The concert was scheduled to take place Thursday at Nissan Stadium, but will now be held Oct. 7 at the same venue. The reasoning behind the date's rescheduling is unclear at this moment.

The stadium tour kicked off April 27 in Miami, followed by nights in Tampa, Florida, Atlanta and Raleigh, North Carolina. With Thursday's event now rescheduled, the shows pick up again on Saturday in Beyonce's hometown of Houston, Texas, and will run steadily to August.

On Twitter, the Nissan Stadium replied to a story posted by TMZ that it "was ready and able to host the May 5 Beyoncé show" and looks forward to the rescheduled event.
Queen Bey took on Mother Nature and lost — temporarily.

Beyoncé — one of a handful of stars who didn’t cancel a North Carolina show to protest a new anti-LGBT law — was forced to momentarily suspend her Raleigh show due to lightning.

The pop star was performing her latest concert in her "Formation" world tour date in the state’s capital Tuesday night when lightning struck an hour into the show, Beyoncé’s official Twitter account said.

Fans were evacuated for a little over an hour at around 10 p.m.

To fans' delight, the “Single Ladies” singer returned to the stage by 11:30 p.m.

"Thank y'all so much! The show is not over!" she told concert-goers who had eagerly waited for her return.

Earlier, the Beyhive swarmed Twitter, proclaiming that rain wouldn’t keep them from seeing the hit maker at North Carolina's State University's Carter-Finley Stadium.

“We are here rain or shine,” tweeted one loyal follower.

The concert was plagued from the onset by severe weather, as others tweeted about intense traffic leading to the show.

The mom-of-one even braved the rain before the suspension, with social media videos showing her performing in the rain at the outdoor venue.

The near-cancellation comes on the heels of Beyoncé postponing her Nashville concert and blaming construction on the stadium for the rescheduling last week.

As previously reported, Beyonce's Lemonade soars onto the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated May 14), taking the No. 1 spot with 653,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. The set also crowns the sales-based Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, with 485,000 in pure album sales, granting the superstar her sixth No. 1 on both charts.

The release of the album additionally spurs all 12 of its tracks to debut on the Billboard Hot 100, while all 12 also appear on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (with 11 debuting), powered by mostly by sales and streams.

With her Hot 100 entrances, Beyonce makes history: it's the first time that a female act has charted 12 or more songs on the Hot 100 at the same time, surpassing Taylor Swift's previous record of 11 (set on Nov. 13, 2010, sparked by the release of her album Speak Now). On Dec. 5, 2015, Justin Bieber bested Drake and the Beatles for the one-week record among all acts: 17 songs on the Hot 100 simultaneously, as his album Purpose debuted atop the Billboard 200.

"Formation," originally released Feb. 6 preceding her Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show performance of the track the following day, leads her parade of debuts with points stemming from 174,000 in digital sales (the most of any of the album's tracks) and 6.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 28. While "Formation" charts on the Hot 100 for the first time, it re-enters the 50-position Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 6; it had previously peaked at No. 33 (March 19) based only on its performance at radio.

Of the newly released Lemonade songs (i.e., all except "Formation"), "Sorry" was streamed the most in the tracking week, logging 14.2 million U.S. streams, while "Hold Up" racked up the highest sales: 123,000 downloads in its first week. The sultry "6 Inch," featuring The Weeknd, starts with the third-highest weekly domestic streams (12.2 million) and sales (99,000).

Here's a look, song by song, at Beyonce's dozen tracks apiece on the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: Read more...
Capping the Billboard Hot 100's top 10, Beyonce blasts onto the chart at No. 10 with "Formation." The song, from her album Lemonade, which roars onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1, is her 16th solo Hot 100 top 10 and first since "Drunk in Love," featuring Jay Z, which reached No. 2 in February 2014. (Beyonce has also notched 10 top 10s as part of Destiny's Child.)

"Formation" bows with roughly two-thirds of its Hot 100 points from sales, as it starts at No. 3 on Digital Songs with 174,000 sold, having gone on sale April 25. It also enters Streaming Songs at No. 43 (6.5 million) with almost all its streaming points from Tidal, which holds exclusive streaming rights to Lemonade. (A nominal portion of streaming points is from user-generated clips featuring the song's official audio.)

"Formation," which also re-enters Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at a new high of No. 6, had bubbled under the Hot 100 and rose to No. 33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in March, driven by airplay, when it was not available for purchase (and Tidal did not report the song's streaming totals to Nielsen; none of its streams prior to April 23 were reported by Tidal to Nielsen). The track first made waves in early February, as Beyonce performed it live during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show (Feb. 7).
Hits Daily Double reported today that Columbia (Beyonce’s label) is sending ‘Sorry’ to Rhythm radio later this week, which could signal it being the first official single to be taken from the album.

Lemonade was originally released just over a week ago (April 23) after Beyonce premiered her short movie, of the same name, on cable network HBO. After the movie came to a close, Beyonce dropped the album as a TIDAL exclusive.

Less than 48 hours later, the album was in demand that much that Beyonce and her team decided to release the album to retailers such as iTunes an Amazon. However, Tidal has confirmed to Unreality TV that Lemonade will continue to stream on Tidal in “perpetuity”.

When the album was originally released, it was thought that ‘6 Inch’ featuring The Weeknd would be lifted as the first official single from the album, but it looks like Beyonce wanted to see how the album perfomed before making anything official.
Beyonce’s Lemonade album charges in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving the superstar her sixth chart-topper. The set earned 653,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 28, according to Nielsen Music. Pure album sales comprised 485,000 of that sum. (Lemonade's total unit figure was updated in this story at 12:29 p.m. PT.)

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new May 14-dated chart (where Lemonade is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, May 3.

Lemonade was introduced on April 23 through its same-titled film, which was soundtracked by the album’s songs, and premiered on HBO. The 12-song visual album was released by Parkwood/Columbia Records following the film’s debut, initially exclusively through Tidal. By Monday, April 25, the album -- which is bundled with the film -- went on sale through other digital retailers, but Tidal remains the only service with streaming rights to the set. A physical version of the album will be released on May 6.

Lemonade scores the biggest week of any album in 2016, both in terms of overall units and in sales.

All six of Beyonce’s studio albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Lemonade follows her self-titled album in 2013, 4 (2011), I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), B’Day (2006) and Dangerously In Love (2003). Beyonce is the only act to reach No. 1 with their first six studio efforts (and the only act to debut atop the list with their first six).

In addition to her six No. 1s, Beyonce has charted four further albums on the tally: Live at Wembley (No. 17 in 2004), Irremplazable EP (No. 109 in 2007), Above and Beyonce: Video Collection (No. 35 in 2009) and Beyonce: More Only EP (No. 8 in 2014).
Beyoncé will reschedule her May 5 show at Nashville's Nissan Stadium, according to the show's promoter.

Live Nation announced the news in a statement Friday. The statement did not give a reason for the delay, and a spokesman declined to discuss the reason for the postponement.

"Details about the rescheduled date will be announced shortly and Nashville tickets holders are advised to retain their tickets which will be honored at the rescheduled event," Live Nation said in the statement.

The music superstar kicked off The Formation World Tour Wednesday in Miami, days after the surprise release of her sixth album "Lemonade." The Nashville show was scheduled to be the fifth stop of her tour.

Other shows next week in Atlanta and Raleigh will go on as scheduled, Live Nation said, and Beyoncé still performed in Tampa Friday night. The Nashville show does not appear to have sold out, unlike concerts scheduled in other cities.
The sudden release of Beyoncé's Lemonade (Columbia) prevented a possible top 5 Prince takeover on the new U.K. album chart, announced Friday (April 29). Drake's “One Dance” (Cash Money/ Republic/ Universal), featuring Wizkid & Kyla, starts a third week atop the singles chart, on which Prince has six titles in the top 100.

Early-week sales flashes from the Official Charts Company showed Prince albums holding down the entire top 5 after his death on Apr. 21. But Lemonade overtook The Very Best Of Prince (Warner Bros.) with opening sales of 73,000, including 10,000 equivalent sales via streaming -- 14 percent of its total. That's the biggest percentage since streaming data became part of chart methodology last year. It's Beyoncé's third U.K. No. 1 album.

No fewer than six tracks from Lemonade became top 40 hits, with “Hold Up” leading the way at No. 17, then “Formation” (No. 31), “Sorry” (No. 33), “6 Inch” (35), “Don't Hurt Yourself” (36) and “Freedom” (40).
