BeyGOOD Provides Thanksgiving Turkeys to 250 Families

Klaudia//November 22, 2014
Thanksgiving marks the kick off of holiday season. Many of us are fortunate enough to associate the holidays with an over abundance of food and gifts, not every family is so lucky.

Infused with the giving spirit, BeyGOOD made the dedication to support two organizations that provided outreach to more than 150 families in three shelters in the Bronx, New York, and nearly 80 families through a community hospital in Harlem, New York.

Initially, we set out on the journey to provide turkeys with our own budget in mind, but as absolute proof that doing good inspires others to do good, John and Ruth Brown stepped up to the plate and personally committed to donating turkeys.

We first met John and Ruth in Las Vegas last year during the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. They had BeyGOOD stickers on so they were upgraded to the BeyStage. They asked to stay in touch so they could continue to carry the message of BeyGOOD and a year later they absolutely embodied the heart of real BeyGOOD Ambassadors! As the General Manager of a meat company, John and his wife Ruth committed to personally covering the cost of paying for half of the turkeys. After being inspired by John and Ruth, John’s boss, Ed, and a fellow meat distributor, also committed to donating turkeys because being GOOD inspires everyone!

Thanks to their giving spirits, and the spirit of BeyGOOD, we were able to support 250 families, assuring they would enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal.

Follow us on Twitter @BeyGOOD and share your stories of how you plan to give back and #BeyGOOD this holiday season.

Beyonce To Release New Song "7/11" To Radio Next Week

Klaudia//November 18, 2014
Beyonce may be winding down the campaign for her blockbuster fifth album, but the singer looks set to have fans wining their waists as she does so.

Why?

Because her new song ‘7/11′ is making a beeline for radio next week.

All Access Access lists the track, which is being described as similar sounding to ‘Partition’, as due to impact Urban formats on November 25th.

The radio “add” date is just one day after the ‘Platinum Edition’ of the singer’s game-changing self-titled LP struts into stores.

As reported, ‘7/11′ serves as one of two new songs featured on the beefed-up re-release (alongside ‘Ring Off’) which will also include four remixes and ten live performances from the superstar’s top-grossing ‘Mrs. Carter Show’ tour.

Beyoncé Attends Solange's Pre-Wedding Festivities in NOLA

Klaudia//November 16, 2014
Beyoncé stepped out Friday night in New Orleans to celebrate sister Solange Knowles's rumored wedding weekend.

Solange – who is engaged to music video director Alan Ferguson – is reportedly set to tie the knot this weekend, and about 50 family and friends joined the happy couple in NOLA for a pre-wedding bash at the Indywood Cinema.

Solange, 28, and Ferguson, 51, showed a film they made of how they met before playing the movie they saw on their first date: Mahogany, a '70s flick featuring Diana Ross.

"It was pretty adorable," Hayley Sampson, who owns the film house with brother Will, tells PEOPLE. "They were talking about how they met and that they bonded this film and then showed everybody the movie."

As for the bash's treats, partygoers enjoyed daiquiris from local sandwich shop Gene's Po-Boys and drinks mixed by bartenders from the nearby go-to Oxalis.


Beyonce Gets Her Own Jeopardy Category

Klaudia//November 13, 2014
After hit records, sold-out tours, and numerous awards, Beyoncé conquered the last remaining obstacle to securing pop culture immortality: Jeopardy.

Tuesday night (Nov. 11), the quiz show’s “Tournament of Champions” featured an “& Beyonce” category, with questions spanning the length of Queen Bey’s career, from Destiny’s Child through recent hit “Drunk in Love.” For any real Mrs. Carter fans (a.k.a – everyone), the questions were exceptionally easy.

The trio of contestants performed **flawlessly by correctly answering all five questions, though Arthur Chu had a slight gaffe on the $1000 clue.

With her category coronation, Beyoncé joins the ranks of artists such as Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney who have graced the Jeopardy board.

Beyonce highest paid woman in music in 2014

Klaudia//November 4, 2014
Beyonce is the highest paid woman in music in 2014, with estimated earnings of $115 million, more than double what she pulled in last year, Forbes magazine said on Tuesday.

The huge sum, most of which was from her world tour, propelled Beyonce, 33, from fourth place last year and put her firmly ahead of pop star Taylor Swift, 24, with $64 million, who jumped up one spot from last year to No. 2.

"Beyonce played 95 shows during our scoring period, bringing in an average of $2.4 million per city," said Forbes, citing data from the Pollstar trade magazine.

The R&B singer's self-titled album released last December and endorsement deals pushed her earnings up further assuring her the top spot.

Forbes compiled the list after estimating pre-tax income calculated for the 12 months from June 2013 to 2014 based on record sales, concert tickets, touring information merchandise sales and interviews with concert promoters, lawyers and managers.

It also looked at data from the Pollstar, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) and tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan.

Beyonce Performing at the MTV EMAs?

Klaudia//October 31, 2014
It looks like MTV accidentally confirmed that Beyonce is performing at the EMAs! The broadcaster just uploaded a promo video to their YouTube account with the description: “Don’t miss Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Eminem and more performing Sunday, November 9th.” It could just be a mistake but the other three artists mentioned have already been announced, so maybe they let the cat out of the bag?

If Queen Bey does take the stage, it will be the diva’s first televised performance since that mesmerizing medley at the MTV VMAs in September. And if she does appear, it’s a pretty safe bet that she’ll perform the “***Flawless” remix with Nicki Minaj — after all, the femcee is hosting the event. See the cute promo video below and a screengrab of the description here.

Unauthorized Beyoncé bio in the works

Klaudia//October 30, 2014
Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, is pleased to announce the next book by J. Randy Taraborrelli, the New York Times bestselling author of groundbreaking biographies of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, the Kennedys and most recently, the Hiltons. Scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2015 in hardcover, digital and audio editions, Taraborrelli will write the first comprehensive biography ever published of pop icon Beyoncé Knowles. Jamie Raab, President and Publisher of Grand Central Publishing, acquired world rights from Mitch Douglas of the Mitch Douglas Literary Agency. The book is currently untitled.

Based on exhaustive research by Taraborrelli, including exclusive interviews with the people in the superstar’s life who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development, the biography will explore all facets of Knowles’ life. Beginning with her career at the age of seven performing in pageant shows and talent contests and recording her first number one hit record at the age of 18 with her group, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé has become one of the most successful solo artists of her generation appearing in 2014 on the cover of Time Magazine and at the #1 spot on Forbes’ annual list of the wealthiest celebrities.

"I can't think of a more intriguing subject than Beyoncé," said Taraborrelli. "In terms of research, there's no road map to follow since this is the first major biography. Therefore, we're breaking new ground with every chapter. From Destiny's Child to solo superstardom to her marriage to Jay­‐Z, Beyoncé has lived a most incredible, inspiring life. I know my readers will enjoy her journey."

Jamie Raab said of the book, “Having written the definitive biographies of music icons Madonna, Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, Randy is the perfect biographer to write about the life and career of Beyoncé Knowles.”

Beyoncé, Topshop Team For Ath-leisure Brand

Klaudia//October 27, 2014
She's arguably Topshop’s most famous customer. Now Beyoncé is connecting further by partnering with the brand.

Beyoncé Knowles and London-based Topshop have formed a 50-50 joint venture company, Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd., to produce an athletic streetwear brand, WWD has learned. It could launch in stores and online in fall 2015 at the earliest.

The deal is expected to be unveiled by Topshop in London today.

“This not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business — a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD in an interview Sunday.

Asked how the deal came about, Green recalled: “Basically, when she was in London in February we arranged to get together. We started talking generally, about doing something together. We’ve been looking at that sector for a while. It’s something we need to be in. Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category. We started getting into proper conversation in May or June, as to how it would work. It took six or eight weeks to put a deal together. On Friday, “Beyoncé came to our office for the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle.”

Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z have been widely photographed in Paris and London over the past week or so.

“I have always loved Topshop for their fashion credentials and forward thinking,” Beyoncé said.

Beyonce Wins MOBO Award!

RoccStar Opens Up About Unused Songs For "Beyonce"

Klaudia//October 19, 2014
RoccStar is one of the hottest producers in the game right now — not to mention an aspiring artist in his own right — with placements on Chris Brown‘s X and Jennifer Lopez‘s A.K.A.. I recently interviewed the hitmaker (coming soon) about those projects and his work on Beyonce‘s game-changing visual album. He spent a week with Queen Bey and cooked up two killer tunes but they weren’t used when she veered towards a different sound.

“I was there for like 7 days with Bey,” RoccStar remembers. “ a lot of DJ Mustard type stuff, with ‘Drunk In Love’ and ‘Partition’. I’m more on the left side of things, so I don’t think I was a good fit for that project because the records I had were maybe a little too futuristic and a little too advanced.”

“I think she wanted to swing with what was happening right now,” he continues. “I respect that, I mean Beyonce is amazing. So I don’t care what decision she makes! There were two songs that were crazy, ‘Turn It On’ and ‘Legends’ but they didn’t make it on the project.” The “Confidence” rapper later played me a snippet of the former club-banger and it sounded incredible with one of Bey’s best vocals and bone-rattling beats.

Beyonce To Release 4-Disc Platinum Edition of 'Beyonce'?

Klaudia//October 16, 2014
Is Beyonce about to slay the Holiday season with a mega release? If listings for the album, on some music sites, are credible, that might just be the case.

Screen shots of a "Platinum Edition" set were captured over the weekend on sites, including iMusic, which lists the album as coming from Columbia (Records) with four discs.

No official announcement has come from Beyonce or Columbia, but the iMusic listing points to a November 24 release, which would be timely and coincide with the start of Holiday season.

In other music news, a new Beyonce track called "Donk" was registered on ASCAP. Click here to see the entry.

The Harvard Business School Report on Beyonce

Klaudia//October 11, 2014
Last month, Billboard reported that the Harvard Business School had taken a close look at the release of Beyonce's surprise, self-titled album, dropped upon an unprepared world last December. At the time of Beyonce's midnight release, Billboard covered the event in depth, talking to the people involved and getting the inside scoop. But nearly a year later, Harvard Business School has dug even deeper into what went on behind the scenes of the reveal and Billboard got an exclusive sneak peek.

Anita Elberse, professor of business administration at Harvard Business School and Stacie Smith, a former student of Professor Elberse, have co-written the final word on how Beyonce landed like a meteorite on the dinosaurs last winter with their 27-page report titled, fittingly, "Beyonce." The study -- which will be taught in Elberse’s course “Strategic Marketing in Creative Industries” in early October -- takes a bird's-eye look at the music industry's current standing and Beyonce's early career, before moving on to the juiciest bits: Beyonce's founding of her own company (Parkwood Entertainment, operated as a joint venture with Rob Stringer's Columbia Records), her role at the company (CEO, lighthouse) and the planning of her opus.

For the report, Elberse and Smith interviewed key employees at Parkwood and Columbia, as well as those at Apple and Facebook directly involved in the release of Beyonce. Here are some of the most fascinating details:

How Beyonce Holds a Meeting
“ doesn’t often sit in her office,” Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, Parkwood's general manager, told the pair. “She usually walks from one office to the other, speaking with the staff. She’ll come to my office and talk to me, or she will sit in the back and give notes on projects we are working on... She has got a really good sense of the business side, but she doesn’t like to live there always. We often laugh about how an hour into a business meeting she will get up and will start walking around. I can see it then -- that I’ve lost her, and that I have satiated the amount of business that she wants to discuss that day. I’ll usually say something like ‘Let’s stop. You are going to say "Yes," but you are not listening to me anymore.’ She knows herself, will laugh, and say ‘You are absolutely right, I am done.’ Because at the end of the day she is an artist, and her passion for art drives her.”

All-Beyonce Radio Station Replaces All-News Station in Houston

Klaudia//October 11, 2014
Beyonce's empire keeps expanding its reach: first Rutgers started a course devoted to the singer; then Harvard Business School began to study her; now, a radio station in Houston has rebranded itself as a Beyonce-only radio station.

The station's website posted a statement announcing its closure: "News92, Houston’s first FM all-news radio station aired its last broadcast Wednesday, October 8, 2014... This difficult decision is a result of sustained poor ratings performance and significant financial losses over the past three years despite the substantial financial and human resources we invested."

Radio One owns the station-formerly-known-as-News92. Yashima Azilove, who works for Radio One, discussed the station's reincarnation as Beyonce radio with local news. "In looking to make a transition, we go back to what we know," Azilove told ABC13. "We know urban radio. We're in Houston, the combination seemed like a winning one." Well, it's a win for Radio One and Beyonce at least -- 47 employees of the station were laid off.

If the new station only plays Beyonce's solo catalog, it will have five albums to choose from. Not including various bonus tracks, remixes, live versions or tracks from other artists featuring Beyonce, those records contain 63 songs, adding up to roughly 4 hours and 15 minutes of music. Of course, if the station is willing to dig into Beyonce's work with Destiny's Child, that will expand their pool of possible tunes to draw from -- Destiny's Child recorded 5 albums (if you count their Christmas album), containing 67 songs and around 4.5 hours of music.

Beyonce's last album, Beyonce, came out in December of 2013; it has sold more than 2 million copies. Her "Flawless" remix is currently No. 24 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, making it one of only two songs in the top 25 of that chart that feature a female singer.
