Beyonce Didn't Have Time to Finish Barbra Streisand Duet

Klaudia//September 19, 2014
Barbra Streisand's new album of duets only includes male singers, but it wasn't a conscious effort to exclude females.

"Everyone we asked was...busy," Streisand said. The performer almost scored one major diva: Beyonce.

"She had her people try to do a track of one of the songs from my movie, 'A Star is Born,' and it just, we didn't have the time to finish it, to get it right," she said. "We had to release the album. Maybe someday we'll do a duet because she's so great."

"Partners," released Tuesday, features Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, John Legend and Babyface, who produced the album.

Jay Z And Beyonce Could Be Releasing A Joint Album

Klaudia//September 17, 2014
We don’t want to get you too excited just yet. But yes, there are rumors floating around, which claim the dynamic duo is planning to drop a joint album.

Jay Z and Beyoncé literally just wrapped their On the Run Tour with a blowout show in Paris (Nicki Minaj knows it was ‘Flawless’) and here come the reports that they’ve been secretly working on a joint project. The next confirmed item on their schedule is the debut of their On the Run Tour special on HBO, September 20, but is it really possible that an album will also be arriving soon?

DJ Skee was the first to publicly put this out into the world, announcing on-air during his Dash radio show that he had “confirmed and talked with a couple sources,” who say the project would be released in late 2014 or early 2015.

According to E!, Karli Henriquez, Vice President of Pop Programming at Dash Radio has gone on record to say that the power couple will definitely be putting out this “huge” album.

On Jay Z’s 2013 album Magna Carta Holy Grail, he and Beyoncé teamed up for “Part II (On the Run)” and on Beyoncé’s self-titled release later that year, they gave us the monster hit “Drunk in Love.” Obviously, we’ll take some more Hov and Bey if it comes our way.

MTV News has reached out to a Jay Z rep to confirm this news, but there has been no comment as of press time.

Beyonce & Jay Z Sell Out On The Run Tour

Klaudia//September 5, 2014
Beyonce and Jay Z land atop the Billboard Hot Tours chart, having wrapped the North American leg of their On the Run tour that played stadiums in 16 markets during a six-week span in the summer. Box office grosses totaled $96 million from ticket sales reported by tour promoter Live Nation for 19 sold-out performances during the summertime trek that kicked off June 25 in Florida and wrapped Aug. 6 in California.

The co-headlining couple booked two-show engagements in three markets on the schedule: New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The New York/New Jersey metropolitan area hosted the tour on July 11 and 12 with an attendance count of 89,165 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. With ticket sales totaling $11.5 million, the New Jersey venue was the top-grossing stadium during the tour's U.S. and Canadian run. Los Angeles-area fans saw the tour at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena with performances on Aug. 2 and 3. Jay Z and Beyoncé performed for 96,994 fans at the historic Southern California football venue, grossing $10.9 million. The final stadium during the summer run was AT&T Park, home of Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants. The Bay Area generated $8.8 million in ticket sales from 73,020 seats for sellouts on Aug. 5 and 6. Jay and Bey will cross the pond for the tour's final engagement, a two-night stand in Paris on Sept. 12 and 13. The two concerts will occur at Stade de France and will be taped by HBO for broadcast on Sept. 20.

Beyoncé Leads Post-VMA Sales Gains

Klaudia//August 29, 2014
As the post-MTV VMA numbers show, performing on a big award show is not just fun and exciting, it usually means big bucks for artists. Every single one of the artists that took to the stage saw their songs and albums work their way up the iTunes charts immediately following the show, some with numbers so high it’s hard to believe there was that much more room to grow.

It goes without question that Beyoncé stole the show, as she typically does. The singer performed a medley of songs from her self-titled album that she dropped without advance warning this past December. Once she finished, husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy (who had possibly the second biggest moment of the show when she adorably congratulated her mother) presented her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the highest honor the VMA can bestow.

Having not only the most screen time but perhaps the best performance, Beyoncé saw some of the biggest gains in sales after the show. Her Beyoncé album rose from #40 to #7 on iTunes, increasing in sales by more than 1,400%. It is worth noting that the album was released in December, where it immediately went to number one, and has continued to sell ever since, so rising in sales over 1,000% is a feat not to be underestimated.

On top of that, every song she performed—if only for one verse or for less than a minute—also saw impressive gains. In order of how much each track grew in sales, here are her tracks: “XO” (up 1,648%), “Flawless” (up 1,237%), “Rocket” (up 584%), “Partition” (up 390%), “Pretty Hurts” (up 332%), and “Drunk In Love” (up 324%).

MTV Video Music Awards 2014

Klaudia//August 25, 2014
Last night Beyonce attended the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California. The singer closed the show with a nearly 20-minute medley of all the songs from her new album. Right after the performance, Jay-Z appeared onstage with Blue Ivy to present her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Beyonce also won three other awards: Best Collaboration ("Drunk in Love"), Best Video with a Social Message ("Pretty Hurts") and Best Cinematography ("Pretty Hurts"). Congratulations!






Beyoncé Wax Figure in Regent's Park

Klaudia//August 21, 2014
Passers-by in Regent’s Park were treated to a VIP ‘festival’ scene yesterday morning as Madame Tussauds unveiled the staggeringly realistic new wax figure of international superstar Beyoncé to a small gathering of fans. The figure will make a guest appearance in London this summer before taking up residence in Madame Tussauds San Francisco later this year.

The world-renowned singer was revealed in her iconic hand-on-hip stage pose, dressed in an intricately embellished gold structured leotard inspired by her ‘Mrs Carter Show World Tour’. The striking figure is performance ready, holding a microphone by her side – perfect for fans to ‘step into’ the scene and join her for a selfie.

“We’re delighted to welcome this brand new figure of megastar Beyoncé to the attraction this summer”, commented Matthew Clarkson, Madame Tussauds' Marketing Manager. “With her current ‘On The Run’ tour delighting fans around the world, we thought it was the right time to have a special visit from the Queen of Pop. We’re sure that her fans will love getting up close to their idol, and won’t want to miss the chance to see her before she jets off to Madame Tussauds San Francisco this Autumn.”

Fans will have the chance to meet the new Beyoncé figure and pose for ‘selfies’ from today until the Autumn, when she will move to Madame Tussauds San Francisco. In London, Beyoncé will join a host of female superstars in the Baker Street attraction’s Music area, including Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Kylie.

Beyoncé to perform and collect Vanguard Award at MTV VMAs

Klaudia//August 7, 2014
All hail Queen Bey! As suspected, Beyonce will play a major role in this year's MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 24. The "Flawless" superstar is set to be honored with the 2014 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the network revealed on Thursday, Aug. 7.

"Over the course of MTV history, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award has been presented to exemplary musicians who have made an incredible and long-lasting impact on pop culture," an announcement on MTV's website read. "When it came time to choose the 2014 VMA recipient, one particular name stood out above the rest—global entertainer, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Beyonce."

Bey joins an exclusive list of past recipients including Madonna, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Michael Jackson himself, who won the honor in 1988. She's up for eight other awards, too, including Video of the Year, Best Female Video, and Best Choreography.

Blue Ivy's mom is also set to take the stage to perform at the 2014 MTV VMAs, which will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. This will be her fourth time performing at the event; she previously stole the show in 2006, 2009, and 2011.

Jay Z & Beyonce's On The Run Tour Tops $100 Million

Klaudia//August 5, 2014
Jay Z and Beyonce's On The Run tour wraps in North America with two nights at AT&T Park in San Francisco, both tonight (August 5) and tomorrow night (August 6). The pair's 19 North American shows will gross over $100 million in ticket sales and has sold at more than 90 percent capacity, according to Omar Al-Joulani, vp of North American touring for Live Nation, the promoter/producer of the tour. Attendance will top out at more than 850,000.

Al-Joulani declined to comment on press reports of rancor between the couple, adding that he hadn’t read it. Regarding such reports, and speculation that Live Nation might be losing money on the tour, Al-Joulani would only say, “everybody’s winning.” And regarding reports that the plug might be pulled on the tour, the promoter adds, “Production is loading-in in San Francisco as we speak.”

Some reports put the couple's performance guarantee at $4 million per show, which is a reasonable figure, considering the tour's nightly take is over $5.2 million from an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show. As predicted by Billboard back in June -- when inaccurate reports that the tour was struggling began to surface -- sales for the tour finished strong, following a general market trend of tickets selling closer to show date. “These shows sold tremendously well at the end, so we were able to sell-up limited-view and clean up production holds or other holds,” says Al-Joulani. “It was a very successful tour, and we’re pleased to have that big gross number at the end.”

The Jay/Bey tour was conceived and launched fast compared to most stadium tours, which are often planned more than a year in advance. “It came together quite quickly, around mid-March,” says Al-Joulani. “By April, we had everything together, and once the routing was in place we had about three weeks until the tour was announced.”

Beyonce Releasing "Flawless" Remix Featuring Nicki Minaj?

Klaudia//July 31, 2014
Nicki Minaj had the entire internet extra thirsty earlier this week when she dropped off the bootyfull single art for her upcoming record "Anaconda", which was originally due out July 28th. Unfortunately, Nicki had a slight delay in plans and decided to push back the release date until August 4th, and explained we "will understand why before the week is out."

Well, rumors are circulating that the reason Nicki pushed back the release date was because Beyonce is about to drop off a new remix featuring the female YMCMB rapper. According to HipHopWired, a music industry source says Nicki pushed her single back in order to avoid it getting lost in the sure to be excitement of a new track with Beyonce.

The rumored remix is for Beyonce’s song “Flawless”, and will feature a verse from Nicki Minaj. But better yet, MissInfo reports that its possible we hear Beyonce rapping her verse on this remix, and not singing it. So could we be seeing both Nicki and Beyonce delivering bars on one track soon?

Hopefully these rumors are true, and we won’t have to wait too much long to hear the end result!
