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.

Parkwood Entertainment's COO Steve Pamon's Interview for Billboard

October 18, 2019

Parkwood Entertainment president/COO Steve Pamon and his boss, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, lead Billboard’s annual list of the most influential executives and creatives in R&B and hip-hop.

Executives Of The Year
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
Chairman/CEO, Parkwood Entertainment
Steve Pamon
President/COO, Parkwood Entertainment

"Speaking of the Queen. She just called.” The words, spoken by Parkwood Entertainment’s head of public relations, Yvette Noel-Schure, stop Steve Pamon midsentence as he sits on a chair in the company’s midtown Manhattan offices. “Does she need me?” he asks. “No, no. She’s good. She’s good,” Noel-Schure replies. Pamon, who’s wearing a white T-shirt beneath a navy blue suit offset by a red-white-and-blue stripe on the sleeves and pant legs, relaxes into the chair and resumes speaking about his boss and their company -- that would be Beyoncé, “B,” as Pamon, 49, often calls her, and Parkwood Entertainment -- and the milestones of the 12 or so preceding months that have earned them Billboard’s 2019 R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players Executives of the Year honors.

A Trio of 'Lion King' Albums Crowd Top 10 on Soundtracks Chart

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.)

"The Lion King" Rules With $185 Million Debut

July 22, 2019

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.

Inside "The Lion King: The Gift"

July 21, 2019

Yemi Alade had a cold.

Last month, the Nigerian star, who recently passed the one-million-subscribers mark on YouTube, flew to Los Angeles to work on a project by Beyoncé. But when Alade landed, she discovered she no longer had a singing voice. “I couldn’t understand what had happened to me,” she says. “I could talk, but I couldn’t even hit the lowest key.”

Panicked, she immediately went into full recovery mode. “I went for a steaming so I could get more moisture,” Alade recalls. “I jacked up on vitamin C. I went in on lemon and ginger. I felt like an herbalist, I was going in on everything.”

When Alade hit the studio the next morning, “the excitement awoke my voice” — she could sing. As a result, she appears twice on Beyoncé‘s The Lion King: The Gift, which is both a companion album to accompany the release of a new version of Disney’s famous film from 1994 and a tribute to several strains of contemporary African pop from one of the United States’ biggest stars. Alade is joined by other Nigerian luminaries: Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Mr. Eazi, and Wizkid. Beyoncé also looked beyond Nigeria as well, recruiting Shatta Wale (Ghana), Salatiel (Cameroon), Moonchild Sanelly (South Africa), and Busiswa (also South Africa) to contribute to The Gift.

New "Lemonade" Stills

To celebrate the #nationalLEMONADEday on Saturday, Beyonce.com was updated with new stills from "Lemonade," as well as explanations of each chapter title.<br /><br /><p style="text-align:center"><b>PRAY YOU CATCH ME</b><br /><br /><i>Intuition</i><br /><br /><i>noun</i> Read more...
The 2016 Emmy Awards nominations are in, and for the 16th straight year, HBO is the top-nominated network with a total of 94 nods. And while a few music-related entities are among the potential honorees -- Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Lyon character from Fox hit Empire was one; Broadway star Audra McDonald as Billie Holliday in HBO film Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill another -- Beyonce's HBO special/"visual album" Lemonade was shut out of the major categories.

Lemonade was, however, nominated four times. First, in the category Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special; Hannah Beachler (Production Designer), Chris Britt (Art Director) and Kim Murphy (Set Decorator) are the people who stand to receive the award if the special wins against designers for Grease: Live, He Named Me Malala, the Oscars broadcast and The Wiz Live.

Second, Beyonce herself, alongside director Kahlil Joseph, are nominated in the Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special category. The duo are up against Grease: Live, the Grammy Awards broadcast, the Kennedy Center Honors broadcast and live specials from Adele and Amy Schumer. Third, editor Bill Yukich is up for Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming, against episodes of Drunk History, Conan, Key & Peele and Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver.

And finally, Lemonade as a whole has been nominated in the Outstanding Variety Special category, up against Adele Live In New York City, Amy Schumer: Live At The Apollo, The Kennedy Center Honors and The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special. The two nominations (for directing and for the special as a whole) bring Beyonce's total number of nominations to four through the years; previously she was nominated in 2013 for her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, and again in 2015 for her On The Run tour documentary alongside husband Jay Z.
After rumors swirling that Beyonce would be writing and starring in a film about Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman -- the South African woman who appeared in freak shows because of her physical features during the 1800s -- the multi-hyphenate is denying her involvement.

"Beyonce is in no way tied to this project," her rep told Billboard in a statement (Jan. 5). "This is an important story that should be told, however."

Baartman -- shown off in exhibits under the name Hottentot Venus -- was made a spectacle across Europe, particularly England and Paris for her voluptuous shape. She died in 1815 at the age of 26 -- five years after her arrival in Europe -- but did not receive a proper burial in her native South Africa until 2002.

Jack Devnarain, chairman of the South African Guild of Actors, echoed Beyonce's sentiment, telling Billboard over e-mail that Baartman's story deserves recognition.

"The story of Saartjie Baartman is a tale of torture and humiliation of a woman, womanhood in general and an entire culture indigenous to Southern Africa. As an episode in South African history, it describes the crippling damage of racism, sexism and exploitation," he said. "Baartman was paraded as a freak and brutally robbed of her humanity. Her story needs to be told."
Beyonce attended a script reading for a Parkwood Entertainment feature film in Los Angeles on Monday night. Actor Jorge Ortiz tweeted the following:

"A picture of #Beyonce & I after last night’s #FeatureFilm script reading. Elegant and a class act"

"I’m about to enter the #BeyHive. Acting in a #FeatureFilm stage reading for the one and only in just a few seconds."

"The #FeatureFilm stage reading went great tonight! We entered the #BeyHive and did her proud."

Following "This Is The End," which featured cameo appearances from Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Emma Watson and pretty much every funny actor in Hollywood -- all playing variations on themselves -- it was assumed that co-directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg would continue to play with reality in "The Interview." The comedy, which was pulled from theaters this week, is built around an entertainment interview program, "Skylark Tonight," where host Dave Skylark (James Franco) interviews a variety of celebrity guests. (During an MTV special to promote the film this summer, Franco as Skylark spoke with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea.) And when the 210-page budget for "The Interview" leaked online this month, many famous names appeared: Jay Z, Beyoncé, Brad Pitt, Neil Patrick Harris, Zooey Deschanel, Michael Vick and even Kevin Federline, among them.

But the finished film includes none of those stars in any significant capacity, if at all. (It's possible they could appear in the background or during a brief glimpse of the "Skylark Tonight" opening credits. Having seen the film twice, however, I feel comfortable saying they're absent altogether.) In fact, only three recognizable faces appear as variations on themselves in "The Interview": Rob Lowe (who reveals he's bald), Eminem (who reveals he's gay) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who reveals he likes puppies).
Seth Rogen was paid more than $8.4 million and his co-star James Franco received $6.5 million for their new film The Interview, according to a Bloomberg report, which says the figures were among a cache of sensitive documents that hackers stole from Sony Pictures Entertainment that are now being released to the press in a steady stream. The report further states that the movie, on which Rogen also served as co-director as well as one of the writers and producers, cost $44 million.

Fusion also reveals that Beyonce and Jay Z are set to cameo in the film, with each of them being paid $10,000 and given first-class plane tickets.

The Interview, a comedy in which Franco and Rogen play TV journalists who are drafted by the CIA to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, is scheduled to open Christmas Day and has been condemned by North Korean officials, who have dubbed it an "act of war."
Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande and Bruno Mars are among nominees for this year’s NAACP Image Awards, broadcasting on Saturday, February 22 at 9 p.m. on TV One.

“This has been an incredible year from the artistic community, with phenomenal contributions across the board from the music, television, motion picture, and literature genres that have the power and impact to drive social change,” said Roslyn M. Brock, NAACP chairman.

In music, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars are nominated for Outstanding Male Artist, while Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe and Mary J. Blige are included in the Outstanding Female Artist category.

Queen Bey also snagged a nod for Outstanding Documentary for Life Is But a Dream.
Congratulations to the Queen Bey!

Beyoncé’s documentary Life Is But a Dream arrives at No. 1 on the United Kingdom’s Music Video Top 40 chart this week. This makes Mrs. Carter’s first chart-topping DVD in the territory.

In the US, Life Is But a Dream enters Top Music Videos at No. 1, just ahead of two other new arrivals. This is Beyoncé's fourth No. 1 on this chart, following Live At Wembley (five weeks on top in 2004), I Am…Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas (eight weeks in 2009-2010), and I Am…World Tour (nine weeks in 2010-2011). In addition, she had a No. 1 video with Destiny's Child's Live in Atlanta (two weeks in 2006).
Just in time for the holidays, Beyonce will be releasing her documentary Life is But a Dream on DVD (November 25), and the singer previews a new song in the trailer.

The ballad "God Made You Beautiful" runs through the length of the promo and will be available to download with the DVD.

Additionally, the DVD features a bonus disc with Live In Atlantic City Concert filmed over four consecutive nights at the Revel Casino Hotel in May 2012.

Watch the trailer below and pre-order the DVD or the Blu-ray on Amazon!



Memorial day weekend was big at the box office, breaking records previously set in 2011.

According to box office receipts, $317 million was raked in over the four day weekend (including Friday and Monday), with films featuring R&B singers an actors Tyrese Gibson and Beyonce.

"Fast & Furious 6" debuted atop the list Tuesday, pulling in a total of $120 million in the U.S.. Featuring Tyrese, Vin Diesel and Ludacris, the anticipated movie raked in $317 million in global receipts.

Following "The Hangover III" ($51.2 million, No. 2) and "Star Trek Into Darkness" ($47 million, No. 3), "Epic" debuted at no.4 at the U.S. Box Office, pulling in $42.6 million.

The 3D feature starred Beyonce as Princess Tara, raking in $86.6 million globally.
Yahoo! recently spoke on the phone with "epic" director Chris Wedge – the Oscar winner behind "Ice Age" (2002) and "Robots" (2005) – about helping Beyonce find her animated voice in this "old school classic adventure movie."

"Beyonce, as it turns out, is quite a soulful person, and was able to carry the emotional content that her role required pretty easily," said Wedge. "Up close and personal she's a very committed and focused person. She was a little timid when she first walked up to the microphone to do acting and not singing, but as soon as she got past that she was really able to reach right in and get what the role required emotionally."

Though Wedge may have been surprised by Knowles's initially timidity, he wasn't surprised by her passion. "As I thought about it, she probably pours her heart into her singing, and this wasn't much difference, she just poured it into these lines."

Being a mom and one of the biggest stars on the planet, Knowles obviously has a lot going on, but when she gets down to work, she's focused and committed. "She's hard to get on the phone, but once you get her in the room, she's all yours," said Wedge. "We didn't have to go for many adjustments. She gave us a really strong performance in the first session and we used a lot of that for the scenes we recorded that day."

Though Wedge is used to working with big names, we asked if he was intimidated by working with a name as big as Beyoncé's. "It's tough to be intimated by her. Her bodyguard's pretty intimidating, he's about seven feet tall, but he's a nice guy."
