with yesterday’s #beyherenow campaign sending the internet in a frenzy, everyone was expecting beyonce to drop a new song. well – not exactly. we get a SNIPPET of a new song in a cheesy, albeit retrospective look into beyonce in a…
…commercial for pepsi. the snippet is for the timbaland-produced “grown woman,” due out on her next solo LP later this year.
as if beyonce’s two snippets in “bow down” weren’t #FLEXIN’ on all of rap music, she fucked around and got a remix for the ages. putting all of houston on the map was a priority here, enlisting some of our city’s finest hip-hop royalty from years and generation’s past.
being from this city, trying to wipe this shit-eating grin off my face after i listened to this track was impossible.
after nabbing another grammy last night for his work on “no church in the wild,” the-dream also hit up an interview billboard to discuss what’s new in his own personal camp. for starters, he’s changing the album name to fourplay and it’ll drop on may 7, 2013.
even better: he’ll be releasing his first single, “slow it down,” this thursday – valentines day. he also mentioned that he’s working on beyonce and kanye west on their respective albums.
goodness gracious, mrs. queen bee beyonce carter fuckin’ killed it, didn’t she? amidst all the LED lights, destiny’s child stage reunion, and a whole hell of a lot of gyrating, the super bowl viewership was treated to an excellent halftime show. more importantly, i’m pretty sure she caused that whole power outage thing.
also, she announced a brand new world tour, for which you can see the dates below the jump. and damn, she’s hitting houston ON MY BIRTHDAY. yikes, i need to go.
beyonce is currently reigning as the queen bee cover star of this month’s issue of gentleman’s quarterly. so take a peek at the behind the scenes of the photoshoot (fy terry richardson), filled with frolicking and other awesome things beyonce engages in.
beyonce’s probably gonna have a monstruous year. destinys child just put out their first song in 8 years, for starters. add to that fact – she’s performing at the halftime show of the superbowl and now this: a trailer for a new HBO special, life is but a dream. from the looks of it, it’ll be an up close and personal gaze into bey’s normally privatized life, with her at the helm of narration. looking forward to it!
as if the timberlake wasn’t big enough news, the folks behind bey announced that destiny’s child will be releasing love songs, a greatest hits compilation that shouldn’t strike you about anything — BESIDES the fact that there will be a new song, “nuclear,” on it. produced by pharrell, too. tracklisting below the jump.
new orleans’ super dome needs to prepare for queen bee, as she’s just been tapped to perform at the half time show at this year’s festivities. this will be a good look for houston, CAUSE WE ALL KNOW WE’RE FINNA BE IN THAT THING REPRESENTING THE AFC.
in conjunction with world humanitarian day (it’s tomorrow), beyoncé released a live video of her performance of “i was here” at the united nations’ general assembly world, where, in an elegant white dress, bey stood before a giant screen projecting various relief efforts around the world. check it out above and leave your social network mark on humanitarian day by going here.
so much awesome happening here: we’ve got chairlift in-studio with australia’s triple j radio who, alongside bff kool a.d. of das racist fame, take a stab at beyonce’s “party” from her fantastic album 4. throw in a perfunctory “niggas in paris” riff and we’ve got ourselves a party goin’.
