Beyoncé Is Reportedly Releasing New Solo Music This Summer
She’s allegedly working on a Netflix documentary based on her Coachella 2018 performance as well.
Beyoncé fans may be in store for new solo music this summer, according to Us Weekly. It’s not expected to be a full album, but would still be the first solo material Beyoncé has released in several years.
The report cites an unnamed source revealing that Beyoncé has recorded a “couple of new tracks [for] a deluxe album filled with old songs.” While Us Weeklydoesn’t share any further details about the new material, it’s possible that the Houston-born singer could be releasing her first ever greatest hits collection.
Earlier this year, The-Dream alluded to collaborating with Beyoncé in a Hot 97 interview. “She’s doing something,” he said. “I actually haven’t talked to her about it. I’ve talked to the team about it because it’s just kind of being coordinated. But she’s doing something.”
Regardless of where the music will land, Beyoncé hasn’t released any solo material since 2016’s Lemonade. In 2017, she guested on Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect Duet” and Eminem’s “Walk on Water.” Last year, Beyoncé appeared on DJ Khaled’s “Top Off” and released the collaborative EVERYTHING IS LOVE album with JAY-Z.
Us Weekly also reports that Beyoncé is working on a Netflix documentary “tied to her Coachella 2018 performance,” where she was the first black woman to headline the festival. It is rumored to contain additional footage from the show.
Beyonce’s set was highlighted by her rendition of “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,”which is often referred to as the “Black National Anthem,” and made headlines for reuniting Destiny’s Child. She also used imagery associated with HBCUs and NPHC greek organizations as well as Egyptian royalty and Malcolm X.
This July, Beyoncé will voice Nala in Disney’s remake of The Lion King alongside Donald Glover, who plays Simba. In February 2018, Elton John told The Sun that he’s collaborating with Beyoncé on a new song for the end credits.
