After previewed a few months ago in her Pepsi commercial, here goes the full version of "Grown Woman" — a new, empowering groove from Queen Bey with Timbaland on the production and The-Dream co-penning the expected release for Beyonce's upcoming album.
In case you missed it, Jodeci posted about the pregancy rumors coming to a screeching halt! Jay-Z confirmed that Beyonce is NOT pregnant. Ouch, E! Online. Worst case scenario for breaking news like this.
Last Week, the very impulsive E! Online reported and confirmed that Beyoncé was indeed pregnant with baby number 2. Well guess what… She’s not. Although it didn’t come straight from the houses mouth, it did however come from a very reliable source the E! News didn’t ask… Jay-Z. Yes, hubby Jay-Z spoke with Hot97 Ebro and denied the rumor. Check the video below to hear what Jay-Z’s email said:

Mmmm well can’t say I ever believed this was true for a second. Beyoncé has been confined for 5 festivals and she just extended her tour till September. Does that sound like someone pregnant to you? Didn’t to me either. Meanwhile check out a bonus video of Beyoncé poking fun at the rumors 2 days ago (0:59 mark).
Amazing news for hip hop's royal couple. Beyonce & Jay-Z are expecting a second baby as E! Online cites multiple sources confirming Bey is pregnant. This may connect the dots to the "dehydration and exhaustion" that Beyonce was suffering from leading her to cancel her first ever show recently in Belgium. No doubt, congrats to Beyonce & Jay-Z!
Well since there are no signs of Beyoncé releasing anything new from her upcoming album we must take whatever we can get at this point. Beyoncé has recorded an original song set to appear on the soundtrack for her new animation movie, Epic. The song is titled “Raise Up” and was written by King Bey herself and Sia who wrote Rihanna’s“Diamonds.”Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe produced the song. Beyoncé’s label, Columbia Records will release the song later this month.
I’m not 100% on when Beyoncé plans to drop her 1st single, but my only guess is when she wraps up the UK leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour June 1st. That leaves the entire month of June open till she kicks off the US leg of her tour June 28th during BET’s “The BET Experience” leading into the 2013 BET Awards airing live July 1st.
In the meantime, The-Dream has recently revealed a very exciting song set to appear on his new album, IV Play. The song is titled “Turnt” and it features Beyoncé and 2 Chainz. Due to clearance issue with a sample used, The-Dream has removed his original song with Beyoncé “Fi (Fire),” which has been described as a very sexual track off the album. Well that sucks! Hopefully Dream releases the song for free so I can enjoy it or the sample gets cleared.
Yessssssssss Kelly! This cover > Okay back to the actual story. Today Kelly Rowland released the artwork for her fourth solo studio album, Talk A Good Game. The album is set to drop June 18th featuring collaborations from band matesBeyoncé and Michelle Williams, Wiz Khalifa, Pharrell, The-Dream, Mike Will Made It, and more. “Kisses Down Low” serves as the lead from the new album. Also Kelly along side with The-Dream will kick off their tour “Lights Out” on May 23rd in Minneapolis. You can get your tickets now here. I can’t wait till this drops!
04.26: It’s finally here! Check out Beyoncé’s and Andre 3000’s take on the late great Any Winehouse“Back To Black.” The very highly anticipated cover will be featured on The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which will be made available May 7th. Don’t you just LOVE how haunting and seductive Beyoncé’s voice sounds on this? Sadly I could have very much done without Andre 3000's part.
05.02 UPDATE: The CDQ version can now be streamed below via NPR.
TIBS EDIT: Gotta send a special shoutout to Chicago's own Hollywood Holt, who produced this record. The story of how that happened made the Chicago Reader and is a fun, quick read here. #TreatedCrew!
