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.
