Yesterday we learned from a record executive that Beyoncé MAY be releasing her new album in December but today we hear something more concrete from songwriter/producer Pharrell Williams, who has direct knowledge of Bey’s new album. According to Pharrell, Bey is almost finished with her album but he gives no hint WHATSOEVER that she is ready to release her new album by year’s end. According to Pharrell, Beyoncé will not be releasing her album until she feels it’s ready for release so … we wait with bated breath. Click below to read Pharrell’s comments on Bey’s album and get excited nonetheless.
Pharrell Williams has said the new Beyoncé album he’s working on is almost finished. The producer and Daft Punk collaborator says the singer’s new material is “crazy” but added that she won’t put out any music until she is absolutely happy with it. “B’s album is crazy,” he told Billboard. “Let me tell you what it is. She’s very particular. She’s a Virgo. And she’s not going to put it out until it’s ready and feels like it’s right to her.” “She’s got a very specific taste,” he continued. “I guess that’s the reason she’s Beyoncé. Her name is recognisable around the globe and that’s huge. That comes from someone that has very particular taste. When you know what you want, you won’t stop until you get it. [Other people are hearing her album] and are like ‘Whoa!’ And she’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m almost done.’ And she’s the queen.”
SO … this doesn’t entirely dash our hopes for a December release date but … I’m guessing we shouldn’t hold our breaths just based on what that Columbia Records exec said yesterday. My guess is that the record company REALLY wants Beyoncé to release this year (in time for the holiday shopping season) but she’s gonna do what she’s gonna do. That said, if she’s “almost done” then there is still time for it to be completely done and in stores by December, right? Lord, I hope so. I am dying for a new Beyoncé album so … BEY, YOU BETTA WORK, B!
