Beyonce Album Scrapping Rumors Resurface


Last week a music producer working on Beyonce's highly anticipated Mrs. Carter album let it slip that her entire album had been scrapped [click here if you missed that].

While the producer quickly retracted his statement the album scrapping rumors persist...

From The Hollywood Reporter 
Like a record scratching to a halt, Beyonce, 31, is believed to have auditioned more than 50 songs for her much-anticipated fifth studio album but has decided to scrap them all and start over, a source tells THR.
The singer's label, Sony-owned Columbia, had hoped to have new Beyonce music out by spring, which turned out to be a pipe dream. Now, it looks like a fall release may not be feasible. Columbia had its sights set on a big fourth-quarter bow by Beyonce, both to compete with high-profile releases by Universal Music's Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and to capitalize on her massive Mrs. Carter tour.
But while the stage show goes on without new material -- save for a snippet of “Grown Woman,” the song most commonly heard as the soundtrack to a Pepsi commercial -- it wasn’t initially the plan to take a singer around the world for an ambitious eight-month trek (so far, 36 shows have grossed $55.6 million) while trying to juggle time in the studio.
In turn, the label is getting increasingly more anxious as it looks back to the costly 2011 album,4. Recorded around the globe as she accompanied her husband, Jay Z, and his rap partner Kanye West for their own Watch the Throne sessions, Beyonce was given nearly complete autonomy over the finished product, which also was her first release since excising her father, Mathew Knowles, from her business dealings (she is now self-managed).
4 was her lowest seller at 1.4 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and it failed to produce a buzzy pop hit, despite decent positioning on the R&B charts. Poleman says he hopes for "another 'Single Ladies,' " which spent four weeks at No. 1: "Anticipation is high and expectations are, too," he says.

Bitch fire all the people working on your album, stop all the pop singing shit, and put out a grown woman album, hell Whitney Houston is dead, time for you to step up and get a voice coach, and somebody to write better music for you, and fire DREAM, and hire some top people to put you a album together.

BEYONCE LEAVE THE POP SHIT ALONE! GET SOME GROWN FOLK MUSIC, AND ROC AIN'T DID SHIT FOR YOU AND NOBODY ELSE.

Eww, her 4th nose job is jacked up, looking like Maryl Streep with her lipsyncing fraud behind. At least the 50 million, hey we're talking Beyonce here, so her 5 million concert revenues can pay Pepsi back some of that loan money.

From the looks of things Beyonce is too shame to scrap the album. She's still pushing those bum songs. If she wants to remain on top she need another single ladies...if she doesn't care put that shit out and make the stans do what they do, and manipulate the rest ( never mind you gon get dragged, and called out for dear life by people like me) but whatever !

Honestly if she wants to be a legend, or considered iconic she needs the music to back it up.She has not one classic or iconic song to date. Single ladies is not that a hell of a song if that came to anyone's mind. 3 flop albums in a row for her idk ? She may or may not want to scrap this album...the clock, and her biological clock is ticking !The people are waiting, Pepsi, Sony...tick, tock, tick, tock !

She couldn't find enough decent songs to force her name onto as a writer?

Hey, now you dumb stans can stop lying about how much 4 sold--it barely went platinum. Adele's album sold 10x platinum. You and your queen are pathetic.

Funny how B was supposed to come out with a new album THEN GO ON TOUR, but J comes out with the Album and goes on tour instead.. J is breaking this chick down, look at what they DO not say......

The new songs from her sound horrible but on his track she doing her thang... Really?

He sends her out on tour with NO new music then comes out with an album and competes with her in concert sales...

It has to be a major money issues going on or just plan competing with each other...

Anonymous said...

The only reason she's on tour is to pay for her lawsuits--Dereon racketeering, Gate Five and Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker settlements kicked her ass.

Based on the statement alone below, Columbia should just drop her it will be more cost effective.......They can focus their energy and fiancees on other fresh/young up and coming artist..

That may be J's plan I think too he is trying to destroy her, she pretty much "main-streamed" him you think J could have made it to the Oscars/Oprah/Time Mag without her??

Her job is done, he has the kid, access to all her pics, photos, etc... and bragging rights its a matter of Time, Columbia will drop her soon enough. Anybody can throw up a pyramid hand sign, 666 aka "Ok" sign, have black and white checker board floors basically and one can rep for the devil...

And herein folks, lies the problem. This illiterate bitch is not a writer nor true artist. She's just an entertainer. She needs help from true writers, but no one wants to work with an egotistical, self-centered crook.

the most real article about beyonce's shenanigans this year. The stans thought we were as stupid as them. It was obvius ole girl was supposed to drop a new album in the spring. She didn't lipsync at the inauguration and coochie pop like her life depended on it at the Superbowl. All that promotion was build up for the now non existent album. It's wrap. The pop world is a young woman's game, unless she has chops like old Whitney (RIP), Celine, Adele, etc. Otherwise, you have to get by on your youth/sexiness and them day are over for beyonce. She's destroyed her looks and f*cked up by marrying a camel and having a baby (let's pretend she did. another thing the camel has over her). I don't care hot a MILF is (how i loathe that term) in the end, people don't want to see a mommy coochie popping. Beyonce needs to evolve or move the hell on. I wouldn't be surprised if this chick still thinks she's 19 and sexy. She lives in a bubble world where people tell her what she wants to hear. No wonder 4 was terrible. And I hope she ain't relying on JZ to save her. He is a pimp, plain and simple. I could see him easily taking her child, half her fortunes,music catalog, and rebound with a new woman with slickness and ease. He is a street thug, and always will be. Just because he wears ties don't mean ish. Beyonce needs to GENUINELY become her own woman. Until this happens, she will continue to down spiral. Also, here tour just basicaly paid back Pepsi. SMH. all that ass shaking for nothing, no wonder she added tour dates. I know this woman is tired as hell. but she can never take a break. what a horrible life.

Idk I liked 4 it was a mature album sans "girls run the world" I think she's tryna find the balance between the bday music and 4 music and the two wouldnt mix well unless she made a dbl album (that failed the first try so...no) Beys tryna live up to the hype and doesnt know how to please everyone after being dragged for a lipsync and the harsh criticism for her documentary she's probably second guessing her album

Anonymous said...

I told yall bitches that Fan should put out an album. "I Am.. Wigsnatcha Fierce" I'd buy that shit. Her fans think this bitch can sell snow to a fuckin eskimo. They are in for a seriously rude awakening. Bitch has worn out her welcome. Overexposure is not the look, sweetie. Give someone a chance to fucking miss you. You can't do that, because you're addicted to the praise and attention. Almost as addicted to fame as you are addicted to that red solo cup full of lean with your drunk ass. Sit down in your rocking chair old lady, before you blow a hip! Knit a sweater, suck on Werthers Originals and watch old Matlock reruns Grannyonce. Sick of you!

Anonymous said...

She never had any talent, ya'll fell for the blonde wig and blow fans and even that seems to be getting tired of her, always lip syncing because she's not a true singer. She's good for shaking her ass, that's it, oh and maybe being 31 for the last 7 years, good at inflating numbers, inflating record sales, inflating net worth, bssically being a pathological liar.

Anonymous said...

I believe this article. The Hollywood Reporter is pretty legit. The fact that she's unable to put together an album is KARMA, so I don't feel sorry for her at all. She treated songwriters, who worked with her, like shit by taking writing credits she honestly didn't contribute to. I think it's pretty obvious song writers are having a silent protest against her and they are not giving her their best work anymore. If she had a hit, she would have released it by now. Maybe if she started treating people with respect and gave them their fair share, things would turn around. She should be tired of being caught scheming, jacking other people's styles, and getting sued all the time.

It should be crystal clear to everyone now that she does NOT write her own material, and that she's relied on the creativity of others to get her this far. That is not a crime, but the fact that she took credit for it IS and it's coming back to bite her in her butt pads.

If she was really the "Queen" her lowly subject think she is, she wouldn't need 50 submissions in the first damn place. Write and produce the hits your DAMN SELF!! Got them chickens running around thinkin "I'm the writer, the producer, the mixer, the arranger, the engineer, the director, the editor, the publisher, the choreographer, the pastry chef, the janitor, the wig stylist, the interior designer, the popeye's chicken eater, the liquor drinker... it's ALL ME!"

I really think she is just getting by with a couple of hundred these days. yes, she's doing well tourng. but she was visiting countries that probably get a concert once a year. they would go out for anyone. why she didn't take a real break when she had blue is beyond me. she is destroying her career. that is why i believe she has to be in some serious debt, i mean even if you love the spotlight, you want to lay back on ocassion. beyonce working like something gonna happen if she don't work. i think jay is mean to beyonce.

Honestly I hate to bring up Rihanna but she's evolved more as artist than beyonce! Bc bey doesn't really create her own material she has to rely on others to create her musical style.

This bitch ain't seen 31 for at least 9 years. She has the face of a well botoxed and subtlely surgically enhanced (good surgery) 40 year old.

Her being 31 and JayZ being 45 wouldn't even work in the real world. It makes more sense that she is around 40 and he is 45.

Anonymous said...

"Don't spite your nose for your face"

This saying rings true in so many ways for this chile. Forget the nose jobs and her thinking that hacking that nose away will get her more fame- I can't believe she is trying to hurt Matthew so much that she doesn't see she is DESTROYING her own career.

She fired Matthew and hasnt had a hit since..so wouldn't it occur to her ( and I KNOW it has) to bring him back in some capacity so she can be successful?

I'm telling you, J is trying to kill B...

I'll say it again, people pay attention

1. Who's idea was the fake pregnancy

2. No one around her hears her music, not even J? Cause she sound OK on his part two crap but her music song like shit?

3. Maybe J wants to BE his wife, maybe he hates being a ugly man that like men...Maybe money is his only love because of the false sense of power, thus "hova" bullshit

4. His behavior is not of a loving husband or a caring business partner. Matty stayed defending his daughter beating the lie in everyone's head
example...Bey 25 years old buy her Bday album... Bey wrote Bootylious in this rooom, etc... What J ever said...."Duh Duh she has talent.

5. The room filled with all her pictures, videos, in an air control room who is to say J would not kill her off take her music catalog sell her pics videos and snatch all her accolades just by boasting he had the most selling the best this that she left Blue behind yada yada yada in some rap song.

I can image what J is saying to her--

"You see how lucky you are to be with the hov, the king you busy eating and getting your wig stuck in a fan you didn't see the fan you dumb bitch..you lucky I'm not going to bash your legs in again or twist your arm nah I'm going make you fuck R. Kelly again you fat old bitch get my tranny on the phone hoe don't look at me thats why I fucked your mother had Tina bent back on your pictures...don't touch my kid either your womb is so polluted you hear me Rosemary... go drink my blood out that red plastic cup and fetch my slippers"

That be a cold day in hell before that happens, B can't hear the truth come out her own mouth she can't take that feeling.
She can't even take that weave off , its a security blanket now, she needs it to hide the lip syncing.
Ever notice how she sounds the same all the time each performances the taking hardly switches up,
Her self-esteem is too low to admit/hear/say/ live the truth.. which can set her FREE and put her back on track any time she wants.

I believe Jay Z used her as well, but I wouldnt be surprised if these two pulled a kirksheeda or nene and greg. IDK though, Jays ol ugly ass thinks he should have a young supermodel. If he was just using her, he got what he wanted from the deal. I really like Bey, but there is no need for the gimmicks. Either people will love you and/or what you do or they wont. I wish her the best, and I hope she find herself as an artist. 4 was the bizzness though.

IDK if Maffew could save her or not. The same thing happened dhen Usher got married and fired his mom. But some things just are. NOBODY stays at the top forever, everyone has their highs and lows, its normal and its okay. I agree that Bey should focus on soulful grown up music and leave the ass shaking to the kids, she can still keep it sexy and fun just a lil more mature. She IS talented and she IS loved so she WILL reach the top again.

Beyonce is looking for a million in sales her first week, and she is looking for a diamond plaque. Because after all you need these things in your gift bag to be a queen don't you.
And of course shes looking for some more hit,and if she can't get them fair and square then she will surely buy them.

I think Beyonce needs Wacka Flocka mama to give her a huge reality check. I don't think Mathew is the answer is either, since he only brought her awards anyway.

@7:49 I knew when they extended the tour there'd be no album in the fall. Dunno why she extended it either, she isn't filling the seats for the current leg. There are still 5-6 thousands seats left on StubHub alone for her NY area dates next week, and thousands more in other parts. Must be some empty seats in those arenas, so I hope the stans see "selling out" and "full house" can mean two different things.

Bey is NOT scrapping her album. She's trying to secure a "jay-z samsung deal" with ANYONE. She knows that just like him her sales are not going to meet expectations. There is a serious competition going on in their own home, so she feels as if she has to one-up jay.
