Good news for Beyonce fans: her fifth album may drop next year!
According to Columbia Records chairman Rob Stringer, the label’s 2014 calendar includes a release from the 32-year-old pop star.
“At the beginning of next year we’ve got Broken Bells and Bruce Springsteen. Then we’ve got Lea Michele from Glee coming, and we’ve got Foster the People up next. Then we’ve got Pharrell and Solange, and obviously, at some point Beyonce will put a record out, and when she does it will be monumental,” he said. “So we’re in really, really good shape.”
Stringer didn’t offer an exact date, but we know Bey is a true artist so she won’t release the project until it’s perfect.
During an interview with Billboard this summer, friend and longtime collaborator Ne-Yo said “I’m still putting stuff together for Beyonce’s album.”
“They’re still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I’m not mad at. Beyonce’s the kind of artist where you’re not gonna see it till it’s right,” he added. “And her fans — they love her so they’ll be patient.”
The songstress released four news songs this year, including “Bow Down/I Been On,” “Grown Woman,” “Standing on the Sun” and “God Made You Beautiful.” There’s no word yet if those tracks will appear on the upcoming album.
