Beyonce LP Pushed Back?

400 beyonce 080117 fmbrown 78211043 Beyonce LP Pushed Back? According to the NY Daily News, Beyonce’s hotly anticipated still untitled album may be hitting stores a little later than expected:

The singer’s new album was due at her label Wednesday morning in order to make an announced Nov. 18 release date, but insiders tell us there have been problems.

“It’s not going to be completed,” said a source close to folks who’ve been working on the CD. “She’s got to get it out early in the fourth quarter, when there’s so much competition among artists.”

Part of the delay may be due to Beyoncé’s busy-than-ever acting schedule. The beauty spent months filming “Cadillac Records,” in which she plays Etta James, and she’s also working on the psychological thriller “Obsessed.”

Another time-consumer was a duet with Justin Timberlake – the source says the two didn’t like the way it was turning out and kept doing it over until they got it right.

Plus, claims our insider, “She clashes with Max Gousse, her father’s guy who’s involved.”

Beyoncé’s dad, Matthew Knowles, asked us, rhetorically, “How would he not be involved? He’s the vice president of my company, and she’s recording with my company.”

And Gousse is the man who convinced her to record Ne-Yo’s “Irreplaceable” – which became her biggest hit to date.

Still, the source counters, “Jay-Z encouraged Beyoncé to bring in Jay Brown and Ty Ty [Tyran Smith]” – both of whom have worked with red-hot singer Rihanna.

Beyoncé will release two singles, “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies,” this Tuesday.

The chief of Sony BMG Music, Rob Stringer, got on the phone last week to tell us, “She has an enormous number of very talented people doing whatever they can to make it the best record possible.

“Normally I would lie low, but we think the first two singles will be utterly huge. They’re two of the best songs of her career. Beyoncé is incredibly hardworking, and [the album] is 97%-98% done. It’ll be out before Nov. 20. Frankly, we think the whole record is going to be huge.”

I’m gonna need Bouncy’s album to drop ASAP – which at this junction, is the November 18th that was previously announced. Stans, haters and all those in-between know the drill by know; a Beyonce release is an event. Roll on November…scratch that…roll on next week – the debut of Beyonce’s new singles ‘If I Were A Boy’ and ‘Single Ladies’.

    is it just me or does anyone else need a break from beyonce? she doesnt go away. and 2 singles. is that necessary? i admit she is talented but she just never goes away and gives anyone a chance to miss her. again, she has talent and is one of the leaders in the game but does she need to shove it down my throat with a new album every year?

    First of all, I love Beyonce very much and I can’t wait for the album but, howcome she’s releasing her two singles on Michelle’s Unexpected Debut? I will be buying Unexpected from FYE on Tuesday and I am also waiting for a Beyonce and Kelly Rowland album. Queen B will reign again this year and 2009 along side Michelle! I think that Bey should come out now and shut Ciara and Rihanna DOWN! And when Destiny’s Child comes back they can shut Pussycat Dolls and Danity Kane DOWN!

    ^^^^^B’Day was rush she said she did it in like two-three weeks whatever that why it didn’t do well i think bee is gonna be like j.lo

    she didn’t take a break she perform at the grammys with tina turner for what reason

    she thought b-day was gonna be her diva album aka whitney houston the bodyguard soundtrack but it wasn’t

    I like beyonce but like diana ross they have it in there head that they can be the only black top star

    Bee i can tell likes going against other artist like janet in her prime said she like to do and it’s okay

    I don’t know about ya but i love having rihanna,ciara,amerie,astanti,others because if we don’t what fun would it be only having beyonce since she is so boring

    The 90′s,80′s,70′s had more then one top female star but now beyonce tsnas think that she can be the only one on top

    But watch her fall down she is 27 gosh and had done nothing mermoable the only song that she has to her name is crazy in love

    And i think beyonce knows this that why i think she is always rivaliing sharika cause she is consider a legend whatever in her own right, j.lo who is non-talent but will be remember for her glamor

    Too me beyonce made a big mistake dating jayz
    if she wanted to be a big star so bad she wouldn’t look his way the media don’t care for rappers no matter how much cash he makes he is still this drugdealer from brooklyn that made it big

    I think the article only confirmed that her album is coming out in time. If the album is 98% done then they are just mastering a few remaining tracks.

    oh goodness. so what if she hasn’t been away? so what if she wants to keep doing what she likes and satisfying her fans? the fact that she HASN’T been away just goes to show how committed she is to her work, there’s a reason why she has millions of fans who LOVE her work. and why do you say it’s rushed? just because b’day was? she’s been working on this album since before she even ended her true which was way last year.

    so beat it if you hate it. go find your own singer to like.

    Why should she take a break? Its her JOB! I think its very smart of her to keep moving forward. Lets be real Beyonce is 27, there are not many relevant singers over thirty (besides Mary). Whats wrong with her trying to cement her status and put out good music before the window of opportunity closes? I hope the two new songs are as good as dude says they are because I agree Beyonce has not made many “classic” songs beside “Irreplaceable” and “Crazy In Love”.

    I LIKE BEYONCE BUT I DO BELIEVE SHE IS BECOMING OVERATED BIG TIME, WHEN THE HARDCORE FANS AER BEGGING FOR HER RETURN,

    IRREPLACEABLE WITH A DOUBT IS HER BEST SOLO SONG EVER, CRAZY IN LOVE, WASN’T ALL THAT, IT’S JUST A POP ANTHEM AND AS FOR BDAY, IT WAS GREAT. BEYONCE WAS AT HER BEST WITH DC, BELIEVE IT ALL NOT, SHE HAS ONLY TWO MAJOR BIG SOLO SONGS AND WHEN SHE’S IN CONCERT SHE SINGS A LOT OF DC SONGS

    I THINK PEOPLE ARE MORE INTERESTED IN BRITNEY’S RETURN

    they way that i see it is that yes she has been in the public eye none stop so what. I like her stuff so does millions of people over the world, plus abv mentioned that she has two classic singles, well thats a good achievement in my books. Not a lot of acts have more than 1 plus thats 2 this decade yeah.

    Most of you forget that Beyonce was Destiny’s Child, so whatever hits (Independent Woman, Bootylicious, Say My Name, Bills Bills Bills, No No No, Survivor etc. etc.) they had are automatically hers. Ya’ll know that you are kidding yourselves when you say that no one is checking for the 4th Most Powerful Celeb in the world (I didn’t say it Forbes did). Although I do hope that she steps her game (lyrically) up. [I would love to hear another Dangerously In Love, something moving and profound] Anyway roll on release date (LOL).

    Why can’t people like Beyonce and Rhianna? People make me sick when they try to pump their favorite artist up but they put down another artist. And, i wish people stop bringing up how much money Beyonce made. Yall act like she giving yall some of that money. And, it’s not about what you make but about what you keep. Yall act like all money is good money. Trust me, she stepped on a lot of people to get where she is.

    I love Beyonce, she’s on a little list of a few talented singers. It’s crazy how people say she needs to sit down when her last project came out 2 years ago. Plus how B’Day didn’t do well when it sold 3.5 million in US and 6.2 million worldwide. Check your facts people!!! She’s the queen and people need to realize that she’s not going anywhere and you same people crying about her needing to sit down are the same ones that will be buying the album on the first day!

    I don’t really count B’day as a Beyonce album is was more a Deena/Sasha album with all that screaming. But i liked the fact it was edgy and different from other albums.

    Think shes got fire lined up this time, and for someone like her who writes alot its hard to stay out the game over 2years.

    Michelle ain’t gonna get the Number 1 album and Kelly Struggles to reach the summit so B might as well just do her thang. The only other DC member that got there is LeToya and she did it because she grinded and hustled herself and her label was shocked and unaware of the popularity she actually which meant sum budget second video…

    I Look 4ward to what Beyonce (not Deena or Sasha) has in store.
