Beyonce Aims To Launch Boy Band And New Label

Published: Thursday 22nd Sep 2011 by David

World renowned for her ambition as well as her many talents, recent years have seen Pop force Beyonce venture into a number of different business endeavors outside of her own career in music.

From joining Jay Z and Will Smith in launching ‘Fela: The Musical‘ to becoming the face of her mother’s ‘House Of Dereon‘ clothing line and her own line of fragrances.

Now the songstress has confessed what she hopes to achieve in the near future.  Find out exactly what that is below…

She revealed:

I am still working on balance and still growing. I am starting my company, my label. I want to create a boy band. I want to continue to produce and do documentaries and music videos. I eventually want to start directing for other artists. Once I know that I have my stuff together and I trust that, I can do it for other artists.

I see so many male artists building these empires and passing their knowledge on to other artists and development. I see myself doing the same thing and hopefully other younger artists when they grow up and they have been around for 15, 20 years, they can do the same thing.

Already recognized by many of her fans as a shrewd and in control business woman, it will be interesting to see how Mrs. Carter’s empire expands in coming years.

For if experience is indeed the best teacher, who better to head a label than a woman who has spent the last fifteen years working both at the forefront and behind the scenes of  an ever changing media industry.

An industry which has always rewarded musicians for branching out into  business.

The news of these new ventures will be sure to change many things, but more interestingly – what will the birthing of her own record label mean for her relationship with Sony Music?

  2. KAT DELUNA FAN September 22, 2011

    she better find them a real manager because she sucks at it.
    good luck to her tho

  3. chulo September 22, 2011

    Long live the queen!!!

  4. MissImpartial September 22, 2011

    I don’t think that the US is into boy bands anymore. And if she wants to do a Label she should get her father a role as he is the one who created DC. No matter how shady Mathew is he knows his business and managed DC and Beyonce for so many years.

  5. The-Truth September 22, 2011

    She may have good intentions but her group will FLOP and FLOP HARD. I mean let’s look at it Michael Jackson – Brownstone, Madonna – Cleopatra , Mariah Carey – Allure, Whitney Houston – Sunday, Prince – Vanity 6. ALL FLOPS and Bey will follow the same path. I already see her trying to create some Boys II Men, N*Sync Hybrid

  6. JP September 22, 2011

    This is actually quite impressive. Usually Beyonce is pretty predictable, but this is something I never would have expected from her. Kudos to her.

  7. bougiehippie September 22, 2011

    she’ll do a bang up job.

  8. tyra September 22, 2011

    she bulding tht empire boy

  9. bey’knight September 22, 2011

    hmm there’s many things on that list, people dont be getting your hopes of hearing warbling freshfaced boyband by 2012 lol. im selfsh; i still want her to do HER at least until her late 30s, then she can gift a launching pad out. why a boyband though? she seems very specific….

    she can still laise her label with Sony, many artists have those kinds of deals like Missy, Akon i believe.

    Im so glad she has her own production company. it’s afforded her alot more control compared to other artists. Im sure the company was some way financially involved in the production all the unreleased videos from this era

  10. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 22, 2011

    Interesting she said boy band and not girls. I don’t see it happening, there hasn’t really been a successful ongoing band launch from any one and MANY folks have tried. The trouble is managing is a full time job, singers/rappers take it on thinking they can tack it onto their wall of achievement and usually their careers take a backseat, the new group suffers from neglect and eventually disbands disappears.

    As for directing, music videos, and documentaries…no offense but Beyonce struggles with creativity in her own name and brand. You have to be VERY creative to do those things and you can’t constantly be inspired by YouTube vids and contacting other people to replicate someone else’s art. I think she’ll give it her best shot but I don’t see it going anywhere.

    Very big dreams but…Beyonce found a very successful niche for herself, she’s good at it and there’s a reason for that. She should stick to that since she’s realized from this era running the show BEHIND the scenes and orchestrating everything is incredibly difficult and requires skill.

  11. Bow Down to The Perrylicious… (The Queen of TGJ) September 22, 2011

    she is flopping.
    that’s why.. Mmmm..

  12. Jess September 22, 2011

    Its nice to see that she wants to find and help new talent! I think she would be great at it! She knows the value of work ethic and I think she would put that into any artist she finds!

  13. MissImpartial September 22, 2011

    @THOSE THAT CANNOT DO, STAN
    Agree with everything that you have said!!!!!!!!!!

  14. 4CLOSED PROPERTY 4 SALE(FREE LACEFRONT INCLUDED) September 22, 2011

    will the members consist of people she found on youtube while searching for vids to steal, i mean, be “inspired by”?

  15. MissImpartial September 22, 2011

    She looks facially stunning in that pic. Her make-up is on point.

  16. YOOSONDALOOSE September 22, 2011

    We need Bey to release singles!

  17. KAT DELUNA FAN September 22, 2011

    @BEY KNIGHT
    l want her to do her also.lt seems to be too early for her to quit everything and focus on someone else while ppl are still so interesting on her.usher found JB after his momentum passed,Jay found rihanna the same way and so Akon with Gaga.

    A boys band is not hot right now,she should focus on herself but l guess she want to be behind the scene during the first years for her child.

  18. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA(IS†ANN4GAGA) September 22, 2011

    Boy Bands aren’t that successful anymore,BUT If Beysus can manage one successfully then Kudos…

    I’m also curious to see whan kinds of Artists she will put on this label..

    Anyway,There’s just some things you can’t deny about this woman (Her TALENT,Legacy,and Empire)

  19. bey’knight September 22, 2011

    @KAT DELUNA FAN

    i think those goals are medium to long-term goals cus there’s a host of them on there. the heading makes it look otherwise. there’s so much on her plate as it is already;

    -more promo for 4
    -maternity
    -a star is born
    -world tour (she told us she’s working on)

  20. perhaps September 22, 2011

    Imma need her to relax

  21. pleasemakeitstop! September 22, 2011

    Hell no! She is going to get some flamming f*** and have her moma make they’re outfits and they will release “who really run this world”?(f***) and then they will shake they’re nelly queen a**es to the cows come home..ummm.no thank u ms queen of the swagger jackers..ill pass~

  22. bey’knight September 22, 2011

    Can u stop pointing out that boybands arent hot now? she’s a force in the industry, you dont think she’s knows that already? has it occured to you that she may not be going for what’s “hot” in the first place?

    She may not be a Virtuoso but she’s still very much capable of putting the music first rather than going the easy route of promoting a Beyonce 1000.0

  23. JER September 22, 2011

    the b**** needs to launch her own f****** career.

  24. KAT DELUNA FAN September 22, 2011

    @BEY KNIGHT
    -More promo for 4:l dont think so,she is not interested in the albums or even in her career.l feel like her career is fulfilled abd wanna stop,just my opinion,l may be wrong but she is at a stage of her life where she want to focus on others rather than herself.

    -Maternity: obviously

    -A star is born: Well we’ll see

    -World Tour: didnt know about a that,so she said she is preparing a world tour? l am surprised

  25. dale_23 September 22, 2011

    Wait……………………………………………….WHAT???

  26. TruthTeller September 22, 2011

    I think it s the best course of action for her since her career is essentially over

    TGJ post plz 😀

  29. DOB September 22, 2011

    Expanding her brand! Go Bey!

  30. VA STAND UP!!! September 22, 2011

    Good interview. It sounds like she is thinking of the future. Things that she wants to accomplish 5 to 10 years down the road as she builds her family with Joe Camel. It’s obvious she is a workaholic but I really do think she is gonna slow down after her baby is born, she may even be planning on having more children. I think she’s thinking of ways to keep her empire going and the cash flow coming in as she slows down herself.

    I think it’s great she wants to ‘build her empire’ (even though I think her empire right now is pretty damn impressive) and start branching out in other avenues, but I don’t really know if the whole ‘boy band’ thing will work. I mean, IMO ‘boy bands’ were just a fad of the late 90’s & early 2000’s. Even if they were really succesful it never last more than 6 years or so. N Sync, Backstreet Boys, 98 degrees, etc. none of them ever even made it 10 years! Mostly because they were ‘manufactured’. They were brought together by some greedy record exec, told what to sing, how to dress and act. It was all a so cheesy and gimmicky that would only last for so long.

    Maybe due to the lack of ‘boy bands’ is the reason why she wants to try to create one. I would hope it hope it would be an r&b type group, but when you hear the words ‘boy band’ you immediately think pop. I guess we will see what she comes up with whenever she comes up with it.

    I can’t really see her directing videos either. *shrugs*

    Either way it will be very interesting to see where her career goes after she has her baby.

    S/N: She looks so beautiful in that pic too! It’s a throwback, I think from the B-Day era, but its one of my faves of her.

    MAYBE BEYAWNCE CAN BECOME A CERTIFIED PROFESSOR IN SWINGING WIGS AND SHAKING ASS, SHE ALREADY HAS ENOUGH HOURS OF EXPERIENCE TO GET THE CERTIFICATE. SHE CAN THEN TEACH AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND GIVE A COURSE ON HOW TO WORK YOUR WIG WHILE DANCING, AND GIRLS (AND WANNABE GIRLS) WOULD TAKE THE COURSE.

    SMH

  43. T September 22, 2011

    Ok bey has 16 grammys. How many does rihyawnna have? Thought so. Rihyawnna stans should focus on saving rihyawnna generic flop single ‘we found garbage’ & not worry about what a legend like king bey is doing. Bey is already established & is the most successful black female artist of this generation. Haters stay mad. Focus on ur lessor faves.

  44. YEABEY is on your mind. September 22, 2011

    COUNTDOWN IS THE THIRD SINGLE. IT GOES FOR ADDS ON OCT.4. Get ready gurls!

  45. AUDIO/ B5 STREET TEAM September 22, 2011

    I think she’ll have the ability to direct others. It may mean that we’ll stricter, more blunt side her, but that is the main reason why a lot of men are respected in the industry.

    Bey is easily the most AMBITIOUS out of EVERYONE in the Game by far…

    Bey doing her thang i ain’t mad at you gurl. stunning photo beautiful girl.

  50. i’m a billy goat…wearing a bad wig, eww September 22, 2011

    Interesting! It sounds as if she is really planning to move away from being Beyonce the entertainer into the role of CEO! I hope her fans can handle hearing more howling noises from the likes of Rihanna and cringing noises from the likes of Ke$ha, Naked Perry, and Gaga ‘coz’ that’s about all the music scene will be left with should she decide to strictly develop new acts!

  51. KAT DELUNA FAN September 22, 2011

    @I AM BILLY GOAT
    l think so too,l want more bey in my life but she has to do her 😉

  52. the kiddz September 22, 2011

    @YEABEY IS ON YOUR MIND.

    Hmmm…where did you hear that? I thought Love on Top was the third single, it was sent to radio on the 20th of this month.

  53. Sir PerryLus September 22, 2011

    HATE ME NOW
    I think she knows its a wrap and she is just trying to cover her “legacy” how many albums is it now 4..greatest hits next ? then? re-up for 2 more albums? she knows it’s wrap that is why she is saying all of this… sh ehas had her run and she knows it she will still come out with more albums but things will never be the same again

  54. tyra September 22, 2011

    when did beyonce career die

  55. Royalkev September 22, 2011

    Beyonce is such a trailblazer in this game. I love her ambition , she’s truly an inspiring strong woman. When so many choose to follow, she stands tall as a true leader. The sky is the limit with her!

  56. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 22, 2011

    can’t wait to see that ! Her intentions is good , but the question is can she do it ?!

    I think that she’s not experienced in what she said ! and enough UNManaged risks already B.

    How she gonna manage others while she can’t manage herself ?! The 4 era is a living proof !

    I need Mathew’s ass back to manage her ! cuz the 4 era is going behind the sun ! she could have released 4 after giving birth to her baby ! that what I think could have been good for her and her fans , but ….

    SHE CAN’T MANAGE anyone ! sorry !!

    we don’t even know her next move !
