    They’re just gonna make him retract his statement 😆

    • MonsterGaga November 15, 2013

      It will flop like hell…

      • Hivy aka NO November 15, 2013

        LMAO NOT A GAGA STAN SPEAKING OF FLOPS. bUY ARTPOO0P SIS

      • KING B November 15, 2013

        if there is a song thats gonna be better than halo???? then I’m sorry for you b******!!!!

  2. Dark horse November 15, 2013

    Why do i feel like its gonna be a knock off of stay.

    • NO(Halo My Name) November 15, 2013

      Why does it have to be “Stay”? Ya’ll act like Beyoncé copies everything Rihanna does when other artist do the same thing over and over.

    • Born To Die November 15, 2013

      Stay is not that unique or innovative have a seat.

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        No one said it was

      • Born To Die November 15, 2013

        So why would she want to knock it off

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Cause shes known for being a rip off that’s why sis

      • #Beautiful November 15, 2013

        Lady Gaga is known as a rip off Beyonce is not! Get a life! Beyonce will always be >>>>

    • yeah November 15, 2013

      LMAO YOU ARE SO FUNNY, I LIKE YOU 🙂

    • XoMoDe November 15, 2013

      No one with talent copies Rihanna. If she inspires anyone, it’s the tone-deaf, rhythmless, broke b**** sect (which she belongs to) whose fame is dependent upon how many blowjobs they supply to various producers, rappers and A&R execs…like her.

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        True

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        She so talentless yet shes getting the first ever icon award at the amas hun

      • XoMoDe November 15, 2013

        I don’t care what “award” Roc Nation arranged for her to get. She’s still a non-singing s*** from a slum dog country whose claim to fame was prostitution and being Chris Brown’s punching bag. First ever Icon award for perpetually off key b!tches with huge foreheads. Congrats Riri.

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Awwww your upset 🙂

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        xomode IKR? Read! The b**** cant even spell you’re properly. Katy Perry stans are like 12 though. Shows in their mentality

      • ARTPOP WILL FLOP November 15, 2013

        you are so bitter girl.

      • Forever beautiful like Madonna November 15, 2013

        @Xomode why you so upset did Rihanna steal from you or beat your mother up?

  3. Amanda Bynes November 15, 2013

    I’m so excited for Beyonce to release a new album in 2015.

    • NO(Halo My Name) November 15, 2013

      Hopefully by 2015 Amanda is still not on crack.

  4. RoyalKev November 15, 2013

    That’s exciting news to hear ! I can’t wait to listen to this project. Bey just gets better with time. I hope this album bridges the gap between B’Day and 4! Those are my favs from B’s discography, although the singles from DIL and IASF are everything! I just want a solid mesh of good up-tempos with meaningful mid’s and ballads. I’m so ready for this woman! I already know this album will be next level for B!

    • Pop Professor November 15, 2013

      Me too, B’Day is still her best album to date in my opinion from start to finish and although I love every Beyonce album for vocal reasons, she has yet to match her vocals from Bday.

      • yeah November 15, 2013

        that album is generic ghetto trash mess. her albums suckkkkkk

      • ARTPOP WILL FLOP November 15, 2013

        really such a huge basic album with flop songs. have a seat.

  5. DIGGER BEY November 15, 2013

    B**** Please. Nobody don’t want to copy that generic singles h**.

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      generic aka grown woman, single ladies, diva, standing on the sun just to name a few sis.

      • Bey Fan November 15, 2013

        What other songs are like Grown Woman and Single Ladies??? The lyrics may be juvenile… but the main reason I like Grown Woman is because this is nothing like it on the radios.

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        The lyrics are so generic sis.

      • BEYHIVE November 15, 2013

        And “You’re gonna hear me Roar” is not???

      • #Beautiful November 15, 2013

        What about…. I want you to Staaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy????? #H**

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        Umbrella ELLA ELLAA ELLA?

      • Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) November 15, 2013

        Lmao the hive just clocked your ass!!

      • Beyonceforlife November 15, 2013

        Oh really? what about ” Baby you’re a fireworkk?” sounds pretty generic and basic to me. and “I used to bite my tougur and hold my breathe” ? hahaa. take a seat b**** and drink bleach

  6. Born To Die November 15, 2013

    Glad shes doing a ballad or mid tempo. Love her ballads

  7. Hivy aka NO November 15, 2013

    Halo is by far my fav ballad.

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      Its so basic it has nothing on Fireworks ,Unconditionally,DUI, or Diamonds

      • Hivy aka NO November 15, 2013

        I love katy but lets not act like katy has the best ballads ever……………. don’t drag yourself. I’m not here for you to start stan wars.

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Katy has better ballads than most

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Yes sis @H** i feel like Katy Hudson was only a flop because it was a gospel record.

      • FAF November 15, 2013

        U better stan for DUI! @Dark Horse

  8. Hadley November 15, 2013

    Im ready for some mature vocal slayage.

  9. Hadley November 15, 2013

    I want her to make another song like Satellites or Start Over. She has a lot of underrated music people dont know of.

  10. LA LA November 15, 2013

    Well that’s nice of her. Ryan has a great voice.

    I hope she doesn’t make him retract his statements.

  11. Yeah I Said it November 15, 2013

    Queen Bey! Boobies! Love her. Whatever she has to offer I cant wait to hear.

  12. Hivy aka NO November 15, 2013

    Which was the better “POP” album?

    Warrior~ke$ha vs PRISM~Katy Perry

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      There both good but Prism is better it shows growth.

      • Yeah I Said it November 15, 2013

        :/

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        What?

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        You’re gonna hear me roar louder than a lion is growth? Sounds like regression back to pre school actually.

  13. Miss M November 15, 2013

    These writers and producer love a lil keke so they look exclusive. Just hush and let the music speak. Anyway Bey u betta slay my life babe.

  14. yeah November 15, 2013

    BETTER SECOND SINGLE – UNCONDITIONALLY OR DO WHAT YOU WANT (WITH MY BODY)? WHICH ONE WILL DO BETTER ON THE CHARTS?

    • #NoMoreHoes November 15, 2013

      “Unconditionally” is better. Gaga is too cliche, and now she tries to sound like Xtina. smh

  15. Bey Fan November 15, 2013

    Did someone just call Halo basic, but gave praise to DUI, Diamonds, and Fireworks???? What in the entire F**K… I cant….

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      Yes i did sweetie the vocals in firework slay halos.. and Dui and diamonds are much better ballads than halo sis

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        Death! You are delusional. Vocals on fireworks? Katy Perry cant slay Beyonce at anything vocally. She herself admitted shes a legend.

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Girl please Fireworks vocals and arrangement are legendary and timeless.. Fireworks was also a bigger hit than halo just saying. Halo is a decent song but its pretty forgettable sorry its the truth don’t be mad babe .

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        Hush lol. Fireworks isnt even a ballad LMAO

      • Dark horse November 15, 2013

        Never said it was a ballad c***. i obviously said diamonds and dui were a better ballad than Halo and that Katys vocals on firework slay the vocals on Halo f*****

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        No. To the entire comment.

      • Beywhoyawanna November 15, 2013

        You so delusional @DARK HOUSE…lmao that was a good laugh though.

        lol, like really?

  16. The art of letting go of my damn career November 15, 2013

    Not Katy stans critiquing ANYTHING….

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      Not me being your topic of discussion over beyonce awww .

  17. JER November 15, 2013

    SMH. But can he confirm a single or album or any release date?

  18. B2B November 15, 2013

    She’s coming!!! Lets get #Back2Business

    • JER November 15, 2013

      #Back2BeingBeysic

  19. Pop Professor November 15, 2013

    Death at a Katy Perry fan coming for anyone’s vocals.
    Beyonce>Katy anyday all day.
    If halo is basic then every single since Katy’s debut is straight garbage.I mean you really can’t believe the bs you are spewing and most def are trying to start a stan war.Now I love my pop music but beyonce would sing every song Katy ever recorded better than she would and that’s just the absolute truth!

    • Kim Kardashian stan November 15, 2013

      If Beyonce sung Katy songs they wouldn’t be hits #fact

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        And if Katy sung beyonce songs.. Oh wait she could never sing Beyonce songs because she cant even sing roar live properly.

      • Kim Kardashian stan November 15, 2013

        Katy would never sing those ghetto basic flop songs.

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        She could never *plays the basic ghetto LOVE ON TOP*

    • JER November 15, 2013

      Not you 2 ho’s going back and forth. Katy can’t sing live for anything but all she’d have to do to sing a BeYAWNce song live is lip sync so I don’t see the issue.

      • Mischa November 15, 2013

        b**** shut up. You KNOW Beyonce can actually sing live and does sing live. She lip sync now and then like everyone else included rihshitta. be seated.

      • JER November 15, 2013

        Stay pressed 🙂

      • Mischa November 16, 2013

        Says the one perched hating in the Beyonce post

  20. Miss M November 15, 2013

    You’re supposed be a fan of someone yet you’re calling one of their biggest hits a ballad when its not. #Death.

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      When did i say it was a ballad i said the vocals were better and timeless.

      • Miss M November 15, 2013

        So why the hell are you comparing it to Halo? The Hivy person sad Halo is his/her favorite BALLAD and you decided to throw fireworks in the mix to say its better.

      • #NoMoreHoes November 15, 2013

        Lol. U sound stupid, trying to compare Bey’s vocals with katy’s. Haha ridiculous. She can’t even sing her own songs live properly.

  21. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 15, 2013

    I still don’t see a release date. I see another diplo reveal coming.

    *sips tea*

    • Touché November 15, 2013

      ^This

    • Beywhoyawanna November 15, 2013

      Both of y’all are c**** of the highest form. Sip your tea and choke b****.

  22. Kendall November 15, 2013

    Interesting. Better than Halo huh? Its not even near my favorite slow song, Dangerously In Love is. Until your fav can sing ballads like that and Listen instead of watered down vocally simplistic ones you have no room to talk.

  23. BeyIsKing November 15, 2013

    F*** TGJ for moderating my comments I aint no f****** troll. When I click on “find out why” it says page doesn’t exist. What the actual f***?

  24. ABC November 15, 2013

    I like Ryan Tedder. Glad she rejected Dr Luke. Beyonce knows.

    • Dark horse November 15, 2013

      She knows what how to flop? Dr luke produces HITS something beyonce hasn’t had since 09 she can stick to working with flop writers and producers like the dream that wont get her no were.

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        Why are you still here? Go away you troll. You sound like someone else anyway.

        Beyonce 40 mill from 18 dates in Australia
        Katy 55.9 mill from 125 dates WW and album to support.

        Katy Perry ‘Im Bowing Down’ ‘Beyonce is a living legend’

        Dont you get the hint no matter what you say you SUPPOSEDLY stan for a lessor now have a seat

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        Ryan Tedder worked on 21 is he a flop? Diane Warren wrote Unbreak my heart is she a flop? Katy Perry cant even get better first week sales than 4 with hits boo you tried though

  25. mypenizfresh November 15, 2013

    I love Ryan Tedder’s style for Beyonce. He does a great job finding the international pop, to mesh with R&B. ‘Halo’ was such a good format of ballad for Beyonce to go with. It is a song that is classic, and will be played for years to come. I’m excited to hear this cd, Sia, Ryan Tedder, Dream, and I’m hoping Emeli Sande.. this cd is shaping up to be much more universal!

  26. ARTPOP WILL FLOP November 15, 2013

    She will forever flop.

  27. Yaz November 15, 2013

    QUEEN!

  28. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) November 15, 2013

    The fact that this crazy ass katy stan said that halo was forgettable yet I can’t even think of the chorus for basic fireworks. Girl Bye! And this new song better slay!!

  29. Forever beautiful like Madonna November 15, 2013

    Gaga Katy Ciara and Rihanna are superior to Beyonce. Sorry hive

    • Yaz November 15, 2013

      Troll

    • Yaz November 15, 2013

      They all bow down to her so nah.

      • Forever beautiful like Madonna November 15, 2013

        No they all bow down to Queen Madonna B****.

      • Yaz November 15, 2013

        Would you like me to post receipts of them ALL bowing down?

      • Yaz November 15, 2013

        Oh and btw you know you are no Madonna stan you’re a troll Madonna stans dont act like they just came out of kindergarden with foolishness. So stop hiding behind her.

  30. I Will Adorn You November 15, 2013

    Perfect match! I look forward to hearing.

  31. Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

    Lmaoo yes t***** i see you. You’ll feature on some else’s song, but you yourself don’t have a song to feature another artist.

    Side note: this song will be basic as f*ck
    Side note2: CANNOT WAIT for beyonce’s new single #2021

    • WE FOUND RIHANNA. November 15, 2013

    • Benji November 15, 2013

      Wow the hatred is unnecessary troll.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        Someone seems upset. Wanna talk about it?

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        No honey only you do. You seem very hateful inside to make comments like that.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        I’m not i find them funny and I don’t care wether you do too il’ll type what I feel.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Sad sense of humor. Socialize more babe.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        Says the one who’s probably alway on this site and has nothing to do on a Friday night but complain about how they don’t like someone’s sense of humor kiii what a pity.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Ok hun. Are you not here aswell? And its not night time in my country. You seem a bit pissed that I made an observation.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        Observation my ass. Your an idiot. An illiterate slow minded idiot. Who’s running out of b******* to say.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Your? Do you mean ‘you’re’ ? Since you’re calling me illiterate? You are literally ‘writting’ your own shade.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        Again it’s called writing fast and making typos. Kiii keep trying.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Any more struggle justifications? Yeah, you really dont care 😉

  32. Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

    And she should dye her hair black it suits her and compliments her face. 🙂

    • Benji November 15, 2013

      Worry about yourself first.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        No no YOU worry about yourself dear. How are you gonna give me a lecture on something you don’t even believe in doing? Goodbye…

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Im not the one spewing hate and insults for the sake of it I dont need to worry about myself because I dont get behind a computer and think its ok to troll just you cant see my face. Only weak people do that. Bet you would not say s*** if you had your own picture up.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        LMAOOO someone’s feeling are really hurt. I’m going to type, read and so what I feel. If you have a problem with it, which is seems you do go cry or something i will not care.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        So why are you responding if you dont care? Im making an observation and Im not lying. Doesnt mean Im upset honey. The only ones embarrasing themselves are people like you.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        .?? Because like I had just told you I write, say and do what I feel. #readmuch?

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        People who dont care dont bother to justify themselves.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        People who DON’T know proper grammar shouldn’t be WRITTING, and like I have explain over a million times now. I write what I feel say what I feel and do as I feel. You can either cry about it or deal with it.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        The awkward moment when you come for someones grammar but can’t spell yourself.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        What does ‘writting’ mean babe since you like to justify yourself?

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        Looool any obvious typo (writing) verses not knowing proper grammar kiii I’m surre

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        So you cant proof read since YOU’RE (another spelling mistake I guess 😉 ) coming for someones grammar? Make sure YOUR grammar is on point before you come for me doll.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        And sure has one ‘R’. Bless YOUR heart you tried, you really did.

      • Ju don’t even know November 15, 2013

        But did i not just say typo? Looool pity can’t read or write.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        Lol. And why should believe you? You’ve made more grammatical errors than me yet using it against me, knowing good and damn well I am just typing like you. At least make sure YOUR grammar is on point before pressing submit to insult someone elses.

      • Benji November 15, 2013

        And just to add since you want to go there… ‘I write what I feel’ should actually be ‘I write HOW I feel’ Mr grammar genious.

  33. WE FOUND RIHANNA. November 15, 2013

    KATY PERRY HAS 0 GRAMMYS TO HER NAME & HER LEGACY, WELP I JUST ENDED THIS ARGUEMENT.

  34. Benji November 15, 2013

    Queen Bey Im ready to hear some REAL vocals its been lacking. And Ryan Tedder is brilliant very talented. Glad she works with ppl like him instead of David Guetta and Red One just to get a hit.

  35. Benji November 15, 2013

    Aww @ what Khloe Kardashian said about her

  36. fatusankoh November 15, 2013

    you go bey bey that is very good news long live queen bey we can’t wait

  37. RICHIE_RICH November 15, 2013

    If it didn’t come from Beyonce’ or her camp not her for it.

  38. LOL November 15, 2013

    FLOP

    • ABC November 15, 2013

      Dont you stan for Gaga though?

      • LADY GAGA QUEEN November 15, 2013

        WHEN WILL TOP GAGA IN TOURING? WHEN WILL SHE SELL 1 MILLION IN A WEEK? WHY HAS GAGA SOLD AS MANY ALBUMS AS BEYFATONCE WITH LESS ALBUMS? WHEN WILL OLDONCE STOP BEING A LESSOR TO HER PEERS IN ALBUM SALES AND STOP BEING A SINGLES ARTIST? KIIIIIIIIIIII

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        But shes estimated to do around 200 million with this Tour. When will Gaga sell 1 million without discounts? Death at you clinging to old receipts anyway when her sales have dropped more than 50% she cant even top the ‘flop’ you call 4 first week with all the twitter meltdowns and gimmicks. FLOP. Looks like you cant use album sales anymore. B*** hurt people are saying shes over after 5 years?

      • LADY GAGA QUEEN November 15, 2013

        GAGA HAS ALREADY HAD A $200 MILLION TOUR SO NOTHING SPECIAL. WITHOUT DISCOUNT SHE HAS SOLD WAY MORE THAN ANY BEYOLDCE ALBUM, OVER 600 000 COPIES IN A WEEK, BUT I AM SURE THAT T********* CAN’T SELL THAT MUCH WITH A DISCOUNT. WHEN WILL BEYFAT ACHIEVE A 15 MILLION SELLING ALBUM? 10 MILLION SELLING SINGLES? SHE CALLS HERSELF KING, RIGHT? AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT ARTPOP, EVEN IF IT DEBUTS WITH LOW NUMBERS IT WILL HAVE LONGEVITY, APPLAUSE IS #11 ON ITUNES AFTER MANY MONTHS AND IT’S HER BIGGEST HIT ON THE RADIO. AND 4 WAS RELEASED IN 2010, ARTPOP IN 2013 AND SEEING THAT ALBUM SALES GO DOWN RAPIDLY, I AM SURE THAT BEYFAT WON’T DO ANY BETTER. AND GAGA IS MORE TALENTED THAN THAT TINA TURNER WATERED DOWN VERSION.

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        But you asked when she will top it. Shes predicted to gross around 200 mill so you wont be able to boast Tour receipts for much longer either. Beyoncé has sold over 500k first week before, 100k difference is not ‘way more’. And as much as you cling to OLD receipts, the real shade is, she did those numbers AND HAS DROPPED more than 50% and she’s just 5 years into her career. Beyoncé been in the game 16 years and still doing her thing, getting better first week sales with her leaked R&B album. Gaga is declining rapidly after 5 years. How do you know the album will have longevity, can you see into the f****** future? You said Gaga was going to s*** on Katy album sales also, and she failed to even top her.

        Album of the Millennium? Yeah right.

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        And not you mentioning Tina, who actually embraces Beyoncé, unlike Gaga the disrespectful Madonna tribute act.

      • ABC November 15, 2013

        The hermaphrodite even tried to disrespect Madonna in a struggle attempt to boost the struggle era and still failed miserably.

        If Beyoncé wants to flop after 16 years in the game it wouldn’t be anything out of sort, look at her female peers who all came out the same time as her and are selling less than her now, she’s established herself in the game and has longevity. Gargoyle on the other hand will go down as nothing but a novelty act who peaked too early.

        LOL I STAN FOR NO ONE. AND BEYONCE IS STILL GOING TO FLOP LOL.

        LOL you’re lying. You just typed all that in defence of Gargoyle. The caps lock ratchetness. Don’t try it.

    Glad Ryan Tedder is working with her again. TBH Halo (and to a lesser extent “I Was Here” is doing overtime in Beyoncé performances as the only song she can sing at classy events, benefits, tributes, etc. The rest of her catalog is (mostly) ratchet hood anthems (most of which I love!). Hopefully he can write her a huge hit that, like Halo, has some longevity and can be performed for years to come!

      Lies no its not. You people are funny I bet you don’t own ONE album since you’re saying that. She only has a few ratchet songs from B Day and IASF. No more than the likes of Rihanna.

      • Dreamlover November 15, 2013

        Haha Rihanna also certainly has her share as well. And I don’t think Rihanna has a “Halo” type of ballad that works in really classy settings yet. That’s something every major artist needs. “The Greatest Love of All” by Whitney, “Hero” by Mariah… you know, the timeless uplifting ballads.

      Stop exaggerating its not mostly that at all. Her hood songs are enjoyed that doesn’t mean it makes up her discography.

    • RICHIE_RICH November 15, 2013

      I beg to differ, Beyonce only as a few ratchet hood anthems, from BDay and IASF as ABC stated.

      i actually really liked that. it’s not really emotionally stirring, so i think a lot of people overlook it. but it’s certainly very beautiful and understated. it’s been a while since i listened to that. thanks!
