New Beyonce Album To Drop This Year?

Published: Friday 23rd Oct 2015 by David

As Universal Music prepares to be thrown into the shadows by rival Sony Music and their leading lady Adele a new report suggests that the label may also be forced to deal with a new album from….Beyonce.

Speculation below…

UMG are reportedly on the cusp of releasing Rihanna‘s hotly anticipated set ‘ANTI’ in a matter of weeks and will no doubt have to tailor its campaign to take Adele‘s press and chart dominance return into consideration.

Now, a report by the reliable industry publication HITS Daily Double may be the first sign of a life in Sony’s reported plan to deliver a second blow to its rival by unleashing a new Beyonce LP this year.

Read the carefully worded piece below:

How do the expected Q4 releases from Columbia’s Beyoncé, Roc Nation’s RihannaDef Jam’s Kanye WestParlophone’s Coldplay all with release dates TBD, fit into the picture? Beyoncé will debut at #1 no matter when her album drops, apart from 11/20; otherwise, Adele is a heavy favorite to hold the top spot through the rest of the year. There appear to be two or three windows—Dec. 4, 11 and possibly the 18th—and the prognosticators believe a first week of 300k could knock Adele off the top perch.

Considering their respective sales histories, Beyoncé and Coldplay have shown they can hit or surpass the magic number, while Rihanna’s previous five releases have averaged just under 200k, and Kanye’s track record is too erratic to make a call one way or the other. If Beyoncé’s album makes it this year, it will almost certainly crush the others, while Coldplay would outperform Rihanna and Kanye. And although Kanye is not hot record-wise, he should still outsell Rihanna, whose forthcoming album has no vibe yet.

Fans are already aware that Mrs. Carter has been studio-bound crafting an Urban-leaning follow up to 2013’s ‘Beyonce‘, but may not be aware that a quarter four release from her would mark the first time she’d go head to head with Rihanna.

The ladies’ personal business ties have seen them avoid album release dates that would see them clash, but that may soon change if ‘Yonce decides to keep with her tradition of freeing new music every two or three years.

2001 – ‘Survivor’

2003- ‘Dangerously in Love’

2004 – ‘Destiny Fulfilled’

2006 – ‘B’Day’

2008 – ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’

2011 – ‘4’

2013 – ‘Beyonce.’

2015- ?

      • bash October 23, 2015

        Contrary to popular belief that would not be her goal…

  5. Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 23, 2015

    I am not one the delusional BEY stans, that think she should release the same time as ADELEPHANT..BAD MOVE. Either in December or sometime next year.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 23, 2015


    • kiiiii October 23, 2015

      I love Bey but she stands no chance especially with the holiday season sales Adele is going to gain

    • m1ssie October 25, 2015

      Lmfao Adelephant?! Good one.

  6. truthtea October 23, 2015

    If true, she’s only setting herself up for embarrassment! Adele owns the rest of 2015 and all of 2016!

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 23, 2015

      Agreed, she should either release in December or next year….

  8. .::Centurion::. October 23, 2015

    Nope. There’s no way Columbia records is putting both Beyonce and Adele out at the same time, unless they want 4closure teas back to permanently kill off that aging 36-year-old sIut, which I would be here for. I’m black, but they can use racial tendencies if they have to. 🙂

    But the shade at the them saying every one will outsell RIHJECT…I CAN’T

  10. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 23, 2015

    She better step forward and deliver another “***Flawless”. Yes, indeed! I just hope her next era has singles that chart much better than her previous era. There’s no reason why a Beyonce single should be on the Bubbling Under chart.

  11. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 23, 2015


    My favorite season! “These are a few of my favorite things!”

  12. janvier October 23, 2015

    Lol who wrote this???? Hits double daily about the nazii die of anger and rage. They are the only ones still in denial of their faves upcoming flop era and declining career. Please no shade but every should pray sincerely for R8(ANTi) including the hive, blue college fund still needed lol.

  13. Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

    The SHAAAAAADE in this article. ????????I’ve been saying this too! Lmfaooo Hopefully Beyonce will be releasing soon. December seems reasonable as we’re approaching two years since self titled!! Everything is pointing that way though! Q4 will be an exciting time in music!!! I cane feel it.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 23, 2015


      • Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

        Wow!! I just saw the chart!! Lmfaooooo $10 million with seven albums, Katy perry @ 6 million with three albums and of course Beyonce at over 15 Million with only five albums.

  14. raj October 23, 2015

    columbia records are not going to release two big projects at the same time. cos either way they will be at loss. as both artist on their lable

  15. Theman October 23, 2015

    She will get swallowed up by Adele. There is JB, One D, Carrie, 5S0S, Andrea Boceli, Enya & etc. She’ll sale well too, in her realm, but without a huge single, she needs something creative again. They are all in different genres, but it’s a ton of music being released.

  16. Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

    I would love a new album in December.I’ve been getting my life to this a lot lately tho!! She is so amazing on stage!????????

    • Bey Is Grown October 23, 2015

      I hardly comment on here because of stans but no one touches Bey on stage #Period.

      • Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

        I know!! Her presence alone just commands attention and respect. She gets a lot of hate but she is my ultimate fave. Been a fan since i was eleven????????

    • coolness October 23, 2015

      This performance is still everything!!! One of her best in recent memory and that’s something to take note of considering how consistent she is as a performer. It took me back to her ‘B’Day’ era days when she had these somewhat loose, jam-session style performances that were full of brassy vocals and lots of energy. She lost herself in this one and it was a great way to silence critics after they tried to discredit her a week prior with the whole ‘Precious Lord’ Grammy debacle.

  17. Bey Is Grown October 23, 2015

    Beyoncè will slay if she releases, everyone is anticipating her album since the surprise album. Hopefully she goes the same route as B’day album and gives us uptempos and I wish she’d experiment on a song or two.

    • Anne October 23, 2015

      I think she should do another double disc like IASF or maybe even a trio. Beyoncé has too much versatility and diverse appeal for one disc.

  18. BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

    Slay me b****!!! Also at the people saying Adele will slayher… Im sure Beyoncé can snatch 3 or 4 weeks at #1 from Adele.

  19. Anne October 23, 2015

    Bring it on Bey! Always ready for new Beyoncé material.

  20. shakira stan October 23, 2015

    Lol befakence’s fans might be delusional but I don’t think she is .Releasing the same time as Adele is a career suicide .

  21. Unbiased Swiftie October 23, 2015


    BeyTHIEFce’ is a tasteless, thieving, she-demon whom for the past three years has only managed to stay relevant by releasing a surprise pornography album where the majority of the lyrics were about being nutted on and then patting her c*nt on stage in the same dusty-ass leotards and suspenders she’s been rocking since ’03 although now they appear to be in assorted colors.

    BeyTHIEFce can only dream about having an album sell in gargantuan numbers like Adele or. Adele’s ’21’ album outsold BeyTHIEFce’s entire album discography, both domestically [U.S.A] and internationally, and that was just one with one release. Rihanna is THE GLOBAL POP STAR of our generation and is still young and has YEARS ahead of her to continue to slay in sales and ANTI WILL SLAYYY!!!

    If she hopes to sell decently she better release her album by surprise AGAIN in hopes of even having a top 3 spot in the BB200. BeyTHIEFCE better wait until 2018!!! KIIIIIIII.

    • BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

      21 outsold rihanna’s discography too and also katy perry’s and lady gaga’s. So shutup hating b****!!

    • BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

      Every major artist expected to release this winter has sold at least 350k+ in first week sales…… Except Rihslüt. So if anyone should be worried about not scoring a #1 album (2nd #1 out of 8 albums ????) it should be Rihslüt. Idc how well Beyoncé’s singles do; what she does well is slay tf out of the BB 200 and your fave needs to catch up because judging this era she might not ever be able to crack 300k. ????????????

    • Diego October 23, 2015

      Agree bey stans act like she doing Adele numbers lol sad all those long nights in dance studio sweating in leotards dancing on stage half naked and adel can stay fully dressed loll

  22. LB October 23, 2015

    Lmao, Giselle works on Sony’s schedule whereas Rihanna is her own boss.

    Columbia is spending their entire budget on Adele, they’ll be no Giselle album this year.
    Rihanna on the other hand can release whenever she wants.
    One is still a s**** after 20 years, the other has achieved in 10 years what took Giselle’s husband 20, and it looks like it’ll take Giselle 30 years to achieve that.

    • LB October 23, 2015


      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 23, 2015

        But why did they shade her like that tho??? LOL….even KANYE west without a No 1 singles is already predicted to outsell her..LOL

  23. Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

    “Beyonce took a big risk in dropping her self-titled album on iTunes late last week without any pre-release promotion, and it’s now abundantly clear that the bold move paid off. The singer’s camp tells The Huffington Post that “Beyoncé” sold 828,773 copies over the weekend, a massive take made even more impressive by the fact that the album was an iTunes exclusive for the duration of that period.
    The album was the fastest-selling to ever hit iTunes and sold 617,213 copies domestically. Featuring collaborations from Drake, Frank Ocean and Beyoncé’s husband and daughter Jay Z and Blue Ivy, the LP is a huge boost for Sony. Beyonce’s tally will be the highest for a woman since Taylor Swift’s “Red” sold 1.2 million copies in November 2012. The final first-week figure will also be Beyonce’s personal best, topping 2006’s “B’day,” which sold 541,000 in its first week. “Beyoncé” went No. 1 in 104 countries.
    Billboard reported earlier that “Beyoncé” moved 80,000 copies in its first three hours on iTunes. Sales are helped by the fact that the 14-track album (which comes with 17 videos) is only available as a single $15.99 purchase — songs are not available for individual purchase until Dec. 20.
    In a press release that followed the surprise drop, Beyonce said the move was in part motivated by a desire to not repeat the traditional album promo cycle. “I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it,” she said. “I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”
    Queen Bey.”

      But your fav hasn’t sold shiiit while owning her own master’s. So bragging about her owning them is hilarious because at this point it literally means shiiit!! When she can sell a couple million albums and $1 singles while holding her Master’s than ya can talk. Until then sit down and shut the fuxk up!

  28. LB October 23, 2015

    They are talking about first week sales in the USA, which everyone including the navy knows Rihanna isn’t strong in.
    With that said, Rihanna always goes on to platinum success, Iron clad gangatuan HITS and global album sales and success.
    My fav has a diversified market, Giselle does not.

      If you’re talking about David he’s dark caramel and has an american football player’s body and maybe about 5’11. I really wanted to talk to him but he was turning up in his section and i didn’t wanna look like i was being thirsty because i think he was with Omari dixon.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 23, 2015

        Damn! He has it like that? Girl, I’m mad at you for not snatching what’s rightfully yours. Go get your man and be happy before someone steals him from you. You know how them ATL h*** are, thirsty for attention and don’t give two f***s if he’s gay or not. They’re used to fighting over bisexual, closeted/DL men down there. No tea, but ATL has lots of femme queens and not enough masculine wolves.

  42. King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

    People can’t read, they’re talking first week. Rihanna sell just as much albums as Beyonce, way more albums than Janet and we’ll see how Adele dose this time around. Only one girl proved that she can do it over and over and over again and that is Taylor. Rihanna has the widest WW marketing than all the other artist that were named. (Rihanna even sold well in the UK, Adele’s home, unlike Beyonce past two albums.)

    • BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

      Umm 31 million with 5 albums>>>> 29 million with 7. Also since when has Rihanna sold more albums than Janet? Most likely Rihanna will not be getting her 2nd #1 album this era if she releases around the time Adele, Beyoncé, Beiber, 1D, and Kanye release because they ALL outsell her first week.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

        Rihanna sold over 35 to 40 million albums Nice try. It was even 120 million records and 30 million album album in 2012.
        IF you’re going to reply to me, please proof read, because I can’t understand anything that you’re TRYING to say. #AndIThankYou

  43. King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

    Rihanna whole career shows that you don’t need to hit #1 to kick the others @ss. But we’ll see, this reminds me of 2013 gaga vs katy. Gotta remember, Adele and Rihanna are young, 10 years younger than Beyonce. If both are outselling and selling just as much, then thay only shows that your fave is on a decline. And I’m sure the gp are tired of seeing her, whay she going to do? Add more trap music to her same old live shows?

    • DL f** slayer October 23, 2015

      Rihanna and Adele are not ten years younger than Beyonce. The reach to make rihanna seem so young when she’s nearly 30 in two years. Beyonce will be fine. Rihanna is the one struggling to find a release date after 3 years of releasing singles. The GP isn’t tired of Beyonce. She doesn’t overexpose herself or promote these days. A live performance of new music or a sit down interview would break the internet. You’re mad f**.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

        Adele is 26 or 27 and Rihanna is 27. While Beyonce is 36 or 38 (one or then other according to HER FATHER.)

    • coolness October 23, 2015

      As far as I’m concerned, Rih seems to be the one who’s a** is in trouble seeing that she released her first single all the way back in January and three other underwhelming singles later, she has no release date as of 23rd October 2015. The ONLY thing Rihanna sells better than Bey is SINGLES and considering how well those do (or did), how come she hasn’t been able to scan at least double platinum since 2007 seeing that singles are actually promotional tools for albums? Oh and you STAY taking L’s by being a RIHANNA fan having the AUDACITY to come for Bey’s live performances. Why are Bey’s shows ‘same old’ and MJ, Janet, CB, Usher and Ciara’s aren’t? After all, they are artists who developed signature performance styles that the fans would be pressed af if said artists all of a sudden abandoned? Please leave the critiquing of the art of live performances to those who’s favs actually have the talent for it.

  44. Keri Qween October 23, 2015

    Just like self titled had all those front loaded sales and stalled at 3.8 worldwide she should’ve done Adele or Taylor Swift numbers with all the hype and front loaded sales from the porno album

  45. BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

    Rihanna’s career shows that she needs a #1 to sell her damn albums. The fact that someone who is 10 years older than your fave and has been in the game for 20 years, is constantly being compared to her and the popstars of the generation after her shows that she has LONGEVITY. You dont see that in Xtina, Britney, Gaga, Jlo, Shakira, Ciara and all of the other popstars who can’t scan 200-300k with new albums. The fact that “fading pop icon Beyoncé” last album outsold “global pop icon rihanna” last album shows how relevant she is today.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

      You’re wrost than fox news. When Rihanna can sit right next to a woman she once called her idol shows the hard work and the amazing career Rihanna has. None of her peers are being copared to artist that “been in the game for 20 years). Jay Z (Beyonce’s c um fountain) said that she did in 10 years what took him 13 years to do and what your fave still haven’t done in 20 years.
      You tired to twist it, but the fact that your fave is always being copared to a “singles artist” shows that she’s no queen and can’t even stand with the other pop girls. “She’s R&B”, save it, Beyonce has been pop snce Survivor.

      • BEY>RIH October 23, 2015

        I guess I’m going to have to break it down to this delusional, sexually confused f**. The reason why she is always being “compared” to rihanna is because them along with nicki are the only RELEVANT, sucessful black female artists in popular music right now. Your fave can’t release her album after 3 singles, 10 years into her career. Yet my fave is “fading”. It’s so useless arguing with you titanics… I’ll be back when “Black Madonna” releases her “Ray of Light”.????????

    • coolness October 23, 2015

      THANK YOU! Bey started off as part of a girl group in the 90s, became a viable solo act in the 2000s and is certified Pop culture staple in the 2010s. Her peers who were actually shifting more units than her in the past (see Xtina , Britney and Alicia) are all struggling now whereas she’s still out here doing the damn thing.

    Is bey any amout of money Adele sells more 1st week in the states than ANTIprispirant Sales in all. The only song off Anti that is good (ennuff) and actually has vibe or holds any weight is HIGHER and maybe james joint and that’s not even a real songs. Rihs last albums has hits to get them above 150k. Antiprisperant will be lucky to debut 100k. Adele will sale a minimum of 500 k easy.

    I live when the Navy rushes to pull 27182974389 excuses in defense against reality.
    They look pathetic… hell a flop is a flop, that girl will flop and still be able to work… look at Ciara, Still booking contracts and making music.
