Beyonce Working on Her Fifth Studio Album
After giving birth to her first child in January, Beyonce is ready to get back to the studio. The R&B diva has reportedly started working on her fifth album, the follow-up to her 2011 release, ’4.’
According to The Sun, the 30-year-old star is currently holed up in a New York studio with producers Hit-Boy and Kanye West. Bey has taken every precaution to make sure demos aren’t leaked, even renting the entire complex to prevent illicit recordings.
“She’s spent thousands hiring out the whole studios,” a source told the newspaper. “She’s got security on the doors to ensure no one hears a whisper. She’s being strict with proceedings too, putting in 14-hour days and declaring nobody leaves until it’s perfect.”
In the meantime, Beyonce is taking a stand on World Humanitarian Day, donating a video of herself performing ‘I Was Here’ in the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live audience. The video will premiere on World Humanitarian Day, Aug. 19.
The singer is also reportedly set to direct and star in a documentary about her life, which will mix live concert footage with revealing interviews.
