Beyonce Finishes Recording Fifth Album, First Single Confirmed?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Beyonce fifth album finished? Beyonce is without a doubt one of music’s biggest stars, but the singer has had many speculating on the status of her upcoming studio album. As we reported recently, some industry insiders were claiming the singer was having quite a bit of trouble coming up with music for her fifth album and a producer had many thinking the album had been scrapped completely because he confirmed the songs he did for her were scrapped. Beyonce’s publicist eventually shut down the rumor and told the media Beyonce was in fact still recording the album and it had not been scrapped completely. However, when asked if a release date had been set, the publicist said no date had been established.
Interestingly enough, Beyonce caused quite a stir when she was said to be recording a music video at Coney Island, and a woman even claimed the singer is the reason she was reportedly stuck on the Ferris wheel ride for thirty minutes. The woman was angry and told the New York Post she demanded an apology from Beyonce, but a representative from the theme park hit Urban Belle on Twitter and confirmed the woman was lying and no surveillance camera footage could back up her claims.
It turns out the music video shooting is confirmation that Beyonce is on track to release her album soon and a source tells the YBF that as of now, Beyonce is finished recording her fifth album. Although the source did not confirm when Beyonce will be dropping the highly anticipated record, the source did inform the blog that the video she was recording was for one of her upcoming singles entitled “XO.” Matter of fact, there’s a new photo from one of Beyonce’s recent shows in which the singer and her audience can be seen holding up their arms in the shape of an X and O. So all signs point to “XO” being released soon.
The source also claims the album name has also been decided on as well. Are you ready for a new album from Bey?
