Can we expect some new Beyoncé material soon?
Good news Beyoncé fans, the R&B wonder woman is "definitely" expected to unveil new tracks from her forthcoming fifth solo album ahead of her Superbowl halftime performance.
In an interview with Billboard, The-Dream (Terius Nash) revealed that he is involved with "every part of the process" and hinted at the singer's excitement to make her comeback after a short break, swapping recording for family life. "She took the summer to start recording… I'm sure there will be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."
A release of a new single may well be becoming somewhat of a Super Bowl tradition, as Beyoncé follows the trend set by artists such as Madonna, of releasing a track in the days approaching the big game.
No surprise that Beyoncé is also reported to have worked with 'hubby's best friend' Kanye West, as well as producer Hit-Boy . The R&B singer's autobiographical documentary will also air on February 15th on American channel HBO.

But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender." [read more]
