With Beyonce pregnant with her first baby with husband Jay Z, will this pregnancy affect the release of her long-awaited album, her follow-up to the smash 2008 record “I Am … Sasha Fierce?” Just last month, producer Los Da Mystro tweeted that Beyonce’s new single, written by The Dream, would be released in three weeks.
But it’s been three weeks, and no single. Could that be because mom-to-be Beyonce has had other things vying for her attention, like prenatal checkups and morning sickness?
Beyonce’s label has not commented on rumors of when her new album will drop. There is absolutely no date set. But we do know that Ne Yo, Jim Jonsin and Sean Garrett have written songs for it, and that the first single will be from The Dream, who collaborated with Beyonce and Tricky Stewart on one of my absolute favorite songs, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” (I know, me and 2 million other people.)
Those of us who have been pregnant know that it wipes you out, so finishing up the album and promoting it could prove exhausting. Plus, once the little one arrives, will Beyonce have time to tour, or will she take some time off?
Beyonce has said before that she wanted to concentrate on her career before she got pregnant – guess she’s about to find out, like so many of us, that you can balance both!
