News have arisen about Beyoncé’s new album, in which is set to be her best album yet says our insider, who tells us the new LP which will have a retro vibe but with a new twist and spin on all types of genres.
A while back the singer talked to MTV in an interview and said :
“I’m mixing every type of genre that I love and I’m inspired by every type of genre. I’m not in a box. It’s not R&B. It’s not typically pop. It’s not rock. It’s just everything I love all mixed together in my own little gumbo of music”.
The singer says that quite a motley crew of musicians have inspired the album: “Definitely Fela Kuti, the Stylistics. How random, right?” she laughed. “So many people … Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, of course, Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall … all of those things I’m kind of mixing together”
With all this excitement surrounding this new LP, it sure seems to be the one that will define her as an artist of many genres.With the producer’s such as Sean Garret spilling the beans around town about the first single being a monster anthem, I’m sure it’s bound to be a banger.
