Exclusive: Beyonce plans new music

By Sarah Tetteh

Beyonce’s latest trip to London didn’t just spark a Renaissance, it seems it has inspired brand new music from the superstar. 

I can reveal the hardest working woman in the biz, who broke records with her epic Renaissance tour and movie, is already thinking about her next offerings – a venture into Afrobeats music. 

Queen Bey, who surprised fans when she flew into London for her Renaissance premiere, invited a host of African music stars and fashionistas, many from our neck of the woods, to the exclusive do where she partied alongside Taylor Swift and Blake Lively. 

A source told SLP’s Showbiz: “Beyonce will be working on Afrobeats music next. It was during her last trip to London where she was mixing with African creatives from the world of music and fashion that she was inspired to create more music from the motherland.  

“She’s planning on going to Africa to absorb the culture firsthand. She would love to go to Ghana, and explore the west coast soon. There is already a buzz about the continent about Beyonce coming over. Her fans can’t wait for her to arrive and will be welcoming her with open arms. 

It is no secret Beyonce loves the culture, music and dancing that originates from Africa, so fans can only imagine the impact it will have on her tunes.” 

Beyonce, 42, previously teamed up with some African creatives for her Black is King film in 2020, and has certainly got the appetite for more.  

The film celebrated a wide variety of African music, dances, traditions and hairstyles, not to mention incredible costumes. 

Perhaps she’ll be calling on her super-stylish mum Tina Knowles, who famously designed her Destiny’s Child costumes, for some input here. She’d love it! 

Beyonce said at the time of making the film, she wanted to show that ‘black is regal and rich in history, in purpose and in lineage.’ 

The Disney film was a follow-up to her Lion King: The Gift album and soundtrack for the remake The Lion King in 2019. 

It is not the first time a music giant has had a furore into Afrobeats music. Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, and Ed Sheeran have all been delving in and celebrating the genre with tracks that have gone viral. 

It has catapulted stars including Burna Boy, Tems, Davido, and Tiwa Savage firmly into the limelight – as Afrobeats continues to grow in popularity and fast becomes the ‘new pop music.’
