Beyonce Knowles' New Album Almost Complete? According to Producer Pharrell Williams, Yes
Newly married producer/songwriter Pharrell Williams is assisting the bodacious and phenomenal Beyonce Knowles-Carter with her new album, and he says that her album is almost finished, but that doesn't mean that it's ready to be released... said just days after a Columbia Record executive stated that Beyonce's album would be out in December of 2013
Williams' statement discounts the executive's claim, while his disclosure that the album is nearly complete supports it. It's Beyonce that may not be ready for the album's release, as she's busy, tweaking and perfecting different elements on the album, which will meet fans or stands until it meets Bey's high standards.
Though, Williams couldn't share when he thought Beyonce would be ready for the album's release, he did make confessions about the sound of the album and what it's like to work with the star.
In his interview with Billboard, he said, "B's album is crazy. Let me tell you what it is...She's very particular. She's a Virgo. And she's not going to put it out until it's ready and feels like it's right to her."
"She's got a very specific taste," he continued. "I guess that's the reason she's Beyoncé. Her name is recognizable around the globe and that's huge. That comes from someone that has very particular taste. When you know what you want, you won't stop until you get it. Other people are hearing her album and are like 'Whoa!' And, she's like, 'Yeah, I'm almost done.' And she's the queen."
Updates about the unnamed album were prompted when Diplo tweeted that Beyonce had "scrapped" the record, but it turned out that he was only referring to one track. The upcoming album will be Beyonce's fifth studio album as an independent artist. And, this album is preceded by the triumphantly successful albums, Dangerously In Love (2006), B'Day (2006), I Am...Sasha Fierce (2008) and 4 (2011). She also released four studio albums as a part of the super trio Destiny Child, as well as a Christmas album and a few remix albums.
