*During an interview with 97.9 The Beat in Dallas, K. Michelle said the new album from Beyoncé is dropping tonight (March 25), and she knows this because her manager and Beyonce’s manager are friends.
If true, it will be Bey’s sixth studio album, and a follow up to her other surprise album “Beyonce.”
Meanwhile, OK Magazine is reporting that Bey’s album is also part of some larger friction on the home front with her husband Jay Z.
The outlet is quoting “an insider” who claims Bey’s Parkwood Entertainment management company (launched in 2008) had a lot of projects on deck when she decided to put them all on hold to start a family. Following the 2012 birth of Blue Ivy, Beyoncé has been “going into overdrive” when it comes to taking Parkwood to the next level – which apparently has Jay Z concerned.
“There is a lot of jealousy right now between Beyoncé and Jay Z because her career is at a super high point and, unfortunately, Jay Z has been relatively stagnant in his own career in comparison,” the insider said.
Per OK Magazine:
The duo appeared to be in a good place when they were spotted attending the funeral of Beyoncé’s uncle Skip in Houston, Texas, on March 19. But the pressure seems to be weighing heavily on the couple privately, seeing that another source revealed to RadarOnline.com that the two were acting very “detached” during a dinner party that same weekend.
“They had a private dinner on Saturday for about ten people consisting of their inner circle, family and business partners,” the source said. “They could hardly have been more detached!”
“Beyoncé and Jay Z barely spoke two words to each other the entire evening. She complained about the food that he had catered, and said that it was not her people that had made the meal,” the source said, adding that the situation then got even worse! “But Jay Z was very dismissive to Beyoncé all night long and had disappeared before all of the guests had left. Beyoncé was left to wrap up the soiree on her own.”
