Many Beyonce fans are currently foaming at the mouth for new music, while the rest of the world gets ready to hear those simple hooks and over produced songs again. Either way, as I reported, B's two singles, "If I Were A Boy" and "Single Ladies" were supposed to drop on October 7th. Well, someone actually had the balls to stop Papa Knowles from dropping his daughter's album whenever he feels like it.
If you can recall, Beyonce's 'B-Day' album was never supposed to be. Beyonce had stated many times that after filming "Dream Girls" she was going to take a break, seeing as she did a solo album, Destiny's Child album and a few movies back to back. Then LaToya Luckett announced that she would drop and album in August of 2006. Matthew Knowles was pretty much pissed that the former DC member was actually generating buzz. All of a sudden 'Dream Girls' wrapped, and Beyonce was in Miami recording her second album within a month, and "B-Day" was slated to drop on Beyonce's Birthday in September. Unfortunately for Kelly Rowland, her album had to go on hold because of Beyonce. It happened just when her single "(Bump) Like This" was hot. Leading to Kelly's lackluster sales and Wal-Mart release of a repackaged "Deluxe" version.
However, this time the less known DC member, Michelle Williams will get her way. Beyonce's two singles will be pushed back until October 14th. Apparently Williams was not happy that she would have the same release date as her spotlight chasing band mate. Now Williams' "UneExpected" will have a whole week before B's "Virtuoso Sasha" album drops on November 18th, 2008.
