Harper's Bazar called on some of entertainment's heavyweights to bid Beyonce' a Happy 40th birthday!
In a earlier interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Beyonce revealed she’s been busy recording new material and, it’s on the way.
“I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half,” she said. “Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!”
“With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again,” she continued. “I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible.”
The project will serve as the follow-up to her critically acclaimed Lemonade, which won the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album in 2017. It has since been certified triple platinum.
Beyoncé made history as she became a 28-time Grammy-winning artist!
At the 63rd Grammy Awards Beyonce became the most awarded singer in Grammy history after winning Best R&B Performance for her single "Black Parade."
"I am so honored. I am so excited," She said in her acceptance speech. "As an artist, I believe it's my job, and all of our jobs, to reflect the times, and it's been such a difficult time, so I wanted to uplift, encourage and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world. This is so overwhelming. I've been working my whole life, since [I] was nine-years-old. And I can't believe this happened. It's such a magical night. Thank you so much."
Beyoncé is now tied with Quincy Jones for the second-most Grammy wins with 28 Grammys, while conductor Georg Solti holds the record with 31 Grammys, on the night she won Best Rap Song for the Megan Thee Stallion remix of "Savage" Best Rap Performance for "Savage" and Best Music Video for "Brown Skin Girl."
Nine-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, also won for Best Music Video, making her the second-youngest winner in the history of the awards.
