Beyoncé Crafts ‘Own Genre’ on New Album

Beyoncé

It’s no secret that Beyoncé is a work machine, but she isn’t resting on the accomplishments of 2008’s I Am… Sasha Fierce. While on set of a commercial for VIZIO, the pop diva gave an update on the follow-up to her smash release, sharing that she’s using live instruments to create a brand new genre.

“I’m actually in the studio now writing songs and producing,” she divulged between takes. “I have a lot of live instruments that I’m putting into the tracks to try to change the sound and make my own genre of music.”

Among her likely collaborators are Ne-Yo and Jim Jonsin, each of whom previously revealed that she was going out of the box on her fourth album. “It’s coming along nicely. I can’t speak too much on it, but it’s another direction for her, and she’s carving out her own niche,” said Ne-Yo. “In a minute nobody will be in Beyoncé’s lane. They really can’t get in her lane now, but they really can’t get in her lane after this album.”

Jonsin, who produced her hit “Sweet Dreams,” explained that he wanted to take B back to the ’80s with the addition of certain instruments. “I’d like to take it even more Depeche Mode-ish, like ’80s electro with just some hard drums. I’d love to go there,” he told Rap-Up TV.

Though you’ll have to wait until next year to get a new album from the singing sensation, Beyoncé is tiding fans over with the release of her full-length concert DVD/CD (Nov. 30), which is set to premiere with a 90-minute special on Thanksgiving night on ABC (Nov. 25, 9:30-11 p.m.).

    If she can make her own SOUND thats never been heard before. and it sell. Then she’ll 4ever be in music history.. Only two artist have done that is. MJ and MJB.. MJB started hiphop and rnb mixed 2gether in duets..

    I cant wait but since she said that my expectations are going to be very high i dont not one song that is similar to anything i have ever heard b4 i want fresh music that no one ever did b4 just as she is claiming if she dont do this then she #failed

  14. ...

    How pretentious can you get? I mean, really. If she was doing something completely different from the other stuff she’s released, awesome, but she’s creating a new genre? Really?

    Nothing about her career has been musically groundbreaking. Insanely successful, absolutely, but creative, new, exciting? No, ma’am.

    @marcus dont forget mariah carey she started the pop and hip hop callbo movement.i hope she knows what she is going up against for this album since she said that omg i cant wait to hear it i hope she succeeds!!!

    LMFAO. She’s not going to create her on genre. There’s nothing new under the sun. I actually hate hearing singers talk about their album. It never lives up to what they’re saying.

    If beyoncé is the “best of this generation” then the music world is definitely lost. Some people need to learn music history before saying such bulls*it.

  31. mr. minaj

    Love beyonce, but to date she hasn’t released an “album”, a cohesive single body of work. She is an incredible performer and has some of the best singles of the past decade, but there isn’t an album I can say was amazing, with the exception of Dangerously in Love. Will watch for her new album tho.

    [Reply]

  32. Melanie

    Ok I think Beyonce is so talented and can sing her tail off but lets be honest, all her cd’s have pretty much sounded the same; and didn’t she say that she was “creating a new sound” like 2 CD’s ago?
    Again i know I will buy her album because she can sing but just be real B, be real.

    Ahh, did anybody else see THAT BODY??!!! (O:09-0:13)

    Anyway, back to subject at hand: the genre-creating. I think Bey is one of the most amazing artists to touch this surface of this Earth; like, no artist is better than her to me…PERIOD!! But, with that being said, I’m not so sure about this “new genre” she’s trying to make. Nobody’s “original” these days; all anybody does is recycle other people’s styles and throws in their own stuff to produce different, yet slightly-the-same songs that constitutes today’s music. Does she do it the best?? That’s for you to decide. I personally think she does do it the best, but the point is, no matter how original or creative her music is, she’s still doing it.

    I can’t imagine her shakin’ her ass any harder, singing any louder or more annoyingly or steal anybody else style or song can you? SMH..there is nothing groundbreaking about Beyonce. I support her music but she never does anything special..

  38. JDR

    @PKDH Obviously you havent seen her live because she’s an amazing performer and a great singer
    She has 16 grammy’s which is the most for a female of THIS generation..and Grammy awards are about the quality of the music not the sells…SO YOUR UPSET CAUSE SHE’S UNTOUCHABLE

    I’m so worried… 80′s electro sounds like a bad thing she is like the only rnb singer who can make super good rnb music and pop. But if she goes electro will it be like only girl in the world style?……. I hope not…

  55. uu

    GOD KNOWS I LOVE ME SO BEYONCE, so im definetely excited for this one…even though i feel like her next album wont be anything “new” i will cop nonetheless…only thing i dont like is the fact that acts as if she writes her songs…im not saying she hasnt cowritten a song before but 90% of her music was not written by her…she likes to add her credits to songs…and if you don’t believe me look up the controversy around her and songwriter BC jean

    Uhh…like someone already said, what is new about adding a life band in the recording studio?

    I just hope she comes with the genre she started with. RnB, like ”Dangerously In Love” or ”B-day”.
