The new album is called "4." Aside from this being your fourth solo album, what significance does that number hold?

We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. It's the day I was born. My mother's birthday, and a lot of my friends' birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.

Bit unexpected :o
Also from that article..

How did the creative process begin with the new body of work?

I recorded more than 60 songs: everything I ever wanted to try, I just did it. I started off being inspired by [Afrobeat music pioneer] Fela Kuti. I actually worked with the band from "Fela!" [the hit Broadway musical based on his life] for a couple of days, just to get the feel for the soul and heart of his music; it's so sexy, and has a great groove you get lost in. I loved his drums, all the horns, how everything was on the one. What I learned most from Fela was artistic freedom: he just felt the spirit. I also found a lot of inspiration in '90s R&B, Earth, Wind & Fire, DeBarge, Lionel Richie, Teena Marie... I listened to a lot of Jackson 5 and New Edition, but also Adele, Florence + the Machine, and Prince. Add in my hip-hop influences, and you can hear how broad it is. I also gave myself more freedom to really belt out some songs, and bring soul singing back: I used a lot of the brassiness and grittiness in my voice that people hear in my live performances, but not necessarily on my records.

I hate those titles! Otherwise, the meaning behind it is good! Not only the fact that this is her 4th soloalbum, but for some more reasons...

I'm actually happy she is not doing the whole electro-techno trend:

B is not one to follow. Im looking forward to a purely Urban album for once.

Can we place bets on how long we think this thread will be? :lol: I say at least 1000 pages....

I love the cover, and I love the fact that Beyoncé will be belting and adding soul to some of her songs on her new album. I can't wait :)

Yeah i definitely feel like that too! Very interested to see what she will bring this time around! :) Though i just feel like the album wont come out this summer! :-? But of course it will come out this summer if they move onto the 2nd single quickly and don't give Run The World long on the charts before they move on! :wink:

I want to be on the first page of this project too.

Interesting album title...much better than "I Am...Sasha Fierce", and "B'Day".
