From the looks of it, '4' is shaping up to be heavy in the love song department with tracks like 'I Miss You,' 'I Care,' 'Best Thing I Never Had' and the ballad '1 + 1,' which she premiered on the American Idol finale last night. The album's only feature comes courtesy of Andre 3000, who makes an appearance on the track 'Party,' produced by Kanye West and Consequence.
The 29-year-old has been hitting up plenty of stages recently performing her current single 'Who Run The World (Girls).' Although the song has yet to top the Billboard Charts, fans have responded positively to the video, which has been viewed over 23 million times on YouTube. As previously reported, the multi-Grammy winner was accused of stealing the concept of her show-stopping performance at the Billboard Music Awards from another artist but has since cleared up the misunderstanding.
"My makeup artist showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much," Beyonce told AOL Music. "I then met with the talented people who worked on it. The technology and concept were so genius. Thank god for YouTube or I would have never been exposed to something so inspiring. I never worked so hard on anything in my life as that performance for the Billboard Awards."
Fans can pre-order Beyonce's '4' album on iTunes now, while the official release date is June 28.
