Beyonce’s new album will ‘feel good’

Beyonce’s new LP will be a “feel-good” album according to her longtime collaborator, music producer The-Dream.

The singer is working on her fifth solo record and her longtime collaborator The-Dream is back on board for the project.

Speaking on US television show RapFix Live, the Single Ladies songwriter teased fans with a small offering of what they can expect from Beyonce’s next list of tracks.

"There's no particular sound that I think we're shooting for, we're just trying to make music that feels good," he said.

The-Dream also praised his colleague and friend for opening up in her recent HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream.

The film, narrated by Beyonce, featured entries from her private video diaries and behind-the-scenes footage from rehearsals and shows. It also gave fans a never-before-seen glimpse into her private life as the wife of rapper Jay-Z and mother to their now one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

The-Dream said he's helping Beyonce to inject the honesty she delivered in the movie into her music.

He said the pair have been “talking about doing something that showcases who she is and what she wants because we see those figures that are so out of the stratosphere”.

"She's just shooting to be regular and OK and not trying to appease everybody," he explained.

The producer also touched on Beyonce’s shattering Super Bowl performance earlier this month.

Shortly after she left the stage, the New Orleans Superdome suffered from a partial blackout that forced the American football game into a timeout.

The-Dream said fans can expect the same kind of in-your-face energy when they listen to her next record.

"She gives her all onstage as you seen in the Super Bowl. She shut the lights down,” The-Dream joked [sic].

Beyonce is heading out on her next international tour, The Mrs. Carter Show, on April 15 in Belgrade.

The trek will end in Brooklyn, New York on August 3.
