The Beyonce rumor mill is in full swing again after OneRepublic front-man Ryan Tedder recently spilled during an Australian radio interview that he’s done a song with The-Dream (“Single Ladies”) for Bey’s new album that is both “bigger” and “better” than his Grammy Award winning track, “Halo.” That’s a pretty bold claim, but I guess we’ll have to take his word for it, as he also stated that he has no idea what’s going on with the album or when we might finally get to hear new music.
It’s hard to get excited about this news. For all we know, Ryan and The-Dream merely pitched this song to Bey’s people, we have no idea if she’s actually recorded it. Something tells me that a decade from now, when Beyonce’s album is finally released, the demo for this supposedly “bigger” and “better” track will be collecting dust in a studio waste bin somewhere. That is, until Leona Lewis gallops along and scoops it up.
No word yet on new music from Beyonce, but she’s been very busy lately, what with her ongoing The Mrs. Carter Show world tour and countless video shoots for music we’ll probably never get to hear. It must be tough being the world’s biggest, mostly silent pop star.
