BET BeyWatch: Countdown to New Beyoncé Album

A daily (slightly obsessive) update on new music from you-know-who.

Published April 14, 2016

Today in BET BeyWatch: Beyoncé’s Ivy Park athletic line hit retail stores today. We knew people would be lining up at dawn to get inside and that’s exactly what happened at Topshop in London. Beyoncé is once again dominating the entertainment news cycle. Which makes now the perfect time to strike.

Last known Beyoncé sighting: Although she hasn’t been spotted, It is VERY likely that Beyoncé is in Tampa right now. A little birdie tells us that Jay Z visited the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weight room earlier this week. We hear Jay was in town because Beyoncé needed to come to Tampa to prepare for her April 29 concert. Perhaps she’s putting finishing touches on the album at a nearby Tampa studio? We need the Hive to get in formation at 6911 Sheldon Road in Tampa. That’s the address of the Red Lounge Recording Studio, one of the best studios in the area.

Oh. And remember what we said yesterday? We said if Bey and Jay were not at Kobe Bryant’s last game, that would be all the proof we need to know that new music is not far away. Well… Jay Z was at the game last night — but no Beyoncé. What could be more important than seeing Kobe’s last game? Hmmm…

Also, please note: April is half over and there hasn’t been a single confirmed Beyoncé sighting. In March, she was spotted at least five times.

Also note: Gwyneth Paltrow recently told a journalist that she knew about Beyoncé’s 2013 surprise album and had even seen some of the videos before the release. Let’s keep an eye on Ms. Paltrow. If Beyoncé is cooking up something, her bestie Gwynnie knows.

Numerology Evaluation: We’re still in the fourth month. Beyond that, we’re all tapped out. April 1, 4 and 14 all went by with not so much as a peep. April 24, maybe?

Percentage Chance that new album will drop today: 25 percent. MIA at Kobe’s game. No confirmed sighting of her or Blue. She’s hunkering down for something.

Until tomorrow, this is BET BeyWatch.
