BET BeyWatch: The Countdown to a New Beyoncé Album

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

Published April 19, 2016

Today In BET BeyWatch: Today, we’re focusing on Kahlil Joseph, the filmmaker who is rumored to be the director of what is being called Beyoncé’s “album film.” [Quick question: What the heck is an album film?] Kahlil is super private and doesn’t seem to have much of a presence on social media. i-D interviewed him last year and asked him how he chose the musicians he worked with (he’s shot videos for Kendrick Lamar and FKA Twigs, among others). His response: "It tends to be that they speak to something inside me….”

Working with Queen Bey? Yes, Kahlil, we can see how working with Beyoncé speaks to something inside of you. It speaks to something inside all of us.

Last Known Beyoncé Sighting: We’ve been using her video appearances as “sightings” but we have to keep it real: No confirmed sightings since Easter. Easter.

Numerology Evaluation: For now, we have all the numbers we need; 4,2,3 and 9. That’s April 23 at 9 p.m. It’s going down.

Percentage Chance That New Album Will Drop Today: 5 percent. We won’t say 0 percent because Beyoncé is nothing if not unpredictable. But everything seems to be a lead-up to this weekend. We wouldn’t be surprised if the album is called Lemonade and drops at the very second that the HBO special ends.

Until tomorrow, this is BET BeyWatch
