Beyonce Knowles has revealed details of her next solo album, which is to glory in the title of “B’Day” and be released – yep – on Knowles 25th birthday, 4 September. The first single release will be ‘Deja Vu’, a collaboration with the singer’s boyfriend Jay Z.
The former Child Of Destiny is said to have written, arranged and co-produced her second solo work, which is also believed to feature contributions from Rodney Jerkins, Rich Harrison, The Neptunes and Swizz Beatz. Presumably Beyonce herself also came up with the title, as she did everything else. It seems a bit unwise. It might not happen in the US, but there’s always going to be someone over here who’s going to think it sounds like ‘bidet’.
