Beyoncé Reveals Album Tracklisting, Performs On American Idol And Declines Copy-Cat Accusations
Ever since Beyoncé returned on the scene, she's been under the limelight just as if it was solo debuting ‘Crazy In Love’ days. Yesterday (May 25), Beyoncé and her team took to Facebook to unveil the tracklisting to her upcoming album, ‘4’. She released each song on a new hour, revealing the only and rather special feature from Outkast's long hiatus member, Andre 3000.
Full album tracklisting...
2. 'I Care'
3. 'I Miss You'
4. 'Best Thing I Never Had'
5. 'Party' Featuring Andre 3000
6. 'Rather Die Young'
7. 'Start Over'
8. 'Love On Top'
10. 'End Of Time'
11. 'I Was Here'
12. 'Run The World (Girls)'
After basically scoring a hit and miss with comeback, Diplo-produced single, ‘Run The World (Girls)’, Beyoncé took to the ‘American Idol’ stage to unveil The-Dream-penned and produced opening track, ‘1 +1’, which is also available to buy on iTunes now.
Along with releasing the new track, Beyoncé has been everywhere. She even had the honour of singing on Oprah's finale episode, where she performed ‘Run The World (Girls)’. But, the superstar has also recently faced some controversy, as she was accused for ripping off Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini for her jaw-dropping Billboard Music Awards performance.
Apparently, the two acts performances were produced by the same production company, sharing synchronized graphic effects. And while similarities are surely clear to the eye, Beyoncé doesn't hesitate to note inspiration from the Italian entertainer. "My make-up artists showed me the performance of Lorella Cuccarini a year ago, and it inspired me so much," she explained to AOL Music. "I then met with the talented people who worked on it. The technology and concept were so genius."
Not knowing what to expect from Bey, do be on the lookout for her upcoming album, ‘4’, slated to be released June 28.
