R&B superstar Beyonce is returning to the studio for her upcoming third solo album set for release this fall.
According to her label, Music World Music/Columbia Records, the multi-platinum selling singer’s latest untitled effort has been confirmed and will place her alongside hitmaker Justin Timberlake. Details are scarce as of now, but Timberlake’s roles with the project should be released soon.
In addition to the soulful male singer, Beyonce has also tagged producer Jim Jonsin to help with the album from the recently leaked track “Beautiful Nightmare.” The Atlantic Records producer/songwriter was responsible for Lil’ Wayne’s record breaking single “Lollipop.”
The first two official singles, “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies” are both set to hit the airwaves on Tuesday, October 7.
The untitled album is currently scheduled to hit stores on Tuesday, November 18.
As SOHH previoulsy reported, Beyonce recently joined a star-studded lineup including Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole, Rihanna and others for the single “Just Stand Up” to help support a cancer fundraising campaign.
The charitable song, which is currently available on iTunes, featured over 15 of the most popular female singers coming together to generate funds to support cancer research. The record, produced by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Antonio "L.A." Reid, also included vocals from Ashanti, Ciara, Fergie, Leona Lewis, Miley Cyrus, Natasha Bedingfield, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood.
The single was performed live on the “Stand Up to Cancer” telethon last Friday (September 5), which aired on ABC, CBS and NBC and raised over $100 million in donations.
