Beyonce working on new album

(EUR) Beyonce has revealed that she has been working with crew of hip-hop heavyweights on her forthcoming new album. “I’ve been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream,” she told GQ. “We all started in the ’90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us.”

When asked about the influences on the the follow-up to 2011′s ’4′, she said: “Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There’s a bit of D’Angelo, some ’60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross.”
