Honey Dijon, who earlier this year released the fourth single from her upcoming LP Black Girl Magic, Work, is a key figure in the USA house and techno community, having began her career in NYC in the 90s working alongside other famed black producers like Tedd Patterson. Her alleged involvement in the production of the two songs on Beyonce’s new album may be an indication that there may be house or techno influences, but as Ellwood shares, nothing is know about the sound just yet.
Beyonce has previously told Harper’s Bazaar in a 2021 interview that new music was coming. Her label, Sony Music, would later go on to confirm to Music Week that the singer would indeed release new music in the first half of this year
The singer recently featured in a pre-taped performance of her single Be Alive that opened up this year’s Grammy Awards. Beyonce delivered the performance from the same Compton tennis courts where Richard Williams taught his daughters, the legendary Venus and Serena, how to play tennis.
Be Alive, which Beyonce contributed to the soundtrack of Best Picture nominee King Richard, is also Beyonce’s first Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.
