Beyonce Says New Album Will Be A Mix Of Every Genre
It looks like Beyonce is finally creating a sound to call her own. The rising icon revealed to MTV News that her next studio effort will comprise a mix of her favourite genres of music, drawing inspiration from Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
Beyonce is certainly setting the bar very high for herself. The artists that she named are among the most inventive acts in the industry so for her to capture the essence of their work and mix them would be an impressive feat. Hopefully, she finds a way to put her own twist on their sound and not simply repeat what has been done before as is the norm for most artists today including her.
Perhaps the best aspect of her ‘B’Day’ project was the organic material that exemplified a respectable medium between the work of Tina Turner (her idol) and Prince. If Beyonce manages to craft something similar to that project but with more timeless material then she might create her best record to date.
