Beyonce’s last album, "4," was released in June 2011.
While it is unclear what style of music will be on her next album, she is next set to perform at the Super Bowl 2013 in New Orleans.
Though Beyonce is usually quite private, during the U.S. presidential election last week, she was quite outspoken, as she posted photos on her Tumblr account of herself casting a ballot for Barack Obama. She also posted a letter on her official website to Obama. It read,
Everyday we see your heart and character, inspiring all of us to give more of ourselves.
You are the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be.
You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.
All my respect and adoration, Beyoncé.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z were very vocal about their hope of Obama being re-elected for a second term, hosting a fundraiser in September for the Obama campaign at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York. The fundraiser raised $4 million.
When Obama won the election, Beyonce even took to Instagram to post a picture that she later took down. It read, “TAKE THAT MITCHES.”
