You can't rush perfection, especially when it comes to the upcoming Beyoncé album, says singer Ne-Yo -- not the most welcome news for Beyoncé fans.
Speaking to Billboard, the singer-songwriter and album contributor shared that the "Grown Woman" singer is still polishing her fifth solo album, working to get it just right.
"I'm still putting stuff together for Beyoncé's album," Ne-Yo told Billboard. "They're still trying to figure out what they want that to be, which I'm not mad at. Beyoncé's the kind of artist where you're not gonna see it till it's right."
Many fans are growing anxious regarding the release date of the project. Queen Bey has yet to announce the album's released date or title even as she prepares to kick off the American leg of her much-hyped Miss Carter Show world tour.
Rumors have swirled about possible release dates. For exampe, a Norwegian journalist said Mrs. Carter told her backstage at an Oslo meet and greet that the album would be arriving in November.
But with no official confirmation from the artist, her team or her label, most of the Beyhive remain in the dark as far as album details are concerned.
Still, Ne-Yo feels fans understand the creative process and he knows that "they love her so they'll be patient."
Along with visits to the recording studio and that epic Super Bowl performance, Bey has kept extremely busy the last few months. She released an H&M commercial featuring her new track "Standing on the Sun," created a new song for her animated film "Epic" and even headlined the "Chime For Change" charity concert in London.
