Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance Feb. 3 will most likely feature new music by the artist.
Music producer, the Dream, who says that he has been "involved in every part of the process" of the singer’s fifth solo album, confirmed to Billboard that Beyoncé will release new music prior to Super Bowl XLVII.
"Definitely. She's got her stuff going. She took the summer to start recording, and now she's in a place where she's ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan," he said.
According to the producer, Beyoncé has enough material to release several songs in the two months leading up to the Super Bowl.
"She's already gearing up to get ready to put stuff out," he says. "I'm sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."
Rumors of a new album began to surface when news that Beyoncé would perform during the Super Bowl half-time show broke in October. The singer’s last album, “4,” was released in June 2011, for which the Dream co-wrote five songs.
Billboard suggests that Beyoncé may be following in Madonna’s footsteps; the singer, who headlined last year’s Super Bowl half-time show, released her single “Give Me All Your Luvin” just two days prior to the performance.
When Madonna's album "MDNA" was released in March, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 359,000 copies.
Beyoncé seems to be gearing up to have an extremely busy February, as her self-produced, directed and starred HBO documentary premieres Feb. 16.
The Dream has been equally busy. Along with working with Beyoncé, he also co-wrote four songs on Rihanna’s latest No. 1 album, “Unapologetic," and says he has also been working with Mariah Carey.
