Beyonce is believed to have auditioned more than 50 songs for her much-anticipated fifth studio album but has decided to scrap them all and start over, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Among the writers potentially affected are Ryan Tedder, The-Dream, Sia, Diane Warren and Ne-Yo, who said in June that Beyonce was “still trying to figure out” a direction for the album.

The singer’s label, Sony-owned Columbia, had hoped to have new Beyonce music out by spring, which turned out to be a pipe dream. Now, it looks like a fall release may not be feasible.

Columbia had its sights set on a big fourth-quarter bow by Beyonce, both to compete with high-profile releases by Universal Music’s Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and to capitalize on her massive Mrs. Carter tour.

“Beyonce has had some of the biggest hits of our format, and we’re ready for the next,” says Tom Poleman, president of national programming platforms at Clear Channel.

    50 songs? Wow. I know she’s making the best decision for her music. And that’s okay because when she’s ready, I’ll be waiting. #MrsCarter #Dec14 #BeyHive

    Sometimes her status baffles me. She has not had a solid pop hit in ages … Yet the media lavishes her with all kinds of praise and attention. Anyone else would be tagged “over.” More to the point is that, as someone said, her albums are not classic. She has not had a “Velvet Rope” or a “Private Dancer” in all these years … a real statement that stamps who she is as a woman and an artist. For me that’s the problem. She’s just a lot of hype. Talented hype yes, but hype regardless. And keeping it all the way 100 – it’s her FANS who make people hate her. They are obnoxious – and once her star fades so will their interest in her.

    Where is Matthew Knowles when Beyonce clearly needs his help for her new album?

    the hate some people have for this woman is a mess! you think these other artist write their own songs?? yea right! she is a singer and performer not a writer! DUH! the few that dont like her are surely outnumbered by the many that love her. I went to her concert a few weeks ago and I still can’t get over how amazing she was. What should she do? sing old 2 step songs because she is getting older?? wrong! she caters to her audience which is a young crowd so shut it up she knows what she is doing that’s why she always remains on top!

      The only problem with your response is that your queens claims to be a writer… Which she is not. Do you go this hard hard for your family and friends??? Do you know as much about your gynecologist as you think you do of your precious “queen”? If not, ou have a serious mental condition. And I’m not a hater. I used to like Bey as an artist.

      • jlo

        what in THE hell does my family, friends and gyno have to do with this article about beyonce?????? i am speakinng about beyonce which is what the article is about stfu you went way off the deep end and sound really stupid b/c i said she was great and she is!

        • Growth..peace

          Calling someone stupid because they have a differing opinion? And this is who Bey is catering too? That is exactly the point. She is making simple music so you can spend your money on medeocrity. But hey. To each her own. I’m not going to converse with a child. Atleast I hope you’re not over the age of 20 acting this way. Have a blessed one.

      I’m not sure how old you are, but you’re last sentence might be the problem we’re having….she’s now catering to a different audience, where as a lot of us have grown up with her and used to appreciate what she put out, I guess we’ve grown in the opposite direction that she did

  • Just saying!!

    Must be because people aren’t reacting to her music. Here’s a thought Bey—how about you do what REAL artists do and write your own songs!? Sorry… Guess the title rubbed me the wrong way. Really though? People are tired of the gimmicks. I guess this will be a true test of her artistry, or lack thereof. Not everything has to be a number one hit, as soon as you begin focusing on that, the quality of the music suffers.

  • Growth

    I think this is the reality check she needs. I was a Huge fan of hers but I have out grown her. Hopefully she shows growth and maturity with her new album. Pride comes before a fall, and with her naming herself a “king” and telling folk to bow down is back firing big time. My momma always said, ” grown folk don’t have to announce they grown.” Come on Bey! I can’t wait to be a fan again!

    • beautifulglenda

      ” Reality Check” she rejected the songs they didn’t reject her. Also her using “king” and doing songs like Bow Down is all in the spirit of fun. Rappers do it all the time and no one gets upset so why are people making it a big deal. Also i don’t think Bey is worried about an album because she is on a sold out concert tour which by the way was just extended because of much demand. She wouldn’t even have the time to promote an album right now.

      • Nope

        I agree. It’s a marathon not a sprint, and Beyonce has running laps around everyone else for about 10 years now. I don’t her or her label are pressed, not to mention it’s not even the 4th quarter yet. lol at people mad at her marketing angles.

        • Nope

          Swype has failed me yet again….

      • Just saying!!

        You are illogically upset so I’m going to assume you are a Stan. No one is mad at her. We are just saying she’s showing no growth and has no substance to what she does, now she’s trying to figure out what the next step is and I honestly don’t think she has a clue because she’s too worried about pleasing everyone else and having hit records, since that’s what superficial, shallow people presume success to be.

        • Growth

          Thank you! I figured by saying I was a fan that would let them know I’m a supporter but… A Stan is a Stan.

          How do i seem “illogically upset” in writing, I didn’t use bold letters or exclamation points. Also you used the word “illogically” in which way did i seem illogical? Also when did i say someone was mad? And the “showing no growth and has no substance” comment is an opinion and in my opinion since we are stating opinions i think she have shown major growth just listen to her 1st album compared to “4”.

  • bluekissess

    Beyonce and her music has been blah. I like beyonce BUT her albums aren’t classics. I usually don’t listen to her albums after I know all the songs. I do enjoy bow down and grown woman but grown woman seems like a repeat of girls who run the world. Change the formula girly

    • Kenedy

      Her first solo album, to me is a classic, & is the only good album she’s ever put out….everything else went down south from there
