Another day, another incredible musical festival.

Coming together to implement a call-to-action to help end extreme poverty, musical stars from all over the world brought their talents to the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday.

Shutting down the Great Lawn in Central Park, Beyoncé (amongst many others), delivered a forceful set of hits including “Crazy In Love,” “Who Run The World,” ” Flawless,” and “Single Ladies.” Calling on talented guitarist and singer Ed Sheeran for an acoustic version of “Drunk In Love,” Beyoncé told the crowd, “I want to bring out someone I respect so much.”

In addition to the aforementioned, she joined Pearl Jam for a duet of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ classic hit, “Redemption Song,” and introduced the FLOTUS on stage for her speech to the crowd.

New Music: Naughty Boy feat. Beyoncé & Arrow Benjamin – Runnin’ (Lose It All)


Oh, Beyoncé!

Whether you’re apart of the Beyhive or just an innocent bystander of everything that Beyoncé offers, you’ve got to admit that she’s an incredible artist who anybody would kill to work with.

While many won’t ever get to knock that off their checklist, one person that can is British hitmaker, Naughty Boy. Known for his outstanding work with Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé, and Mary J. Blige’s last album, The London Sessions, the talented producer called on Beyoncé and singer Arrow Benjamin to bless everyone with a new single titled “Runnin’ (Lose It All).”

Jump starting the song with her powerful vocals, Mrs. Carter then goes into belting out over a faster paced production singing, “I ain’t running from myself no more / I’m ready to face you,” before going into a duet with Arrow.

Check out the lovable new track and its accompanying visual below:

Preview: Beyoncé Teams Up with Naughty Boy on New Single “Runnin’ (Lose It All)”


Mary J. Blige isn’t the only R&B diva teaming up with the U.K.’s hottest producers. Naughty Boy, who has previously crafted hits with Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé and more, has landed his biggest collabo yet, and it’s with none other than Beyoncé.

The track, entitled “Runnin’ (Lose It All),” which also features Arrow Benjamin, is expected to be the first single off his forthcoming second album, the follow-up to 2013’s Hotel Cabana.

Over a sparse piano track Bey sings, “Nothing else matters now you’re not here, so where are you? I’ve been calling you, I’m missing you,” in a video teaser for the single.

The visual shows figures diving into water and falling through the air to underscore her dramatic lyrics. The video cuts off fast, leaving us desperate for more. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer. The song will debut in full tomorrow.

BET Announces New Docu-Series, Set To Feature Beyoncé, Chris Brown, And More


If you’re like us, when the news of the revival of BET’s popular after hours show “Uncut” had arrived, we were thrilled knowing that a portion of our past was coming back. Imagine our surprise though, and yours too we’re sure, when we found out it was all a lie and just another way to plug the revival of another fan favorite show from MTV, “Punk’d.” While we were pretty blowed that “Uncut” wasn’t returning, we found peace this week in knowing that a spin on another nostalgic show from our past is set to premiere in just a matter of days.

If you happened to be around when MTV’s popular hit show “Diary” was on television on VH1’s “Behind the Music,” then this will definitely be news that you’ll appreciate.

Beyoncé Brings High Fashion Grace to VOGUE September Issue


In the middle of August Beyoncé brings us stunning cool as she graces the upcoming September issue of the iconic Vogue magazine.

The first issue of fall features Queen Bey modeling an embroidered Marc Jacobs dress (priced at $12,000) under a Marc Jacobs coat (priced at $4,800), and it looks like she just hoped out of the shower and into the nearly $20k attire.

Bey makes a bit of history as well, becoming the first black female artist to cover the September issue of Vogue, which is their biggest issue of the year.

In the cover story, her friends in the fashion world sing her praises. “The word diva is used for so many female performers, and it often means they have reputations for being difficult, but she exudes charm and a lovable quality,” says Marc Jacobs, while Stella McCartney adds, “She’s the whole package: primal, rare, delicate, beautiful, and powerful.”

This marks Beyoncé’s third U.S. Vogue cover. She previously appeared on the March 2013 issue, and the April 2009 issue.
