Beyonce Is Already Prepping Two New Albums

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Beyonce is working on not one, but two albums this year. According to Ryan Tedder, singer/songwriter and frontman of OneRepublic, he was working with the superstar that never sleeps and “the conversations about her next album literally just happened.” The "Secrets" singer added that Beyonce, “steers the ship," so we can only anticipate what the two are cooking up in the studio.

Tedder revealed news of the new music, while speaking with press at the 2012 Grammy Awards then he later told TheBoomBox, "The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening. All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have and she's this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in." One of those albums may be the soundtrack for the upcoming Clint Eastwood film "A Star Is Born." The multi-talented hyphenate picked up accolades for contributing to Adele’s Album of the Year, 21, and his nomination for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical.

Beyonce continues to keep fans guessing. Last Friday (February 10), the Super Mom and husband Jay-Z released the highly-anticipated first photos of daughter Blue Ivy Carter on their own Tumblr.

The aww-inducing photos show the couple holding the newborn in a series of five photos. In the first photo, we see the adorable Blue swathed in a polka-dot wrap sleeping. In the remaining, she has her eyes wide open and is being held by her beaming mom, and in another, her back is to us while she's being held by her doting daddy.

On the Tumblr, a simple note read: "We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter family."
