Are The Executives At Columbia Records Worried Beyonce’s New Album Will Flop?
Reportedly, the suits over at Columbia Records are in panic mode over fears that Beyonce‘s upcoming album, 4, will be a major flop. According to Page Six, the label’s executives tried to convince the “Girls (Who Run the World)” singer to re-record new tracks, but she refused. An industry insider said:
“They’re [Columbia] very nervous about Beyonce’s new record. It doesn’t have the hit songs that her fans are used to. They asked her to make changes, but she said no.”
Brainstorming over ways to save face if 4 ends up being a major dud, Columbia honchos have even kicked around the idea of another Destiny’s Child album. The source said:
“Beyonce’s career has stalled a bit. Columbia seems to think they can get some mileage out of a comeback record with all of the girls.”
Although the label is said to have already come up with a name for the proposed DC reunion album (Family Reunion), getting the girls to unite maybe easier said than done since Kelly Rowland is finally garnering a buzz as a solo artist. The source said:
“She has her own solo career now, why would she want to be singing back up for Beyonce?”
True indeed…Kelly has a hit on her hands with “Motivation,” and there are a lot of positive things being said about her new album Here I Am, which hits shelves July 26, so why the heck would she want to go back to being known as Beyoncé and them???
