Beyonce has finally named her fouth solo album, 4. She explained her fondness for the number four because she celebrates her birthday on September 4th and her wedding anniversary with rapper/producer Jay-Z on April 4th.
Speaking to Billboard magazine this month, Bey mentioned how much the late Nigerian Afrobeat singer Fela Kuti inspired her new sound.
She explained: ‘I also found a lot of inspiration in ’90s R&B, Earth, Wind & Fire, DeBarge, Lionel Richie, Teena Marie… I listened to a lot of Jackson 5 and New Edition, but also Adele, Florence + the Machine, and Prince. Add in my hip-hop influences, and you can hear how broad it is.’
Im not gonna lie, the teasers are starting to drag on just a little.
