Are You Ready for "B'Day"???

Beyonce's highly anticipated sophomore album is set to be released in the US on September 5th (the day after her 25th birthday) and it will be called "B'Day".
The pop music superstar's sophomore studio album premieres all new music co-produced, written and arranged by Beyonce. "Deja Vu," the album's first single, features guest artist Jay-Z with co-production by Rodney Jerkins. Beyonce's co-producers on B'Day include Rich Harrison, The Neptunes, and Swizz Beatz.

Beyonce's new album is the artist's first full-length solo work since her #1 multi-platinum 2003 solo debut, "Dangerously In Love," which earned her five 2004 Grammy Awards including Best Contemporary R&B Album and Best R&B Song ("Crazy In Love"). With her five-in-one-year Grammy win, Beyonce tied the record for the most Grammys to be won in a single year by a female artist. "Dangerously In Love" and "Crazy In Love" made chart history when both album and single simultaneously hit #1 in the U.S. and the UK (which hadn't happened since 1983). Beyonce toured for the first time as a solo artist in 2003 in support of "Dangerously In Love," which has sold more than 11 million records worldwide.Beyonce finished work on her new studio album three weeks after the wrap of her upcoming film, "Dreamgirls," slated to open nationwide on December 22, 2006.

You all already know that I'm looking forward to Beyonce's album. This is a kinda big year for music, well at least a big Summer/Fall. Three highly anticipated albums are being released around the same time. There's Christina Aguilera (August 15th), Beyonce (September 5th), and Janet Jackson (September 26th). I can't wait, I'm a fan of all three of them...
