Beyonce's "4" Album Turned Out Entirely Different

Beyonce recorded an entire Fela-inspired album with The-Dream before releasing “4.”

The-Dream, who collaborated with Bey on “Single Ladies” and “Girls,” admitted “4” turned out entirely different than what Beyonce set out to create.

“We did a whole Fela album that didn’t go up,” he wrote on the annotations of “End Of Time” on “It was right before we did 4. We did a whole different sounding thing, about twenty songs. She said she wanted to do something that sounds like Fela. That’s why there’s so much of that sound in the ‘End of Time.'”

The-Dream admits Beyonce’s constantly working to create, so it’s no surprise a lot of her material hasn’t seen the light of day.

There’s always multiple albums being made. Most of the time we’re just being creative, period. We’re talking about B, somebody who sings all day long and somebody who writes all day long. There’s probably a hundred records just sitting around.

As for whether the super producer has a hand in her new material? Mum’s the word.

“I can’t speak on that too much,” he tells Vibe, “but let me just say she’s the greatest right here, right now. But at the same time I don’t know if people realize she belongs on the Mount Rushmore of the best of the best.”

Someone hire Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” hacker please.
