After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy. I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012. After the twins, I approached things very differently.

I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later. Today I have a connection to any parent who has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.

There’s alot of talk about this song! Beyonce never used it, and it sounds like it was recorded during the self titled era. It’s now being featured and reworked for Ariana’s upcoming album. Ariana spoke about the song on a tweet, but you can hear Beyonce’s version on our new twitter. (@TheBeyWorld)

It really is crazy that in 2018, we are still able to say, “the first black cover photographer”. But if anybody is going to break down that wall, who better than Beyonce?

For the cover, Beyoncé has reportedly enlisted 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell, who will be come the first black cover photographer in the publication’s 126-year history. HuffPost reports that a source shared that Mitchell was given the role “because Beyoncé used her power and influence to get him that assignment.” Bey last covered Vogue in 2015.

Producer duo Cool & Dre won’t forget the answer to the question on everybody’s minds this weekend anytime soon. After all, they were right alongside the Carters on tour in London, having literally put finishing touches on Everything Is Love just a few hours before it arrived with no warning on Saturday evening (June 17).

But just because the album’s release came down to the wire doesn’t mean its creation was hasty: Marcello “Cool” Valenzo and Andre “Dre” Lyon describe the work ethic of hip-hop’s perfectionist power couple as nothing short of fastidious — no drum sound, sample or melody was spared their scrutiny. Below, Cool & Dre take Billboard behind the scenes of their Paris stadium sessions, Beyoncé’s hands-on role in the writing process and just how much music they have left in the vault.

The “Tidal Exclusive” album is now available everywhere, and well….It’s taken over the charts. It is #1 in over 70 countries, and Apeshit is also jumping up the singles chart.

“Album Out Now”. Three words that changed the year! As Beyonce and Jay Z finished their second London date on the On The Run II tour, those three words flashed across the screen. The album that has been discussed for years is finally here, and it’s titled “Everything Is Love”. The album has 9 tracks, and lasts 38:17 minutes.

The Carters are officially on the run, and they have finished their first stop! The show was a success, and the fans are tweeting like crazy about how much they loved the show. Check out photos and videos (on our instagram) from the show and the full setlist.
