Things are unsurprisingly quiet in Beyoncé-land. Like, so quiet that a revamped remix of the almost-decade-old "Sweet Dreams" popped on iTunes and everyone, including iHeartRadio, assumed that she was throwing us a bone. As per her rep, she wasn't. "This is not us," a rep told The FADER. However, there is some action going on behind-the-scenes and it looks like there might be plans to bring Bey and husband JAY-Z back on the road together.
Sneaky BeyHive members noticed that Ticketmaster UK's website recently populated an artist page for both of the hip-hop titans. At time of press, the listing had been removed, but there's always the beauty of screen captures. In case you forgot, the couple did have a joint album in the works at one point in time, but the project was scrapped, so that Bey could focus on finishing up Lemonade. Back in 2014, the pair co-headlined "The On the Run Tour" amidst rumors that the couple was splitting up.
In related Beyoncé news, it seems like fans might hear the chart-topper sing a new tune for the upcoming remake of The Lion King if Sir Elton John has it his way. John, who is reuniting with his former Lion King soundtrack collaborator, Tim Rice, will return to the studio to record a new track to close out the film. "And then there will be an end, closing song, and we've been speaking to Beyoncé’s people and hopefully Tim and I and her can cook up something," he recently said. While Bey will voice the character of Nala, Donald Glover is scheduled to voice the character of Simba. The Lion King remake is set to be released in 2019.
