Hot on the heels of her collaborative project with husband Jay-Z, Queen B (that’s Beyoncé if you’re not cool) is already gearing up to release her seventh solo album, and Netflix is getting in on the deal.
According to The Sun, Beyoncé is in talks with the streaming service to host her next visual album.
“Her team are now in negotiations with Netflix to premiere the project, which would introduce it to a massive audience. They offered a seven-figure sum for Lemonade but contractual obligations with HBO and Tidal meant it didn’t happen. But they are willing to pay through the roof this time because Beyoncé still has massive pulling power,” a source said.

She has yet to decide on all locations for filming, so don’t expect a release this year. One reported location may be the Roman Colosseum.
“Beyoncé has been hard at work on her next solo album and it is shaping up well,” another source told The Sun. “She wants it to be even more ground-breaking and visually impressive than Lemonade, which is why she is scouting out locations which will really wow people.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently traveling for On The Run Tour II. The couple have finished dates in Europe and launch the tour’s North American leg tonight in Cleveland.
