Beyoncé's next album release and tour status remain uncertain, but she has good reason: the 31-year-old singer is reportedly expecting her second child with husband Jay-Z.

The news, as reported by Us Weekly, would offer a clear explanation of her recent ailments: Beyoncé canceled a show this past Tuesday in Antwerp, Belgium on doctors' orders due to dehydration and exhaustion. However, she went against medical advice and performed in the city the next night. Last week, multiple sources at the Met Gala in New York told the New York Post that Beyoncé is pregnant.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
