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.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z has been busy with the new sports agency arm of Roc Nation.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
