Beyoncé, Title TBD (Date TBD)

Beyoncé has recorded as many as 50 potential songs for her fifth LP, with an all-star guest list including Pharrell, Timbaland, the Dream and Justin Timberlake. "We all started in the Nineties, when R&B was the most important genre," she told GQ recently. "We all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us." The singer added she drew from D'Angelo, Diana Ross and vintage doo-wop while recording. Expect to see her everywhere this year: After singing at President Obama's second inauguration, she's prepping an upcoming HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream (out February 16), playing the Super Bowl halftime show and hitting the road on a world tour.
