Similar to Britney Spears, Beyonce Knowles reportedly decides to push back new songs from her upcoming album. “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies” were planned to hit the airplay on October 7 but it will not come out until October 14. While Britney reportedly resets her “Womanizer” release schedule due to unfinished material, Beyonce is rumored to have decided to delay her new songs because her former band mate Michelle Williams is reportedly unhappy to drop her “Unexpected” LP on the same release date of the two Beyonce’s tunes. No statement is available from the two singers concerning the gossip.
Furthermore, Beyonce will launch her third effort, tentatively called “Virtuoso Effect”, on November 18 and has already filmed music videos for the advance singles from the album. Meanwhile, Michelle’s also-third effort is expected to hit the stores on October 7.
