Beyonce is ‘Absolutely NOT’ Doing A Las Vegas Residency

*Earlier today we ran a story entitled “Did Beyoncé Sign Up for A Residency in Las Vegas?” Well, now we know the answer is that it’s “absolutely not true,” her rep told Variety.

As we also reported, the story spread after it was posted by Love B. Scott on his/her blog, citing “sources” that said she would announce the residency in the first half of 2020. The report also said the residency would have made Beyonce the highest-paid entertainer in the city.

To be honest, we wouldn’t be surprised if it actually happens sometime in the not too distant future, but at a time when Bey can control the announcement.

Be that as it may, she has done duty in Sin City in the past. In case you forgot, her “I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas” album was recorded there over a few dates during her “I Am…” world tour back in 2009.

Meanwhile, though, the news had gotten Beyoncé fans super hyped one way or the other about the idea, with some claiming that there was no way the star would agree to a residency rather than releasing a new album and touring in support. Others felt she might like the steadiness of a residency as opposed to a world tour.’If Beyoncé is doing a residency in Vegas I’m going like 8 times,’ another added.

OK, now that we’ve got that settled, at least for now, we’ve got other news about the superstar performer. Here’s more via The Daily Mail:

Beyoncé was busy last month filming her new music video for her single Brown Skin Girl.

MailOnline exclusively revealed that the American hitmaker has chosen to film the video on a number of south London estates, such as Catford and Thamesmead.

Beyoncé’s casting team called for ‘black and brown people of different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, genders and ages’ all with backgrounds in London to step forward.

Brown Skin Girl, featuring Saint Jhn and Wizkid, marked Beyoncé’s second collaboration with daughter Blue Ivy, seven, who also sings on the track.

Beyoncé released the 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift, in honor of her role of Nala in this summer’s successful Disney remake.

The body of work also includes tracks Spirit and Mood 4 Eva, but Brown Skin Girl has proven a favourite among fans for being a ‘celebration of dark-skinned women.’

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, 36, thanked Bey for her name check in the track while Streatham-born supermodel Naomi Campbell, 49, is also referenced.
