‘I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies.

‘Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!’

The latest news comes after Beyonce’s eldest daughter, Blue Ivy, 10, attended the NBA Finals with her famous musician father, Jay-Z, 52.

Jay-Z wasn’t immune from having an embarrassing dad moment as he left his daughter cringing in San Francisco on Monday.

The adorable moment left viewers in hysterics as they quipped the youngster was the only one who could keep her superstar parents ‘humble.’

In the adorable clip, the rapper looked every inch the doting dad as he pulled Blue towards him for a cuddle and a kiss on the cheek, yet the preteen seemed a tad sheepish as she pulled away and laughed.

Journalist Philip Lewis shared a clip of the exchange, writing, ‘To us: Jay Z, the all time rap legend; To Blue Ivy: embarrassing dad.’
