Beyonce Knowles took the stage at the Bermuda Music Festival last night before flying to Miami, slipping into a bikini and grabbing a fruity drink on the beach today. While Jay-Z is back in New York talking about starting a family with his wife, Beyonce is busy writing to her fans about her upcoming arrival – her new album. She wrote:

I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny's Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It's me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18.

Sounds like it's been a prolific time for Beyonce, and if she can keep churning out the catchy dance tracks and ballads, it's sure to be another hit to add to her impressive resume.
