There's no turning back now. Beyonce and Columbia records execs are bracing for a big bomb, according to the NY Post's Page Six.

I told you earlier that my source at Columbia Records indicated Beyonce's upcoming album, 4, would be pushed back for "retooling". But following a series of "emergency" meetings in New York, the decision was made (by Jay Z and Bey) to release the record on schedule on June 28.

My source said Jay Z, who A&R'd the album, takes it as a personal insult that Columbia execs are questioning his decisions. "[Jay Z] and his boys are A&R'ing Beyoncé but they're not doing a great job at it. This has been the worst rollout I've ever seen on Beyoncé," said my source.

According to Page Six's sources, Columbia Records executives fear Beyoncé's new album, "4," could be a dud after she refused to return to the studio to re-record new tracks. This, despite the fact that Beyonce initially recorded 72 songs for the project. My confidential source told me that top level execs at Sony are all in agreement: "This is the worst Beyonce album ever."

"They're very nervous about Beyoncé's new record," an industry insider told Page Six. "It doesn't have the hit songs that her fans are used to. They asked her to make changes, but she said no."

Bracing for the worst, Columbia suits are strategizing in case of slower sales and have had "quiet discussions" about the reunion of Destiny's Child.

"Beyoncé's career has stalled a bit," a source told us. "Columbia seems to think they can get some mileage out of a comeback record with all of the girls." Another source tells us Destiny's Child could start recording together as early as October, with a suggested album title "Family Reunion."

    I agree...the last DC cd was really good. I have a feeling since Bey has a strong fan base that the CD will do good.

  • Feline Feminine

    I honestly think Bey has an extreme fear of failure. But what she has to understand is that even the great legendary singers of our time have fallen and failed and flopped, only to come back out later and be great again. Not to say that this album will be a flop because I honestly think she will still sell, but she has to stop acting like she is above stumbling a bit. I really hope she doesn't try to use Kelly and Michelle to help boost herself back up again...

    @FeFe I honestly don't think she cares what the label says. When she played her DIL CD for them they told then that it was a fialure and she didn't have one hit single on it. She wound up having 5 so I don't think she cares what they say. If she really cared she would probably postpone the release so she can add mor songs. IMO.

  • vjackson

    Well, I've enjoyed Beyonce's absence from the entertainment landscape. Her oversinging and underacting wasn't missed by anyone..and that's what Beyonce found out. In these days of short attention spans, mediocre talent, and everyone that gets a hit being called the next big thing...you're very easily forgotten and "so yesterday". When B realized no one was missing her, she ran into the studio and recorded some new crap that's seems to be worse than her old crap that people liked.

    @Mamacita

    I didn't know her DIL CD was a predicted flop, that is news... but nonetheless I can honestly say that I felt that was her strongest solo project and each CD after that has been a slow decline in overall r&b quality and appeal. I know her target right now is to be a pop artist but I think the label is starting to get feedback from the public and from what I've heard from people in general (not her stans) but optimistic and unbiased listeners, is that it's sub-par. At any rate, I do think it will still do well... :coffee:
