I am starting to think we should replace the word over-time with BEYONCE. Hey J, can you Beyonce for us? We need you to work a little longer.

Beyonce did that with her last album, recording over 80 songs for the record that caught the music industry off guard.

"When I started picking the songs that I gravitated towards – because I recorded about 80 songs – it was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around,"-Beyonce

In part three of the her behind the scenes documentary of the new album, she reveals the recording of the 80 songs. She also takes you behind the scenes of the video of "Drunk In Love" which stars her husband Jay Z.

It also shows behind the scenes clips of "XO," "No Angel" and "'Yonce," with "XO" being directed by Terry Richardson.-DocFB

Diagnosis: I gotta work Beyonce in 2014 for sure! We all do now...

Clark will also be on The Queen Latifah Show this Wednesday October 9th (Yes, she has a show and is killing in the ratings) and Gary will also be returning to the Late Show With David Letterman on November 7th.

"Made In America" captures Jay Z uniting the biggest names in music - including Clark, D'Angelo, Janelle Monáe, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Run-D.M.C., Kanye West - to perform at a star-studded, multi-genre, two-day "Made in America" festival in Philadelphia. The film chronicles the inspirational event, which emphasizes "the diversity of musical genres that appeal to today's youth, the cultural heterogeneity of the festival's target audience - and, perhaps most important, the myriad possibilities for success that exist for those willing to do the hard work of making dreams come true," as Variety put it in its review.

Nice to see Janelle and Gary getting some shine on this.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Pretty impressive that Ron Howard is behind this. Perhaps more films like this will be made now?
