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...

#GameChanger Beyoncé’s New Album Breaks iTunes All-Time Best Sales Week

Beyonce-Album

By now, I am using #gamechanger just to upset the people upset at how Beyoncé got so much press for releasing an album with no promotion.

You can now add that the idea netted her the iTunes record for most album sales in a week...although he album was only out for 3 days!

Beyoncé sold 617,000 copies of her new album in 3 days, breaking the iTunes single week record. The album has sold over 800,000 copies world-wide so far and will debut at number 1 on this week's Billboard Charts.

Lady Gaga sold 662,000 digital copies of "Born This Way" which included Amazon and a promotion to buy the album for 99 cents. B's album was for $15.99 and no discount.-DocFB

Diagnosis: This puts B as the biggest selling female debut of the year over Lady Gaga and Katy Perry who promoted their album's months in advance.

The video features Beyonce's mother and Kelly Rowland as well.-DocFB

Diagnosis: We don't think this will be as popular as a dance that "Single Ladies" was but you never know with Queen B....

Beyonce Is Pregnant With Baby #2!

E! News has just confirmed what everyone was assuming for the past few weeks; Beyonce is pregnant with her second child.

There is no word how far along she is but hopefully she did not have to reveal she was pregnant too early as we all know that is bad luck.

We want to send congrats to Beyonce & Jay Z on this news.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Blue Ivy going to be a big sister....

UPDATE: Although Beyonce is NOT denying the pregnancy confirmation from E!, she is upset about it. Perhaps E! found out from the hospital in unfair ways instead of confirming with Beyonce or her reps. This could mean it was too early to let people know, which we do know is bad luck...if you believe in luck....

Beyonce Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” With Andre 3000; Falls Flat

Beyonce & Amy Winehouse Image By celebnmusic247.com

Beyonce is covering "Back To Black" by Amy Winehouse. The song is from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack and features Andre 3000.

I want to like it. I really do. It is good...but not as good as Florence And The Machine's "Gatsby" song or Lana Del Rey's contribution. Maybe knowing that Jay Z is producing the soundtrack and that Beyonce appears on it makes me critic it more than I should. Maybe it is because that Amy's version is more powerful. It is a great tribute, but I take it as nothing more.

Thoughts?-DocFB

Diagnosis: Dunk it
