Beyoncé hasn't released a new album in a little while, and many people have chalked that up to motherhood. Now, people are hoping that she will drop another album soon. They were given hope when it was announced that she will perform at the Super Bowl.

If you remember correctly, the last time that Beyoncé released an album, it was a complete surprise to fans and was filled with music videos. Since Beyoncé has stopped talking publicly to media, she hasn't really released any spoilers about when we can expect her album.
Now, we are finding out why we haven't seen the album: she has had it completed for about a year, but wanted to give Adele time to shine.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, Beyoncé, whose last album sold 500,000 copies in 24 hours, wanted to let some of the hype off of 25, Adele's superstar album, wear off and give her a chance to shine in her comeback. Many within the industry expect her to follow a similar release schedule like she did before, where she dropped the album and videos for all of the songs.
According to a source, "It was wrapped up at the end of 2015 but she held off on a release as a code of honor to Adele, so their records didn’t clash. Beyoncé doesn’t have the pressure of releasing an album and is doing bits here and there because she and her team know it is Adele’s time to shine. The last few months have been all about her comeback…Now Adele’s sales are starting to die down, Beyoncé is ready to drop her album at any time. But there’s a very strong chance the announcement could happen during the Super Bowl next month."
Adele and Beyoncé have always been really supportive of each other, so it is interesting to see this. There are a few ways to take it:
- Beyoncé didn't want to compete against Adele because she knew she couldn't sell as many.
- Beyoncé is kind of patronizing Adele because she thinks she would steal her thunder.
- Beyoncé really just wanted to be nice and give Adele a time to shine.
Either way, it is nice to see women taking over and dominating the music industry.
