The COVID-19 crisis has basically put the live music industry in a standstill ever since the virus was deemed a pandemic in mid-March.
As a result, some of the world’s biggest stars have since resorted to putting on virtual concerts as a way to stay in the spotlight, remain relevant, and give back to their fans and communities.
Beyonce and her team are currently mapping out a plan to create a virtual live show to showcase her new music in 2021, now that she can’t tour because of Covid,’ said a source close to the pop superstar.
‘Following the success she had with [2016 album] Lemonade, and the Disney film Black Is King, she started writing and recording feel-good tracks inspired by new artists like Dua Lipa and The Shindellas. She’s ready to dance again,’ added the insider.
As she continues to put in the hard work on her new album, Beyonce also plans to promote it with ‘a virtual show that fans can watch at home.’
That source continued: ‘She has made it clear she’s prepared to pull out all the stops to make it a real spectacle.’
The upcoming new record will be her first as a solo artist since Lemonade, which subsequently received widespread critical acclaim, and is widely considered the best of her career.
Beyonce is considered among the world’s best-selling recording artists, with more than 120 million records sold worldwide.
Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue are among high-profile artists who have recently taken to the livestream venue, as well as such big-name rock groups such as Metallica and Puscifer.
