Since Beyonce released ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ in 2008, devoted fans have been waiting for Queen B to produce a fruitful follow-up. When she collaborated with Lady Gaga on the ‘Telephone‘ remix and more recently Kanye West on ‘See Me Now,’ it became apparent the former Destiny Child‘s frontwoman was gearing up for a comeback. Songwriters Sean Garrett and Ne-Yo are reaffirming that claim, while The-Dream‘s frequent collaborator Los Da Mystro leaked news that a new Beyonce single, produced by The-Dream, could drop within the next three weeks.

“Listening to New B record Dream wrote … F—INg INSANE! WOw!!” Los Da Mystro tweeted. “She About to Kill the game again! Had to Listen again!! Y’all C in 3 weeks!”

Garrett, who has previously worked alongside Beyonce on songs like ‘Upgrade U’ and ‘Diva,’ teamed up with the songstress last week to work on her new project. “I think we are doing a lot of up-tempo records for this one,” he tells EW.com. “She’s in such a good place right now in life that she is interested in making party music, definitely.”

Though a rep for Ms. Knowles was unavailable to confirm whether or not she was indeed working on a fourth solo opus, Ne-Yo did. The crooner, who wrote B’s ‘Irreplaceable,’ revealed he will be collaborating on B’s next album. He also gave some insight on her mentality when it comes to creating songs in the studio. “The thing about working with Beyonce is that she definitely has her own agenda,” he shares with MTV News. “She’s an artist that knows exactly what she wants to do. She’s going to give you directions [like] ‘Here’s where I’m going, so here’s where I need you to be.”

According to Ne-Yo, he was chosen to team up with the singer because she approved of his writing skills. “And, you know, I’m a person that follows direction well,” he says. “[And she'll be like], ‘So this is the sound, this is the vibe; make it happen.’ And I write and she likes it or she doesn’t. And in this case she did, and there you have it.”
