Just two weeks after exchanging vows with longtime boyfriend Jay-Z, it looks like Beyonce is following in his footsteps — calling it quits from music, like Jay-Z attempted after the release of the Black Album.
According to a report from New York’s Daily News, the singer’s cousin, Angelica Knowles, claims that Beyonce’s next album will be her last as a recording artist, as she takes on a role behind the desk.
Apparently, Beyonce will help her new husband scout talent for Jay-Z’s new label.
Jay-Z is said to be on the verge of inking one of the biggest deals in music history with Live Nation Inc., reportedly worth $150 million.
Via the deal, Live Nation would obtain a stake in everything from Jay’s music to his music-related business for 10 years, as well as publishing, licensing and other rights.
The company would also finance Jay’z entertainment venture, Roc Nation, which is rumored to include a record label, music publishing, talent consulting and managing projects.
This is where B would fit in, searching for new talent.
Beyonce’s first protégé is rumored to be an R&B artist named Chelsea Thomas.
Reps for the singer could not be reached for comment.
