Beyonce’ is reportedly close to finishing her third studio album, unfortunately close was not good enough for her deadline. According to the NY Daily News, the “Single Ladies” star has had trouble finishing up that last few tracks to be featured on her album due to other obligations. “Beyonce is incredibly hardworking, and the album is 97 per cent to 98 per cent done” said a source close the project. The former Destiny’s Child singer was due at Sony BMG Music Wednesday to make an announcement about the record’s release – which was originally scheduled for November 18 – but insiders say they have run into problems. “The album is not going to be completed by November 18. But she’s got to get it out early in the fourth quarter, when there’s so much competition among artists.” The delay is believed to be due to Beyonce’s decision to star in two movies this year – ‘Cadillac Records’ and ‘Obsessed’ – as well as the duet she has recorded with Justin Timberlake. An insider said: “Both Beyonce and Justin didn’t like the way the song sounded, so they insisted on doing it over and over again until they got it 100 per cent right.” However, Rob Stringer, the chief of Sony BMG Music, still holds out hope for the album to be released later this year. He said: “Beyonce has an enormous number of very talented people doing whatever they can to make it the best record possible.
