Music World/Columbia Records will release Beyonce’s B’Day – Deluxe Edition, an expanded two-CD edition of the pop icon’s best-selling Grammy-winning solo album, on Tuesday, April 3. On February 11, 2007, B’Day won the Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album, bringing Beyonce’s lifetime Grammy total up to 10 (seven as a solo artist and three won with Destiny’s Child). In addition to the original 12 tracks from Beyonce’s multi-platinum album, Disc One of B’Day – Deluxe Edition premieres three brand-new songs in English: the album’s first single, “Beautiful Liar,” a superstar duet between Beyonce and Shakira, as well as “If” and “Flaws & All.” Disc Two of the expanded B’Day – Deluxe Edition debuts six new Spanish language tracks including “Amor Gitano,” Beyonce’s sensuous flamenco-pop duet with Latin Grammy-winning superstar Alejandro Fernandez. Cowritten by Beyonce with Grammy-winning songwriters/recording artists Reyli Barba and Jaime Flores and produced by Grammy-winning producer Rudy Perez, “Amor Gitano” will be heard as the theme music for “Zorro: La Espada y La Rosa (The Sword and the Rose),” a telenovela (serialized television soap opera) premiering February 12 on Telemundo (check your local listings).
