Beyonce has revealed that she has been working with a cast and crew of hip-hop heavyweights on her forthcoming new album.

"I've been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream," she told GQ. "We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us."

When asked about the influences on the the follow-up to 2011's '4', she said: "Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There's a bit of D'Angelo, some '60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross."

Yesterday, Beyonce confirmed that Destiny's Child will release their first new material in eight years later this month.

The band disbanded in 2006 to pursue their various solo careers, but Beyonce posted a message on Facebook yesterday (January 10) saying: "I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years!"
