The star wants to concentrate on the return of her group Destiny's Child...

Beyonce has put her plans for a second solo album on hold in order to concentrate on the return of DESTINY’S CHILD.

As previously reported, the ‘Crazy In Love’ star had planned to use the catalogue of songs she had recorded for last year’s solo debut ‘Dangerously In Love’ as the basis for another album in quick succession.

Now, reports MTV, her record label Columbia say that any second Beyonce album will take second place to the new album from Destiny's Child, who are due to regroup this year.

Before Beyonce went solo, bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams released their albums ‘Simply Deep’ and ‘My Heart To Yours’, prompting speculation that the group’s hiatus would become a permanent split.

However, true to their word, the R&B supergroup will release the follow-up to 2001’s ‘Survivor’ this year. [a][/a]’s sister Solange Knowles, who has already released an LP ‘Solo Star’, is widely rumoured to be joining as the group’s fourth member.
