Beyonce and Shakira duet details revealed

She teams up with Shakira on ‘Beautiful Liar’

Beyonce has spoken about the duet she has recorded with Shakira.

The track ’Beautiful Liar’ is set to appear on the reissued version of Knowles’s album ’B’Day’.

“I’ve always loved her and I’ve always wanted to work with her, and the song fits perfectly,” Beyonce explained.


Speaking about the lyrics, the former Destiny’s Child singer said: “It basically talks about two women; the same guy is trying to get at both of them but instead of them fighting, they’re saying ‘He’s a beautiful liar, let’s not fight, let’s stick together – forget him!’ I think it’s a great concept.”

The singer also said she’s recorded brand new videos for five of the ’B’Day’ tracks.

She told MTV News: “(The reissue) is a dual disc – there’s music on one disc and videos on the DVD. I’m doing five new videos, so I’ll have a video for every song.

“I’m actually starting on those videos (this week) and doing them all in seven days which is pretty crazy. I think it’s a great concept because people can see my interpretations of the songs when they were written.”

Meanwhile Beyonce is set to tour the UK later this year, she plays:

Birmingham NEC (June 1)


London Wembley Arena (3,4)

Nottingham Arena (6)

Manchester MEN (7)

Dublin The Point (9)
