Despite what you heard, Beyoncé is not headed to the Las Vegas strip to do a residency.
LoveBScott initially ran with information from “sources” claiming Queen Bey would announce she is doing a Las Vegas residency sometime in the first half of next year. The misinformation also said Bey would rake in more dough from the residency than any other entertainer in the city.
The singer’s rep, however, told Variety that the rumors were unfounded and categorically false.
It’s “absolutely not true,” her rep told Variety.

All over the world, Beyoncé fans weighed in on the initial speculation, with some arguing from the jump that the rumor was just that as the singer would opt for a new album release and tour over a residency. Others said now that Bey is a mom of three, a residency might suit her mommy schedule better than a multi-city world tour.
To be clear, the “Lemonade” singer has performed in Las Vegas before. She released the I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas album in the City which was recorded in Sin City during a few dates of her “I Am…” world tour, back in 2009.
She’s just not doing a residency. At least not right now.
Beyoncé is coming off of a successful, and busy, past few years. The singer’s Homecoming album, filmed last April at Coachella, received six Emmy nods for pre-recorded variety special, directing for a variety special, and writing for a variety special, according to Variety. Homecoming and Lemonade, which she also re-released last April, marked the first time Beyoncé had two Billboard top ten albums at the same time.

This year, Beyoncé was busy releasing Homecoming as a Netflix documentary, and also working on The Gift, Disney’s Lion King soundtrack.
News outlets now say the star is gearing up to film the video for her song, “Brown Skinned.” The singer reportedly is doing the video in London and is hiring brown-skinned stunners of every hue.
