First Single, 'Beautiful Liar,' Is a Spirited Duet With Shakira

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 five brand-new songs in English: "Kissing You," "Flaws & All," "Welcome To Hollywood," a hidden bonus track, "Worldwide Woman," and the expanded album's first single, "Beautiful Liar," a superstar duet between Beyonce and Shakira. "Beautiful Liar" will be serviced in four versions -- album version, all Spanish version, Spanglish version and a radio edit -- to all radio formats in the U.S. on Wednesday, February 28 at 5PM Eastern Standard Time. The radio play will start a few hours after the video for "Beautiful Liar" debuts on MTV's "TRL." The video will be shown later that afternoon on BET's "106 & Park." Beyonce will appear live on both programs to deliver the video.

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. Co-written by BEYONCE with Grammy-winning songwriters/recording artists Reyli Barba and Jaime Flores and produced by Grammy-winning producer Rudy Perez, "Amor Gitano" can be heard as the theme music for "Zorro: La Espada y La Rosa (The Sword and the Rose)," a telenovela (serialized television soap opera) on Telemundo (check your local listings).

Rounding out Disc Two of B'DAY Deluxe Edition are Beyonce's Spanish language versions of "Listen (Oye)" and "Irreplaceable (Irreemplazable)" as well as three new mixes of "Beautiful Liar."

Also arriving on Tuesday, April 3 is Beyonce's B'DAY Anthology Video Album. Available exclusively at Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the B'DAY Anthology Video Album includes BEYONCE's videos for "Kitty Kat (intro)"/"Greenlight," "Upgrade U" featuring Jay-Z, "Deja Vu," "Ring The Alarm," "Irreplaceable," "Listen," "Suga Mama," "Get Me Bodied," "Freakum Dress," "Flaws & All," "Kissing You" and "Beautiful Liar" featuring Shakira. As an added bonus, the video collection features fifteen minutes of exclusive behind-the-scene footage.

Beyonce's second solo album, B'DAY, closed out 2006 as one of the year's most successful album, coming in at #7 on Billboard's U.S. Top 10 Best-Selling Albums chart. Certified RIAA double platinum in the U.S., B'DAY has sold more than 4 million copies around the world.

Released around the world on September 4, 2006 (September 5 in the U.S.) to coincide with the artist's 25th birthday, Beyonce's B'DAY entered the Billboard Top 200 at #1, with first week's sales of more than 541,000 pieces, achieving the year's highest first week's sales of any female recording act, group or solo, and the fifth highest chart debut of the year of any artist, male of female. (The pop superstar's first solo album, 2003's Grammy-winning Dangerously In Love, also debuted in the #1 slot.)

B'DAY peaked at #1 on Billboard's Top 200, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and U.S. Internet album charts and remains a constant on the upper reaches of the Top 200.

"Deja Vu" (featuring Jay-Z), the first single from B'DAY, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart and #1 on the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart while its follow-up, "Ring The Alarm," hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and #3 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The album's current single, "Irreplaceable," reached #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart (10 weeks in a row) and #1 on the R&B Singles chart (9 weeks in a row).

Beyonce may currently be seen starring with Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy in the hit Dreamworks and Paramount Pictures film "Dreamgirls."
