It was a huge risk...
Beyonce's new album is a huge success, but there was a point where she wasn't sure that would be the case. The singer spoke with US News and said that she was worried about the risk she was taking.
"I was terrified," she said. "I was so scared. I already envisioned like the worst things that could happen. I'm very private and I'm very respectful, and I think it just took me no longer being someone's child — once I became a mother, I felt like I could tear those fourth walls and I just felt like it was time. I completely feel liberated."
As to why she did it, she saidf, "Honestly I was at a point where I felt like, you know, everything feels the same. That's how I felt and if I could not challenge that, then maybe it's time for me to do something else or develop more artists, which is something I want to do. I just hope that I continue to move forward and challenge myself, and I think now that I've become a mother, I just want my legacy to inspire people."
