There's only four weeks left in the football season, which means that the Super Bowl can't be too far away—exciting for many reasons, but for pop fans, none more so than because Beyoncé will be playing at the halftime show in what should be the best NFL mid-game entertainment in years and years. But now, the Bey Hive has a reason to be pumped for February 3rd to get here already—because before that date, the Queen should have some new music out, for the first time since giving birth to Princess Blue Ivy earlier this year.

That's according to Terius "The-Dream" Nash, anyway, longtime Beyoncé producer and creative sort behind classics like "Single Ladies" and "Love on Top." Dream tells Billboard that Bey will "definitely" be releasing new stuff in advance of her turn on America's most-watched televised event. "She's got her stuff going. She took the summer to start recording, and now she's in a place where she's ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan...I'm sure there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here."

Well, "sure" about "probably" doesn't sound as reassuring as "definitely," so we'll stick with that. Guys! New Beyoncé music! Remember how good that last album was? And The-Dream is gonna be "involved in every part of the process" for the new one? Man, it's almost like there was some big holiday coming up in which people are given gifts for not doing anything in particular.
