Beyoncé hasn’t headlined a concert in four years, but she recently made the rounds online after reportedly performing at a private event in Dubai. Many people have been wondering if she will attend this year’s Grammy Awards in light of the recent news.
According to Variety, the award-winning musician performed over the weekend at Dubai’s new Atlantis The Royal Resort, and the production value was not simple because all elements were reportedly extravagant throughout her show.
There were violinists with gold headpieces, backup dancers, and an Egyptian-themed set fit for a queen.
Beyoncé took the world by storm with her comeback album “Renaissance” last year, and some fans are surprised that she never performed any of her new songs at a private event.
The outlet speculated that the reason she never performed any of her recent tracks was that she was saving them for a Grammy performance. According to reports, show producers are in talks with the pop star’s team about an onstage appearance.
As of this writing, Beyoncé has not publicly confirmed whether she will attend the prestigious awards show, but she is currently nominated for nine awards, making her, along with her husband, Jay-Z, the most-nominated Grammy artist in history.
Beyoncé’s performances aren’t simple to many fans because Queen Bey always adds an element of surprise to every detail of her shows. This is exactly what occurred during her private concert in Dubai.
The event strictly prohibits phones and recording devices, but footage of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, performing the song “Brown Skin Girl,” which she performed, leaked online.
The Grammy Award-winning singer reportedly changed her outfits several times to match the songs she performed. The setlist included previously released songs such as “Beautiful Liar,” “Naughty Girl,” “Freedom,” “Be Alive,” “Spirit,” and many more.
Kendall Jenner, Chloe and Halle Bailey, Rebel Wilson, and Nia Long were among the celebrities who attended the event.
According to Perth Now, the pop star earned $24 million for her one-hour performance. The performance lasted 73 minutes in total. She also stayed in one of the newly opened hotel’s rooms, which reportedly cost $100,000 per night.
