Producer Ryan Tedder has revealed Beyonce is ready to start work on two records in 2012, with new songs focusing on the birth of her newborn daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
The singer/songwriter, who worked with Bey on the tracks 'Halo' and 'I Was Here' from her latest album '4', says they have already spoken about piecing together music for her fifth studio album.
"You feed her the best that you have. She's just a phenomenal filter… she can identify what the next thing is," Tedder told HitFix at the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday.
He continued: "[Beyoncé has] two projects happening this year. You just let her go," adding talks over the new projects had 'literally just happened'.
Rather than slowing down in the wake of Blue's arrival on January 7th, her new bundle of joy seems to have inspired Beyonce to work even harder, with Tedder confirming 'it goes without saying' the new tracks will be heavily influenced by her daughter's birth.
