Adele and Rihanna may not be the only female artistes dominating the 2016 tour schedule as Beyonce could be joining them. Reports claim the Single Ladies singer is in talks to perform at a stadium in the US in May, fuelling rumours that she will have a new album to promote.

Sources have reportedly told CBS Pittsburgh that Beyonce, 34, is in the middle of discussions to play a date at the Heinz Field stadium in the North Shore area of Pittsburgh towards the end of May. No other dates or venues were mentioned in the report but the claims suggest Queen Bey is ready to release new material.

Rumours have circulated for some time that Beyonce was teaming up with her husband Jay Z, 46, for a collaborative album and in December 2015, songwriter John Glass reignited the speculation, tweeting: "I am actually working to get on this Jay-Z and Beyonce album. It's going to be #HUGE."

In April 2015, US DJ Skee claimed music's power couple were putting finishing touches to the album, which he alleged would be made available only on Jay Z's music streaming service Tidal. Skee said in a video clip at the time: "[The album] is nearing completion and now my sources are saying it will be released exclusively on Tidal."

Beyonce and Jay Z have collaborated several times in the past with their biggest singles including 2003's Crazy In Love, 2006's Deja Vu and Drunk In Love, which was released in 2013. Other singles include On The Run (Part II), featured on Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album and Lift Off, which appeared on the rapper's joint album with Kanye West, Watch The Throne.

The couple combined their hits to form the 2014 tour On The Run, which saw the Grammy winners share the stage across North American arenas for 21 dates. Fans have anxiously awaited new music from Beyonce since the release of her fifth self-titled album in 2013. The Flawless singer was reportedly set to film a music video in New Orleans before Christmas 2015 over a six-day shoot.
