R+B sensation Beyonce is delaying work on her next album while she films her new movie DREAMGIRLS (corr).

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer, whose fans are waiting for a follow-up to her hit solo album DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE, was thrilled to be given the role of DEENA JONES in the movie, which sees three soul singers cross over into pop music.

She says, "I'm not going to write for the album until I finish doing the movie.

"I've never been so excited about a movie in my life.

"I want to give 100 per cent to this film, because I know I was born for this role."
