DESTINY'S CHILD star Beyonce Knowles is determined to release her next solo album this summer (06) - and will record it in gaps in her busy movie schedule.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer's Hollywood career has taken off and she is currently shooting DREAMGIRLS. But she is determined to combine music and movies and plans to hit the studio as soon as the film wraps.

She explains, "I'm going to try and do an album after the movie.

"I want to put the album out in the summer (06), which means I have six weeks to record it after the movie (is completed).

"But I've done that with just about every album, so we'll see if it happens again."
