Beyonce Knowles is turning her back on R'n'B to release a dance album.The 26-year-old singer has asked dance act The Freemasons to work on a new song for her next LP after her last offering 'B-Day' failed to sell as well as hoped.James Wiltshire, one half of the duo, said: "The album is going to be huge."It will rival anything the likes of Britney and Rihanna have done recently. Beyoncé and her team can see where mistakes were made on her last album."That was very American, very r'n'b and stripped back. This time they want to go for a more international sound and hit as many audiences as possible."Normally big stars don't take any notice of smaller acts like ours, so her decision to work with us shows just where she is going with this album."Beyoncé's team approached James and his musical partner Russell Small after they heard the pair's official remixes of the star's hit songs 'Déjà Vu' and 'Beautiful Liar'.

James told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Her management have been in almost daily contact with us ever since.

"It is exciting getting to work on a new tune for her, as we get to be really creative."

James, 32, revealed the pair even pushed back other top projects to work with the Bootylicious beauty.

He said: "We were asked to do the remix of Britney's 'Gimme More' and to work on Donna Summer's new album.

"But we put them both on hold to work with Beyoncé."
