You don't need us to tell you that Beyoncé is going on tour.

The Renaissance World Tour begins May 10 in Stockholm and runs through September, according to tour dates listed on Beyoncé's website.

Billboard writes, citing a press release from Live Nation, that "fan demand has already exceeded the number of available tickets by more than 800% based on current registration numbers."

In other music news, RAYE has released her debut album My 21st Century Blues. The singer is best known for her song "Escapism." The album is a long time in the making.

She faced issues with her old record label and said she wasn't allowed to put out an album.

Now, her album is included in Pitchfork's list of new albums to listen to.

New music alert: The Jonas Brothers announced an upcoming album aptly titled The Album. It's set to release May 5.

Film and Television

A Michael Jackson biopic is in the works at Lionsgate. The King of Pop will be played by Jaafar Jackson — Michael's nephew.

It already faces criticism.

The director of Leaving Neverland, Dan Reed, wrote in The Guardian that the film "will glorify a man who raped children."
