Beyonce working on two new albums (and Blue Ivy diaper duty)

Beyonce has two albums in the works
Clearly nothing can slow down Beyonce. The superstar and brand new mom has two new music projects in the works, according to one producer, as well as a film and raising daughter Blue Ivy.

Welcoming the little one on January 7 with husband Jay-Z, Beyonce was presumably tucked high above Manhattan changing diapers and cooing over little Blue's adorable face -- but a diva is a diva.

"The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening," said Ryan Tedder, frontman of the band OneRepublic, tapped by the superstar to contribute.

"All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have, and she's this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in."

Tedder added that the material he's been writing focuses on parenthood. There's also speculation that one of the projects he's helping Bey with could be the motion picture soundtrack for Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" update -- that has Beyonce at the lead.

That's a little more on her plate than dance class and PTA meetings, but she's Beyonce -- she's built for this, no?
