THAT Beyoncé has released another soppy ballad. I wish she'd stop doing that.

At her Crazy in Love, Single Ladies best Ms Knowles is the ultimate pop diva, churning out dancefloor anthems with aplomb, but she will insist on releasing insipid, sentimental ballads Celine Dion would be proud of; remember last year's If I Were a Boy?

Anyway, she's done it again. The sixth single released from her album I Am... Sasha Fierce, called Broken Hearted Girl, is out on Monday, November 2 and coincides with the release of the new, extended platinum edition of the double album.

The Platinum deluxe edition features four extra bonus tracks, including Kanye West's remix of Ego and a DVD featuring all Beyoncé's eight videos from the new album, including the award winning Single Ladies.

There's also a 20 minute behind the scenes documentary from all of her videoshoots.

Fresh from winning three awards at the MTV Video Awards 2009 for Single Ladies, Beyoncé is embarking on the second leg of the UK part of her I Am... worldwide tour, including two dates at the O2 Arena in November.

Broken Hearted Girl by Beyonce is out on CD and to download on Monday, November 2

The I Am... Sasha Fierce tour comes to Greenwich's O2 on Saturday, November 14 and Monday, November 16. Tickets cost £49.50 from www.theo2.co.uk
