Los Angeles: R&B star Beyonce Knowles is reportedly planning to start work on two new albums this year, and has been meeting with Ryan Tedder, who she worked with on 'Halo'.

The 30-year-old 'Love on Top' singer gave birth to her first daughter Blue Ivy Carter last month but is already said to be thinking about her music career and planning the follow up to '4', released last year, as reported.

"The conversations about her next album literally just started and there are two projects happening. 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," said Tedder.

"She's not interested in 2012, she's interested in what's going to sound good for 2013," he added.

One of the projects could prospectively be the soundtrack to Clint Eastwood's planned remake of 1954 film "A Star Is Born", about a young starlet helped by an ageing movie star, in which Knowles is lined up for the female lead role.
