New York: Beyonce, who is currently at home with her one-month-old baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, is reportedly planning to return to the music studio sometime soon with two projects slated for 2012.

Ryan Tedder, singer and songwriter of OneRepublic, who has helped produce smash hits with Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Beyonce herself, has told a website that he has already sent the superstar songs about motherhood.

“The conversations about her next album literally just started and there are two projects happening,” a leading daily has quoted Tedder as saying.

“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,” he said.

However, the ‘Apologize’ hitmaker declined to specify what the star’s second project will be -- although an album of remixes for her album four has been rumoured. On the other hand, the 30-year-old’s husband Jay-Z is back to work as well.

In December, he told a news channel that, assuming his ‘Watch the Throne’ tour with Kanye West concluded well, he planned to work on a solo project in 2012 as well as on a new album with West.

“We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively,” Jay-Z said.

“You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year,” he said.

Pharell, The Neptunes producer who often collaborates with Jay-Z, recently told a news channel that he is working with Jay-Z on a new project.

“We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Pharell said.

“You know, he’s very discreet,” he added.
