With her multi-platinum Columbia solo debut, "Dangerously in Love," entrenched in the top-10 of The Billboard 200 and the single "Baby Boy" climbing the Hot 100, Beyoncé Knowles is already planning her next set. The artist says she will release a new album in February, featuring tracks that didn't make the cut for "Dangerously in Love."

The release is being prompted by the success of "Summertime," a unused track that was recently serviced to radio. The single, which features either P. Diddy or Ghostface Killah, is currently No. 35 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

As previously reported, the song can be found on the recently released soundtrack to "The Fighting Temptations," in which Knowles stars opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. The film opens Friday (Sept. 19) in U.S. theaters.

Knowles hit the road for 13 U.K. dates beginning Nov. 3 in Manchester. A 12-inch vinyl single featuring dance mixes of "Baby Boy" will be released Oct. 14 in the U.S.
