Beyonce shocked the world last year releasing a self-titled surprise album comprised of new original songs, complete with 17 music videos…and she may just do it again. But this time it may be less of a surprise, if this information is true.
An image of a document featuring both the Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records logos is making the rounds, showing that on November 14th “Beyonce – Self Titled – Volume 2” will make it’s way to iTunes. A physical release with the first self-titled project and the unannounced second album is also teased for November 25th, as a 4-disc package dubbed Beyonce – The Complete Edition, including the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and On The Run Tour Live from Paris on DVD or Blu Ray. It also shows the full track listing, with features from Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake, and Rihanna.
New songs include Sweet Illusion, Donk (Feat. Nicki Minaj), Good In Good Bye, Loyal, Renouncement (Feat. Justin Timberlake), Sensation of Pain, Fashion, KO, True, Cherry (Feat. Rihanna), and the Flawless Remix featuring Nicki Minaj.
Many believe that the leak is completely fake, while others did some investigating and found out records on the leak track-list do in fact exist, and have never been heard of, until the leak found it’s way to social media.
Songs like “DONK” featuring Nicki Minaj, have popped up in the ASCAP database, and is shown to be written by Terius Nash (The Dream) and Pharrell Williams, both of whom Beyonce has worked with in the past. The fact that the song is in the ASCAP database, is the icing on the cake for many, making the leaked information a lot more believable.
But that not all…Amazon UK has listed a new 4-disc project by Beyonce, with the same November release date.
So there you have it Beyonce – Self Titled – Volume 2 or Beyonce – The Complete Edition are likely to be released. If not, this is a well thought out hoax. I personally believe Beyonce is about to surprise us all, again.
UPDATE: Album confirmed! Various retailers have listed Beyonce: The Platinum Edition (yep, that looks to be the OFFICIAL title) for a November 24th release. It can be pre-ordered on Best Buy.
