Well bey-hive babes we’ve got some good news and some bad news. First, the good news is it looks like the rumors about Beyonce’s new music were, mostly, true because it’s CONFIRMED that Queen B is releasing at least TWO brand new songs. REJOICE! And the bad news? None of them are the rumored collabs with Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and Nicki Minaj. Honestly, I’m not really that sad – Beyonce solo is more than enough for me. But I’m obsessed so maybe that’s just me.
On Monday rumors were swirling that Beyonce was ready to release ANOTHER surprise album when a document leaked that appeared to confirm a track list for a possible part two of her self-titled album that dropped late last year. However, we now know that the self-titled album is getting a re-release with TWO new songs and a few new remixes of the previous songs. One that I’m personally really excited about is the “Blow” remix with Pharrell. Yeah, that’s going to be awesome.
Beyonce’s record label confirmed that the Beyoncé Platinum Edition Box will drop on November 24, and will feature two new songs titled “7/11” and “Ring Off.” In addition to that, the box set will include a DVD of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour AND a mini calendar. Um, santa are you listening…because you know what will be on my wish list this Holiday season.
While this news is SUPER exciting, I have to admit I’m a little bummed that the potential collabs didn’t actually turn out to be true. Let’s just hope that was a COMPLETE rumor, and not something that Beyonce might be withholding from us all because it got leaked. Beyonce can be very tricky about that stuff, so that could be an option. Just something to think about.
Alright, what say YOU about this Beyonce news? Are you happy for new music? Or bummed because it wasn’t what people were expecting? Share your feelings in the comments,
