WAS THE TRACKLIST FOR BEYONCE’S NEW ALBUM LEAKED?

Beyonce's New Pepsi Promo

Did someone leak the tracklist for Beyonce’s upcoming album?  Well, depending on who you ask… Yes and No!

A few days ago, an image of a list of songs went viral.  The list had 11 songs on it and was titled “Mrs. Carter.”  The Mrs. Carter Show is the name of Beyonce’s upcoming world tour so it wouldn’t be too far fetched if her album was named the same.  The list was also written on notebook paper that says Beyonce’ on it, which you can barely see.

So where did the list come from?  The original image was posted to a Beyonce News Facebook Page with the caption, “A guy from Stargate accidentally leaked this photo from the studio where Beyonce is recording her 5th album.” Stargate is a production team that Beyonce has worked with in the past.

Beyonce has been very secretive, as usual, about her next album.  She has yet to confirm a title or release date.  So when this was leaked, there was a moment of excitement for all Beyonce fans.  The excitement didn’t last long because soon after the list was leaked, it was rumored to be fake.

Idolater was one of the first sites to report that the list is fake: “A very reliable source tells us that this tracklist is absolutely fake. Boo hiss.”  They originally posted the story of the list being leaked and then hours later updated their post stating that it was indeed fake.  However, there are other media outlets that believe the list is real and saying it’s fake is just a way to cover someone’s big mistake of leaking it.  Check it out below:

 

Beyonce's Tracklist

Translation:

1.  “Ratchet” (feat. Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks)

2.  “Back 2 Business” (feat. Jay-Z)

3.  “Roller Coaster” (feat. Justin Timberlake)

4.  “Visions” (feat. Sia)

5.  “Dance (I’m Soon Over)” (feat. Rihanna)

6.  “More Than Sex” (feat. Ne-Yo)

7.  “Better Than Ever Before” (feat. Solange Knowles)

8.  “Runway”

9.  “Sensations”

10.  “12 Roses”

11.  “It’s All Over”

So what do you think?  I honestly don’t know what to think.  It has been confirmed that Beyonce has collabored with Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Sia for her album.  So if this is the real tracklist, this album is going to be FIYAH!!!

The only thing that leads me to believe it’s fake is all the collaborations.  True Beyonce fans know that it’s unusual for her to have so many collaborations on one album.  Beyonce’s last album, 4, only had one song with another artist and that was “Party” with Andre 3000.

However, Beyonce revealed in her documentary that she struggles with what to do in order to stay current, so this may be her way of doing that.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
