Okay everybody, breathe. Beyonce may be dropping a surprise new album as soon as April 4! The date is very special to her — it’s her wedding anniversary with Jay Z! Omg!
The beyhive’s buzzing with the exciting rumor that Beyonce could be dropping a surprise new album, just like she did with Beyonce in 2013! The release date? April 4, the same day she got hitched to Jay Z in 2008! What if she’s pulling a “Beyonce” again?
We can barely handle this. Dropping the incredibly powerful single “Formation” with no warning was fantastic in itself. Shortly after stealing the show at Super Bowl 50, she announced she’d be embarking on the “Formation” world tour, her first since the “Mrs. Carter Show” tour in 2013. The new tour begins April 27 in Miami. Yeah, it sounds like a new album will be coming at the beginning of April!
There’s more significance to the rumored April 4 release date. Beyonce’s birthday is September 4, while Jay Z’s birthday is December 4. Perfect! Fans on Twitter are speculating that Beyonce’s sixth album may also be accompanied by a mini film; the “Formation” video may be part of something much, much bigger!
Fans started freaking out about the possibility of a new album when they noticed that her VEVO page said that it had 18 more music videos (120) than you could actually watch (102). What? Sure, it could just be a typo, but why would Beyonce go on tour for the first time in three years if she didn’t have loads of new music to play?
Plus, this is what she did with the Beyonce album! She released a “visual” album, which featured a beautiful music video for each and every song. Could she be planning to do that again?
Beyonce’s rep has not yet responded to our request for info, but we’ll keep you updated — because this is way too exciting! HollywoodLifers, do you think Beyonce’s releasing a new album on April 4? Tell us in the comments!
