On Tuesday Beyoncé‘s new album, 4, leaked to the Internet exactly three weeks before its June 28 release date. But the R&B diva seems to be taking it all in fierce stride.

Rather than sweeping the issue under the rug, she used her Facebook page to address it. Read her statement here:

“My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans. When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs.”

That’s pretty cool of her, expressing that she’s a little ticked about the leak—but also being thankful that fans are geeked to hear her new material.
