That 'leaked' Beyonce track list was fake
Beyoncé fans momentarily freaked this weekend when a document containing details about a new Beyoncé album began circulating online. It seemed fake, and as it turns out, it was.
The document in question was a piece of paper that included a track listing and release dates for both Beyonce— Self Titled—Volume 2 and Beyonce—The Complete Edition. But, alas, it didn’t actually come from Beyoncé’s team. “It’s completely made up,” Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, the general manager of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, told Billboard.
But there’s some truth to it: Columbia Records announced Tuesday that Beyoncé will be releasing a “platinum edition box set” that will include her self-titled album along with remixes and two new tracks.
“After the hubbub this weekend, we kind of said, ‘Well, let’s just put it out and say what it is.’ It’s funny, I got a bunch of calls over the weekend and I would say, ‘It’s exciting to know people are excited,'” Callahan-Longo told Billboard. “Even if they’re reporting it wrong, and that people would take their time to go and create a fake one-sheet — right down to using a Columbia logo on it.”
Beyoncé’s box set will be available Nov. 24.
