Is Beyoncé Planning to Re-Release Her Album?
Is Beyoncé about to surprise us with another album? Rumors suggest that the singer is working on a repackage of her self-titled LP.
Last December, Bey left the music industry in shock when she dropped her self-titled visual album out of the blue on iTunes. But Amazon may have blown her cover this time around.
The online retailer’s U.K. site has entered a new version of Bey’s self-titled album into its database for pre-order. The description lists it as a four-CD set with a release date of November 24.
To add more fuel to the rumors, a sell sheet for an album titled Beyoncé Volume 2 surfaced online earlier in the day with a November 14 digital release date. The tracklisting claims new collaborations with Rihanna on “Cherry,” Nicki Minaj on “Donk” (ASCAP corroborates the “Donk” title), and Justin Timberlake on “Renouncement.”
They also claim that a four-disc physical edition, including DVDs of “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” and HBO’s “On the Run Tour,” will hit stores on Monday, November 25 (Monday is actually the 24th). While we doubt its authenticity, you can check it out below.

Billboard reached out to Bey’s camp for comment, but didn’t hear back. What we do know is that Bey is a master of surprise (who else could shoot 17 videos in secrecy?), so you never know what could happen.
The rumor mill has also been buzzing about a joint album from Mr. and Mrs. Carter with a 2015 release date.
