BeyHive, prepare for a new Beyoncé album. Many fans hoped Queen Bey had a new LP on the way after her Super Bowl 50 performance, but now there’s finally some confirmation that the project actually exists.
Bey’s longtime stylist Ty Hunter made the big announcement during an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Monday (Feb. 8). “I’ve heard the new album. It’s beyond awesome, it’s great,” he told host Andy Cohen.
He also weighed in on Bey’s halftime show, which was styled by Marni Senofonte. “Everything was awesome to me,” said Hunter.
While the new album doesn’t have a release date, don’t be surprised if it drops unexpectedly like 2013’s self-titled LP, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The BeyHive has more to celebrate this year. In addition to releasing her Mike WiLL Made-It-produced single “Formation” and its Melina-directed video over the weekend, ‘Yoncé has also announced “The Formation World Tour,” which is set to kick off April 27 in Miami.
Fans aren’t the only ones benefiting from “Formation.” Red Lobster’s sales have apparently soared after being name-checked on the track, according to CNBC. The 33 percent sales boost has even made them think about renaming menu items in honor of Beyoncé.
