The Queen is coming after her crown.
According to the Mirror (citing reports), “the songstress will be announcing a surprise new record and world tour in just a matter of weeks.” Supposedly it’s going to happen after she performs the Super Bowl halftime show with Coldplay.
Now, we’re not going to believe anything until we hear it from Queen Bey herself. That being said, as we all know, we should be prepared and ready (and by now come to expect) for Bey to surprise drop anything, at anytime, like she did with Beyoncé at the end of 2013, which sold over 500,000 in 24 hours after its surprise release.
Furthermore, the reports are saying that Beyoncé’s new album, her sixth, has actually been ready since the end of 2015, but because of Adele’s sweeping success over the entire music world after her November of 25, Bey has subsequently held off from releasing it.
A music insider told The Sun:
Beyonce has totally relaxed her schedule and pushed back her album, which is now complete and ready to go. It was wrapped up at the end of 2015 but she held off on a release as a code of honour to Adele, so their records didn’t clash.
Beyonce doesn’t have the pressure of releasing an album and is doing bits here and there because she and her team know it is Adele’s time to shine. The last few months have been all about her comeback. Now Adele’s sales are starting to die down, Beyonce is ready to drop her album at any time. But there’s a very strong chance the announcement could happen during the Super Bowl next month.
Understandably so. To put it simply, Adele smashed records.
