UPDATE: Vulture confirmed that the songs “Donk” and “Cherry” have been registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP). SPIN is also reporting that there is a possible listing for Beyoncé Vol. 2 on Amazon UK. It’s described as a 4-disc release and slotted for November 24.
A strange photograph just started making the rounds on Twitter today. (Originally spotted by Wondering Sound at this account.) Printed on what appears to be Columbia’s letterhead, it’s a potential tracklist for a new Beyoncé release.
Titled Beyoncé Vol. 2, the list includes all the original songs that were on last December’s release of the self-titled album, in addition to 11 new potential tracks; including the “Flawless” remix featuring Nicki Minaj that Beyoncé dropped in August. The release date listed is Friday November 14.
There also appears to be a song called “Cherry” (possible remix of “Blow”?) featuring Rihanna. If this tracklist proves to be true, it would mark the first time that the two singers have collaborated with one another.
This information has not been confirmed by Beyoncé’s camp or the singer herself, but if it is accurate then we can only speculate the leak is intentional on Bey’s part. With all the secrecy that surrounded the surprise drop of the original album, there’s no way that she would risk any information slipping through her fingers without giving permission. And, if we do see new Beyoncé come mid-November, this could explain why Minaj’s The Pinkprint was pushed back to December 15. No one should go toe-to-toe with Queen Bey, Nicki knows better than that.
