Beyonce targeted in fake album leak… after fans rejoiced believing two new ‘Queen Carter’ records had secretly dropped on Spotify and Apple Music

Beyonce has NOT released two new albums.

The Beyhive rejoiced and despaired on Thursday night when a pair of new records supposedly by the singer turned out to be fakes.

Excitement grew when two new projects by ‘Queen Carter’ suddenly appeared on both Apple Music and Spotify: One titled ‘Back Up, Rewind’, the other ‘Have Your Way.’ 

Nope: Beyonce was targeted in a fake album leak on Thursday

However in all the excitement, few noticed that all of the tracks were old B-sides or previously recorded songs.

Fewer still questioned why Beyonce would release new music on Apple and Spotify, both of which are rivals to her husband Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal. 

The albums were taken down just hours after they appeared.

Beyonce wasn’t the only artist to suffer a fake album leak on Thursday; hours beforehand SZA had almost the exact same thing happen.

Under the artist name ‘Sister Solana’, a collection of her old tunes were leaked online.

President of Top Dawg Entertainment Punch confirmed on Twitter that the release was not an official one, and that somebody had stolen older tracks and released them without permission.

‘There is no new SZA album out. Old songs were stolen and leaked,’ he tweeted. ‘We are currently fixing the issue. Please feel free to continue enjoying Ctrl until the next album is ready.’

Beyonce’s last real album release was 2016’s critically acclaimed Lemonade.

She was most recently spotted on a date with her hubby on Wednesday, checking out Travis Scott’s Astroworld – Wish You Were Here concert at The Forum in LA’s Inglewood neighborhood.
