The track list floating around the Internet that was supposedly off of a surprise album from Beyonce has been confirmed to be fake.
“It’s completely made up,” Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, general manager of Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment, said to Billboard. “After all the hubbub this weekend, we kind of said, ‘Well, let’s just put it out and say what it is.’ It’s funny, I got a bunch of calls over the weekend and I would say, ‘It’s exciting to know people are excited.’ Even if they’re reporting it wrong, and that people would take their time to go and create a fake one-sheet — right down to using a Columbia logo on it. I would love to know who did it. They clearly knew what a line sheet used to look like – they don’t look that anymore.”
The actual album, a four-disc “Platinum Edition” of Beyonce, was never planned to be a secret, Lee Anne added.
As for if Bey will ever drop another surprise ever again? “You can only be first once, so I’m not sure we’d want to do it again. We typically at Parkwood like to look at projects where, if it isn’t unique or different in some way, it’s really not interesting to us,” she added.
