Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” album apparently got an early release.

The artist’s seventh studio album appears to have leaked to social media on Wednesday, two days before the set’s release, according to Variety. Social media went into a frenzy with fans sharing mixed feelings about the alleged leak.

Many fans are now looking for a way to spread the highly anticipated album, while others are urging people to wait until Beyoncé released the album herself on Friday.

A representative for Beyoncé and her record company did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.


The “Break My Soul” singer, 40, posted the official tracklist on Instagram last week. Song titles include “America Has a Problem”, “Church Girl”, “Alien Superstar”, “Cuff It”, “Thique”, and “All Up in Your Mind”.

Building anticipation for the album’s release, Beyoncé released the cover art for “Renaissance” earlier this month. The work depicts the mother of three children seated on the silhouette of a horse.

The caption accompanying the cover read: “Creating this album allowed me to dream and escape in a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when nothing else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free from perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, to release, to feel freedom.”


The ‘Lion King’ actress continued, “It’s been a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to let go. Ha! feel as unique, strong and sexy as you are.”

Last month, Beyoncé released a single from the album titled “Break My Soul.” According to Variety, the singer’s latest album will feature dance and country style tracks.
