What Will Beyonce's Next Album Be Named? There Are Multiple Rumored Titles
Followers of Queen Bey believe something big is on the way. Not only is her Formation World Tour launching at the end of the month, but the Internet is convinced that new music could be released within days. What will Beyoncé's next album be named? There's no confirmed title yet, but there are a few rumors of what it could be.
One possible Beyoncé album title is B6, according to Billboard. This suggestion is rooted in a deleted tweet from Bey's producer, Boots, that "B6 is dope." He added, "this is the most exciting album i've ever worked on." One photo that claimed to be of a Beyoncé album release confirmation suggested that the title could be Formation, E! reported. As TIME pointed out, though, there are multiple new Beyoncé track lists making their way around the Internet, so it's difficult to verify if any of them are actually legitimate.
No matter what Beyoncé's new album is called, fans are hoping they get to hear it soon. It's likely that Beyoncé would plan an album release to happen before the Formation World Tour begins at the end of April, according to USA Today; new music would give her fresh material for a summer of concerts. Some speculate that the album will be released on April 4, in tandem with her Elle cover and on the same day as her wedding anniversary.
Fans know Queen Bey likes to keep them guessing. Beyoncé's surprise album release in 2013 stunned everyone; according to Rolling Stone, she released 14 songs and 17 videos at the same time. The singer has been spotted on multiple sets in L.A. recently, Billboard reported; it suggests that her new album may deliver a similar focus on a visual experience. There's plenty of potential for the inclusion of seriously stellar collaborators, too. D.R.A.M., Future, Jay Z, and Sia are all rumored to be on the album. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was also reportedly on the set of one of Beyoncé's videos, according to Us Weekly.
The Formation World Tour will kick off on April 27 at Miami, Florida's Marlins Park. Though the show is sold out, tickets still appear to be available for the April 29 performance in Tampa, Florida, at Raymond James Stadium. Beyoncé will tour all the way through July, ending her run in Brussels, Belgium, on July 31.
While fans wait to find out whether they'll get another surprise album release, it's a safe bet that Beyoncé knows she can take her time. Whenever she decides to release new music, the world will definitely be listening.
