It's been almost a year since Beyoncé dropped a surprise album and forever changed the game, and rumor has it she's at it again. Over the weekend, an alleged screenshot of a memo from Beyoncé's label Parkside Entertainment/Columbia announcing the release of a four-disc package that will include a re-up of last year's record breaking self-titled album, as well as eleven new songs on a compilation called Beyoncé: The Complete Edition, a whopping 28 music videos, and footage from the Mrs. Carter Show and On The Run World tours. A few elements of the memo check out: among the new material listed is a The-Dream and Pharrell collaboration called "DONK" and a long-whispered about "Blow" flip featuring Rihanna– both of which have been registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), according to Vulture.
If the leaked memo is real and to be believed, the package is slated to drop online November 14 and in physical form on November 25. That later date, granted, is where the news' validity begins to falter: the memo lists November 25 as a Monday, when in actuality it's a Tuesday. Spin, however, points to a new Amazon.uk presale page for the package that slots its release as November 24, which is a Monday, so maybe someone just misread their calendar? The FADER has reached out to Columbia, and is awaiting comment.
