Beyonce is working on a new album, produced by Kanye West and Hit-Boy— but don’t expect to see little leaks of it popping up this time: it sounds like Bey is being a teensy bit paranoid this time around.
A source said: “She’s spent thousands hiring out the whole studios. She’s got security on the doors to ensure no one hears a whisper. She’s being strict with proceedings too, putting in 14-hour days declaring nobody leaves until it’s perfect.”
That’s definitely a different tack than she took with her last album, 4, which was basically leaked in full well before the release date.
Though she was understandably upset, posting on facebook: “My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans.
"When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new song,” it’s also pretty possible that she let the album go.
She only got upset after critics responded with a big ol’ “shmeh” to the album.
