Details about Beyonce’s upcoming fifth studio album have been sparse. Queen Bey has yet to announce a name or release date for the expected 2013 album.
This week, however, a leaked photo posted to Twitter and Facebook announced all of the album’s details, from the title to the release date to the tracklisting. The photo was assumed to be fake, with Idolator reporting, “A very reliable source tells us that this tracklist is absolutely fake. Boo hiss.”
The image was posted to a Beyonce news Facebook account, with the caption reading, “A guy from Stargate accidentally leaked this photo from the studio where Beyonce [is] recording her 5th album.” Stargate is a production team that Beyonce has worked with in the past.
The photo (shown below) calls Bey’s next album, “Mrs. Carter” — a move that would line up with the singer’s upcoming tour, The Mrs. Carter Show. The notebook sheet also includes an April 11 release date and reveals alleged collaborations with Lady Gaga, Azealia Banks, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, and Rihanna.
A rep from Beyonce’s team would not comment on the leaked tracklist to MTV.
Speaking about the upcoming album to Vogue, Beyonce called the new music “empowering” and “a lot more sensual” than her past albums.
The full (likely fake) tracklist is shown below.
- “Ratchet” (feat. Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks)
- “Back 2 Business” (feat. Jay-Z)
- “Roller Coaster” (feat. Justin Timberlake)
- “Visions” (feat. Sia)

- “More Than Sex” (feat. Ne-Yo)
- “Better Than Ever Before” (feat. Solange Knowles)
