Now that the buzz has hushed about the confirmed release of Beyoncé's upcoming album (we kid, Bey buzz never quiets), the speculation about those other mystery tracks, like "Donk," "Good in Good Bye" and a Justin Timberlake collab called "Renouncement" may now be addressed.
"It's completely made up," Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, general manager at Bey's Parkwood Entertainment told Billboard about a supposed tracklist belonging to a "secret" Beyoncé album titled Beyoncé Volume 2.
Callahan-Longo said the rumors about another surprise release from the singer seemed so real, that they were forced to set the record straight with the announcement of Beyoncé: the Platinum Edition Box Set. “After all the hubbub this weekend, we kind of said, 'Well, let’s just put it out and say what it is.'"
Some rogue , or perhaps rabid, BeyHivers went so far as to forge a document from Bey's record label home and to track down what music she has officially registered with ASCAP, but there's no hard feelings.
'It’s funny, I got a bunch of calls over the weekend and I would say, 'It’s exciting to know people are excited,'" Callahan-Longo continued. "Even if they’re reporting it wrong, and that people would take their time to go and create a fake one-sheet — right down to using a Columbia logo on it ... You could never have imagined their creativity. So seeing some of those [song] names, that was so fun and exciting."
