Leaked Photo Suggests Beyoncé Is Planning a Second “Surprise” Album

Is Beyoncé back for seconds? A mysterious photo of a document labeled “release confirmation” hit the Internet this weekend, suggesting that Beyoncé’s eponymous 2013 surprise album may spawn a four-disc re-release titled Beyoncé, Vol. 2. If the information in the image is legit, it’d seem Bey was planning a second hush-hush LP that would include last year’s release along with 14 new tracks (including “***Flawless (Remix)” with Nicki Minaj and her long-thirsted Rihanna collaboration, titled “Cherry”), plus DVDs of videos for every song, footage from the Mrs. Carter World Tour, and the Paris stop of her On the Run tour with Jay Z. Basically, a holiday season bundle intended to make the Bey Hive explode (again).



While neither Parkwood Entertainment nor Columbia Records have addressed the leaked document, it seems to be steeped in some reality. A new song called “Donk,” which appears on the unverified track listing as a second Nicki Minaj feature, has been registered on ASCAP, with Pharrell Williams and The-Dream contributions. If this isn’t some sick joke, the spoiled surprise would hit iTunes on Friday, November 14, according to the photo.

T.I. and Jeezy Are Working on a Joint Album Called Dope Boy Academy

It seems the South may have its own version of Watch the Throne coming soon. Atlanta kings T.I. and Jeezy have confirmed that wheels are turning on their long-awaited Dope Boy Academy album. The two former drug-dealers-turned-super-MCs feel the timing is finally right for the collaborative LP. “This is one of the first times that we are both putting our albums out around the same time,” Tip told MTV News, adding that the duo already has six or seven records in the stash. “Now we can collectively come together and do something together.” Jeezy, who released his Seen It All: The Autobiography album in September, has already hopped on the remix to T.I.’s “About the Money,” along with Young Thug and Lil Wayne. “That’s my brother from another right there,” Jeezy said. “Keep your eyes and your ears open.”

Rihanna Returns to Instagram

Guess who’s bizzack! The most provocative and controversial celebrity Instagramer—the Dalai Lama of IG—Rihanna has made her return to the photo and video sharing service. A day after dressing up for Halloween as the most badass Ninja Turtle, Raphael, the badgalriri account remerged late Saturday (November 1) with a selfie of the 26-year-old singer’s face upside-down and the caption, “Hellurrr #badgalback.” Rih Rih’s titillating Instagram account was suspended back in May, after she violated the social network’s terms of use by posting topless photos from a French magazine shoot. Other photo fiascos included a shot of the Bajan superstar next to an Abu Dhabi mosque and another with an endangered slow loris, which resulted in two Thai men being arrested. Let’s hope this time around Rihanna (narrowly) plays by the rules.
