While Beyonce fans are still coming down off the high that was Beychella, many have been anticipating an album as a follow up to her critically acclaimed Lemonade which was released over two years ago in April 2016. Many just knew the album would drop, perhaps by surprise, before she went on tour with husband Jay Z for the second time.
The tour kicked off on June 6th in the UK, but no album dropped.
Many fans were wondering what was going on? She’s never before in her career started a tour without new music, so this seemed unprecedented.
Not only that but Jay Z did release a new album late last year, which acted as a bit of a response to Lemonade.
One of the reasons for the lack of an album may be that Beyonce got pregnant with twins, Sir and Rumi, during the latter half of the Formation world tour.
However, she did manage to tour for six months.
So it looks like more than anything, this tour is a way for her and Jay-Z to appear as a united front publically after the very revealing content of her Lemonade album and his 4:44 album.
Whatever the reason, her fans aren’t really here for it. They expected an album and because Beyonce is the queen of elusive and things not explicitly stated, they figured she just wasn’t openly promoting one.
But being full of surprises, one could still technically be released, even if the first couple of tour date locations didn’t get new music, most people wouldn’t be too upset about it.
Twins Sir and Rumi turn 1 year old on June 13th so something may conspicuously be released then.
For now, it’s all just speculation. Beyonce continues to keep the world on their toes and perched with bated breath.
