Outraged fans took to social media on Wednesday after Beyonce’s highly anticipated seventh studio album Renaissance was leaked two days early.
The 16-track album is the 40-year-old pop superstar’s first release in six years, and will officially release on Friday.
But audio files circulated on social media, and accessed by US media outlet Variety, are said to have given some listeners early access to the songs.
The news sparked an outraged response from Beyonce’s fans – colloquially known as Beyhive – who urged people not to share the link and listen to the recording ahead of its official release.
Following the album’s announcement, she shared a striking piece of art that shows her riding a luminescent horse, wearing only silver jewelry wrapped around her body.
“I hope you find joy in this music,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I hope it inspires you to release the shake. Ha! And to feel as unique, powerful and sexy as you are. “
Renaissance is expected to feature contributions from her husband Jay-Z, Drake, producer of Skrillex and The-Dream
