After Beyonce removed her profile photos from social media platforms last week and many fans are convinced that new music is on the horizon, the BeyHive is in an uproar.
The 40-year-old artist has taken her profile picture off accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. However, the content appears to be unchanged.
Fans still interpret this to indicate that something new is coming from "Formation".
A spokesperson for the singer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Beyonce is well-known for surprise album drops and online cryptic messages.
She dropped her self-titled album, without any prior marketing, on iTunes in December 2013. The self-titled album was simultaneously released as a visual album. She announced the release on Instagram with the one word, "Surprise!"
Teen Vogue cites that release as "one of the most significant moments in music" and a game-changer.
Many people hope that an album will be released, but others suggest that Beyonce could release anything, from new athleisure clothes to a non-fungible token.
Since 2016's "Lemonade," the "Drunk In Love" singer has not released a solo studio record.
Harper's Bazaar was informed by Beyonce in August 2021 that she was working on new music.
She said that she had been working in the studio for about a year. Sometimes it takes me a while to search through thousands upon thousands of sounds in order to find the perfect kick or snare. A chorus may have as many as 200 stacked harmony. There is nothing that can compare to the love, passion, healing, and joy I feel in the recording room. It feels as thrilling as it did when it was my first year of recording. The music is coming!
Beyonce performed "Be Alive" from her Oscar-nominated album, which she co-wrote with Dixson earlier this year.
