Beyoncé’s new album Renaissance leaked online a couple of days before it was released to the public. A fan posted an image on Twitter of what appeared to be the anticipated album in CD format. Also, a few tracks began showing up online for the world to hear. Despite the leak, Beyoncé’s loyal fan base stood in line to finally get their hands on her first solo album in six years.
After the official drop on July 29th, Queen Bey thanked all her fans who managed to ignore the leak. The pop star posted a special message on Twitter expressing her love and gratitude.
So, the album leaked, and you all actually waited until the proper release time so you all can enjoy it together. I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t thank ya’ll enough for your love and protection. I appreciate you for calling out anyone that was trying to sneak into the club early. It means the world to me.
Thank you for your unwavering support. Thank you for being patient. We are going to take our time and enjoy the music. I will continue to give my all and do my best to bring you joy. I love you deep.
Beyoncé’s fan club, Beyhive, began sending alerts online warning everyone about the leaks. They asked anyone who came across one of the new tracks to report it on social media. The new album was inspired by Beyoncé’s gay uncle, Johnny, who tragically passed away due to complications with HIV.
