Beyoncé lit up the internet this weekend after dropping surprise new track ‘Formation’.
With news that Beyoncé was due to join Coldplay and Bruno Mars on stage during the Super Bowl 50 Half-Time Show, rumours were running high about the big announcement she was reported to make. Most of those rumours were put to rest on Saturday night when she unexpectedly dropped her brand new single ‘Formation’ through Tidal and accompanying video through YouTube.
Following her electrifying performance during the Half-Time Show, it was immediately followed by an advertisement for her upcoming Formation World Tour. Due to start in North America in April, she will also perform a handful of European dates, landing in the UK in July 2016. Tickets will go on general sale on Monday 15th February, with priority tickets going on sale from Tuesday 9th February.
So, we’ve had the new single, which can be downloaded for free, and the announcement of a tour. But knowing how Beyoncé likes to surprise her fans, the next question is what about an album release?
