Beyoncé Might Be Dropping A New Album This Month (Or Someone Might Be Toying With Our Emotions)

A photo of a Columbia Records/Parkwood Entertainment memo with a track list and release date for a second secret Beyoncé album has been floating around Twitter and PLEASE GOD LET THIS BE REAL.

The memo mentions a 4-disc set that would include both albums, 28 music videos (18 from the first volume and 10 new videos), a DVD of the Mrs. Carter Tour, and a DVD of the “On the Run Tour” live from Paris.

Beyoncé Is Partnering With Topshop For A New Fashion Line

Beyoncé will be expanding her entertainment company, Parkwood, to include a new, as-yet-unnamed fashion line in partnership with Topshop, one of Bey’s favorite brands. It’ll be debuting for Fall 2015. Her previous fashion line, House of Dereon, was discontinued in 2012.

The new line isn’t just a celebrity collaboration with Topshop — the CEO of Topshop’s parent company Arcadia, Philip Green, said that it would be “a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office.” It’s going to be based around athletic wear with a high-fashion bent — which makes sense, since practically half the woman’s life is spent dancing and working out.
