Beyonce responds to album leak

Beyonce still has three weeks to go before her album’s official release date on June 28, but some have already heard her upcoming album “4” in full.

The record leaked in its entirety on Tuesday. It trickled out with the single “Party,” featuring Andre 3000, which was followed by the leak of “Countdown," according to the Los Angeles Times. Before long, the 12-track album was in circulation.

It sounds like from the statement the 29-year-old singer posted on her Facebook page that she’s looking for the positive in this situation.

“My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans,” Beyonce said Wednesday. “When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs."

But if fans are thinking “4” will be close in kind to “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” they should think again. As Rolling Stone explains, “4” is “a change of pace…a more relaxed, personal set that emphasizes ballads over bangers and showcases the singer’s nuances…the sort of album a pop star makes when she doesn’t feel like she has anything to prove.”

    Betonce is not worth $500 million. Forbes magazines list of the top 100 celebrities has her at about $38 million approx. She didnt even make the top 10 on the list for Christ Sake! The leak was a definate PR stunt done by her/her people. Come on now. How stupid does she really think her fans are? We saw this coming a mile away. And yes she sure is getting whiter and whiter as the yrs go by. Whats up w/that? To me its like shes ashamed to be black. Put away that blonde weave and go back to who you used to be

    Beyonce and her people leaked this "anticipated" album. She jealous because Kelly is actually singing songs waaaaay better than her stupid songs. Kelly's video is actually a video and not someone swinging a blonde wig around. Now all of a sudden Beyonce wants to do more ballads than bangers, ugh. She trying to derail Kelly, her "friend". She so fake, and that album cover doesn't look like her. Look like she's trying to look like Shakira. I thought she was a black singer she's looking more white as the years go by.

    First, Kelly has the #1 RnB record in the country...congratulations! Not the #1 RECORD in the country, That honor belongs to Adele. Second, BEYONCE has held both honors several times, she's not on a mission to derail Kelly's achievements. Third, BEYONCE is worth $500-freakin'-million dollars...everyone else in the industry is trying to catch up/compete with HER! Hate it or Love it, BEYONCE IS KING/QUEEN!!!!!!!!

    I think it's funny, and a little pathetic that so many 'men' feel her songs bash men. She's empowering women, and making it known that you don't have to depend on a man fo have it all. No where on her CD does she indicate that men are beneath or inadequte to her.

    So for all the 'men' who feel she's bashing you, go back to your "mama's house" and let the real men come take their place by some of us outstanding ladies!

    Albums tend to be leaked when the lead off single(s) don't perform as well as other hits the artist has had. Leaking the album gives the record company an idea of which song(s) people prefer. It's a marketing tactic. Honestly her first single off this album wasn't catchy until I saw her perform it. But a good single(to me) is one that I can enjoy without needing an elaborate visual.

      At 0.99 cents even "non-lil Monsters" might buy it still and probably did. Read some of the reviews on Amazon. A lot of people who weren't even fans bought it because it was .99 cents, not because they were big fans of her. She has a big fanbase, i'm aware of that, and i'm not arguing about her status as a popular artist (so don't go there with the self-defensive act), i'm just saying that harping on about her making 1 million is nothing new or special esp. if she sold it for so cheap (plus she's not the first to sell a million in one week).

    I don't get why it's reported that an album from a major artist is "leaked" or that he or she may cry a river over lost revenue. The album is always leaked coincidently a week or a couple of days before the album is released. These days, a "leaked" album is a calculated marketing tool, and a successful one at that. Plus, most revenue comes from touring, hence is why no artist does or should complain about losing money from their album being "leaked."

      I've been waiting for that since the 90s dude. Her first cd was amazing. She recently performed 2 songs on the Jimmy Fallon Show though, and that could hold me over for years to come. It's almost sad that her tv performance was probably better than most live shows I've been to.

      I like maybe 5-6 Beyonce (solo) songs total. As a group it was harmonic and catchy, as a solo artist, it's typical female pop. I realize 25 year old straight guys aren't her core demographic, but her albums don't offer much of an eclectic mix of sounds aside from their singles. Sasha Fierce was ok, I enjoyed maybe 3-4 songs total.

    A guy was speeding 120 M/H a policeman chased him for 20 mile till the guy did not have gas and stopped….the cop approached the window to talk to the driver…he asked him: did you see that I told you to stop? Yes said the guy. So why you did not stop? And the guy answered:
    2 weeks ago a cop run away with my wife…and I was so afraid that he wants to return her to me…….

    I think in some cases, an album leaking out can be a good thing. Gaga took control of this and previewed many of her own songs, and 'Born This Way' sold gangbusters.

      In Lady Gaga's case, she sold as much as she did for Born This Way because it sold for .99 cents on Any major artist can sell millions by charging so little, it's not really that hard or incredible.

    Why would she care? It's not like it's her music. She doesn't write, play an instumenf or sing anything relevate to our generation. Just background noise when you are out shopping or the beach.

      Agreed Beyonce is a good performer but no singer and we've seen all her dance moves and most her body already so there's nothing really more to be happening. Its like she's doing the same thing which isn't really exciting just wearing new clothes well hardly wearing. She's not saying anything new and not a soul singer so its kinda boring. Same old same old but guys like her its always a show for them most don't care what she sounds like anyway... Not a hater just keepn it real, there is a difference. I can say how I feel. Like I said she's a great performer.

    Columbia, her record company, leaked the album on purpose because the response to her initial single, Girls (Who Run the World) was so negative. They needed to prove that the album was actually good, which it is.....but what a horrible choice for a first single.

      Quite sure it was a joint decision to leak the album....between her and the reps at her record label.....i just don't get why people still waste time making these stories up about an album being mysteriously leaked......are we to believe that an artist of her caliber can't protect her music? Yeah right.....

    Somebody with Beyonces fame should expect things like this to happen. Shes by no means the only artist that has to deal w/things like this. She should be happy/thankful that her fans are that anxious to hear her music. Personally I think it sucks. But thats just my opinion.
