Fake Beyonce and SZA albums surfaces on Spotify and Apple Music

The hoax ironically comes five years to the week after Beyoncé shocked fans by dropping her self-titled "visual album,",” which featured hits like “Drunk in Love” and “XO.”


A collection of the singer’s unreleased music dropped on Thursday night on various streaming services under the alias of “Queen Carter.” There are two 10-track albums, one titled Back Up, Rewind and a second one called Have Your Way, that fans are going wild over.

The two LPs include tracks like “After All Is Said and Done,” “Hey Goldmember,” Twerk,” “Black Culture” and “Keep Giving Your Love to Me.”

While the 37-year-old mega pop star is the queen of  surprise release, this may be the work of leakers, as opposed to coming from Carter camp. According to the tracklist for the two 10-track collections, Back Up, Rewind and Have Your Way, featured songs including “Hey Goldmember” from the soundtrack to the 2002 film Austin Powers in Goldmember; “After All Is Said and Done,” a duet with Marc Nelson from 1999’s soundtrack to Best Man; “Hollywood,” a collaboration with JAY-Z originally featured on his 2006 album Kingdom Come; “Crazy Feelings,” a duet with Missy Elliott; a cover of Brenda Lee’s ’50s classic “Fever”; and “Keep Giving Your Love to Me,” from the 2003 Bad Boys II soundtrack. Other titles, like “Twerk,” were less well-known.

If Beyoncé did indeed fall victim to third-party leaking, she’s not alone. SZA took to her Instagram Story on Thursday night to reveal that “new music” of hers shared to streaming services under the name “Sister Solana” was just some old cuts from 2015.

“These are random scratches from 2015. Def not new new,” the 28-year-old artist shared. “But… creative? And scary? Lol HEART U THO.. I SWEAR the new is coming!”

Additionally, Top Dog president Punch took to Twitter out a statement confirming that the songs had been stolen.

I'm a Society & Culture blogger, Columnist, PR /Journalism student . Public awareness is an essential ingredient for national mobilization. In that regard, it is my social obligation to support society's efforts in dealing with national disasters like drought, famine, deforestation, and other forms of humanitarian crises. I'm using my blog as a platform to effect social change.


  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a
    doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating
    to this.

  2. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
