Ring the alarm! Beyoncé is back with a new album!
Or is she?
Rumors of a new Beyoncé project began heating up when a mysterious Instagram page popped up last month. The account features black and white imagery and follows a select group of prominent accounts, including Netflix, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Tidal and Queen Bey herself.
The rumors have continued to roll in, and Monday, the rumor mill turned red hot when screenshots that allegedly show the new album's cover and tracklist hit social media:

If the photos are accurate, the album's tracklist will be: "Summer Days" (feat. SZA & Wizkid), "Hold My Beer," "Sun," "Nefertiti," "Eclipse," "Goodbye" (feat. Rihanna), "Love Me (Not)," "Roses" (feat. Kelendria), "This Love," "Freak Daddy," "I Go" (feat. Normani), "That Song," "Watermelon" and "Life" (feat. Rumi, Sir, & Blue Ivy).
Of course, the appearance of features such as Rihanna and a much-anticipated debut of Sir and Rumi had folks shook. But, as Bey would say … hold up.
The rumored album may be titled Rose IV You or Roses, but something smells fishy here.
First, the screenshots supposedly come from a Spotify playlist. Fans wondered why the album would debut there since Bey has her competing streaming platform. As Refinery 29 points out, due to the singer's relationship with Tidal, her latest solo album, Lemonade, still isn't streaming on the popular music platform.
Second, a Twitter sleuth mentioned the supposed album cover uses an image from the "Partition" music video. Obvious, much?
Here is the exact #ROSEIVYOU and Partition side-by-side. It's fake. Everybody calm down. Hopefully #B7 soon come, but this ain't it. pic.twitter.com/oOdYbXHX4L

Welp. Guess we'll be waiting on the new Bey just a little bit longer.
