Is Beyoncé’s new album coming TONIGHT?! A very serious investigation

B7 might be here by the weekend and I’m simply not ready

Try not to freak out – but I think Beyoncé might be releasing new music this weekend.

If you’re as terminally on Twitter as I am, you’ll undoubtedly have seen her name trending literally every single day. Usually, it isn’t for anything in particular. She’s clearly just an icon. But overnight, #beyonceisBACK began making the rounds after the star deleted all her profile pictures.

The new era might *finally* be here after years of waiting – here’s every single crumb of evidence we have:

Beyoncé’s deleted all her profile pics – clearly indicating a new era

Right, hear me out. The Beyhive might be worried Beyoncé is teasing us with a new Ivy Park drop, diet plan or unrelated project, but she only ever fully deletes her profile pictures at the dawn of a new era.

The last time she did this was in 2016. In the space of just 48 hours, Beyoncé deleted her branding, released Formation and announced a fifth world tour. Be scared. It looks like we’re in for a wild weekend.

She randomly posted a new Instagram pic after three months

She’s been radio silent since March, so why did Beyoncé choose now to post a new picture?

Aside from, like, EVERYTHING ABOUT HER, this photo looks pretty normal. But, she posted an unremarkable pic of herself with a lemon before the last era, so y’know.

There could be a number of hidden clues within this image – she’s wearing red lipstick, standing against a red background and there are red flowers on her dress. What does this mean????

It’s been SIX WHOLE YEARS since Lemonade

Beyoncé usually waits a three-year gap before releasing new music. From Dangerously in Love in 2003 to Lemonade in 2016, she famously likes to spend a year off before getting back to the studio.

Obviously, she’s been really busy the last six years – but this double-wait must be significant in some way. Will the album have twice as many songs? Is this a retirement album? WHO KNOWS.

Obviously, because she’s been holed up in her home studio working unsociable hours. Or, maybe we’re about to get an album AND a tour. Think about it.

Oh… and there’s literally a page on her website for B7

There may not be anything on it – but it exists.
