The Internet is a-boast with cries of "fool me once!" after the official announcement of Beyonce
's new album. The Platinum Edition Box Set
may have started out as a surprise release like the self-titled album
it is based on, but after a photo leak and a collective heart attack yesterday, Bey fans like us knew what was coming
The new edition will come out on November 24th (it's a Monday, so clear your schedule now while there's time) and will feature some exciting new content in all its 2 CD/2 DVD glory. Along with unheard new tracks like '7/11' and 'Ring Off,' Queen Bey is treating us to four new remixes, including a 'Flawless' collaboration with Nicki Minaj
and a new version of 'Drunk In Love' featuring hubby Jay-Z
and not hubby Kanye West
. What's more, there will be a live DVD from the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour for the poor sad few who missed it, which includes exclusive artist commentary and a lil' book of pictures. There's also a 2015 Beyonc calendar that I confidently expect to see hanging almost everywhere I go next year.
For those who already own the visual album, there will an opportunity to add the extras. In the meantime, you can preorder it now (just in time for the holidays!).
