The Beyhive thinks so.
Is it all just a coincidence? Very likely, but then again, Beyoncé has proven herself to be someone who can keep big plans under wraps for extended periods of time. It’s not out of the question that the album was planned to drop on June 16th all along. However, that would take the fun out of fan’s theories that the release was an attempt to overtake Nasir, the new album from Jay-Z’s longtime rival Nas (who he actually seems pretty cool with), which was produced by Kanye West (who both Jay and Bey don’t seem all that cool with).
Check out the pictures above. Does the theory check out or has the Beyhive taken things a little too far this time?
