Beyoncé confirms new songs for platinum album release

The surprise reissue of last year's album will include two new tracks and original remixes featuring Pharrell, Jay Z and Kanye

Everyone lost their minds this weekend over the rumour that Beyoncé might be getting ready to drop a brand new album in November, a la last year's eponymous record. The bad news is that BEYONCÉ Volume 2 is fake. The good news is that Beyoncé is releasing something: a four-disc limited edition BEYONCÉ Platinum Edition box set that contains two new songs and four new remixes with Pharrell, Jay Z, Kanye West and Jamaican dancehall star Mr Vegas. 

Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia has confirmed the release, which drops on Monday 24 November. The two new songs are titled "7/11" and "Ring Off". Pharrell is popping up on a remix of "Blow", Jay Z and Kanye will cameo on "Drunk In Love", and Mr Vegas will appear on "Standing On The Sun". The Nick Minaj remix of "Flawless" will also be on the record.

That's alongside the regular album from 2013 and a DVD of its 17 music videos. To sweeten the deal, the box set also contains a DVD of the Mrs Carter Show World Tour with Jay Z with a photo booklet, as well as the "official 2015 Beyoncé mini calendar".

So there you go. It's no new BEYONCÉbut it's as close as you're going to get. On a side note, this totally explains why Nicki Minaj shifted The Pinkprint album release from 24 November to 15 December.
