Even megastars like Beyoncé can’t escape the power of the Internet, as the singer’s rumoured new Timbaland-produced single, Standing On The Sun, is thought to have been leaked online. Boo for Bey, yay for us!
It’s not yet known if the new track, which you may recognise from the 31-year-old mum-of-one’s H&M ad campaign, will be officially released as a single off Beyoncé’s long-awaited new album, but a full length version of the song has appeared on YouTube anyway for all to enjoy.
Team Bey has reacted to the leak, tweeting that the song was merely sent to radio stations earlier this month to gain feedback – not because it will be the songstress’s next single.
“For those who don’t know, it’s normal for artists/labels to send songs to radio stations MONTHS before any official release to review”, tweeted BeyonceExclusive. “To review doesn’t mean to play as ‘singles’, it means to see if it’s good enough, if it can be a future single, share opinions etc.”
Either way, we’re always happy to hear new material from Queen Bey. Have a little listen yourself below!
