We all crave new Beyoncé music every day, because without her collection of life-altering tunes, where would we be? God knows.
Mysterious music was leaked online the other day on iTunes, totally unauthorised.
The musical goddess has been known to randomly drop albums, ever since 2016's iconic Lemonade release, but this seemed a little too random…fans quickly realised it was old music though:

The old recordings were released under the name Queen Carter, and iTunes somehow allowed it to be uploaded until fans pointed out the strange mistake.
The albums Back Up, Rewind and Have Your Way appeared on Apple Music and Spotify, and was comprised of demos, unreleased tracks and demo songs by Queen Bey, which were removed a few hours later.
Songs such as After All Is Said and Done, a duet with Marc Nelson from 1999, Hollywood with Jay-Z from his 2006 album Kingdom Come, and another song from Austin Powers called Hey Goldmember.
A Missy Elliot collaboration from the rapper's second album was also on the tracklist, as well as Keep Giving Your Love to Me from Bad Boys II, and Control, a stand-alone song.
Omg, someone is using the name “Queen Carter” & dropping albums w/ Beyoncé’s old songs, it’d be ashame if they released an album called Koolaid and put all of the Lemonade album on Apple Music and Spotify… pic.twitter.com/zloI1DzmWE

Beyoncé has dropped her last three albums as surprises, her 2013 self-titled project, Lemonade, and Everything is Love by The Carters.
We'll take ANYTHING she graciously offers, but unreleased songs without her authorisation is damn wrong, let the Queen have control over her own music.
Grammy-nominated R&B singer SZA was also victim to this same mysterious hacking, with old music being uploaded to iTunes under the name Sister Solana (her real name is Solana Rowe).
SZA addressed the album of old demo tracks being released on streaming services on her Instagram, calling the project "random scratches from 2015" and claimed that the songs are "def not new new!"
It's all very mysterious behaviour altogether.
Apple Music and Spotify have yet to comment on the matter, but we'd bet that Beyoncé ain't happy about this at all.
Who is the culprit making drama for no apparent reason, though? Spill the lemonade tea.
