Beyonce, is that you? With new music? Hold on, this is a surreal moment.
Indeed, it's true, even if Queen Bey didn't intend it that way. "God Made You Beautiful" -- of which we'd heard a snippet during the trailer for the documentary "Life is But a Dream" -- leaked in full on Friday. The "Halo"-esque ode to Blue Ivy is part of a free giveaway in conjunction with "Dream" preorders, which makes a leak seem inevitable anyway.
Still, Beyonce fans can rejoice, considering the dearth of new material from the singer. Her next album was once rumored to be arriving this month, but in July, one of her reps denied that a release date had ever been set. Rumors flew that Beyonce had "scrapped" the album, but since then, we've learned that Sia wrote a song for it and that, according to Pharrell Williams, it's almost done and it's "crazy."
Like almost everything else surrounding Beyonce's forthcoming work, it's unclear whether "God Made You Beautiful" will appear on the album. We've heard other potential candidates for the tracklist, including "Bow Down," "Standing on the Sun" and "Epic" soundtrack entry "Rise Up." Listen to "Beautiful" below.
