Christmas has come early! Beyoncé’s new album Formation is gloriously gracing our lives a bit sooner than expected, and we are low-key peeing our pants with excitement. A release confirmation from Columbia Records has been circulating, confirming that the album will be released in just a few days. Here’s the real kicker—the release date is listed as April 1. So, is it safe to assume that this might be a cruel and unusual April Fools’ joke?

We’ve pretty much all been salivating at the mouth waiting for the release of Beyoncé’s next album (let’s be real we salivate every time she speaks or even takes a breath) ever since her crazy amazing song “Formation” came out. Any confirmation that Bey will be dropping her new songs on us is enough to incite some excitement, but what makes this release from Columbia Records even more crucial is the tracklist itself, which features Frank Ocean, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Adele. We literally went into cardiac arrest just looking at those names.
So, yeah we want to freak out and jump around for joy, but with that April 1 release date, it’s safe to say that we are pretty suspicious of this situation. What do you guys think? Can we trust this rumor, or should we start preparing to cry our eyes out and ultimately wither and perish?
