With Beyoncé releasing her new single “Formation” and announcing tour dates for late April,  all signs point to her next studio album “B6” being released in late April as well. While details regarding the highly anticipated disc have been safeguarded, contributing to the anticipation is producer Detail. Detail, who worked on “Drunk In Love” and “7’11”, posted a photo of he and Queen Bey while attending Kelly Rowland’s 35th birthday festivities. Although the emoji-laden caption was as mysterious as the album details, it did elude to the fact that the two have been working together again. The producer even commented on his own photo that “new music iz coming”. Naturally, this news didn’t get past the BeyHive. Nothing does.
