Beyonce to Release New Version of Old Album

Sorry, Internet: the Nov. 24 release is not a companion album to last year's surprise drop, and there's no sign of Rihanna or Justin Timberlake

Looks like Beyonce isn't dropping another surprise album after all.

After screenshots of a reported tracklist for a Beyonce rerelease began circling the Internet on Monday, the singer's company Parkwood Entertainment and label Columbia Records clarified that the Beyonce Platinum Edition Box Set would indeed be released on Nov. 24. But rather than being a companion album to the 2013 digital surprise that sprouted "Drunk in Love" "XO" and "Flawless," the offering is actually a two-CD, two-DVD deluxe version of the self-titled album.

There are new things for the devout Beyonce fan: along with the original visual album, there's also a six-song CD called More with the new tracks "7/11" and "Ring Off," as well as remixes of Beyonce songs with Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and Mr. Vegas. Plus, don't forget the live performance DVD of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and a 2015 minicalendar of the singer.

So even though the announcement isn't confirmation of a Beyonce — Part 2 album featuring Rihanna and Justin Timberlake, as the Internet had hoped and wished for, at least it's the perfect go-to holiday gift for Beyonce fans, with two new tracks to hold them over until her next full album.
