Listen to Beyonce's Two New Tracks, "7/11" and "Ring Off"
"Out of nowhere" seems to be Beyonce's new go-to move, because she just dropped two new tracks without warning.
"7/11" and "Ring Off" are both included in the deluxe repackaging of her self-titled 2013 album, due out next week. But they've made their way online in advance, either intentionally or otherwise. Snippets of both songs were leaked Wednesday.
"7/11" is a more up-tempo swaggering number, while on "Ring Off," Beyonce delivers more of a smooth mid-tempo ballad.

The two songs are featured on the box set's disc titled More, which also includes four remixes: "Flawless Remix" featuring Nicki Minaj, "Drunk in Love Remix" featuring Jay Z and Kanye West, "Blow Remix" featuring Pharrell Williams and "Standing on the Sun Remix" featuring Mr. Vegas.
