It all started with a tweet.
Admittedly, most things start with a tweet. I'm not entirely sure that World War I didn't start with a tweet. That, or something about that band Franz Ferdinand.
Either way, Beyoncé's frequent collaborator Jordan Asher (BOOTS) tweeted a spoiler about new Beyoncé music and people have lost their minds.

How BOOTS thought he could tweet this and the world would continue rotating on its axis is beyond me.
Boots probably got an angry call from Beyoncé because the tweet was deleted almost immediately.
But what's that saying? It's much easier to squeeze all the toothpaste out of a tube than to put it all back inside. Yeah, this is that.

@bootsonboots what type of game you playing here son?— summeroncé (@stinglikeabey) April 26, 2015
This is already a departure from Beyoncé's self titled, in that, almost no information was leaked prior to the release. At this point, because of this tweet, fans have context.
We can now predict that a Beyoncé album will arrive sometime before the year's end.
