When Beyonce joined Coldplay for their Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show and announced a world tour the same day, you kinda/sorta figured a new Beyonce album might be coming this year.
Well, now we have confirmation of sorts via Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. On the Monday (Feb. 8) night episode, Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter — whose outfit left no question as to why he’s Beyonce’s stylist – admitted there’s a new Beyonce album… and he’s heard it.

Host Andy Cohen grilled him on whether he’d heard a new Beyonce album, to which he responded, “I’ve heard the new album and it’s beyond awesome.”
2016 will be a good year.
