Beyonce‘s reps are refusing to comment on the authenticity of the leaked album track list that surfaced earlier last week but Ne-Yo did. The tunesmith may have secured two songs on the top secret project. In a recent interview, he said he was happy to be ...featured on the album but wasn't sure if the handwritten document was legit.
“I saw that Beyonce’s track listing just leaked and I’ve got a couple of joints on there, which is good news. I’m very happy about that,” he said. “I don’t know, I mean you never really can tell until the album comes out.”
Ne-Yo’s past collaborations with Beyonce have yielded several chart-topping hits including ‘Irreplaceable.’ He wouldn’t divulge what musical direction Queen Bey was going in on her fifth album, tentatively titled ‘Mrs. Carter,’ but he’s thankful that nothing else has leaked.
“The last thing you want to do is write a song that makes no sense with the direction of the album, so she let me hear some stuff so I knew where to aim,” he said. “I’m actually happy that no songs have leaked from it yet. Hopefully this is a sign for the future — that music can come out when it’s actually supposed to come out.” The rumored track list boasts an all-star lineup of guest features including Lady Gaga and Azealia Banks, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Sia, her hubby, Jay-Z and sister, Solange.
