Beyhive Buzzing About Beyoncé’s Upcoming Album, Which May Feature Parents of Trayvon Martin, Other Police Brutality Victims

Beyonce-The-Formation-tour-Beyoncé fans — the Beyhive — have begun speculating about the release of the artist’s next album after 13 mysterious unlisted videos were added to her Vevo site.

The Beyhive said the singer has recruited the help of the parents of Trayvon Martin — a Florida teen killed in 2012 by George Zimmerman — and other parents who have lost children to police brutality, for a new video for the upcoming album.

The singer, dancer and entertainer wowed fans with the surprise release of her single “Formation” last month, leaving spectators wondering what will happen next. According to Digital Trends, Beyoncé’s Vevo site originally had 117 listed videos, but this week that number increased after 13 unlisted videos popped up mysteriously.

Beyoncé’s fans believe the singer’s latest album will hit store shelves and digital weeks  — or days — before her Formation World Tour gets underway. Atlanta Black Star reported that the U.S. tour starts in Miami on April 27. Tour dates are below:

April 27: Miami, Florida — Marlins Park

April 29: Tampa, Florida — Raymond James Stadium

In a March 20 tweet, the fan Twitter page, The BeyHIVE Team, said the artist’s sixth album and a short film that will accompany the album are complete:

The album’s release is a mystery at this point. Multiple media outs have reported that the next album will be released in a similar fashion to her 2013 album, Beyoncé. That album had no press, no promotion, and it dropped as a surprise for fans December 13, 2013. The album skyrocketed to the top of the charts even though no one knew it was coming.

While “Formation” has inspired and made fans antsy with anticipation, the song, video, and Super Bowl 50 halftime performance has attracted its fair share of critics. Conservative news pundits have come out against the song, claiming that the single portrays police in a negative light. Police unions around the nation have been conflicted about protecting the pop star. She has also been subjected to a tug-of-war of political ideologies between opposing figures in the former Black Panther Party.

As of now, there is only speculation.
