Update: The songs have leaked in full. Listen, below:
Like Christmas come early, we've gotten our first taste of the new material from Beyoncé's forthcoming boxed set. There's only one way to describe it: Damn. In a leaked snipped of "711", Bey brings the fierce with bass-heavy instrumentals and bragging rights lyrics la "Flawless." But the snippet that inevitably has everyone buzzing is the sensationally titled, "Ring Off," which is about cheating. She sings: I wish it didn't hurt at all / don't know how I got here / I was once the one who had his heart / until you had enough / then you took that ring off. While the subject matter, especially when seen through a Bey and Jay lens, is a hard pill to swallow, the track has a decidedly sanguine melody — perhaps because the worst is over? Hopefully we'll know more when the full songs drops.
