The singing superstar’s platinum edition box set of her self-titled album is supposed to drop next week, but one of the new singles already leaked yesterday, and now fans can enjoy yet another early listen to another one of the featured tracks.
Although it’s only a 15-second teaser, it’s still enough audio to conclude that: A) We love it; B) We can’t wait for this platinum edition box set; and C) Those Bey and Jay Z marriage trouble rumors are going to be reignited.
Why would we say such a thing? Well, first of all, the track is called “Ring Off,” and judging by the lyrics that are available on the wonderful worldwide web, the track is about giving up on a relationship.
“In the mirror you would stare/And say a prayer like, ‘I wish he said I’m beautiful’/ I wish it didn’t hurt at all/I don’t know how I got here, I was once the one who had his heart,” the lyrics read. “Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that finger.”
However, art doesn’t always imitate life, so let’s keep that in mind.
Earlier this month, Bey’s camp announced that the limited edition set would include two new songs, “7/11” and “Ring Off,” plus four new and unreleased remixes of her with some collaborators like Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Pharrell Williams.
