For months, artists have been firing off new records in hopes of landing the track that will become the 2022 Summer Anthem. From emcees delivering bars about the streets to rappers dropping off twerk-ready jams, we’ve seen an influx in artists sharing new singles, patiently waiting to climb the charts or go viral with a dance craze. There are several albums that music fans have been looking forward to, but after Beyoncé recently deleted her profile photo on Instagram, the rumor mill, or should we say BeyHive, began buzzing.Throughout her career, the Destiny’s Child icon has swum against the tide and chosen to make moves that defy industry standards. She perfected the art of the surprise album and rarely sits down for an interview, but when it comes to her rollout season, it’s unlike any other.
