We know that new Beyoncé music is coming out shortly, but the new material isn't exactly what we first thought it would be.

Acording to Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, general manager of Beyonce's Parkwood Entertainment, the leaked track list from last week—showing collaborations with Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake and more—was entirely fake. Cue the tears.

"It's completely made up," Callahan-Longo admitted. "After all the hubbub this weekend, we kind of said, 'Well, let's just put it out and say what it is.' It's funny, I got a bunch of calls over the weekend and I would say, 'It's exciting to know people are excited.' Even if they're reporting it wrong, and that people would take their time to go and create a fake one-sheet—right down to using a Columbia logo on it."



Callahan-Longo also explained that she would be interested in finding out who the zealous fan was who put all the time and effort into creating the mock-up, saying "I would love to know who did it. They clearly knew what a line sheet used to look like—they don't look like that anymore."

The music exec revealed that the Queen Bey most likely won't be dropping entire albums out of thin air anymore—because been there, done that.

"You can only be first once, so I'm not sure we'd want to do it again. We typically at Parkwood like to look at projects where, if it isn't unique or different in some way, it's really not interesting to us."

And while the star-filled follow-up album to Beyoncé won't be hitting the shelves any time soon, it was announced earlier this week that a platinum version of her 2013 self-titled album will be dropped later this month and is slated to include two new songs.
