With Bey's upcoming album, 4, making its rounds on the Net, one of the most influential singers of the 2000s addressed the issue via her Facebook page.
"My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans. When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs."
The album is currently scheduled for a June. 28 release date.
