Beyoncé has penned a letter to her fans to talk about her new album, due out November 18th. While the LP is shrouded in mystery — we only know that Justin Timberlake will appear and two of the singles are called "If I Were a Boy" and "Single Ladies" — Mrs. Jay-Z tells fans, "My music will explain it all. I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby."
Beyoncé admits she spent more time working on this album than any other in her career. "I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now, and I wanted people to see the many sides of me," she adds. "The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side, and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here." The aforementioned singles will hit radio October 7th.
