Beyoncé’s Renaissance album has apparently leaked, just two days before its release.

According to Variety, “high-quality FLAC [Free Lossless Audio Codec] files that certainly sound like the album” were found online Wednesday. There were also social media posts that showed physical copies of the album for sale, apparently in European stores.

Beyoncé first revealed a new album was on the way last month. She has since followed up a reveal of the album’s cover art, track list, and collaborators, which include Drake, Nigerian singer Tems and producer Pharrell Williams.

Renaissance, which is the “Break My Soul” singer’s seventh studio album, is set to officially drop Friday. This will be Beyoncé’s first conventional solo album since 2016’s Lemonade.
