Two Beyonce projects were reportedly leaked overnight on Apple Music and Spotify before being removed.

The Lemonade artist has a history with surprise albums, although these latest works appear to be unauthorised leaks.

One 10-track project, titled Have Your Way, apparently dropped on Apple Music and Spotify late on Thursday 20 December, under the artist name Queen Carter.

A second album, also 10 tracks, was called Back Up, Rewind, according to ET.

Both appeared to consist of older recorded songs and previously unreleased music, featuring track names like “Black Culture”, “Keep Giving Your Love to Me” and “After All is Said and Done”. By midnight, all the tracks had been removed from streaming services, Billboard reports.

Beyonce is the second artist to suffer an album leak this week, after an album titled Comethru appeared on Spotify under the name Sister Solana. It featured nine unreleased SZA tracks, with the artist responding: “These are random scratches from 2015. Def not new new!” she wrote against a screenshot of the album art. “But...creative? And Scary?”

Beyonce and her representatives have not yet addressed the apparent leaks.
