Follow the dates to find out:

JANUARY 10 The Feburary 2013 GQ cover story announces that Beyonce’s album could come out as early as April. She says the album will be mostly R&B. “I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There’s a bit of D’Angelo, some ’60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross,” she commented.

FEBRUARY 11 The singer hints that the new album will be “a lot more sensual” and “empowering.” So, she’s still a fierce, independent woman, but she’s crazy in love and bootylicious?

MARCH 10 A fake track list for Bey’s new album surfaces online. Knowing what we know now, there’s probably no chance that “Ratchet” (feat. Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks) ” and “More Than Sex” (feat. Ne-Yo) are real songs, seeing that all the singles she has released or previewed were not on the list.

MARCH 17 Beyonce releases “Bow Down/I Been On” on her website. “I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife,” she sings, adding that that bitch should bow to Queen Bey.

MARCH 19 MediaTakeOut reports that Beyonce’s new album will come out in Fall 2013 now because the two songs that were released – “Nuclear” and “Bow Down” – were not doing so well. “No one thought that both records would fall flat. They were supposed to be her biggest two songs off the album,” a source told the website.

MARCH 28 Rolling Stone reports the new album is called “Mrs. Carter” (but reports on later dates say the album is yet-to-be titled.

APRIL 3 Producer The-Dream says Bey has a “very sexual” track called “IV Play.” “She’s talking about her man, hopefully,” he said about the song during the radio program “The Angie Martinez Show”. “She was talking that talk. That’s one of the best performances I’ve heard from her in that way.”

APRIL 4 The new single “Grown Woman” is released in a minute-long Pepsi advertisement. The video features Beyonce in a room full of mirrors, each which show a reflection of one of her old looks.

APRIL 8 MTV says in a story about Kelly Rowland that her colleague Beyonce will release an album within EIGHT months.

APRIL 23 Don’t fret: Gwyneth Paltrow said Beyonce’s album will be out soon. She told Digital Spy that she’s heard a “lot, lot, lot” of the songs, but she doesn’t know which ones will be left on the cutting floor.

APRIL 23 Beyonce performs “Grown Woman” in Paris, but the unnamed album and the track still have no release date.

APRIL 25 Beyonce debuts a 90-second clip of a new song called “Standing on the Sun” for her H&M ad campaign.

MAY 1 A publicist tells Metro that a Saturday Beyonce press conference in London — scheduled to promote her role in the animated film “Epic,” — has been cancelled, along with a press screening of the film. Perhaps this means she’s finally finishing that album?
