In a statement Beyonce says "I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it, I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There's so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans."

There are collaborations with Frank Ocean, Drake, and Jay-Z. Co- writers of other songs are Justin Timberlake, Miguel, Pharell, Sia, Ryan Tedder.
