While Queen Bey is on her world tour, fans are getting antsy waiting for the artist to reveal details on her new album.

Rumors have been circulating surrounding the record’s delayed release. Philadelphia producer Diplo first sparked concern when he tweeted that two of the songs he was working on for the project had been completed scrapped. It’s also been said that she auditioned over 50 songs for it and decided to cut them all, a source told The Hollywood Reporter. Ne-Yo, who has also worked on the album, has reportedly said she’s “still trying to figure [it] out.”

Despite all of this, a rep says that she’s still working on the record and that no official release date was ever announced. Beyonce has put out new music in recent ad campaigns for H&M and Pepsi, but has yet to title any of those as official singles.

Beyoncé’s label, Sony-owned Columbia records, is getting anxious following her 2011 album–which was the lowest selling at 1.4 millionm­–having spent a ton of money to make the record while she was traveling with husband Jay Z during his ‘Watch the Throne’ days.

Beyoncé brings her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour to the Wells Fargo Center Thursday, July 25. Tickets are still available.
