Beyonce is accepting news her latest album 4 has leaked online two weeks before its release because of the warm response from fans.
Tracks from the much-anticipated album hit websites on Tuesday (07Jun11), leaving the R&B superstar upset and frustrated.
But she's philosophical about the leak, thanks to the reaction of fans.
In a post on her Facebook.com page, the Irreplaceable singer writes, "My music was leaked and while this is not how I wanted to present my new songs, I appreciate the positive response from my fans.
"When I record music I always think about my fans singing every note and dancing to every beat. I make music to make people happy and I appreciate that everyone has been so anxious to hear my new songs."
