King Bey decided to gift the world with a surprise fifth studio album.
It was made with the help of a crack team of songwriters and producers, including big names Pharrell, The Dream, and Timbaland.
But someone who goes by the name of "Boots" is all over the album credits.
It made some people on Twitter start asking some questions.
Here's what's known: He signed to Jay Z's record label Roc Nation some time around June 1, when he posted this picture to his Facebook.
Roc Nation's website is unhelpful.
A month after making his deal public, he posted to Facebook again, this time with a song called "Haunted."
His voice is pretty haunting and awesome.
