Some quick googling turns up this short film that features Chanel Iman getting an eye exam. Boots wrote the score for the five-minute short.

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.

Like reference tracks for Beyoncé.

"Ghost Around" is a part of the song that Beyoncé sings in the video for "Ghost," "I'm On To You" is the second part of "Haunted," and "Heaven Couldn't Wait" ended up being shortened to "Heaven," the second to last song on the album.

It's almost strange to hear a man sing Beyoncé material because she clearly is superior to anyone with a Y chromosome.

Update: A member of Beyoncé's creative team tweeted a picture of the mysterious man celebrating the album's unexpected release. It was taken tonight in NYC.
