New York — Beyoncé did not release new music, though two albums featuring old songs hit streaming services Thursday.

Under the name Queen Carter, the albums Have Your Way and Back Up, Rewind appeared on Spotify and Apple Music, featuring demos, previously released songs and unreleased tracks by Beyoncé.

Hours later, they were removed.

The 10-track Have Your Way included songs like After All Is Said and Done, Beyoncé's duet with Marc Nelson from the Best Man soundtrack, released in 1999; Hollywood, a song with Jay-Z from his 2006 album, Kingdom Come; and Hey Goldmember from the soundtrack for 2002's "Austin Powers in Goldmember."

Back Up, Rewind, featured 11 tracks including Keep Giving Your Love to Me, from the Bad Boys II soundtrack, released in 2003.

The stand-alone song, Control, also appeared on streaming services.

Representatives for Beyoncé, Apple Music and Spotify didn't immediately return emails seeking comment.

Beyoncé's last three albums were released in surprise form: her self-titled album came out in 2013; Lemonade followed in 2016; and Everything is Love, her collaborative album with Jay-Z where the couple is billed as The Carters, was released earlier this year.
