Lady GaGa's new album wasn't expected to arrive until Friday. However, #LG5 came early for Belgium's Little Monsters!
It appears that on Monday, Joanne hit shelves early in the European country, and fans flocked to Twitter to post picture proof that the record was, in fact, available for purchase!

One Brussels fan documented her journey to a Media Markt store where the album was supposedly being sold early, only to discover that the highly-anticipated release was actually on the shelves!
Ch-ch-check it out (below):
Other fans also uploaded image evidence of Joanne's early release (below):
But, in the wake of the early sale, it appears the album has leaked online (not necessarily by a Belgian fan)!
Shady Music Facts reported Joanne was downloaded over 300,000 times in the first 20 minutes alone!
We wonder if this is going to affect GaGa's album sales when Joanne REALLY drops on Friday…
On the plus side, if it DOES get beaten by Michael Buble, at least she'll have a reason.
