Just like that, huh Beyoncé?!
While many artists usually spend months promoting
their upcoming releases in hopes that album sales
skyrocket, Queen B decided to go against the grain
and just drop her fifth studio album exclusively on
iTunes without anyone having the slightest idea that
it was coming.
The self-titled album features a whopping 31 tracks,
14 of which are new songs, including collaborations
with big name artists like hubby Jay Z, gal-pals
Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Drake,
Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams, Justin
Timberlake and her baby girl Blue Ivy—just to
name a few.

As for the other 17 tracks…In an effort to make this
event an even more OMG-worthy moment, Bey
decided to also release 17 videos. Boom.
The surprise release is described as an “unguarded
artistic statement,” and labeled as “a visual album”
that is “exclusively available on iTunes…The
complementary videos unfold amid an international
backdrop of New York, Paris, Sydney and Rio de
Janeiro.”
Bey posted a video on Instagram with snippets of
what we can assume are pieces of the videos, and
also released a video on Facebook.
“I see music as more than just what I hear,” she says
in the clip. “When I’m connected to something, I
immediately see a visual or a series of images that
are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from
my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my
fantasies and they’re all connected to the music. And
I think that’s one of the reasons why I wanted to do a
visual album.”
Now would be the perfect time to bow down.
