So what does Beyonce do when the entire world is on the edge of it’s seat in anticipation for her new studio album?
She drops it without any promotion, marketing, or an official announced release date… on Friday the 13th, 2013, on iTunes like it’s nothing.
Oh, and did I mention Beyonce made a music for all of the 14 tracks on the album, with an additional 3 available on iTunes once you purchase it ( that makes 17 total)?
Looks like King Bey is trying to end the year with a bang! After making fans wait an extremely long time for her fifth studio album, with no word on the direction or a release date, Beyonce finally released her 14 track album Beyonce; complete with music videos for each song.
Already there’s word that the album has sold over 80,000 copies in three hours since it’s release.
If you haven’t checked out the video previews for the songs yet. check them out below and try to figure out which track you’re feeling the most!
(I can’t decide yet; 30 seconds of song and visuals aren’t enough for me to make a good judgement)
