Christmas came early for Beyonce fans...the singer surprised everyone by dropping a brand new album while in the middle of her Mrs. Carter world tour!
Jay-Z's wife announced her surprise album with a video she posted on her Instagram overnight. The "visual album", which is simply titled Beyonce, features 14 new songs and 17 complementary videos. Drake, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell are just a few bold-faced named who appear on tracks.
The 32-year old singer decided to release her fifth album straight to iTunes, which reportedly crashed temporarily as fans tried to buy B's new album. "I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it," she said in a press release. "I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans."
Her fellow celebs are already giving the singer props on her secret surprise album.
"Don't talk to me today unless it's about @Beyonce THANX," Katy Perry Tweeted early this morning when the news broke.
"My girl @Beyonce just changed the game," Snoop Dogg Tweeted.
We couldn't agree more!
