Beyoncé Releases Surprise Album — See Video Announcement!
12:12 am, December 13th, 2013VIDEO
Beyoncé released a surprise album at midnight on Friday.
The self-titled record (see cover art at right) features 14 tracks, plus a whopping 17 videos for a truly “visual album.”
In an announcement posted to Facebook (watch below), the singer explains why she chose to release so many songs and videos simultaneously — and without warning.
Drake (“Mine”), Frank Ocean (“Superpower”), and even daughter Blue Ivy (“Blue”) are among the special guests.
Of course, husband Jay-Z is also featured — on a song called “Drunk in Love,” an apparent sequel to the couple’s hit “Crazy in Love.”
They join a star-filled roster of collaborators that also includes the rest of Destiny’s Child (Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland), Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell.
The videos were filmed across the globe as Beyoncé was on her “Mrs. Carter Show” world tour, with shoots in New York, Paris, Sydney and Rio de Janeiro.
The record marks Beyoncé’s fifth solo studio album, and is available exclusively through iTunes.
The superstar’s last album, 4, was released in 2011.
