Beyonce Releases Secret Album and Crashes Itunes

Beyonce surprises her fans in a big way and is showing the world what it's like to think outside the  musical box .
The super star has released an un-promoted self titled visual album

It's called "Beyonce" and is exclusively on Itunes right now.
The album features 14 songs and a video to go with each one of them.
There are also 3-bonus music videos. Those videos were primarily shot during her mrs. Carter show world tour. Though filmed in open places - the entire project was kept a secret. "II didn't want anybody to give the message when my records coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans. I told my team I wanted to put a video out for every song and everyone thought I was crazy." says Beyonce.

No promtion didn't hurt album sales. After the pop star made the announcment on Facebook, Itunes crashed because of the high traffic!
Beyonce says she remembers when Michael Kacksons "Thriller" came out on TV and her entire family gathered around to watch. She says she misses music being an immersive experience and wanted to make it an event again."I wanted to make this a body of work. I feel like it's something that is lost in pop music. I wanted people to hear things differnetly and have a differnet fist impression. Not listen to a ten second clip" she says.

The album has some big collaborations. Her husband Jay Z is on the album, so is Drake, Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and  more. But probably the biggest star, at least to Queen B, os her daughter Blue Ivy.
She is featured in the song and video "Blue". 

This is the super stars fifth studio album. Right now you have to buy the entire album  - you can't just pick an individual song.  But next week you will be able to buy individual tracks and then in time for the holiday, you will be able to buy a double disk cd/dvd at retail stores.
