Last night (December 12) Beyonce silenced all people who kept asking where new material is. She dropped a [silent] internet bomb in the wee hours of Friday the 13th by making her fifth studio album available on iTunes.
For those of you who will snag the album as you read this (Read: everyone), know that you’ll be getting 14 songs and 17 videos. Naturally, her hubby Jay Z is an album feature (along with their child baby Blue Ivy), but other major features include Drake, Frank Ocean and Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche.
The self titled, visual album BEYONCE received virtually no promotion. Meaning no single, no ads, no artwork release, no date release. Looks like #NewRules run in the family. Head over to iTunes to get your life and preview snippets of the album.
UPDATE: She released a video called “Self-Titled” about the intentional, no-single nature of her latest body of work. Watch it here.
