Watch & Listen to the New “Beyonce” Album (Previews of Every Video)
In all my years working in music I can't say I've ever seen anything even remotely like this. Without absolutely no warning or pre-releasing marketing, the biggest female star in the world, Beyonce, drops her self-titled fifth studio album exclusively via iTunes on a Thursday night. #newrules indeed.
In addition to the sudden release, the album is uniquely formatted, containing fifteen songs as well as fifteen matching videos shot in locations throughout the world, from Rio to Paris and everywhere in between. Production comes from a wide-range of heavy hitters including Pharrell and Timbaland, and features guest appearances from Drake, Jay Z, Frank Ocean, her daughter Blue Ivy (who I hear spits hot fire) and many more.
Well holy sweet baby jesus then, I guess there's nothing else for us to do but get to listening and watching. We've compiled previews of every video, which we'll update with full versions as soon as they're available. Those feeling properly motivated can also buy "Beyonce" right now on iTunes.
Enjoy, and let's get to discussing in the comments below. Player is below the tracklist, this is music history...
