Out of nowhere, R&B/Pop singer Beyoncé surprises her fans with BEYONCÉ, a self-titled album which features videos for each track. There was no promotion for Beyonce’s fifth solo album, although teasers to videos were “leaked” online days before the release.

BEYONCÉ, exclusively released on iTunes right before 12 midnight (December 13th), contains 14 audio tracks and 17 visuals with producing credits from Detail, Timbaland, HitBoy, Pharrell and more. Her husband, Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy are featured on the album, along with Drake, Frank Ocean and Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. All videos that accompany each track on the album were filmed during Beyonce’s “The Mrs. Carter World Tour” in various locations throughout the world like Sydney, Paris and New York – to name a few.  

UPDATE: The first week sales projections are in, Beyoncé is set to sell at least 200k during the first week after selling 80k just in 24 hours. Wow.

UPDATE 2: Beyoncé makes iTunes history by becoming the fastest selling artist. The total amount of albums sold digitally has totaled to 828,773. Via Apple.
