These days, celebrities can’t sneeze without someone being aware of it and rushing to the Internet to tell everyone they know. No new album comes out without heavy promotion, music videos, radio appearances, and so on. However, it seems like one person’s still capable of keeping a secret, probably because she’s so image-conscious. Beyonce Knowles, one of the biggest stars in the music industry, has somehow managed to keep a huge secret from the world. Beyonce has quietly released a 14-track “visual album” of songs and corresponding music videos on iTunes.
When you add in the three extra songs/videos that are included with the purchase of Beyonce’s self-titled album, that’s 17 songs. More than that, she’s found time to film 17 music videos, and NO ONE KNEW ABOUT THIS THE ENTIRE TIME. That’s borderline amazing these days. But the album isn’t just the Beyonce show, even if it’s just called Beyonce. Among the special guests on the album are Frank Ocean, Drake, her husband Jay Z, and of course, baby Blue Ivy, so it’s not as if she recorded it in a vacuum and no one else was involved. This is a legitimate album, apparently, and it’s a completely random surprise. .
