We were starting to get pretty T.O.’ed that after an epic media blitz–performing at the Superbowl, going on a world tour, racking up the year’s most flawless magazine covers–we hadn’t really heard any new music from Beyoncé. In fact, we were more than T.O.’d. We were getting to be feel pretty betrayed.
Oh, we of little faith.
We should have known King Bey would never keep us hanging like that. The singer righted this glaring wrong at 12:01AM this morning, when, like a thief in the night, she dropped her fifth studio album, aptly titled, “BEYONCE.” Indeed, we were rewarded for our patience with not only 14 new songs, (which we will be playing nonstop this weekend…we apologize to our neighbors in advance) but 17 full-length music videos to go with it. Praise Beysus!
Plus, there are appearances from hubby Jay Z, Frank Ocean, and even little Blue Ivy Carter, who actually sings on one track! Too adorable. If you haven’t already, (what are you waiting for?) you can download the entire thing on iTunes.
Haven’t gotten your fill of Beyoncé fodder? Peep her 2014 calendar, cop her $48 tiger muscle tee, and watch her gracefully endure getting her hair caught in a fan.
