Call this the Christmas gift from the artist. Last night, Beyonce surprised her fans by secretly dropping a new album on iTunes. The self titled album is Beyonce’s 5th solo album and features 31 tracks, 14 of which are new songs.
In the new album, Beyonce collaborated with Jay Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland….Wow, we are loving this already
Surprisingly, the album featured Nigerian author ,Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on a track titled Flawless. Beyonce put a portion of the award winning author’s speech about feminism and roles women play in the society in the song.Linda Ikeji calls this Pop meets Literature! Amazing stuff.
Meanwhile Beyonce has filmed 17 new music videos, one of which she released on Facebook last night. You have to be really big to release an album without any promos or prior warning to fans.
