R&B superstar Beyoncé gave her fans an amazing early Christmas present: A previously unannounced, not-a-lick-of-hype-to-herald-it 14-song self-titled album backed with videos for each track.
If this is the gift she gives to complete strangers, imagine what's waiting under the tree for people she knows and loves!
"Beyoncé," her fifth studio album and the first since 2011's "4," includes guest appearances by her husband Jay Z, daughter Blue Ivy and hip-hop stars Frank Ocean and Drake.
In a video posted on Facebook, Beyoncé said: "I see music. It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music.”
"Beyoncé" sells for $15.99 on iTunes.
