Beyonce Drops New Album on the Same Day It was Announced

AP beyonce jef 131031 16x9 608 Beyonce Surprises Fans With New Album on iTunes
The singer released "Beyonce" exclusively on iTunes early Friday, mimicing her hubby's
 "Magna Carta Holy Grail" earlier this year iIn a deal with Samsung where he gave the album to 1 million users of Galaxy mobile phones days before its official release.

Beyonce's fifth musical venture features 14 songs and 17 videos.

Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean make guest appearances on the album, while the closing track, "Blue," features her daughter Blue Ivy.  Justin Timberlake co-wrote the songs "Rocket" and "Partition," and Pharrell, Timbaland, Ryan Tedder, Miguel and Sia also co-wrote tracks. The song "(asterisk)(asterisk)(asterisk)Flawless" — which incorporates part of "Bow Down/I Been On," a song Beyonce posted earlier this year — uses audio from a speech about feminism by Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Twitter said Beyonce's album release generated over 1.2 million tweets in 12 hours, with a tweets-per-minute spike of 5,300. The tweets-per-minute count around the album surpassed the record set when the Syfy TV movie "Sharknado" aired in July, Twitter added.

"I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it," she said in a statement. "I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There's so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans."

Congrats to you Bey - I'm sure this will be another success!
