Beyoncé Releases Self-Titled Album on iTunes

Posted by: Drew Beringer (12/12/13)
So, uh, Beyoncé just dropped her fifth studio album, a self-titled effort, with no fanfare or buzz on iTunes. Not only does Beyoncé contain fourteen new songs but each song has a video accompaniment. Bow down to the Queen.

Damn, this is a really interesting way to release and album. This is super well done.. not only are there videos, but they're all very well done. Can only imagine the money that was put into this. Would absolutely love if more artists would do something even remotely similar. Also, excellent choice by for clicking the preview link to the video for "Partition".

HUGE. im not even a big fan, but for an artist as enormous as she is to just up and drop this... with zero leaks? it's incredible. last time something like this happened it was Radiohead's "In Rainbows" and that had what, a 10 day lead time?

Woaaah I didn't even hear rumors of this happening. I guess I must stop calling her a flop now for wasting all that Super Bowl/Pepsi hype at the beginning of the year. I don't even listen to her much and I think that's awesome. I hope she saw how much of a disappointing flop all of the big pop girls were this year and decided to come out of nowhere and slay them all.

Will be interesting to see how profitable the record is with such a small marketing budget. . . though I'd imagine making videos for each song would be very costly.
