Beyoncé releases surprise new album featuring Jay-Z, Drake, Frank Ocean and Blue Ivy

Beyonce Knowles

Beyoncé has announced and released an album on the same day.

The queen’s fifth LP entitled “Beyoncé” was released exclusively on iTunes early Friday and features tracks with Jay-Z, Drake, Frank Ocean and her daughter Blue Ivy.

Every song on the album also comes with its own music video.  The project comes amid rumors that Bey wouldn’t let 2013 go without a new album. Whispers turned into a reality that played out on Twitter, where fans excitedly shared the news, mostly in all-caps messages that included the letters “OMG.”

Beyoncé says in a statement that she “didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it.” She says she wanted the album to come out when it was ready, from her to her fans.

How she was able to keep this a secret and avoid songs being leaked is beyond our belief, but she’s the Queen, so what do you expect?
