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?

Kelly Rowland is reportedly off the market after marrying her long-term boyfriend Tim Witherspoon in a secret wedding.
According to MediaTakeOut.com, the former Destiny’s Child singer tied the knot with Witherspoon, who is also her manager, in February. They had dated on and off for four years.
Rather than the traditional rings, the couple are said to have got matching tattoos on their wedding fingers to represent the union.
“Kelly and Tim have been together for years, and decided to get married,” a source told the site. “Kelly wants to keep her sexy singer image alive, so she’s keeping everything a secret. Most people didn’t even know she had a boyfriend.”
Rowland, who recently joined the X Factor US judging panel, has been romantically linked to Jamie Foxx and Pusha T.
Earlier this year, the 32-year-old star revealed in her emotional track Dirty Laundry that she had been in an abusive relationship.
“A piece of me would just go away every time he would say something,” she said of the relationship.
“I’ll never forget those things. I’ll forgive him … he’s a different person now but it was things to tear me down as a person, as a woman.
“I was just so young and allowed him to do those things to me.”
