The self-titled, BEYONCÉ, is the fifth solo studio album from Beyoncé, which was made available exclusively worldwide on the iTunes Store on December 13 by Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records. The self-titled set is the artist’s first visual album. BEYONCÉ is infused with 14 new songs and 17 visually stunning, provocative videos shot around the world from Houston to New York City to Paris, and Sydney to Rio de Janeiro, all before the album’s release. The album represents Beyoncé’s biggest sales week ever.
You have to give credit when credit is due!
Queen B had everyone in a stir Thursday night, and walking into work with red eyes on Friday after staying up all night to watch her visual album (including myself). I don’t even flinch at the price of the album being the most I have ever spent on an iTune download. After deleting a few apps and waiting a couple of hours for my phone to retrieve the album, while in the mist of the iTune shutdown, I was in “B”Land!
She made her own lane, and in the process made history!
