Beyonce’ shocked the world at midnight on Friday the 13th, when she dropped her un-announced album complete with music videos for every song (Scroll Down To watch The Clips). This has never been done….ever! No promotion, no record company, no announcement, just…here is my new music. Unfortunately, if you don’t own any apple products ie. i phone, macs etc. you have to wait with the rest of the world until December 21st, when the album drops in retail stores. But, for now you can purchase the album, complete with 13 new music videos, at iTunes.com!
There seems to be a large population of Beyonce’ fans that went to iTunes, because within hours of her surprise midnight release, Queen Bey had already sold over 200,000 copies in the United States alone!! Within one day her album went #1 in over 80 countries, knocking Garth Brooks out of the #1 spot! Keep in mind this is with absolutely NO promotion. No one can say that she is not the #1 pop star in the world!
Her album is not only incredible, but it is the most mature we have ever heard her. Her incredibly sexy songs like Drunk In Love, Partition, Blow and Rocket will be on everyone’s baby making mix tapes! Drunk In Love is a sexy R&B groove with her husband Jay-Z..love it! Bey also is not shy about flaunting her post baby body. In Partition and Rocket, she highlights her perfect behind. Can’t hate on that Nicki Minaj…her natural behind is much sexier than anything fake!!
The most heartfelt songs include Heaven and Pretty Hurts (my favorite) which brings light to the fact that society’s perception of what’s pretty is terribly flawed and it’s all about ‘learning to love yourself,’ (my favorite line!!) She starts her album with this song and uses the very beauty pageants that she used to compete in to show how ridiculous and unhealthy the trend to be perfect can be.
The other thing that is prevalent throughout the album is Bey reaching back to her Southern roots and getting a little hood. Loves it!! In ‘No Angel,’ she showcases several down south rappers including Slim Thug, Bun B, Trick Daddy and more. She shot the video in her hometown and features several local folks.
But my Fav has to be ‘Flawless/Bow Down.’ I’ve been walking around the house all day saying’ I woke up like dis!” I guarantee this will be the new saying for 2014!!
Of Course the sweetest song is the one about her daughter Blue Ivy, who is also featured in the video and on the song. You have to wait until the end of the video to get a glimpse of the cutie though!
The album was produced by Beyonce, Jay Z, Timbaland, Pharell, Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and The Dream…but no Ne-Yo. I guess he was left out of this one. Overall…I give it an A+!
