Beyonce Drops Her New Album Without ANY Warning

For years now, everyone has been referring to Beyonce as "Queen B."
She's had a solid, amazing, ground breaking career, so she arguably deserves the title.
I'm pretty sure she blew many nay-sayers minds on the 13th, when she dropped her "visual album"without any marketing or promotion on iTunes. 
She's already sold over 430,000 copies within 24 hours, according to Time Magazine's website. That debut surpasses Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga's album sales in their first week alone. 

Not only did she do the unthinkable (not marketing her album, and releasing it when she felt like it), but she also has music videos for every song. Music videos that were made while she was on tour. 

Who does that? A queen, apparently. 

This release is a music industry game-changer. Does not marketing an album create a bigger buzz and better sales? Or was this a lucky chance Beyonce took? Time will tell, when artists follow in her footsteps.

Other solo female recording artists have taken their time, it seems, releasing videos for their singles. With technology changing constantly, videos are imperative for singles to do well. Beyonce upped the standards on this one, but it's unlikely that everyone else in the music industry is Wonder Woman. 

But the question is: what do YOU think of the ACTUAL visual album; the videos & the music? Did you buy it?
