Beyonce surprised everyone last night when she released her new self-titled album at the stroke of midnight. In fact, we’re still trying to process all of this: a “visual album” that contains 14 tracks and 17 videos. WHAT. THE. WHAT.
Anyway, here’s what happened:
This year, we were faced with very little Beyonce news, and surely, this was what she was thinking to herself:
And one by one, her fellow pop stars were releasing new albums and Beyonce thought to herself, “NUH UH.”
So when we were all finishing off our year-end lists, Beyonce suddenly made her surprise entrance back into the game.
AND SHATTERED THE INTERNET.
The second we heard about it, our jaws dropped.
And then we went into panic mode.
This was us while we were downloading the album off of iTunes. (HURRY UP!!!!!!)
IT FINISHED DOWNLOADING. 14 TRACKS, 17 VIDEOS. SO. MUCH. BEYONCE.
As the internet exploded with joy, you just know that this was Beyonce’s reaction to it all:
Even though we’re still on our first listens of the brand new album — which features guest appearances from Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean!!! — we can tell you that this has been our reaction all day:
Oh, and the “competition”? Yeah, eff that.
MERRY BEYONCEMAS, EVERYBODY (NOW DOWNLOAD BEYONCE’S NEW ALBUM ON ITUNES)
