So Beyoncé dropped a new album last night. And in case you didn't know, she pretty much changed the game.
King Bey unveiled her fifth release (self-titled so you know it's real) with no warning, even though she's basically been dropping hints and promoting all year. Besides the Mrs. Carter tour, Mama Blue Ivy has been stuntin' on social media, yachting, shooting secret videos ..and now this?
We'd like to think Bey's been reading our stories all year, but that's probably not the case. A move like this takes the kind of extreme and strategic planning that we may never really need to understand.
That being said, if you're a loyal member of the Bey Hive --or a person who enjoys her work in general --chances are this Beyoncé album had you stuck for a little bit . We feel you.
