Stop the presses! All y’all news organizations who already printed your Top 10 Lists for 2013 need to go back and print an addendum, stat, because Beyoncé dropped an album out of the blue (Ivy!) overnight. Sure, a few weeks ago we (lightly) admonished King Bey for failing to release an album in 2013, but as of this morning, we BOW DOWN before King Bey and take everything back. Beyoncé’s self-titled Beyoncé is a game-changer not only because it broke every rule in the book about music marketing, but because it arrived complete with VIDEOS FOR EVERY SONG ON THE ALBUM!
VH1 has been deep in Beyoncé world since this album materialized earlier today, analyzing every song lyric and watching (and re-watching) every single video over and over again for clues into the life of Mrs. Carter and the rest of her famous family, hubby Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy Carter. So, as you get through your work day and prepare to watch/listen to the whole Beyoncé album tonight, we’ve got your back. Take a gander at The Essential Guide To Beyoncé’s Surprise Album, which includes screencaps of the most iconic images, sexiest GIFs, and insightful/hilarious analysis of all fourteen tracks on the album. ENJOY!
