Beyoncé Drops Self-Titled, Surprise 14-Track "Visual Album" (VIDEO)
Lately, it seems like the only news we hear about pop megastar vocalist and international muse, Beyoncé Knowles, is that which screams a bloodthirsty cry of "Domesticity!"
Is Queen B. pregnant? Where did she and Jay-Z travel last? And what was she wearing when they went there? She even named her last tour, Mrs. Carter! Where in the world is Sasha Fierce?
Like the big reveal in an M. Night Shaymalan movie, B. came out of left-field early this morning to announce the release of a 14 track self-titled visual album. Check the jump for more details and the album's trailer.

Historically, a major release - especially one this experimental and format challenging - is preceded by an onslaught of press and hype.
But when you're friggin' Beyoncé, all you gotta do is log into Instagram and say, "Surprise!"
That's exactly what the diva did around midnight when she dropped the trailer for Beyoncé (see above) her new 14 track album available on iTunes and accompanied by a simultaneously-released music video for every song, hence the "visual album" tag.
Hey, it's Friday and we just got a new record (and uh a feature-length movie's worth of footage) from Beyoncé. What else is there to do besides fall to our knees and proclaim, "Thank you Queen B.! May we have another?"
