Beyonce Surprise

While You Were Sleeping ...

I Dropped A New Album!

Beyonce just pulled off a HUMONGOUS feat ...  surprising fans by dropping an entire album in the middle of the night on iTunes ... and doing it in almost total secrecy.

Not just a single song, mind you ... a full album -- called "Beyonce" -- with 14 new songs and 17 music videos.

There are a ton of stars featured on the tracks -- Jay Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams, The Dream, Miguel ... and a bunch of others ... even her baby, Blue Ivy gets a credit.

Right now, the album's only on iTunes ... Queen B said she did that for a reason, saying "I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that."

She also released a music video for every new song -- and somehow, one of our TMZ photogs got into one of the shots (see video below) ... PHOTOBOMB!!

"...and a bunch of others" media manufactured, overly produced nothings. The media manipulators has managed to feed Gen Zero a diet of mediocrity. They gave up on the baby boomers yuppies after that stupid "New Age" crap ran its course.

If those on here hate Beyonce so much, then why waste time in your day to bitch about her so much? All you're doing is giving her more and more publicity.

I remember years ago she said that she wanted longevity. But a lot of the music hat she's been making lately is just not good. A Beyonce 'best of' compilation album would be great, but there's too much junk in between and her track record will be muddled. Every song should be hit material. She's lost focus.

She really should be a better artist than this with all that money and supposed longevity. There's a place for Beyonce it's just not where she thinks. At the end of the day her talent is very high school pageant and her message seems to be going of the sexual desperation route.
