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!!

Well, since I've never heard ANY of your songs, I really don't give a sh*t.

That sounds about right... It only takes one night to produce that kind of music.

"I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that." Umm...you released every other album on iTunes. I'm failing to see how this is different. And, quite frankly, I'm bored of you, girl. You have the personality of wet paper.

Can you call taped karaoke an album? It was released in the middle of the night because it only took a couple of hours last night to produce this abomination. Please go away Beyonce, the world will rejoice and become a much more audibly pleasing planet. 8==D
