Here is an actual e-mail I sent to my family. My love for Beyonce is so real that I needed to inform them.
As you may or may not know (if you’ve listened to the radio, saw the news, or glanced at my FB feed this morning)… Beyonce released an album this morning [should be “last night”- oops]. Excuse me!?
What’s awesome about it is that no one knew it was coming- she never released a single, and there was no official promo for it. She just released it on iTunes with no fanfare. She’s calling it a “visual album”, because when you download it, you get all 14 songs, AND you get all of the music videos for them! That’s right- she managed to film all of the music videos with such high production value… and no one ever knew! And it’s already #1, selling 80K in the first 3 hours. Crazy! Anyway, I saw this and thought it was funny…
I may or may not have been a Shockonce this morning, having jumped out of bed once I heard it on the radio to immediately check online if it was true. And then I shelled out 16 bucks for the album.
Best purchase ever.
And the album is good. Really good!
