Beyonce Does it Again!

Daria Ibn-TamasBeyonce Knowles has become something of a household name these days.  The singer has built somewhat of an empire for herself over the years and while she is a revered and respected artist, no one saw her latest stunt coming.  A recent article covers the details of Beyonce’s album that no one knew was coming out- a video album of 17 music videos.

At 12:00am on December 13, Beyonce dropped the surprise of the year, a visual album.  This is Beyonce’s fifth record and is titled, “Beyoncé.”  What a visual album means is that for each track on this 14-track album, there is a music video to accompany it.  This a massive undertaking for any singer, but if anyone could do it, we shouldn’t have expected anyone other than Queen Bey herself.  This surprise album coming out, however, now clarifies why we haven’t heard a new single from Beyonce in quite some time- something that was puzzling her masses of fans.

Beyonce’s new visual album is more than just a surprise for the people.  It lends credibility to Beyonce’s creative genius as an artist and the undeniable fact that she is growing to new heights- far beyond her musical talent, Beyonce is on her way to icon status.

The recording of this album and creating the visuals of this album supposedly began in the summer of 2012 and continued to be developed and produced over the span of about a year and a half.  This visual album is innovative on the level of Michael Jackson’s Thriller when it first came out.  Nothing like it has ever been done before, and we can only imagine what Beyonce will blow the world away with next.  It will be exciting to see what the future holds for Mrs. Carter!
