All it took was Scandal & Thursday Night Football leaving the airwaves for Beyoncé to command your full attention. The singer abruptly released her fifth studio album ironically titled Beyoncé on iTunes Thursday night, shocking not only music industry insiders but longtime fans as well.

The 32-track LP features fourteen brand new songs from the singer as well as collaborations with husband Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Drake, Destiny's Child (Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams) & her own daughter Blue Ivy, the "visual album" continues the recent string of musucians going against the known and current grain to promote and release material. There's also a music video for every single song on the album, meaning that whatever she was cooking up on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour was kept so secret that her own people remained tight lipped about it.

You can purchase Beyoncé now on iTunes.
