Beyonce's early Christmas present, Visual LP drops

Beyonce - new LP

Beyonce busted out an early Christmas present for her fans with a stealth LP drop this past week.

Mrs. Carter dropped her fifth studio album, “Beyonce” (Columbia), in one giant package on iTunes.

The 14 songs and 17 videos comprise a “visual album,” the coup de grace on a year of unusual music 'A' list LP marketing ploys.

“Beyonce” sold 80,000+ copies in the first three hours of its availability early Friday.

This past year Beyonce headlined the Super Bowl halftime in February and a national arena tour without any hint of a follow-up to her previous solo album, “4” (2011).

Beyonce collaborates with Frank Ocean and Miguel, video director Hype Williams and even actor Harvey Keitel. “Blow” (done with Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake) opens with Beyonce in jazz vocalist mode then shifts into a 1980s tinged groove.. .
