  • Beyoncé surprises fans with a secret fifth album, and breaks the internet with these new pictures...

    Beyoncé has officially pulled off the best-kept secret in music, as she surprised fans with a BRAND NEW ALBUM.

    As if a recording a 14 new songs without anyone suspecting a thing wasn’t enough, Bey has managed to record 17 music videos to accompany them.

    Our mind is blown.

    Beyoncé has worked with Drake, Frank Ocean and Justin Timberlake on her fifth studio album, as well as recording ‘Drunk In Love’ with hubby Jay-Z. But it’s Blue Ivy’s appearance that’s got everyone talking, as she’s heard amongst the new album tracks. Too cute!

    The fierce singer is said to have been working on the album for around a year and a half, having shot videos during her Mrs Carter world tour.

    A stream of Instagram and Facebook posts followed Bey’s surprise iTunes release, as the songstress wrote: ‘I see music as more than just what I hear.

    ‘When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies and they’re all connected to the music.

    ‘And I think that’s one of the reasons why I wanted to do a visual album.’
