Beyonce took a page out of her husband’s book. Seeing the success Jay Z had with the release of a surprise album, Beyonce decided to do the same thing with her fifth album. “Beyonce” appeared overnight on iTunes in late December of 2013 and her fans lost their minds. Bey also shot a video for each song and the album was released as an audio/visual project. In just three days, “Beyonce” sold more than 600,000 digital copies and the song “Drunk In Love” was everywhere. Although Queen Bey racked up at the Grammys, “Beyonce” lost Album of the Year to Beck’s “Morning Phase.”
