Beyonce has changed the game. In a surprise move that shocked both critics and fans alike, Queen Bey dropped a new self-titled album exclusively on iTunes while you were sleeping last night.

Simply titled 'Beyonce,' the effort boasts 14 new tracks and 17 new videos, including one for 'Grown Woman,' for which a teaser leaked earlier this week. All of the clips were shot around the world including New York, Paris, Australia and Rio de Janeiro.

The collection also features guest appearances from her hubby Jay-Z ('Dunk in Love'), Drake ('Mine'), Frank Ocean ('Superpower') and Blue Ivy, herself, on 'Blue.'

You can cop the entire visual album right now on iTunes for $15.99.

"I see music," says Beyonce about her visual project. "It's 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."

As far as dropping music without any fanfare, the R&B mom said she wanted to give an album directly to her fans without hesitation.

"I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it," she stated.  "I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans."

"There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out," she adds. "I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans."

Well, fans are very appreciative of Beyonce's early Christmas gift. People flooded Twitter with reactions to the lauded songstress' surprise new album.
