Everyone found it strange that Beyonce was able to get away with releasing a secret album under the noses of all of her fans. The album, “Beyonce,” came out this week and no one knew it was coming. Of course, her millions of fans snapped it up in a second, but it was stunning to see her able to pull this one off without anyone knowing what was going on.
In a video on her Facebook page, Beyonce explains how she was able to get the album out so secretly and why she enjoyed the experience.

“I miss that immersive experience. Now people only listen to a few seconds of a song on the iPods and they don’t really invest in the whole experience. It’s all about the single, and the hype. It’s so much that gets between the music and the art and the fans. I felt like, I don’t want anybody to get the message, when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”

In her video, Beyonce mentioned some of the creative classics of the past, including Michael Jackson’s Thriller as her inspiration, and does a pretty good job of keeping up with the Jacksons when it comes to her impact. Beyonce also says that she is bored and overly familiar with the typical album-dropping process, and wants something more interesting in her life.  It’s going to pay off. This year, Beyonce is expected to double the $53 million she earned last year, making her possibly the highest-earning artist in the world.

“I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans,” she said in the album announcement. “There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans.”
