So, yesterday the whole world may well have stopped and we wouldn’t have known as Beyonce dropped her new album. The announcement sent the WHOLE of Twitter into meltdown and Queen B even managed to break iTunes. WHO breaks iTunes?
Overnight on Friday (December 13), Beyonce thought she’d surprise her legion of fans by casually dropping a new album on iTunes and making a simplistic and understated post about it on Facebook. It wasn’t just us it took by surprise, even Hollywood has reacted to it and it’s safe to say, everyone loves the album.
We had NO warning that Bey would be dropping an album so soon as it was made out to us all that the new material would be coming in 2014. With the announcement that Queen B is heading back to Europe with her Mrs Carter World Tour in February, we kind of knew the album would be coming in early 2014… but not so soon.
Speaking in a press statement yesterday, B said she was bored of running the same circle all the time – she wanted to do something different and bring the element of surprise back to the music industry.
Upon the album being released, Hollywood and its celebrities went into meltdown as they realised the magnitude of what Bey had done.
One of our favourite tweets of the day came from Katy Perry who tweeted: “Don’t talk to me today unless it’s about @Beyonce THANX”.
Lady Gaga was also happy to have Honey B back as she tweeted: “Good morning! Photoshoot and rehearsal, why aren’t there more hours in the day. (Eye cream) and welcome back Honey B we missed you <3 <3”.

The legendary Cher also tweeted to say: .@IfUSeekSergio @Beyonce I Haven’t Heard it,But how can You NOT <3 #BEYONCE (sic)”.
X Factor’s Demi Lovato tweeted: “I’m literally FUH-REAKING OUT over this new #BEYONCE… The music vids?!!?! I CANT HANDLE THIS MUCH FIERENESS… #NOJOKE #DYING (sic)”.
Glee’s Amber Riley added: “I just & watched newscasters argue passionately about Santa then Jesus’ ethnicity. Blink *blink really ya’ll lol who cares becuz BEYONCE! (sic)”.
Michele Williams of Destiny’s Child threw her tweet in the mix as she tweeted: “Y’all alright? #theslayage #beyonce #nitenite”.
Perez Hilton finally tweeted: “If @Beyonce can go on a world tour, record a new album, film 17 music videos, be a mom and a wife – then I can wake up and #BeLikeBeyonce!!!”.
So, there you have it. Beyonce has the ability to send Hollywood into meltdown, never mind her legion of fans.
Did you download B’s new album yesterday? Are you LOVING it as much as we are?
