Surprise!

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

This is not a test. I repeat, this is NOT a test!

Beyonce, aka the 2013 King of Trolls, has just pulled the greatest stunt of the year – by releasing a surprise album. There was zero promotion, zero hints, zero announcements…nothing. The 14-track album has features from Jay Z, Drake, Blue Ivy (aww!) and more. Oh, did I mention every single track is accompanied by a music video, as well as three bonus clips? View the official tracklisting for the singer’s fifth album below & click here to see the album’s visual booklet (courtesy of Just Jared).

“I miss that immersive experience. Now, people only listen to a few seconds of a song on their iPods. They don’t really invest in a whole album. It’s all about the single. And the hype. It’s so much that gets between the music and the artist and the fans. I felt like…I don’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready. From me to my fans.” Click here to view part one of Beyonce’s “Self-Titled” documentary on Facebook, and check out the previews for all 17 videos below!
