Beyonce Drops an Album and 17 Videos With Zero Advance Marketing

In a move that doubtless gave everyone at Columbia some kind of heart condition, hip-hop artist Beyonce released a full album on iTunes last night with absolutely no fanfare and a music video accompanying each of its 17 songs. The artist's eponymous fifth album is exclusive on iTunes for a week until Dec. 21, and pressings of a CD are underway.
