Has Beyonce Changed The Game?

By now, you've heard that Beyonce somehow managed to record a full length album of 14 songs, the self-titled Beyonce, AND shoot 17 music videos...

And drop them on ITunes on a Thursday night with nary a leak, a peep, or promo destroying the Internet and our damn lives in the process. 

Consider our wigs--and those of seemingly every pop star—snatched. 

So has she changed the game?? Has Beyonce single-handedly changed how we're going to be getting our music? 

You can check out previews of all of Bey's new videos here.

Beyonce explains:

"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. 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. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans.

"I just want to give my album to the people I love and respect and hope that they feel the same thing I felt when I made the music."

It's an exciting, bold choice and we hope it pays off!

For those traditionalists, look for the double disc CD/DVD at retail in time for the holidays.

What do you think of this move by, Bey, Instincters? (And since this is also about the actual music--favorite tracks? Videos??)

Snooze

I don't see anything special about this? Who cares it's another boring CD!

I don't like the songs, but if I would have liked even one, she makes you buy the whole album. So no thanks! 

Beyonce is the TRUTH... 

I am in shock and in awe of her, she is truly the Pop Queen of our time with no disrespect o any other artist, but she changed the game and proved that she is an innovator. I liked her before but now I love her because she has proven to be a leader!!

Figures, she's always gotta try & 1 up Mariah.. Mimi just did a "different" style by releasing her latest song directly to facebook, & right after Mimi had those kids, wouldn't you know Beyonce gets that baby bump. The difference is that Mariahs was real, while beyonces folded awkwardly when she sat down in one of her interviews.. lol what a joke beyonce is, trying to be so relevant & controversial wearing that satanic ring & stuff lol. But, I guess it is a very sincere show of flattery @ Mariah! ;-)

Bold yet smart move. Look to Cher and 'women's world' for example.
