4 years ago, at this very moment, Beyoncé dropped her long-awaited fifth album, ’BEYONCÉ’ with no promotion! It crashed iTunes, and became the fastest selling album in the history of the iTunes store (at the time), selling over 828,000 copies in just THREE days! The album went #1 in 118 countries as well.
The release of ’BEYONCÉ’ still impacts works released today. Trends such as “the visual album” as well as releasing albums on Friday are a result of this iconic body of work.
