Beyonce features author Chimamanda Adichie in her new album

Queen Bey surprised her fans by secretly dropping a new album on iTunes last night December 12th. The self titled album is Beyonce's 5th solo album and features 31 tracks, 14 of which are new songs.

In the new album, Beyonce collaborated with Jay Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland....and featured our very Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on a track titled Flawless. Beyonce put a portion of the award winning author's speech about feminism and roles women play in the society in the song. Pop meets Literature! Amazing stuff.

Meanwhile Beyonce has filmed 17 new music videos, one of which she released on Facebook last night. You have to be really big to release an album without any promos or prior warning to fans.

Alicia says... said...

This goes to the Nigerians (especially the women) who were crucifying Oprah for not wanting to get married and have children. Listen to Chidamanda! Beyonce put the best part of her speech in the video at that.
Go Chidamanda Ngozi Adichie. Green. White. Green.
