Beyoncé Knowles kept her album secret from “nearly everyone involved”.
The 32-year-old singer launched her self-titled fifth solo record on iTunes in the early hours of Friday morning.
And according to TMZ the surprise release of her album and music videos even shocked the very people who participated in making the works a reality.
“Beyoncé didn’t just keep her new album and music videos a secret from the world – she actually kept it from nearly EVERYONE involved in production… even her dancers,” the website writes.
“One of the dancers for the Blow video – a girl named Morgan Hebert – tells us, she knew she was involved in some kind of video project for the singer when they were filming in Houston in September, but she didn’t know exactly what.”
According to Morgan, the entire filming process for Blow was impeccably orchestrated.
The entertainer claims Beyoncé and her team made sure no one truly knew what was going on.
“Morgan says it was all arranged VERY last minute,” the outlet claims.
“She and a few other dancers from Beyoncé’s Super Bowl show flew to Houston for the two-day shoot and it was like Fort Knox. No cell phones, no pictures, nothing. She also had to sign a scary confidentiality agreement.
“Morgan says she figured it was all for a music video, but didn’t expect anything to be released until next year.”
Beyoncé’s latest album boasts 14 songs and collaborations with the likes of her husband Jay-Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Frank Ocean. There are also 17 videos – one for each track plus three bonus promos – and Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy features on the final song.
