UT Students Lose It Over Beyonce’s Surprise Album

Late in the night on Dec. 12, Beyonce gave the entire world an early Christmas gift by releasing a surprise self-titled album with 14 new songs and 17 videos. Like the rest of the world, UT students completely lost their sh*t at the news.

The album features collaborations with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, Drake and Frank Ocean. According to Billboard, the  press release for the album says that it is “designed to be consumed as a comprehensive audio/visual piece from top to bottom. The antithesis of making singles, the visual album is a non-linear journey through the thoughts and visions of Beyoncé.”

As expected, Twitter exploded with fans’ reaction tweets to this momentous occasion. Caps lock was almost always involved.

Students dropped everything they were doing to download her new album. Like anything you were doing was really that important anyway.
