Just minutes before midnight EST Friday (Dec. 13) morning, Beyonce released her fifth album, a self-titled set, exclusively on iTunes. Details are still emerging on confirmed producers, but guests credited on the "exclusive visual album" are Jay Z, Drake, Frank Ocean and daughter Blue Ivy. "XO," the rumored first single co-penned by Ryan Tedder and The-Dream, is featured. But songs like "Grown Woman," produced by Timbaland and featured in a Pepsi commercial earlier this year, and "Standing on the Sun," penned by Sia and featured in an H&M ad, are nowhere to be found.
Billboard will have more on this story as it develops.
