Beyoncé, Beyoncé

And then there was Bey... With no warning, Beyoncé dropped her fifth solo LP, selling digital copies only (until Dec. 20, at least). The "visual album" clinched No. 1 and made clear what she's been saying all along: she's a grown woman. See: "Drunk in Love" featuring Mr. Carter, the tantalizing metaphor that is "Blow" and the endearing ode to being B-I-C's mom that is "Blue," for example.
