Beyoncé is flawless. She says it herself on her new aptly titled song, “Flawless” — a track some might know better as “Bow Down” — humbly bragging, “I woke up like this.” So it’s no surprise that her new self-titled album, which she dropped this morning (Dec. 13) without any warning — Perhaps you heard it about it? — is not just about the music, but the visuals too.

For all 14 tracks on Queen Bey’s new “visual album,” she’s created a corresponding video that has her getting into the character of each song. She’s a pill popping wanna-be beauty queen in “Pretty Hurts,” a rebel leader in “Superpower” and a roller skating disco diva in “Blow.”
She rolls around in her sheets for “Rocket,” while some well-placed projections turn her into a caged animal for “Partition.” And with Blue Ivy on her hip, she shows off her maternal side in the clip for “Blue.”
