Could Beyoncé’s Visual Album Become The New Commercial Standard?

Her 5th self-titled album, which dropped on December 13th, is what’s being called a “visual album” and is comprised of 14 tracks and 17 accompanying videos. Beyond that, the album sold 80,000 copies on iTunes within the first three hours of its release, and has already hit number one in over 100 countries worldwide.

NB: Not that I’m into Beyonce but you can’t deny that the promotion for her new album is pretty innovative 🙂
