TCE #18 - Bey Bey's New Cey Dey

11:00pm - 12:00am

It's been pretty hard to ignore this week: Beyonce just dropped her 5th album last Friday, with no notice, exclusively on iTunes, whole album only. It's a bold move in today's music distribution climate, but the numbers don't lie: This album is huge. But, is this due to the novel release strategy, or are other factors at play here? We give out take on this strategy, including whether it will pay off for Beyonce, and what it means to her music fans.
