With an impressive list of guests on the album and production from the “Queen B” herself, this album might knock you off your socks. We already got a taste of what to expect from the album. Earlier this week she released a video for the single “Spirit.”

Seems as if Beyonce’s been busy.  Staring in one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, having a documentary film being released on Netflix and releasing two albums based off of these two projects. We can’t wait to see what she does next.
