NEW YORK (AP) — Beyonce has announced and released an album on the same day.

Beyonce released her fifth self-titled album exclusively on iTunes early Friday.

The album features 14 songs and 17 videos. Collaborators include Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean. The closing track, "Blue," features her daughter Blue Ivy.

Beyonce says in a statement that she "didn't want to release my music the way I've done it." She says she wanted the album to come out when it was ready, from her to her fans.
