For fans in Chicago, Friday the 13th proved to be awfully lucky this year.
That's because they attended a Beyonce concert in the United Center and were treated to the first-ever live performance of "XO," one of the 14 new tracks that make up this singer's just-released self-titled album.
“I’m going to sing this song, which is a brand new song. It hasn’t even been out for two days. I wanna sing this one for y’all because it was written for y’all,” Beyonce told fans before launching into the rendition.
Watch it now:
The surprise release of Beyonce's eponymous album on Thursday sold more than 430,000 copies in just over a day.
It's on pace to move around 600,000 copies in its first week, which would make "BEYONCE" the biggest debuting album by a female artist this year.
The album is also projected to be the highest-selling debut album by a female artist since Taylor Swift’s "Red," which sold 1.2 million copies in 2012.
Bow down to Queen B, music universe. It's her world right now. The rest of us are just living in it.
