All hail, Queen B.

Beyonce dropped a new album on iTunes yesterday, stunning the music world and causing an insane uproar on Twitter.

The self-titled, self-described "visual" CD is comprised of 14 fresh tracks and 17 videos (one of which features daughter Blue Ivy) and it managed to actually crash iTunes temporarily yesterday due to the mad rush of fans to download.

According to Billboard sources, meanwhile, it also sold over 80,000 copies in just three hours after the closing sales window ended Friday at midnight PST.

That's just nutty.

Beyonce has given fans an early Christmas present and a huge Christmas surprise:

She just released a brand new album! Full of 14 songs! And 17 videos!

Titled "BEYONCE" and available only on iTunes, the album is described by the artist as "visual' and was released without a single word of hype.

"I see music," Beyonce said of the release. "It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music."

The toddler who danced her heart out to Beyonce and became a viral phenom has taken her fancy footwork to - where else - Ellen DeGeneres' Show!

Heaven (a.k.a. "two-year-old dances to Beyonce" on Google) showed that she's picked up a thing or 20 from her mother, who's a dancer and choreographer.

Her videos, posted by mom, racked up hundreds of thousands of views, and after her appearance on Ellen, that number will likely climb. Big time.

Heaven's awesome, on and off the dance floor!

Watch her put Ellen in her place (1:20), then stay for the encore performance of Beyonce-inspired dance moves and the big surprise Ellen had for her ...

Cinderella. Beyonce.

Put them together and what do you get?

Cinderonce!

A retelling of the classic fairy tale through the superstar's hits, Toddrick Hall's Cinderonce spans multiple generations and entertainment genres.

The parallels between the timeless table and Bey's music are quite striking. Listen to what happens when you mash up the princess and the Queen:

In the aftermath of the George Zimmerman verdict that resonated across the U.S., Beyonce honored Trayvon Martin at the Mrs. Carter Show in Nashville.

The 31-year-old singer offered a moment of silence for the slain Florida teen, whose death continues to sadden so many around the nation and world.

She also covered Whitney Houston's legendary "I Will Always Love You."

Martin has become a cause celebre among A-listers since his death 17 months ago, as evidenced by the mostly irate celebrity Twitter reactions to the verdict.

Beyonce did not criticize the jury specifically, however.

By choosing to tenderly and simply honor the teen and his family, she left the legal and political issues this case has raised to be debated another day.

Beyonce's latest single has just leaked online, and "Standing on the Sun" has the markings of a summer hit, with its upbeat melody and sizzling lyrics.

"Feel like I'm on fire when you touch me," she croons. "My body is yours tonight."

Oh, Bey. Stop. You don't need to tease us like that. We know it's Jay's.

Take a listen to the tropical track below and see what you think:

Beyonce already previewed the song, performed it during the Belgium stop of her Mrs. Carter World Tour in May, and used it in her H&M commercials.

Still, it hasn't dropped in studio form until this moment.

What do you think of "Standing on the Sun"?

Beyonce is a "Grown Woman" and she'll do whatever she wants.

Now you can listen to her sing about it in her new, leaked single!

"Grown Woman" has been teased for weeks after first appearing in the singer's Pepsi commercial, and was slated for an April 8 release date.

That date came and went with no word from Bey or her label.

Fans were left wondering - especially given the Beyonce pregnant chatter - if their idol had all but given up on her supposedly forthcoming album.

However, Beyonce has played the song on her Mrs. Carter World Tour, and it's finally made its way online ... whether it'll stay there is another story.

Anyway, listen now and hit the comments with your thoughts!

Very well played, Beyonce.

In a video that combines both her music career and her modeling career, the singer has released a preview of "Standing in the Sun," a track off her upcoming album, and combined it with her new H&M bikini campaign.

Watch the artist strut her very hot stuff in a very small bathing suit now:

The late Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, is speaking out about Beyonce's new cover of "Back to Black," and false reports that he slammed it.

The song for the upcoming Great Gatsby soundtrack features Andre 3000 and prompted reports that Mitch wasn't a fan, claiming B "brings nothing" to it.

Not the case, says Mitch, who clarified his take on the song.

He tweeted: "I like Beyonce's cover and have no probs."
