Do you think Blackout could have been a surprise album in 2007?

I personally think so. She legit did no promo and it was at #1 until billboard changed the rules for that moment exclusively. Imagine the uproar. It really could’ve dropped and people would’ve eaten it up regardless of the promo, and they did.

I doubt it. Surprise albums just weren’t a thing back then and especially during that climate of both buying CDs and downloading. For Beyonce it just worked as CD sales had declined by 2013 so it was easy for the album to just turn up on iTunes and Spotify out of the blue.

What do you mean by “could have been a surprise album”?

are you saying underground hit bc the lack of promotion? Then YES 💯%. I think B could have done no promotion or even music videos and this album would have been a hit.

but if your question is could blackout have been a surprise release like Beyoncé does surprise releases (AKA fully polished and created without anyone knowing)…then no. That’s not Britney Jean Spears.

Lol…on a completely separate note, I had a real life dream that I met B and we were talking about her music. in the dream she asks me what my favorite song is. I say Gimme More and she says her fav is Toy Soldier…and then we mutually agree that we  can’t be friends and the convo ends. 😆😂

Aww I love this dream,  I had it so many times!! But we talked about Gimme More and Rebellion, she is lovely in my dreams hahha
