The Beyonce Impact: Artists Who’ve Dropped Surprise Albums
Bad Bunny‘s been a hectic bunny.
The Puerto Rican super star born Benito Martínez shocked fans on Nov. 27 when he launched a brand-new album, El Último Trip del Mundo, entirely out of the blue.
While launching three albums in one year is an accomplishment of superhuman creative strength, the practice of dropping them with zero promo is nothing brand-new.
However, though Queen Bey made the surprise drop a thing, you may be surprised to understand that she wasn’t the first one to do it.
Take a look at the history of the surprise album below, from its rock roots to its rap and pop present.
