Hey, hey.

I do not adjust to do that.

Beyonce's new apple made headlines.

How far did she really push the new boundaries.

Joining me is an electronic music company.

Most artists releasing music on itunes these days.

How innovative is a beyonce being here?

She is being really innovative the more i think about it.

You cannot buy any track right now.

You have to buy the full album.

It will not be available until next week.

She has bungled and videos for every single track.

At the -- $15.99, it is next.

-- almost like an event.

It is like you are buying a ticket to experience a beyonce in a way on items that you cannot do anywhere else.

This a new world of music.

She is connecting to the band -- fans, this is her art and these are her tracks.

Nobody is going to do anything to them as far as she can tell.

She is in control.

By breaking this on instagram and having access to twitter and facebook and all the other channels, she is interacting with her fans.

Her fans are listening to this at the same time as the critics which is unlike getting a prerelease aversion to the critics and getting feedback.

Is this hard to keep secret?

That is what i wonder.

How do you fly around the world and put this together and nobody knows?
