By Chelsea Lewis ,

Not many artists could pull off the accomplishment that Beyoncé did with her surprise album release. Beyoncé released a full-length album, without any publicity or marketing or anyone even knowing. The album went straight to number one on the iTunes charts. This new technique might become the way of the music industry. Not many artists would have the star power or musicianship to succeed with such a surprise musical attack.

The musician or band would have to have a large dedicated fan base, a successful album history and full-blown star power.

Country superstar Taylor Swift or rock ‘n’ roll legends Pearl Jam?
