When Beyoncé dropped 14 new songs and 17 new music videos completely unannounced last week, the internet exploded. For those demanding proof of said explosion, may we refer you to this awesome map that shows Beyoncé-related, around-the-world tweets that occurred in real time after the album drop? It’s kind of amazing. The East Coast of the US essentially gets consumed in bright purple light (used to indicate geotagged tweets), but Russia was underwhelmed.
Since the new album is all about the visuals — “I see music,” the great and powerful Bey said in a statement — the map seems pretty appropriate.
