(CNN) -- Beyoncé has delivered the ultimate holiday surprise.
Just after midnight on the east coast, the singer suddenly dropped a brand new 14-track self-titled album on iTunes. That's right — without any pre-promotion.

AKRON, Ohio – An Ohio man who fatally shot his ailing wife in her hospital bed is due to be sentenced after a prosecutor recommended a six-year prison term instead of a possible life sentence.
An attorney for 68-year-old John Wise has said they'll ask the governor for clemency after he is sentenced Friday by an Akron judge.
The Massillon (MAS'-ih-luhn) man says he shot his debilitated wife out of love in August 2012 after she suffered an aneurysm and appeared to be in pain. Mercy is not a defense to a murder charge in Ohio.
Wise was convicted on charges including aggravated murder with a firearm specification, which could carry a life sentence.
The prosecutor said the unique circumstances warranted leniency. She recommended that Wise be sentenced on a lesser offense.
