Beyonce is just full of surprises these days! The singer continued to celebrate the release of her self-titled, record-breaking, fifth studio album on Friday, Dec. 20 — with a trip to a Walmart store in a town called Tewksbury.
Following her big night out in NYC on Thursday — which included a Brooklyn show and album release party — the “XO” singer, 32, scurried off to Massachusetts and completely ambushed Walmart shoppers on Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
Beyonce pushed her own cart up and down the aisles of the retailer and even purchased her new album, which went on sale in Walmart stores Friday.
The songstress pushed her own cart up and down the aisles of the retailer and even purchased a copy of Beyonce. Dressed impeccably in an aqua-colored crop top and matching skirt, paired with a stylish black leather jacket, the singer walked into the store, beaming, as she looked over at a showcase of her latest solo album. (Physical copies of Beyonce went on sale in stores Friday, just one week after its secret, exclusive iTunes release.)
Every person on site received a $50 Walmart gift card from Beyonce, the store manager told Us Weekly.
Jay Z’s wife not only addressed the crowd and greeted eager shoppers, but left each customer with a holiday gift!
Every person on site received a $50 Walmart gift card from the global superstar, the store manager told Us. A total of 750 cards ($37,500 worth of gift cards purchased by Bey) were enclosed within envelopes that read, “Happy Holidays from Beyonce.”
At one point during her visit, Blue Ivy’s mom even held a baby girl and told the little one, “You are beautiful,” as seen in one person’s Instagram video. But baby Blue was clearly on her mommy’s mind: Along with her new album, Beyonce’s shopping cart included a few toys for her 23-month-old daughter.
