Beyonce surprises shoppers at Massachusetts Walmart

, Staff

Beyonce surprised the music world when she released a brand new album overnight earlier this month. Last week, before her show in Boston, she surprised Walmart shoppers in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

The pop-star hit the store to purchase her new self-titled album, which is now in select stores as a physical release after a week of digital-only sales. In addition to her own Christmas shopping, she talked with customers and handed out $50 gift cards to shoppers in the store. In total, she reportedly handed out 750 cards for a total of $37,500. Footage from the appearance is streaming below.

Despite just a few days of sales, Beyonce debuted at #1 on the Billboard 100. Some retailers, notably Target, have refused to sell the physical CD due to its early digital-only release.
