Last night, Beyoncé surprised everyone with a new album (complete with 14 songs and 17 videos)—once again proving why she's a force to reckon with. Looking back on her career, she's had several mythical moments. From shutting down the 2013 Super Bowl to overcoming stage fans and making beyhivers faint at concerts, these are Beyoncé's most superhuman moments to date.
She Lays Hands on Fans
Is she a pop star or the Pope? Sometimes it's unclear given her fan dedication. And it just so happens that her stans faint whenever she touches them.
She Shuts Down the Super Bowl
Who can honestly say they shut down the biggest televised sports event of the year? Beyoncé can officially add professional showstopper to her already lengthy resume. It's lights out!
She Flies to NYC From London and Back in 24hrs
When you have tons of cash and you're labeled as one of the most powerful women on the face of the earth, there's no distance you can't travel. Back in May, in the midst of her world tour, Beyoncé finished up a show at London's O2 Arena, flew to New York for the 2013 Met Gala and flew back to London for her next show in a matter of hours.
She Doesn't Skip a Beat When Battling Fans
This summer, Beyoncé encountered a fussy fan. And no, not a belligerent fan. The pop star's blonde locks got caught in a fan while she flawlessly sang "Halo." In true diva style, she didn't skip a beat—rather she poked fun at herself after the incident.
She Bounces Back From Falling Down a Flight of Stairs
Years ago on her BDay tour, Beyoncé took a nasty spill down a set of stairs while performing "Ring the Alarm." Although it looked pretty bad, and you could hear a collective gasp, she kept on dancing like a trooper. Had it been anyone else, the show would have ended.
She's Often Compared to Jesus
For some, her songs are hymns and her lyrics are the gospel. Ask any major fan and they'll share her story. It doesn't help she's often called "Beysus."
She Finds a Breeze Where Ever She Goes
Have you ever noticed a breeze follows Beyoncé? No matter if it's the stage or the street, she always has a perfect photo opp.
She Dances Through 108+ Shows a Year
So, having watched her live in concert, it's clear the sista gets a full workout on stage with about two hours of top-notch choreography. But to do that... say 110 times in the span of a year? That's what we call dedication. By the end of 2013, she will have put on 100 plus shows and danced hundreds of hours on stage. And that's not counting rehearsals!

She Drops a Surprise Album with 17 Music Videos
Beyoncé dropped her self-titled fifth album complete with 17 music videos on Friday, December 13th. Fans from across the globe are hailing the project "game changing." It's certainly the first of its kind. What's more incredible is that she and her impressive team have been able to keep this a secret for so long. Yes, she's been spotted doing little things here and there, but no one thought it would come together quite like this.
