Watch All Five Parts of the Beyoncé Documentary

As if anyone other than Beyoncé would be allowed to have the first word on her new album, she just released the final video in a series of short documentaries about Beyoncé on her YouTube channel. If you're gonna surprise drop your album along with seventeen videos, you might as well throw in a promotional documentary. Each part goes through a different aspect of the album ("The Visual Album," "Perfection," "Run 'N Gun," "Liberation" and "Honesty") with behind-the-scenes footage of everyone involved with its creation, from Jay Z to Blue Ivy to Pharrell, whose motivational speech in "Honesty" seems to sum up the experience: "When does a momma and a wife do that? I mean, you just ran through jail and just let all the women out. You set women free."
