She never does anything halfway, and Beyoncé Knowles ended up making 17 music videos to go along with her newly-released self-titled album.

The “Single Ladies” singer enlisted directors like Terry Richardson, Todd Tourso, Jake Nava, and Hype Williams to help bring her amazing new songs into a visual realm.

And for one of the tracks, “Blue,” Knowles and directors Ed Burke and Bill Kirstein even included some footage of Beyonce carrying her adorable daughter Blue Ivy on her hip in Rio de Janeiro.

Of her “visual album” concept, Knowles explained, "I see music. It's more than just what I hear. When I'm connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they're all connected to the music."

"I didn't want to release my music the way I've done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There's so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn't want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it's ready and from me to my fans."
