NEW YORK, N.Y. - Beyonce says even though she worked hard on her new album, she had her doubts minutes before its release.

She says she wondered if people were going to hate it. She needn't have worried.

The singer's fifth album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts this week after it was released without the public knowing. "Beyonce" sold 617,000 units in the U.S. in a week; it has sold more than 1 million albums worldwide.

The album includes 14 songs and 17 videos. Beyonce held a screening for the videos Saturday at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

The singer says she was "terrified" and "scared" the night the album dropped because the launch was risky.
