The queen of surprises does it again! Amidst much speculation, Beyoncé released her sixth studio album Lemonade. The album features 12 new songs, including the previously announced Formation.
The concept video is based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing. It showcases artists such as Jack White, James Blake, The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar. Lemonade is the first new music the singer has released since the surprise drop of her eponymous album in 2013. Known for her love for the numeral ‘four’, the 34-year old singer chose to release her album in the fourth month of 2016. Lemonade was exclusively dropped onto the Tidal streaming service, just before the end of the special musical documentary on HBO. The film is also available via Tidal.
In the album, Beyoncé appeared to address long-standing rumors of trouble in her marriage with rapper Jay Z. However, there is a happy ending. The album concludes with a love song featuring the happy couple with their daughter Blue Ivy. After all, ‘All’s well that ends well’!
