Beyonce Releases New Album ‘Lemonade’ On TIDAL Following Hour-Long Visual (Stream)

Tonight (April 23), Beyonce debuted her long-awaited, mysterious visual album “Lemonade” on HBO. And, as expected, she also dropped the album right after on TIDAL!

The visual featured, Serena Williams, Zendaya, Amandla Stenberg, and other young black women, continuing the theme of her “Formation” video. Another theme is Beyonce angrily venting after finding out her man cheated (lending some merit to the speculation that Jay Z cheated on her back during the Solange/Jay Z elevator fight). “Try that sh*t again and you ‘gon lose your f*ckign wife,” she says in the visual. Some social media reactions state they think Bey is channeling her parents’ infidelity and divorce story.

Others interpret Lemonade in relation to how black women are viewed and survive in society, “turning lemons into lemonade,” if you will. Twitter user @_MTill tweets:

Lemonade is Beyonce’s sixth solo studio album, which TIDAL describes as “a conceptual project based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing.”

Features on the LP include Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Jack White, and James Blake.
