Last week was a big week for music lovers – Drake drops Views, Calvin Harris and Rihanna debut This is what you came for – listen to it, it’s amazing – and Beyonce drops Lemonade and has us all wondering, who’s Becky with the good hair? Queen B has captivated the world with the release of Lemonade. We have Lemonade on repeat.
We love it and and here’s why:
It’s a visual album – who doesn’t love seeing and hearing art? The video is a perfect compliment to this already perfect album and without it, some of the meaning behind the album may have been lost.
It gets personal – the album explores Beyonce’s personal, including husband Jay-z’s alleged infidelities. Although, given her decision to release the album on Tidal, owned by husband Jay-Z, has all wondering if the album was a wronged woman’s expose a or an incredible marketing play.
It’s engaged us in a conversation that is about so much more than music – Lemonade has us talking about race, gender, feminism and infidelity.
Download it. We promise you’ll love it as much we as do.
