The wait is over! Beyonce has finally released her long-awaited album Lemonade on Saturday night (April 23).
Much like her 2013 self-titled visual album, Queen Bey didn’t give fans a heads up, although her trailer earlier this week was indication that something was coming.
Following the singer’s HBO special of the same name, the R&B mom delivered her album exclusively on Tidal, whose owner is none other than her hubby, Jay Z. This will be Beyonce’s sixth album and her second visual project, which will most likely feature videos from the project.
The 12-song collection features a short film, which is based on “every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing,” according to a press release. Guest appearances on the album include Kendrick Lamar, the Weeknd and James Blake.
There’s more surprises in store for the Beyhive as her “Formation” World Tour will kick off in Miami on April 27 and run through July. DJ Khaled is the co-headliner of the trek.
Upon the release of Beyonce’s Lemonade, fans jumped on Twitter to express their joy for the album’s digital release. However, there were some who were upset that Lemonade is a Tidal exclusive and are demanding that Bey release to other competing streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify. That will probably not happen anytime soon.

it's still very blasphemous to create a project called #Lemonade that in no way involves Gucci Mane or any 1017/Brick Squad affiliates
