Beyoncé released her second visual album titled ‘Lemonade’ during HBO Special..and then crashes Tidal as soon as they announced the album is available on their site! This visual album is powerful, it talks about pain, intuition, cheating, craziness, cheating, lies, deceptions, yet Queen Bey also embarks on empowerment, redemption, hope, self love, pain, healing, family, forgiveness and unity.
Beyoncé is going to start a revolution led by love. Her message is deep yet so simple, the meaning behind the album’s title seemed to have come from a speech Jay Z’s grandmother, Hattie White, gave at her 90th birthday party last year:
“I’ve had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.” LEMONADE

Everything you need to know about LEMONADE
“Pray You Catch Me”
The stunning opening ballad was co-written by British electro-soul singer James Blake, Brooklyn singer-songwriter Kevin Garrett, and Beyoncé. (Bey and Garrett also co-produced it.) Beyoncé ‘s visual album begins with her on a stage and in the fields of New Orleans, the main setting for her 11-chapter opus. Each tells her personal version of the stages of grief — intuition, denial, anger, apathy, emptiness, accountability, reformation, forgiveness, resurrection, hope, redemption — and adapts the writing of the Somali-British poet extraordinaire Warsan Shire for all the spoken word interludes between songs. (Throughout the film, Beyoncé quotes from “warsan versus melancholy (the 7 stages of being lonely),” “For Women Who Are Difficult To Love,” “The unbearable weight of staying (the end of the relationship),” and “Nail Technician As Palm Reader.”)
