Stop. What. You're. Doing. If you haven't experienced the greatness that is Queen B's newest project, go fix it and get ready to be given all kinds of life. The mysterious and highly anticipated 'LEMONADE' by Beyoncé premiered worldwide in living color on HBO Saturday night at 9 p.m. Like the tempting teaser videosinsinuated, turns out it was a beautifully crafted presentation of visuals for her newest album that also went live on Tidal right after. Filled with depictions of southern life, love, strong women, and some of the most artistically jarring scenes of vulnerability, 'LEMONADE' touched on not only on relationship complications and family but the beauty and resiliency that is the woman.
Guest appearances ranged from tennis queen Serena Williams to young actresses Amandla Stenberg and Zendaya, all the way to the mothers of victims of police brutality, Eric Garner's Gwen Carr, Michael Brown's Lesley McSpadden, and Trayvon Martin's Sybrina Fulton. In transition areas of songs, Beyoncé recites heart-wrenching poetry crafted by UK's talented Warsan Shire, a Somali-British poet and teacher. When none of us thought Beyoncé could quite outdo her game-changing unannounced release of her now platinum 2014 self-titled album, she goes and stops the world with a never-before-done visual album released on live television.
