After a lot of anticipation and guesses on what #Lemonade was all about, Beyonce premiered the hour long project on HBO last night and it was her visual album. On HBO people got to see the visuals of the album and in true Beyonce fashion, it was amazing.

The 34-year-old entertainer has twelve songs on the album, including the previously released hit “Formation.” There are four collaborations on the release with artists like The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar.

The HBO special featured different videos based on emotions rather than revealing the actual song titles. You can see all those emotion titles below as well!

Describing #Lemonade, RollingStone says

Lemonade traces a story of infidelity and reconciliation. It starts with Beyoncé questioning her relationship. “Are you cheating on me?” she asks the viewer. When the evidence of unfaithfulness becomes conclusive, her first move is protest – “They don’t love you like I love you,” she intones – followed by anger: “I’m gonna fuck me up a bitch,” she says gleefully in one song, baseball bat in hand. (Later she adds, “You ain’t married to an average bitch, boy!”) But after she appears to cut loose from an untrustworthy partner – “Me and my baby gonna be alright, we gonna live a good life” – the tale shifts towards cease-fire and reunion. The hour ends with shots of happy couples and an assertion that our heroine will move forward. “My torturer became my remedy,” Beyoncé explains. “So we’re gonna heal. We’re gonna start again.” On her way through the relationship plot, she also tells a story about the experience of black womanhood. A snippet pulled from a speech by Malcom X declares, “The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.” Men are almost entirely absent from the film, physically and emotionally; in their place, large groups of women appear again and again, presenting a united front of solidarity and sisterhood.”

      I guess, I’m the only one who isn’t into Beyonce. I really don’t understand the rave and obsession folks have with her.

      But I respect her dedication, and how she’s managed to stay out of drama over the years. And this album seems like she’s making statement about herself and showing different sides of who she is.
      Oh yeah, Bey loves her some Jay z(u betta don’t kill that love). And blue ivy is beautiful.

      Not really. Adele brought true music back which is relatable to everyone. I mean her youtube number on just one song has reached billion. Beyoncé and Rihanna are doing bunch of gimmicks with small music here and there.

    Just when u think she’s reached her creative peak, she comes back with a Fire so fierce to shut those thoughts down.

    She’s only gets better with age. So proud to have her as my Fave.

    The visuals are different. You get to see her in her own hair, her own color, her own everything.

    I like that this is not just about nudity, violence, sex and drugs. I like that we are seeing women empowerment, love and life and relationship issues. I like that we are talking about freedom and healing.
    This is beautiful. Go Queen of Slay!
    I can’t wait!

    This project is more of a movement than your average album. Just like any other Bey’s album i need some time of replay in the kitchen, driving and when in feisty mood to get into it.

    God bless the person who put the whole up on Vimeo…was so not ready to signup for tidal or HBO

    Beyonce is an ARTIST jeeeeze! she has gotten to the stage where she can just tell her own story through her art without trying to appease any Costomer base.

    I watched the whole thing and was just full of respect, and pride, a fellow black lady! Ah! May we all reach that point. Where our perfected craft speaks for itself, without apologies #blackbillgateinthemaking.

    When Bolanle Olukanmi said on one of ‘Moments’ episode that she so respect Beyoncé because of how she’s been able to stay ontop of her game and still highly relevant.
    She doesn’t just do things the ordinary people do, imagine a glorious story through an album. That Creativity. I respect for her just skyrocketed.
    Beyoncé is the King. even men in the industry respect her so much.

    so guess what? Lemonade was nice. It’s really a Warsan Shire (words) and Kahlil Joseph (video) project with Beyonce popularizing it, bankrolling it too I think, and cheapening/spoiling it, with some exceptions – sometimes she carries her body in ways that reflect the mythology they’re gunning for,,,

    She is well-known, and without her ‘name,’ it wouldn’t have been seen/discussed by so many. The discussion too ma sef, lowest common denominator – speculation about cheating, picking up on single phrases to guess how it might be autobiographical? What can I say? Illiteracy is rife in the land.

    She didn’t sing much – thank God, she recited stuff throughout – still annoying voice, she brought her eyeliner and dead-inside face along, and they tried to ruin Serena by making a lot of her body mass disappear, and since Ms Williams didn’t get liposuction just to play about in a music video we can guess it’s just a visual trick, but you know she’s still a great tennis player, one of the greatest ever…

      now on to the audio album. I tried and failed to endure Formation, then I listened to the Jack White one and the Kendrick one. All as expected. #bless her heart
