Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' is finally coming to Spotify and Apple Music
This is a not a drill.
Beyoncé is ensuring that her fans have no shortage of things to be excited about this spring.
From releasing her groundbreaking Homecoming documentary on Netflix to pairing the special with a surprise 40-track live album, this week continues to be a triumphant one for the BeyHive. The best part? The Queen isn’t done just yet.
As confirmed by Billboard on Thursday (April 12), the audio from Beyoncé’s landmark visual album Lemonade will finally be made available across streaming services, including Spotify and Apple Music.
Formerly a TIDAL exclusive, the Grammy Award-winning album will officially be coming to all streaming platforms on April 23, three years to the date after its monumental release.
The project, which features Jack White, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar and James Blake, continues to be heralded as a career-defining magnum opus. According to Variety, poetry written by Somali poet Warsan Shire will also be included in the new audio release. The work of Shire was included in the Lemonade film, which coincided with the album of the same name. Both were released on April 23, 2016, essentially breaking the internet and further cementing Beyoncé’s pristine legacy as a visionary.
As previously reported, Lemonade has since gone on to win four prime-time Emmy Awards, two Grammys (best urban contemporary album, best music video) and a Peabody award. Additionally, Lemonade also secured its spot as the best-selling album of 2016.
According to Billboard, music industry experts are already predicting that the Homecoming live album could help her add to her already record-setting 66 Grammy nominations. The nominees for the 66th annual awards will be determined and announced later this year.
In the meantime, be sure to set your calendars for April 23 to check out Lemonade outside of TIDAL, as well as keep an eye out for more updates surrounding Beyoncé’s freshly announced creative partnership with Adidas.
