Lemonade is the sixth studio album by American singer and songwriter Beyoncé. It was released on April 23, 2016, through Parkwood Entertainment. The album was accompanied by the release of a 60-minute short film of the same name, which premiered on HBO. It features co-production from a wide range of artists, and includes guest vocals from artists including James Blake,Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Jack White.
The album is a much darker album than her previous visual, and has a more varied structure in terms of musical genres, encompassing a wide range of them from R&B, soul, pop, rock, blues, to even country, funk, and hip hop.
To further promote the album, Beyoncé will embark on The Formation World Tour in April 2016.
The album was recorded from late 2014 to early 2016. Lemonade is “based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing,” Tidal said in an announcement
The album title was inspired by Beyoncé’s grandmother Agnéz Deréon, as well as her husband Jay Z’s grandmother, Hattie White. At the end of track “Freedom”, Hattie White is heard speaking to a crowd at her 90th birthday party in April 2015. During the speech, Hattie says “I had my ups and downs, but I always found the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.”
