What’s tea when you have lemonade: Beyoncé releases her 6th album

By  |  0 Comments

Well, well, well Beyoncé has done it again. The songstress has dropped a visual album three years after her self-titled album without a lot of press, publicity, or promotion. ‘Lemonade’ is the name of her newest album, and fans worldwide expressed their thoughts freely on how they felt about her new work via social media.

But what is all this talk about “lemonade”? Well, Beyoncé did something a little bit different with her 6th studio album, and her song “Formation” was a clear representation of that. Formation was about black empowerment, girl power and also not being ashamed of black culture (*cues: “I got hot sauce in my bag, Swag!”)

‘Lemonade’ is no different. Throughout the album Beyoncé sings about being powerful in times where one may feel powerless, such as in a bad relationship; and death of our own including Trayvon Martin (shown in images by his mom). Her message was to fight through tough times and be your own cheerleader. If you have to talk highly about yourself to do so, then so be it!
