Features 12 videos. The album title was inspired by Beyoncé's grandmother, Agnéz Deréon, as well as Jay Z's grandmother, Hattie White. At the end of the 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." See more »

A Complex and Thorough Return to Form for Beyonce Signalling a Positively New Turn in her Career.
After her raunchy and overtly explicit self-titled visual album released in 2013, Beyonce returns with a more toned down, yet her most empowering work of art to date. The Lemonade visual features complex themes of infidelity that is prevalent throughout the film as viewers are taken through a scorn woman's journey from Intuition to Anger all of which are different stages of emotion a woman goes through when they are cheated on.
The cinematography varies throughout the film but remains to be consistent to the overall experience of the film. Asides from the film, Beyonce's music is both personal and raw as she experiments with different genres of music such as R&B, rock, reggae and even country. Despite the wildly different genres of music Beyonce plays with, much like the cinematography, it all mends together well to produce the over arching story that she intends the viewers to experience.
Beyonce's Lemonade is her best work to date.
