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 »
My grandma said nothing real can be threatened. True love brought salvation back into me. With every tear came redemption. And my torture became my remedy.

I enjoyed this due to the amazing visuals, honestly it is fantastic to see the lighting and cinematography. Any fan of either will enjoy this extremely well put together visual album.
Beyoncé and her team has put a lot of effort into songs, most of which are quite good. My favourite songs were Sorry, All night and 6 Inch. They all used beautiful costumes and lighting in the performance, which just perfectly works together. Some songs are only decent in my opinion, they could have used tweaking to make them a little better.
The narration of poetry is sometimes a bit confusing, as I did not understand most of its relation to the story. Not really a problem with the visual album bu it also kinda annoyed me that her songs aren't available on spotify! I really enjoyed one of the songs and wanted to put it in my playlist. But the visual album is great and deserves the praise it got.
