Beyoncé's Lemonade: Where to watch? When to watch? And more questions answered

Posted on


Are you ready for some Lemonade? After teasing fans all week long, Beyoncé is getting ready to unveil her secret project on HBO tonight. Forget that cryptic trailer, we can all get a taste of what Queen Bey has been stirring up. 

Ahead of tonight’s “world premiere event,” here are answers to all your burning questions regarding “Lemonade.” 

What time is Lemonade

Lemonade will debut tonight, Saturday, April 23, on HBO at 9 p.m. ET. The event is sandwiched between the pay-TV premiere of Jurassic World at 6:55 p.m. ET, and World Championship Boxing: Golovkin vs. Wade/Gonzalez vs. Arroyo at 10 p.m. ET. The premiere comes shortly ahead of Beyoncé’s upcoming “Formation” world tour, which kicks off on April 27 in Miami.  

What if I don’t have HBO?

If you aren’t a subscriber of the home box office network, you’re in luck. HBO and Cinemax jointly announced earlier this week that they will be offering everyone free access this weekend. That includes Lemonade and the previously mentioned film and boxing debuts, as well as Sunday’s HBO premieres of Game of Thrones season 6 (9 p.m. ET), Silicon Valley season 3 (10 p.m. ET), and Veep season 5 (10:30 p.m. ET). John Oliver’s new edition of Last Week Tonight will follow at 11 p.m. ET. 

What exactly is Lemonade?

While members of the Beyhive try to figure out what the full-length trailer signifies, a source told EW that “Beyoncé’s super top secret Lemonade is actually a lengthy concept video.” The singer says in the teasers, “The past and the present merge to meet us here,” while accompanying sequences reveal her wearing fur, walking away from an explosion, and smashing a security camera with a bat. 

Are there other clues?

Beyoncé may have been secretly hinting at Lemonade for a while. Some fans have pointed to photos on her Instagram from last year featuring the singer posing with a lemon. Official details have been scarce.
