Move over crying face, the lemon and bee emojis are snowballing into the internet’s next go-to symbol. Thanks to the release of Beyoncé’s Lemonade Saturday, the images have spiked in popularity.

Already synonymous with Beyoncé’s Beyhive, the bee has been tweeted over 1.8 million times in the month of April, with the lemon swiping over 2 million–62 percent of which have been tweeted since Saturday alone, according to Twitter.

The album itself has scooped up double the shout outs, scoring over 4.1 million tweets within 48 hours of its premiere. See a graph of the emoji surge, courtesy of Twitter, below.
