The record arrives on Tidal the same night as the singer's HBO special
Sound the alarm: Beyoncé has released her next album.
Lemonade debuted exclusively on Tidal following the singer’s HBO special of the same name on Saturday night. According to the streaming service, the collection — Beyonce’s sixth record and her second visual album — is “a conceptual project based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing.” Featured artists include Jack White (“DON’T HURT YOURSELF”), The Weeknd (“6 INCH”), James Blake (“FORWARD”), and Kendrick Lamar (“FREEDOM”).
Lemonade, which features 12 songs and a corresponding short film, is Bey’s first new collection of songs since she dropped her surprise self-titled record in 2013, and its platinum version, which housed remixes and additional songs, in 2014. Beyoncé went on to sell more than 5 million copies worldwide and earn three Grammy Awards.
Anticipation for Beyoncé’s new album kicked into high gear in February, after the singer released her new song “Formation” (and its surprise music video) just days before performing at the Super Bowl halftime show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars. During the show, Beyoncé announced her “Formation” world tour, which will kick off in Miami on April 27 and run through July.
