It’s a “visual album” featuring 12 tracks, and was premiered on HBO last night as a 60-minute short film.

James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Jack White all make guest appearances on the record. She also samples tracks by Led Zeppelin, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs,  Collective, and Outkast, while Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend) and Father John Misty have writers credits on “Hold Up”.

“Formation”, Bey’s explosive single from earlier this year, makes an appearance on the album.

LEMONADE is out now exclusively via Tidal. It follows her surprise-released 2013 LP, Beyoncé, which was also an audio/visual project.
