Beyonce Made Lemonade Out Of A Melting Pot Of Soul In Romantic Depth, History, For An Eternal Empowered Snapshot Visual.
Beyonce stuck the world with her second (considerably third) visual album Lemonade initially on HBO in on of the most conceptually sound musical visuals I think I’ve ever seen, accompanying its Tidal streaming digital release. I was so specific about everything having to take a back seat that day and had my food and snacks all ready to go because I knew it was going to be such an exciting history creating moment. The album Lemonade touched many different styles of music including hip-hop, rock, soul, blues, funk, electronic, trap, and a few others along with R&B. As Lemonade shifts from one song to the next the visual shifts so tastefully with Beyonce using poetry adapted from a variety of very powerful poems by Warsan Shire that included “The Unbearable Weight of Staying”, “For Women Who Are Difficult to Love”, “How to Wear Your Mother’s Lipstick”, “Dear Moon”, and “Nail Technician as Palm Reader”. The way that Beyonce keeps you drawn into visuals through the reciting of poetry throughout the visual album Lemonade was completely genius, captivating, and truly added even more audible value to it. Beyonce broke down the visual into eleven sections called “Intuition”, “Denial”, “Anger”, “Apathy”, “Emptiness”, “Accountability”, “Reformation”, “Forgiveness”, “Resurrection”, “Hope”, and “Redemption” and you really feel the distinct differences between each and every single one of these chapters.
