The best-selling album of 2016 has finally made its way to Spotify and Apple Music—just in time for its third birthday.
Beyoncé‘s sixth studio, Lemonade, made its debut on Tidal on April 23, 2016 and was met with widespread acclaim from critics worldwide. It was named one of the best albums of the year by countless publications and featured collaborations with The Weeknd, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, and Jack White. For the first time, fans can stream Lemonade on Spotify and Apple Music. Before April 23, 2019, the album had only been available to stream on Tidal and for purchase through retailers.
2019 has already been a big year for Beyoncé, who just released her Homecoming documentary on Netflix and a corresponding live album. She’s also set to voice Nala in the upcoming Lion King remake, out this July.
Beyonce further cemented her status as America’s Queen when she dropped her surprise album titled Lemonade in 2016. The album went on to win a Grammy for the Best Urban Contemporary Album, while earning another win for Best Music Video for her track “Formation.” The album was a stunning success, so die-hard Beyonce fans have yet another Beyonce-special to celebrate as it was recently announced that Beyonce will be releasing a limited edition Vinyl box set of Lemonade.
The set will contain a double vinyl LP as well as audio and visual album downloads. The album itself was released alongside a 60-minute HBO film also titled Lemonade, so it is only fitting for her vinyl release to have visual components as well. Lastly, the set will come with a 600 page coffee table book titled How To Make Lemonade.
How To Make Lemonade features behind-the-scenes photos from the making of the album as well as notes, poems and essays from the artist. Its forward is written by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, with additional poetry by Warsan Shire. Fans can pre-order the limited edition set on Beyonce’s website starting at $299.99.
