Ultimately, Lemonade cements Beyoncé as an essential voice -- not just an entertainer.

Yet unlike the slick scenes that accompanied 2013's Beyoncé, which found her shifting through an array of glamorous and hopelessly unreal dioramas, Lemonade is freighted with meaning.

Technically, it is a visual album (her second, and the follow-up to 2013's Beyoncé), though "visual album" is hardly an adequate description. Lemonade is a film - the most exciting film of 2016 so far.

What begins as a tale of marital infidelity and reconciliation reveals itself to be a pointedly political, aestheticised expression of black resistance.

Not a movie in the traditional sense. However, Beyonce's long-form video released to help promote her new album "Lemonade" was just about the most intoxicating piece of cinema released in 2016.

Audience Reviews for Lemonade


It looks gorgeous and the music is great, but the best thing in this conceptual "visual album" is seeing how Beyoncé reveals so much about herself in such an experimental, artistic way, even if sometimes it seems like she is throwing a lot of different elements of her life together.
