Lemonade is the sixth studio album by American singer Beyoncé. It was released on April 23, 2016, by Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. It is Beyoncé’s second “visual album” following her previous eponymous 2013 album, as well as a concept album[2] accompanied upon its release by a one-hour film aired on HBO. Primarily an R&B album, Lemonade encompasses a variety of genres, including pop, reggae, blues, rock, hip hop, soul, funk, Americana, country, gospel, electronic, and trap music. The album features guest vocals from James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Jack White. The album contains samples and interpolations of a number of hip-hop and rock songs.[3]

The album was made available for online streaming on April 23, 2016 through Beyoncé’s co-owned streaming service Tidal. It was released for paid purchase the following day, and later launched for purchase by track or album to Amazon Music and the iTunes Store on April 25, and at physical retailers on May 6. The album was widely acclaimed by critics, who praised it as Beyoncé’s boldest work to date. Lemonade debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 485,000 copies in its first week (653,000 with additional album-equivalent units), and earning Beyoncé her sixth consecutive number-one album in the country. The album was supported by five singles: “Formation”, “Sorry”, “Hold Up”, “Freedom” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and “All Night”; alongside a promotional single, “Daddy Lessons” featuring Dixie Chicks. In April 2016, Beyoncé embarked on the Formation World Tour, to promote the album. It appeared on several music publications’ year-end lists, with Rolling Stone listing Lemonade at number one on its list of the “50 Best Albums of 2016″.[4] As of December 2016, Lemonade has sold 1.5 million copies in the United States, making it the country’s third-best-selling album of the year.[5] Lemonade has sold 2.5 million copies as of 2016 worldwide, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), becoming the best-selling album of that year.[6] In 2017, a box set reissue was announced, which included a vinyl edition of the album and a 600-page hardcover detailing the album’s creation.[7]

At the 59th Grammy Awards, Lemonade was nominated for nine awards, winning Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. Its leading single “Formation” received nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Music Video, while “Hold Up”, “Don’t Hurt Yourself”, and “Freedom” were nominated in pop, rock, and rap categories.
