If you’ve ever had a doubt about Beyonce’s artistic ability and position in the music industry, #LEMONADE is here to help. Tonight, Beyonce released her highly anticipated HBO Special Lemonade and she didn’t disappoint. This full on experience takes us through some of her most intimate moments, something that we aren’t use to seeing. With the use of powerful spoken word and dark vivid visuals she illustrates a story. A story that many, including myself, can relate to. Life gave her lemons, and she served us the best lemonade I’ve ever tasted. She is unapologetic about being a proud black women who goes through different emotions just like the rest of us. She shows us the silver lining between vulnerability and power and the fine line between love and hate all at the same damn time. This is more than just an album and HBO special, it is a celebration of her culture, love, and women all around the world. Throughout the years Beyonce has served as inspiration for myself and many others, and this art piece was nothing short of that. Safe to say, there are no passengers on her plane. Congratulations Beyonce, you have done it again.
Let us not forget to mention her choice of wardrobe throughout the entire special (I am a fashion student after all). Below are some of my favorite moments from Queen Bey’s #LEMONADE!
