Beyoncé’s sixth studio album “Lemonade” is now available to buy on iTunes for $17.99. The album itself is a “conceptual project based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing” and no less bracing in its approach than the associated film on HBO. “Suck on my balls, I’ve had enough,” she sings on “Sorry,” shortly before threatening to leave and take their daughter with her.
The album was released this weekend as a streaming-exclusive for Tidal, but it was made available for download on to buy on iTunes early this morning. Many fans listening to her songs on Spotify are still confused and angry, because “Lemonade” isn’t available on the popular music service and they don’t wanna switch to another service just for a couple of songs.
But, is “Lemonade” even worth listening to? “Beyonce sounds genuinely imperious,” Alexis Petridis writes for The Guardian. “Rihanna’s ‘Anti’ and Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ were at best a bold and intriguing mess: the sense that the artists behind them were having trouble marshalling their ideas was hard to escape. ‘Lemonade’, however, feels like a success, made by someone in control.”
