Beyoncé shakes things up again with the release of her album ‘Lemonade’ on Tidal No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
On Saturday, the megastar debuted material from her eagerly anticipated sixth album via “Lemonade,” an hour-long concept musical film that debuted exclusively on HBO, just a week after she announced the event with a cryptic teaser that revealed little except the film’s title.
And before the special was over, she dropped the album, also titled “Lemonade,” directly to streaming service Tidal.
The 12-track record includes guest appearances from Jack White, the Weeknd, James Blake and Kendrick Lamar.
With the release of Lemonade last month, Beyoncé seemingly acknowledged that her marriage to Jay Z isn’t as picture-perfect as it seems.
Much like the lyrics of Beyoncé’s 2013 song “Jealous,” Lemonade alludes to infidelity.
Everyone was eager to identify “Becky with the good hair”—and it seems like all that chatter was reflected in album sales. Lemonade debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, making it the sixth of her six studio albums to do just that. Per Billboard, she is the only artist to reach No. 1 with all of her first six studio efforts.
