Beyonce served us a freshly-squeezed treat over the weekend filled with dope visuals, a wide-range of musicality and a bit of tea with the premiere of her second surprise visual album, LEMONADE. The Queen’s sixth album is predicted to pour in good numbers…as expected.
As a member of the BeyHive, I must say the entire concept of the project is phenomenal, the execution of the presentation was superb and I’m emotionally connected to majority (if not all) of the tracks on the album and it was an overall win and it looks as though I’m not the only one who thought so.
According to HDD, first day sales projects a whopping 200k sales and predicts by the end of the week, LEMONADE will have racked in 500k-600k units possibly going Gold the first week, although there is also possibility she will exceed those numbers.
After the visual presentation aired on HBO Saturday night (which had the internet going crazy), it became exclusively available for streaming on TIDAL. The next day, purchase of the album became available on iTunes as well as Amazon. “Formation” is sitting on the #1 spot on the singles chart, while “Sorry” is #3, “Hold Up” is #4, “6 Inch” featuring The Weeknd is #5 and the Jack White-assisted “Don’t Hurt Yourself” is #9. Most of the recent of LEMONADE nabs the remainder of the Top 25.
LEMONADE also features Kendrick Lamar, James Blake, writing credit from Soulja Boy and The Dream as well as production-assistance from Diplo.
