I decided to focus on Lemonade this week. When I say Lemonade I mean Beyonce's new visual album. I'll give it to her when she does the whole visual album thing it is very creative and I love it. I love her style and she is super creative. I find her to be one of the most creative artist of all time. But U feel she went a little overboard and I'm hoping that all of her man bashing in this album was geared towards just a publicity thing. I hope her and Jay Z are strictly doing this for publicity and to gain attention towards her new album. I feel it was a bit over the top. She was doing the most. If it was real and her and Jay Z really are having issues then one day her daughter is going to be able to go back and see how her mother was putting her father on blast in the media. Yes it is entertaining and yes Beyonce is talented. And yes many women can relate to her music. But, I don't know her album still needs to grow on me. It's a bit much in my opinion

I see what you mean Alicia, but I'm not sure if I agree...I think that she is giving a voice to women with this album. And maybe its alot to take out on Jay-Z if thats what it is..but to be honest I have a few guys in the past I would like to "lemonad" if I could..haha. But that it would be an issue for her daughter in the future I don't agree with. I think there might be a bigger problem for her dad explaining some of his lyrics, regarding bitches and what to do to them.

Beyonce Lemonade is a good album. I really like how she drops your art as a surprise to the masses and let the fans soak up what she put out. I personally do not care much for the speculations on if it is about her and Jay-z or her and her father, however it seems to be a relate-able topic and has sparked some issues with the Bee Hive. The tour seems to be doing well as well as the marriage between B and Jay-z. I think the feature of Serena Williams in track four “Sorry” was awesome and super unexpected. What does Lemonade mean to you guys? I think this album will do great this year.

Lemonade was a really good album. I do see where you are coming from Alicia, but it did catch us all as a surprise. I want to think it was just something related to the what women go through and not just putting Jay-Z on blast like that. Her album was a great way for women that have gone through that to relate to Beyonces music. It may not be a problem for her daughter because maybe by that time she will understand why her mom decided to do an album like that.

My friend told to me, the music has an old style feeling, specially the video. So I read your Forum. You give me lots of information about it. I am interesting that the music has a cold and cool style. I live in LA, the temperature is hot. So far, make me cool feeling. LOL. The music of background is about black women power. And lets me feeling that would be more and more women are interesting in America. Because the movie has complicated emotion and things.
