Fresh off the success of her Netflix 'Homecoming' special, which aired on Wednesday, Beyonce will finally release her Lemonade album on all music streaming platforms next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lemonade is a 65-minute documentary featuring feminist, Black Lives Matter, inclusive music by the mother-of-3. The release of the Lemonade audio coincides with the 3rd anniversary of the film's debut on HBO.

A few of the songs dealt with the anguish and pain Beyonce felt when she finally accepted the reality that her husband, rap icon Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter was cheating on her.

In one scene from the excellent Lemonade visual, Beyonce bashed out car windows while flames erupted behind her. Better the car windows than Jay-Z's head.

Millions of women identified with Beyonce as she sang from the heart about breaking up with her man and taking him back for the 3rd or 4th time.

Lemonade takes the viewer on a tortuous journey from anger and denial to acceptance, healing and joy.

Beyonce teaches the viewer that accepting most men are cheaters is the final step in the healing process.

Few singers can express their feelings and emotions without unnecessary theatrics like Beyonce can. Give her a microphone and an empty stage and she makes magic happen.

Lemonade is broken up into 11 different chapters, each featuring scenes from Beyonce's life as a submissive wife, and a mother who transitioned from using a surrogate to deliver daughter Blue Ivy to risking her own life to birth her IVF twins, Rumi and Sir Carter.

Netflix's "Beyonce Homecoming" is accompanied by a live album that features 40 songs from Beyonce's performances at last year's Coachella festival, complete with candid footage and interviews.

    Im actually watching homecoming on Netflix right now. I am NOT a Bey fan I am a Jay FANATIC I love him! Beyonce is a helluva performer. she's good

  • Renee26

    She still sprinkled enough shade in the write up to let us know she still feels the same

  • luVn_liFe…

    funny.. Beyonce talked about how she trimmed down.. I just started no alcohol,no sweets, no meat.. been eating steamed veggies,quinoa, avocados,asparagus,boiled eggs for two days and been in the gym.

    IM HUNGRY

  • JesusSidePeace

    Yes!!! Talk ya sh#t

  • Renee26

    Keep up the good work! It will pay off soon

  • luVn_liFe…

    I know it will, Im just going to do 10 days off ten days on. I just want to see a little more tone/cuts in my body. Nothing crazy just a smidge of change :)

  • Applebum

    Beyonce is like stale potato chips..left outside for too long.

    Same tired ass songs. Same staged “candid” footage. Throw in random short video of babies, holding babies, Jay-Z fake smiling and looking into space. ?

  • luVn_liFe…

    it matters none, people her fans and the hive LUV her.

    Everyone have a wonderful weekend enjoy ..... bye ! ?

  • Yardgirl

    You too Jenie!!

  • Reina1718

    I always look forward to the way u present ur stories! Lol

  • What???

    Most men are "cheaters" because one woman can't satisfy a man. That's just a fact of life. Every man needs at least two women. Period.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Bey and these performers/students in homecoming are dancing machines!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Well, today’s music (or the lack thereof) and being a superstar requires generating and keeping a buzz coming! “SHE DID THAT!”

    Smart move, recycling while supporting and promoting black culture!

    But, most of all herself, and fans are loving it! She let Coachella and Netflix pick up the cost, she’s no dummie! And, might get an Emmy or Oscar nom and win, definitely a Grammy!

    It’s sad that there’s only one other on her level, Rihanna. Alicia Keys traded in her career for her husband! H.E.R. and Ella Mai didn’t receive the “machine treatment!”

  • dblogged

    Who cares about her. May she too disappear to a remote island

    Right! That's Bey ALL day..........lol

    Whewww chilllld!! Old music!! GTFOH greedy!! Jay is the only ni$$a that can cheat on his WIFE with so call GG girlfriend (Gwyneth P??) with discretion and publicly say he cheated and he gets away with public ridicule because of beyonce. And she accepts the BS! Sad and pathetic! Smdh she should had left him!!!

  • Coy little wink

    I don't think he even cheated. It was all marketing strategy...

    They laughed all the way to the bank.

  • xenaD

    How would she get a granny for this.. she lost that to Adele a while back. Maybe if she releases new music but idk about this “live album” but then again I really have no clue wat I’m babbling on about. K. Bye now ?

  • Coy little wink

    Rihanna is not a performer. She barely moves on stage...I doubt she breaks a sweat...

    Ella Mai needs to slim down and get some stage presence.

    Alicia needs to stay behind the piano...she's not a performer either...

  • KcoolMuziq

    "Lemonade" was released on the weekend of Prince's(r.i.p.) death which was TOTALLY disrespectful of his memory. But Bey later voiced her regret so I'll forgive her for now,

    This!! I've never believed Jay cheated on Bey either. They both played on people's emotions for profit and it worked. Very good strategy indeed.

  • KcoolMuziq

    So folks can't buy/release music AND remember Prince at the same time? NO!!

    Do you keep that same energy for ALL artist that have transitioned and others have released music on their anniversary? NO!!

    Did she really need YOU to forgive her? She forgave JAY-Z & he's part of Prince's(r.i.p.) legacy.

    I agree - he never cheated. Their body language around each other is pure love.

  • what?why

    Her babies are beautiful but Blue is the utmost. Er, most men are not cheaters.

  • Kylla Williams

    they meant on the same level success wise.

  • Kylla Williams

    yup and thats how she keeps everyone hanging on. using her privacy as promotion. she wont post nothing on instagram but pay for a cd or a 500 ticket to a concert and u get the staged "candid" images. along with all the pda that they usually try hiding. been peeped that

  • Candie P

    I rather be the one to have my Fans and "Haters" Pay to see my life and personal business rather than display it for free to be picked apart on Social Media like Cardi B, Tamar Braxton and others. Smart girl I would say.

  • Haley C

    Uhm he definitely cheated and has been for years (it wasn’t just 3 or 4 times) and I know this because my cousins friend used to date him while him and Beyonce were together. But their whole relationship is a marketing strategy. I don’t believe she really forgave him but their brand is better together than apart ?????

  • luVn_liFe…

    whats the keto diet?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Whoooooooa! Can I please ask are you a man or woman stating this?

    I believe that most are cheaters but not all are cheaters. Also, one woman can satisfy a man.

  • JesusSidePeace

    Low carb, high fat. I started noticing my weight drop within 1 week.

  • Luvn_it

    Tiger Woods wife is not the first woman to bust the windows out of a man's car. So she didn't originate the idea either.

  • luVn_liFe…

    that will be my next month experiment.

  • Coy little wink

    So your cousins friend is Becky with the good hair? Did you see them with your eyes or hear with your ears? Otherwise that is hearsay...

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I meant status, not live performance level! Beyonce has the performance thing on lock, there are no other contenders!

    Jill Scott is about the best true vocalist, “He loves Me” Choral did that!

    Alicia Keys is great behind the piano like you said, her background singers and harmonies made her greatest hits! But her lyrics/songwriting, also took her to the top!

    Rihanna has made great music in the studio, hits that weren’t given to her because she was quite disliked until her numbers 1s singles wouldn’t stop! Outside of singing, her fashion game is uniquely hers!

    Each brings an A-Game in their own way, and we need more, new ones!

    “The Machine” can groom and position anyone, look at today’s new popstars Halsey or Alesia Cara or “The Kardashians!”

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ??

  • JesusSidePeace

    Ok. Let me know how it goes or if you need tips

  • What???

    One woman can satisfy a man in some ways TEMPORARILY but she cannot tame his TRUE desire to have multiple women permanently. Politics and shaming doesn’t change a man’s nature, only their resentment where men hide (cheat) their nature in order to EXPRESS their true nature.

  • Missy

    Right..just ask Jazmine Sullivan.

    Yes, he’s crazy, he/she/it worships living/dead celebrities. I’m a huge fan of Prince also.

  • Khaliah

    Even though you threw a few lugs in there, Auntie, you were kind of civil to Bey. I'm impressed! Is this a kinder, gentler auntie? There was a time you wouldn't have spit on her if she was on fire, and you're playing so nice right now. It was hilarious how you used to call her all those different kinds of singers: saloon singer, liquor store corner singer, dollar store singer, laundrymat singer, gas station singer, homeless encampment singer, outhouse singer, burger stand singer, morgue singer, train track singer, sewing machine Singer--I mean, Bey had been singing in every kind of environment and situation you could imagine to let you tell it, and it just kept going down and down and getting worse and worse with each new post. Didn't you call her a nursery singer just this week? And now you're so kindhearted. That's really makes my Friday.

  • Reina1718

  • Dasright

    Him "admitting" it is all part of their strategy. They knew the whole "cheating", album about said cheating, and the subsequent makeup tour would rake in the dough, and it did. This chick is notoriously private..we still don't know why Solange drop kicked his behind in the elevator.

  • dru and neil

    It’s because that Homecoming performance cannot be denied! It was the truth!

  • Taj

    She don't! That's why she's only releasing Lemonade to streaming services YEARS later. She already got the coin from it's initial release on Tidal. Streaming doesn't pay ish to artists so she's just doing this as a favor to her fans.

    LOL, everytime I'd read those different kinds of singers she was, I'd crack up, waiting to see what you would come up with next. I was making up some myself: toilet bowl singer, dog park singer, bus stop singer, subterannean subway singer (that place 5,000 feet under the subway in New York, where a lot of people live) landfill singer, under-the-freeway-overpass singer, Titanic sinking singer.

    Rihanna is off having fun and making money STILL. !!!PLEASE STOP!!!

  • B.Loveitt

    Matt kept her quite for so long so she could climb the ladder. Now she speaks out. Let's be truthful people hate this woman even when she's not doing anything she's just over in her corner and she post a pic on IG. For a long time people didn't even know Whitney Houston cursed or smoke cigarettes. Clyde even made her re-do songs,
    too soulful. Beyonce is saying a and doing what she couldn't. She even had to learn how to tell her daddy NO once she became a A lister. She didn't fire him for just cheating on Tina he's always done that but also because he would book her for events she didn't want to do. She wanted to play on a boat and play with Jay. Nobody's going the way of Cardi all she talks about is her ? and the smell of it on some man's breath while pulling a B. Cosby.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Or what ?

  • What???

    You see what I’m saying but you don’t have the strength to accept it or else you wouldn’t ask me those follow up questions. U care more about shaming tactics than getting the best out of a man.

  • Hair Lova ??

    Bruh. I really tried. So I watched it. And then I got tired. And so I paused it. Only to see that I watch about a half hour worth. I swear it seemed like I watched at least 2hrs worth.

    I just can’t. And then when that voice of hers changed. I got nervous. I’m good.

  • LYRICS

    Meh.....that's how I've ALWAYS felt about her. She seems to be like her momma, the "He loves me, I'm his wife, this is marriage, I accept it, we can fit it" type......which is cool until their in divorce court and there's a Netflix memoirs special. Maybe that's why "Lemonade" never appealed to me??

  • LYRICS

    "A" for effort, I didn't even bother! Not even 4/20 could put me in the head space to watch it! ?

    She and Jay will also ride out the upcoming "Lion King" remake as well.

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    No one is hating on Beyonce at all. Her father taught her a lot about the music business (including the publishing rights trick of adding her name to songs [even if she wrote just one word] to continue making money off royalties), so don't discount his impact. She then got with Jay-Z at 16, 17, or 18 and he helped her over time in addition to his type of lyrical content/impact. As for Whitney Houston, she was truly a standout singer who's voice never needed the whole stage entourage to have a great show. Unfortunately, drugs pulled her in and any of us who's had people close to us get involved in that know how devastating addiction can be! Beyonce may be raking in the money because the music industry wants our "superstars" to normalize the use of the n-word and other nonsense (and she's happily obliging) but she needs to "level up" instead of, again, heading down to the Cardi B raunchy lane.

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    Real talk!!

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    Yep, don't even bother!

  • Wayup!

    ??

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    Yep, "meh" too! I'll give her credit though for acknowledging that if her "country ass" [her words exactly] can get as far as she's gotten then it can happen to anyone if they dream big. Wouldn't look at this special twice, that's for sure.

  • http://meetup-date.website/2KYTpNCuds Banana
  • B.Loveitt

    This song was released in 2016 and it's almost 2020. She knew how to curse well before Jay.

    Not sure what you read but I DIDN'T discount Matt I specifically said he was trying get her up the industry ladder and he did! I said PEOPLE not YOU but PEOPLE hate her even when she's over in HER CORNER.

    Whitney eventually let LOOSE, her and Bey have some parallels. She too was publicly scorned. This almost 5 yr. old song were emotional moments for her. She really is a HUMAN BEING. Nippy dealt w/hers differenly which was part of her own demise.
    Dosen't matter if you have her balls in your mouth or not. But to say she's going to be another Cardi is simply silly. I don't even ? Bey like that but damn give a bytch a break, even Auntie did.

    And don't you send the "Potty Mouth" police after me either!

    Enjoy your holiday...

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    Enjoy your holiday as well! The song may have been released in 2016 but she's been with Jay since her teens (he was at least 30), so he's had a major impact on her just as her dad has. Anyhow, I don't know these people, they don't know me so my only concern is what our youth are being programmed to normalize by the media/music industry. The manipulation of our artists is so clear to me and what we can do about is my focus.

    Either way, we can agree to disagree on certain issues. Thanks for the interaction!

    I didn’t say anything about cheating but it sounds like you can’t handle the fact that you can’t be a man’s sexual everything. That’s not my pill to swallow, take it as you can.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    No you’re just evil you want women to believe that they don’t have a good man that’s bad that you had that thinking I was just trying to see why do you have that thinking.Also if you saying you didn’t say nothing about cheating you still basically did Because you say one woman cannot for fill a man
