Beyoncé just pulled a Beyoncé.
For months, the Beyhive speculated Beyoncé had plans to put forth an album film in April, dubbed Project Lemonade, and per usual, her fans proved they know their Queen all too well. In the wee hours of Friday morning, a mysterious, unlisted link surfaced on Twitter containing a zip folder of Beyonce’s latest material for FREE, a curious move considering her strong affiliation to Jay Z’s streaming service TIDAL and past Apple Music exclusives. According to the ZIP, the new album is officially titled Lemonade and includes the album film – 13 unique visuals/songs with features from Kelly Rowland and Nicki Minaj, as well behind-the-scenes footage creating the “Formation” music video and her Super Bowl performance alongside Bruno Mars and Coldplay and a “Formation” remix by Darkchild.
A press release followed shortly after said link popped up:
