Beyonce‘s unprecedented release of her “Lemonade” album AND her “Lemonade” film on HBO, has actually solidified that this bona-fide diva is a “Black Bill Gates in the making” to be reckoned with. Period. End of story.
With a total of 13 tracks and 111 minutes, it is very clear and evident that Queen B ain’t playing no games or wasting any time. In fact, she rises to a league of her very own, where the only competition that exists, is herself; a true testament of a true Artist and creative visionary.
The “Lemonade” project, demonstrates Beyoncè‘s keen and natural ability to go over and beyond the call of duty to ensure that she does not short hand the people responsible for her success, her fans. And not only is she giving her fans an entire album, she is stretching as an artist and chartering into the new territory of visual albums as well, providing an incentive for people to grow and soar to new heights with her.
Yes, the music is supremely rich in subject, cinematography, creative direction, cameos (Serena Williams, Winnie Harlow, etc.), features (Kendrick Lamar, James Blake, etc.), Texas home-grown cultural influences as well as controversial commentary that addresses social ills within our American society. However, what tends to wow me more is how Beyoncè consistently challenges the way we consume and experience music with calculation. And quite frankly, she is an expert on productive disruption, doing whatever the hell she wants to do, however she wants to do it. Just the way we like it hear at the heART of Cool (HoC).
So check out a visual musical narrative and poetry about femininity and sacrificial love against all odds and at all costs. Sit back and allow your mind to creatively wonder through the various stages that love takes you through: Intuition, Anger, Apathy, Emptiness, Accountability, Reformation, Forgiveness, Resurrection, Hope and Redemption. And pay homage to this ode to black women all across the globe inspired by the personal account of one special, loving, powerful and free black woman, Beyoncè.
One thing that is for sure, Beyoncè will keep running the world because “a winner don’t quit on themselves.” The saga of brilliance, healing, power and love will continue with this bright star, Beyoncè.
💜Love & Light🌞,
