“If I gave two fucks, two fucks about streaming numbers / Would have put Lemonade up on Spotify,” Beyoncé bragged on The Carters‘ standout cut “Nice.” Now, in celebration of the three-year anniversary of Lemonade, the day has finally arrived: Lemonade is streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.
Before today, Lemonade could only be streamed exclusively on TiDAL, which is co-owned by Bey and JAY-Z. In the past, when Spotify subscribers clicked on Beyoncé’s artist page, a disclaimer read “Beyonce’s album ‘Lemonade’ is not currently available on Spotify. We are working on it and hope to have it soon.”
The full Lemonade album comes with 13 tracks, including an incredible demo version of “Sorry” and features from Jack White, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and James Blake. In 2017, Beyoncé (who was very pregnant with twins Sir and Rumi) performed a medley of Lemonade songs “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” at the 2017 Grammy Awards, where she also swept up two awards: best music video for “Formation” and best urban contemporary album for Lemonade.
Some of Lemonade‘s tracks landed on Beyoncé’s Homecoming: The Live Album, released last week on all streaming platforms in tandem with her new Netflix documentary Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, which chronicled the road to the singer’s now-iconic
Coachella Beychella performance. Beyoncé brought HBCU culture to the Coachella stage in a two-hour performance that included 38 of her hits, from early Destiny’s Child cuts to Lemonade, her most recent studio album. Beyoncé is also set to roll out two more projects with Netflix, as part of a three-project deal.
Homecoming: The Live Album is available to stream now on all platforms.
