Beyonce Also Releases Lemonade – April 23, 2016
Did someone call for a genre-spanning visual album that was an absolute feat of both storytelling and music? Oh yeah, Beyonce did.
While her self-titled album was certainly a moment, Lemonade had a far clearer influence on culture, with phrases like “Becky with the Good Hair,” and “I got hot sauce in my bag,” entering the collective lexicon and never quite leaving.
Oh, and it won a Peabody award, several Grammys and even inspired an entire college course. No big deal.
