What's the T? Beyoncé is releasing a new video/visual album/musical/Carmen: a Hip Hopera Reimagination called ‘Lemonade', which is said to have been shot over 50 days in Louisiana starting in November 2015, employing 300 people. Modern lore has it that the finished product will only be delivered to HBO the day of the premiere.
Early Beyhive intelligence appointed FKA Twigs, Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus collaborator Kahlil Joseph to be the director of 'Project Lemonade' way back in February, but we all know Blue Ivy DOP'ed, directed and mastered this thing. Since the Formation Tour starts next week, it will most likely contain new tracks or will be an entire album but this should not be depended upon. It will air at 9PM (New York Time) April 23rd on HBO, which is conveniently allowing for a free preview weekend. If you’re outside of U.S. and consequently HBO territory like us however, without breaking the law, you’ll be more like: "Someone is going to Periscope this, right?"
What is lemonade? Clinical studies have shown that lemonade should be some sort of aqueous, lemon-infused beverage but how can that still be after this weekend? What brave new definition are we gearing up for? What new pronunciation? Will it be a staccato 'lemo-lemo-lemonade' or a howling ‘lemonaaaaaade’? Or will the word not even be mentioned?
