Finally! Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ arrives on Spotify and Apple Music

Worth the wait.

It’s been three years since Beyonce released Lemonade, but the wait for a wider release on streaming services is finally over.

The acclaimed record has made its way to Spotify and Apple Music, after Variety  first reported the news last week.

The date marks the third anniversary of the seminal album, and the first time that Beyoncé’s entire back catalogue has been available on all major streaming services.

The visual record was the best-selling album of 2016, shifting some 2.5 million copies worldwide and picking up Grammys for best urban contemporary album and best music video.

It’s the latest in a string of huge treats for Beyonce fans, after her surprise ‘Homecoming’ live album was released last week.

The record features her entire headline show at Coachella 2018, as well as a cover of ‘Before I Let Go’, the 1981 song by Frankie Beverly and Maze which appears over the end credits of the ‘Homecoming’ documentary.

There’s also new material in ‘Before I Let Go’ – her first original release since teaming up with Jay-Z on 2018’s ‘The Carters’.

As for the documentary itself, it features footage of Beyonce preparing for her historic Coachella performance, and also offers an intimate look at Beyonce’s home life with husband Jay-Z and children Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir.

Last month, Beyoncé and her husband were honoured at the annual GLAAD Media Awards when they were presented with the Vanguard Award for “their LGBTQ allyship”. During their acceptance speech, Jay-Z paid tribute to his mother, Gloria Carter. He had previously documented her coming out on his 2017 track ‘Smile’.
