UPDATE: THE RUMORS WERE TRUE. Beyoncé dropped her visual album, Lemonade, on HBO. You can stream it now at BEYONCE.TIDAL.COM. Pretty sure you just clicked over there so nothing more to say.
Last week, Beyoncé announced the premiere day of her mysterious HBO special, Lemonade. What is it? NOBODY KNOWS. But knowing Queen Bey, it's going to be good. Catch the HBO special this Saturday, 4/23, at 9PM ET/6PM PT. [Photo: HBO]
Beyoncé likes to keep her fans guessing — and holy surfboart, she's good at it! Earlier this year, right before she was set to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, Bey dropped a brand new single (a kickass black power anthem) and an amazing music video to boot (feat. Blue Ivy!) Having released only one song from her upcoming album, Yoncé launched her Formation world tour, which will begin in, um, FIVE DAYS. No one knows what to expect... Will Bey carry hot sauce in her bag #swag? Only time will tell..
That Time She Dropped An Entire Album With No Warning
The day was December 13, the year 2013. No one saw it coming. Beyoncé's self-titled album, Beyoncé, and all the resulting music videos, were released on iTunes without an iota of notice. Nothing was ever the same.
The Baby Bump Reveal
Okay, only Beyonce would be able to get away with something like this. Instead of, you know, announcing her pregnancy like a regular person, Yonce totally buried the lead and incorporated her big news into a performance at the 2011 Video Music Awards. After delivering a characteristically flawless rendition of “Love on Top,” Beyonce opened the glittery jacket she was wearing to reveal a pronounced baby bump. Instead of then giving some commentary, “Hey y’all, I’m pregnant,” etc., Bey began stroking her belly and giggling. Seriously, how creepy would that be if it were literally anyone else? Also, damn, that’s a lot of pressure! What are they going to do if they have a second child? Air a live feed from Bey’s Lamaze class??
