Report: Beyonce To Release Audio Of ‘Lemonade’ Film To All Streaming Platforms
Beyonce is serving more Lemonade.
The audio of the pop star’s Lemonade film will be released across all music streaming services on Tuesday, April 23, as Variety exclusively reports.
The release will mark the third anniversary of the 65-minute film’s debut on HBO. It’s also the first time that the Houston singer’s entire catalog will be available for streaming.
The poetry penned by Somali poet Warsan Shire and the Malcolm X speeches that are sampled in Beyonce’s film will also be included in the new audio release.
When Lemonade was initially released it was available exclusively on Tidal, which is co-owned by Bey and her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
Lemonade, the album, was the best-selling album of 2016, selling 2.5 million copies worldwide. The album also garnered Yonce two Grammys for best urban contemporary album and best music video.
This news comes on the heels of Beyonce’s Netflix premiere of Homecoming, a Beyonce-directed documentary that chronicles her iconic “Beychella” performance. The pop star headlined Coachella in 2018, paying homage to historically black colleges and universities.
Early this morning (Apr. 17), the singer surprisingly dropped a live album, Homecoming: The Album, to coincide with the premiere of the documentary.
Beyonce doesn’t seem to be slowing down. She also returns to the silver screen this summer, voicing Nala in Disney’s remake of The Lion King. The film hits theaters on Jul. 19.
