Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, the world will be a better place.

I am not usually a fan of Beyonce's solo music, but I surprised myself by being thoroughly impressed with this album. She has a little bit of everything here, from acoustic tunes to ballads, and it's obvious that a lot of work was put into fine-tuning this collection. There are practically dissertations written all over the place about the visual album especially, so I'll leave that be. Musical genres all mix and flicker back and forth through this album. It makes it quite easy for anyone to listen and find at least one tune to enjoy.
