Three years after its Tidal-exclusive release, Beyonce’s album “Lemonade” will be on all streaming services, Variety reported Wednesday.
The audio of the musician’s 55-minute visual album, which premiered on HBO in 2016, will be released on streaming services April 23. It will include Beyonce reciting poetry written by Warsan Shire, just as she does in the visual.
Until now, fans who wanted to listen to “Hold Up,” “6 Inch,” “Daddy Lessons,” “Freedom” and other songs on the record had to sign up for Tidal, co-owned by Beyonce, or buy a copy of the album on CD or vinyl. Now, fans will have Beyonce’s entire music catalog available for streaming.
Since its release, “Lemonade” has sold more than 2.3 million copies, according to Variety. Beyonce embarked on the sold-out Formation World Tour in support of the Grammy- and Peabody Award-winning record.
The news comes after Beyonce released a 40-song live album called “Homecoming,” which mostly contains material from her two-hour headlining set at 2018 Coachella. The album release followed the premiere of Beyonce’s “Homecoming” documentary on Netflix.
