Beyoncé Slays Us With Surprise Sixth Album And Short Film

She slayed us by surprise ... again. This time it was in an hourlong assault on the senses. Beyoncé aired an HBO special with brand new music and completely new visuals. And then just a minute later dropped "Lemonade" — a full sixth solo studio album on her husband's streaming service Tidal.
The new album features Jack White, The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar and is the singer's most personal to date. And the visuals stick to the expected cultural commentary we saw in her shock single "Formation." The album itself boasts 12 tracks — hailed as an artistic blend of R&B, rock and even some country.
And, it's released just in time for the BeyHive to see it live. Shortly after she performed "Formation" during the Super Bowl halftime show, Beyoncé announced a world tour going by the same name. That kicks off April 27.
