If you didn’t catch the premiere of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade on HBO, you might still be wondering exactly where the meaning behind the project came from.
In the one-hour short film, the song lyrics in the new material initially takes viewers on a journey through the mind of a devoted wife who is fed up with her husband’s indiscretions and frustrated after doing everything she can to get through their issues to no avail.
Each song captures a different feeling.
From calming lyrics like “I can taste the dishonesty, it’s all over your breath,” to raw ones like, “How did it come down to this? Scrolling throughout your call list? I don’t wanna lose my pride but, I’mma f**k me up a b***h,”
Bey covers just about every emotion you go through when your relationship hits a rough patch.
As this realization is made, there’s a scene in film that features Jay Z’s grandmother Hattie as she addresses party goers at her 90th birthday.
