This week marked the one year anniversary since Beyoncé’s now-iconic album Lemonade was released. Beyoncé radically changed the game with the visual album release and it marked her sixth number one album. Plus, all 12 of the album's songs made the US Top 100, breaking the US chart record. So, you know, it was kind of a big deal.
And now, one year on, Beyoncé, who is pregnant with twins, is celebrating by releasing a collector's box set version of the album which is now available for pre-sale on her website. Titled, "How To Make Lemonade", each made-to-order box contains the first pressing of the double LP vinyl, both audio and visual content and a numbered 600-page coffee table book. The book includes poetry by Warsan Shire, as well as never-seen-before photos taken when Bey was recording Lemonade and notes from the singer herself.
Coming in at just over Dhs1,100, it's definitely an investment but somehow we think the Beyhive will snap it up regardless.
The collector's release is the second way Bey has celebrated Lemonade's anniversary - the first was the announcement of her new scholarship program, Formation Scholars, to help "encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, conscious and confident."
Is Bey 2020 a thing yet? We think it should be.
