New York (AFP) - Pop superstar Beyonce released a musically diverse new album in the form of a film as she paid a bold tribute to the perseverance of African American women.


“Lemonade” was advertised only as a special on cable network HBO but, in a move anticipated by her passionate fan base, she dropped an album by the same name in the middle of the broadcast.

The “visual-album” marks the second straight work in which the 34-year-old pop queen has experimented with merging formats – which could also include social media, where “Lemonade” quickly became a top trending topic.

The film, crafted through the album’s songs and verse from the Somali-British poet Warsan Shire against a Southern Gothic backdrop, follows Beyonce’s emotional journey as she tackles infidelity but also the larger experience of African American women.

I thought it was excellent. Watched it a few times.. completely held me. The music, the lyrics, the cinematography sewn together by the Poetry combined seamlessly into.. what I thought.. was a surprisingly honest.. and beautiful work of Art. It was really well put together. I've been over the just prancing around in a leotard concept for quite a while.. that time has passed in my opinion. It was good to see her go deeper. It also made me understand "Formation" by providing the larger context.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
