A few days ago, Beyoncé’s upcoming “Lemonade” HBO special trailer premiered.
The new clip, released on Sunday night (April 17), quickly led to #Lemonade becoming a Twitter trend. “The past and the present merge to meet us here,” the trailer begins. Throughout the trailer, Beyonce’s voice is heard asking questions like “What are you hiding?”, “Why can’t you see me?” and “What am I doing, my love?” (Billboard)
The initial 20-second teaser surfaced online last weekend.
Here’s what we do know about Lemonade: It’s premiering on Saturday, April 23 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO (no confirmation yet on whether it will also be airing on HBO Canada). Rumour has it that whatever Lemonade is, it will tie in with her upcoming new album (which fans are hoping is released prior to the start of her tour on Apr. 27). (ET Canada)
In a recent ELLE feature, Beyoncé addressed the backlash she received from law enforcement over her “Formation” music video.
“I’m an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things.” (ELLE)
