Never fear, Beyonce fans: Her new album, ‘Lemonade,’ will be available on iTunes before you know it! After Queen B dropped her surprise album on April 23, fans are dying to know when they can have a copy of their own. Find out when you can buy ‘Lemonade’ right here!
Beyonce has the Beyhive buzzing over her new album, Lemonade, and not just because some songs seemingly call out Jay Z for cheating with Rachel Roy! Although Yonce, 34, released the album on April 23, it was only immediately streamable on Tidal and fans couldn’t even buy it yet. But that’s all about to change! So when will you be able to buy Lemonade?
Drum roll please…Lemonade is expected to be available on iTunes at midnight on April 24, RIGHT HERE! Yep, hardly even 24 hours after Beyonce put her new album on Tidal, it will be ready for the whole world to purchase on Apple’s music store. Although there is no official confirmation about the iTunes release, the New York Times reported that two people who were briefed on the album release plans hinted at it. Apple apparently declined to comment to the outlet, and a rep for Beyonce didn’t immediately respond to NYT‘s request. But hey, we’ll still be checking iTunes right at midnight!
Along with iTunes, Amazon is expected to start selling both digital and physical copies of Lemonade in the near future. If you are a Tidal subscriber, though, you have the luxury of streaming Bey’s new album, as well as purchasing a digital copy of it for $17.99, the service announced the afternoon of April 24.
Even if you haven’t had the chance to listen to Lemonade or watch Beyonce’s hour-long HBO special — which you can access right here — surely you’ve heard about the drama that is already surrounding Bey’s latest record! In her song “Sorry,” Beyonce doesn’t just call out a certain someone (ahem, Jay Z) for cheating…she seemingly calls out his reported mistress, Rachel Roy, too!
After singing about a man’s lame apology for cheating, Beyonce closes the song with the line, “He better call Becky with the good hair.” This is supposedly an indirect shot at Rachel, whom allegedly had an affair with Jay Z and caused that not-so-private elevator attack on Jay by Bey’s little sis Solange back in 2014. Once the Beyhive figured out who Bey was referring to, they immediately attacked Rachel — and suddenly the affair drama is more prevalent than ever! We’re thinking Rachel definitely won’t be buying Lemonade once it hits iTunes, but we sure will!
