LEMONADE is the new 6th Studio Itunes Deluxe Version Album by American singer, songwriter, record producer Beyonce which is expected to release by 24th April 2016. According to Twitter account Shady Music Facts, sources have teased more music with a collaboration with another major artist.
He Tweeted “Sources have reported Lemonade (Deluxe) is still to come and will feature a collab with another huge female artist.” The album is the follow up to the singer’s 2013 self-titled surprise album which arrived unexpectedly with a full slate of music videos and has since inspired artists to follow suit (with surprise projects save the videos.)
The Spotify competitor is also where Beyonce debuted her album’s first single, “Formation,” in February. For music industry observers, “Lemonade” is another skirmish in an ongoing, multi-front battle between artists, music labels and music services over album exclusives.
Lemonade’s 24-hour exclusivity is a relatively short window compared to Beyoncé’s peers. Rihanna’s Anti was only available on Tidal for a week after its late January release, while Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo lived exclusively on the streaming service for nearly two months before he released it to other platforms this month.
Tidal users can currently download “Lemonade” on the site for $17.99, in addition to being able to stream the album. While Beyonce might be expected to support her husband by releasing her music through his streaming service, Tidal has just 3million paying users – far less than Apple Music and Spotify.
Currently LEMONADE is a TIDAL-only exclusive, with the album rumoured to be available on iTunes as soon as midnight tonight – it will remain on TIDAL as the only streaming platform, mind. Well, we’re not exactly sure of the album’s iTunes availability, since it’s not up for sale on that particular service as of press time.
