Beyonce Rules the World with Release of ‘Lemonade’ Trailer

If anyone knows how to captivate the world’s attention it has to be Queen Bey. The doting mother of Blue Ivy – natural curls and all – has been plotting her latest and greatest and as always – the big reveal is supported by drippings of achingly torturous clues to keep fans salivating and panting for more.


First it was the seconds long teaser that introduced us to the weirdly delicious world of Lemonade. Nothing really to clue us into what this mysterious new habitat possibly harbors. Until now.

Now, we know that this project is yet another collaboration between Beyonce and HBO and based on the trailer that made its much appreciated debut Sunday night – we have some idea what to expect when the actual gift unwraps a week from now.

As the trailer circulates along the media landscape – most of have categorized their reaction to it with references to American Horror Story due to the dark and jarringly methodical themes.

Beyonce is seen rocking some solidly golden cornrows that extend down the back of her impressively wild fur coat. She seems to have a score to settle with someone or something. We know this from the echoing phrases that she utters with substance. Stuff like, “Why can’t you see me?”, “What are you hiding?”, and “What am I doing, my love?”

So many questions, so little time to decipher the code that unveils why we care so much about what all this delicious chaos means.

Luckily we don’t have to wait too long since the “World Premiere Event” of Beyonce’s Lemonade will debut on HBO this Saturday, April 23 at 9 p.m. ET.

In the meantime, check out the extended trailer below:
