Beyonce + Lemonade +YouTube are definitely the three words we never thought we’d be putting together. As we all know, April saw one of the biggest album drops of the year and of course, it came in the form of Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’. B, being the Queen that she is, released her hour long visual album/ dig at Jay Z on HBO and until now we’ve only been able to get hold of it via iTunes and her husbands music streaming service, Tidal. However, yesterday (Wednesday, 22 June) saw YouTube being graced over night by Queen B’s most popular Lemonade hit, ‘Sorry’.
The song featuring the ‘he better call Becky with the good hair’ lyric, that fronted all of the Jay Z divorce drama, is now available to watch on YouTube. The video is a essentially a four minute clip from her hour long musical treat and it features an extremely #GirlPower cameo in the form of tennis player, Serena Williams.
Williams, who recently told WSJ Magazine that she’s “known Bey for a long time”, spends those four minutes dancing through the halls of Beyonce’s mansion because honestly, why would you want to do anything else? Of course, as ‘Sorry’ is blatently pointing the finger at Jay Z’s alleged unfaithfulness, Bey is looking as sassy as ever in the black and white shot video, throwing shade at wherever the camera is pointing.
We think that Beyonce’s choice to debut her hit single on the video sharing platform is an extremely smart one. As we all know YouTube is the place to go for absolutely anything on the Internet and having her music on their can only be a good thing. The only thing we can hope for now is that this is just the first of many ‘Lemonade’ hits to make their debut on YouTube, we will have to wait and see. In the meantime, let us know what you think of the video in the comments.
