Beyonce broke the internet when she released Lemonade, a visual album accompanied by a one-hour film where she tackled themes like infidelity and revenge. Upon its release, critics praised it as the singer’s boldest work to date, and was nominated for nine Grammys.
The name Lemonade was inspired by her grandmother and Jay-Z’s grandmother. At the end of the song “Freedom,” Jay-Z’s grandmother was heard saying: “I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.”
Now, fans can now learn how to make lemonade.
Beyonce is releasing a box set of the album, which includes double vinyls, audio and video downloads, and a 600-page collector’s edition coffee table book. The book, titled How to Make Lemonade, explores exclusive photos, themes and inspiration, personal notes and lyrics, an introduction by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson (a Sociology professor who wrote and edited books on Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Marvin Gaye, Tupac Shakur, and more), and poetry from Warsan Shire.
Beyonce sure can teach you, but she has to charge: each box set costs $299.99 (roughly P14,999.50). The box set is made to order and set to ship in a few months.
