Beyoncé Fans Are Losing It Because 'Lemonade' Is Finally On Spotify
Three years to the day after its release, 'Lemonade' is finally available on Apple Music and Spotify.
Since 2016, the groundbreaking visual album has only been legally available to stream online via Tidal -- the service that includes Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Kanye West, Rihanna and Chris Martin as co-artist owners.
Beyoncé has previously made a pretty big point of not releasing Lemonade on streaming services like Spotify, as she rapped on The Carters' track "NICE" last year:
"If I gave two f***s, two f***s about streaming numbers/Would have put Lemonade up on Spotify".
Spotify wasn't too pleased that Bey was withholding the record, with the company telling Mashable in 2016 that "exclusives are bad for artists and they're bad for fans".
But now, Beyoncé fans are rejoicing that they won't have to keep topping up their Tidal membership to listen to Lemonade, treating the release as though Queen Bey dropped a brand new album.
Lemonade's wider release comes just days after Beyoncé dropped her historic Coachella 2018 set -- Homecoming-- on Netflix. The film is reportedly the first of three projects that have been bought by the streaming service as part of an $83 million dollar deal.
