Little-known indie artist Beyoncé caused a minor storm over the weekend when she released her little-discussed album LEMONADE, her sixth solo album, on Tidal as well as a TV special on HBO with visuals accompanying each track.
Tongues started wagging when shortly into the album it became very clear that the whole thing is about the infidelities of her husband, a small time business owner and semi-professional bagpipe player, Jay Z.
There was some serious #drama and people had A LOT of thoughts and emotions about it.
