Lemons to Lemonade
Have you all been served your Lemonade?
Although I’m still in the midst of celebrating the music of Prince (can’t get enough of the sirius Prince tribute channel and all the video footage postings on FB) I’m also grooving to the new music Queen Bey dropped over the weekend
With stunning visuals and powerful lyrics, Bey served us doses of feminism and social justice all while addressing the history of black women, our generations of strength in carrying our community and men and the ancestral ties that bind us. The range of emotions most women experience in a relationship were so real that I’m sure many women have found one song as their own personal anthem. While I don’t necessarily think she is speaking about cheating going on in her relationship with Jay-Z, I think they are both brilliant for making us think so while showing the softer side of their relationship throughout a sometimes imperfect situation.
I’ve been a fan of Beyonce for some time (all us Ladybirds have) its been well documented here and here. But I just love how Lemonade has really gotten some of my slow buzzing friends to come over to the beyhive….Welcome!
