Lemonade is Beyoncé's sixth studio album, originally released on April 23, 2016. The set includes the first pressing of the 180-gram, yellow, four-sided vinyl, allowing for a higher sound quality.
Lemonade encompasses a variety of genres, including pop, reggae, blues, rock, hip hop, soul, funk, Americana, country, gospel, electronic, and trap. The album features guest vocals from James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Jack White.
The record was widely acclaimed by critics, who praised it as Beyoncé's boldest work to date. Lemonade debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling 485,000 copies in its first week (653,000 with additional album-equivalent units), and earning Beyoncé her sixth consecutive number-one album in the country. The album was supported by five singles: "Formation," "Sorry," "Hold Up," "Freedom," featuring Kendrick Lamar, and "All Night"; alongside a promotional single, "Daddy Lessons" featuring Dixie Chicks.
At the 59th Grammy Awards, Lemonade was nominated for nine awards, winning Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. Its leading single "Formation" received nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Music Video, while "Hold Up", "Don't Hurt Yourself", and "Freedom" were nominated in pop, rock, and rap categories.
