Arriving three years ago on this very day, the ‘Formation’ led set was immediately available for purchase (along with its companion visual) but was issued as a TIDAL streaming exclusive.
The move saw Queen Bey’s sixth solo set top the charts globally and sell 2.5 million – much of which was traditional units. However, limiting its streaming ability to Jay-Z‘s growing service in turn limited its streaming potential.
Initially, it looked as though ‘Lemonade’ would reside on TIDAL in perpetuity. Yet, with last year’s Carter side-product ‘Everything Is Love’ receiving a wide-release and live album ‘Homecoming’ debuting on all platforms, it seems to point to a pivot in Bey’s approach.
For its premiere on Spotify et al, the LP now features a bonus track in the form of the ‘Sorry (Demo)’; a fresh, chiller take on the turn-up anthem, it sports different lyrics.
