Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade‘ finds even more critical acclaim today from Rolling Stone magazine.
Find out why below…
The publication have unveiled their ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time‘ list today, and it comes with high praise for the 2016 LP.
Beating out the incomparable Amy Winehouse’s final studio album, ‘Back to Black‘, ‘Lemonade’ earns the honor of being deemed best female album of the century, reaching an incredible position of thirty two out of five hundred.
Gushing over the album, Rolling Stone declared the project as being the Diva’s ‘most expansive and personal statement, tapping into marital breakdown and the state of the nation. It was a different side than she’d shown before, raging over infidelity and jealousy, but reveling in the militant-feminist-funk strut of “Formation”.’
RS go on to add:
“Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks — all hail the queen.”
All hail Queen Bey indeed!
Judging from critics and fans alike, ‘Lemonade‘ has arguably become a ‘magnum opus’ of sorts for Bey. Its themes of heartbreak, jealousy and forgiveness lend to its relate-ability and is clearly resonated with many – including Rolling Stone.
We wonder if ‘Lemonade’ will be helmed as her best piece of work in the future… or maybe there’s better to come?
‘Lemonade’ beats Mariah Carey’s ‘The Emancipation of Mimi‘ and Aaliyah’s ‘One in A Million’ by hundreds of places. Do you agree with the album’s positioning on the list?
