Queen Bey is releasing her album on Tidal. The album Lemonade is already platinum by sales figures. It's one of the very few albums in Beyonce's collection where she is the "bawse" of this.
The BeyHive is thrilled.
She is the Queen of Pop.
The album was accompanied by the release of a 60-minute short film of the same name, which premiered on HBO. It features co-production from a wide range of artists, and includes guest vocals from artists including James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and Jack White. To further promote the album, Beyoncé will embark on The Formation World Tour in April 2016.
Beyonce released the album on her very own Parkwood Entertainment, Inc. label.
Well apparently not all are too happy with Beyonce. This afternoon The Drudge Report splashes this title "Beyonce 'Urban Terrorist' In New Video; Baseball Bat Rampage."
The second single off the album is Hold Up. The video is featuring Beyonce smashing windows while children and people are watching.
This critic named Roger Friedman penned a criticism about the video. He didn't happen to actually get the message about how subliminal Queen Bey is.

Friedman added, "Indeed, all of 'Lemonade' appears to be Beyonce saying she's made lemonade from lemons– meaning she's somehow stuck it out in a bad marriage despite lying and infidelity. That sounds more like the Clintons' story than the Obamas'".
He says that Jay-Z should be in her videos. After all they're a married couple. Friedman also takes a shot at Tidal, the music streaming service that Jay-Z is part owner in. Beyonce is Jay-Z's business partner. He supports her 100%.
The most notable lyrics he managed to whine about were "I’d rather be crazy" than being "walked all over lately." She asks: "Are you cheating on me?"
"Back up hold up/They don’t love you like I love you."
"I’m gonna fuck me up a bitch.”
So Friedman sums it up in his condescending fashion. He believes that Beyonce looks nuts in this video.
He says that Beyonce is suppose to be a role model to women across the world. He believes that she's a slut and her actions are pleasing crowds that "[Act out] at one of those Monster truck rallies."
The link was posted at 2:30pm and the video was released on Tidal about 11am.

Friedman has a history of making outlandish gossip about Hollywood. He's no fan of Beyonce and Jay-Z. He is a conservative movie critic who rants about how movies like 2014's Annie were trash because it had Black actors instead of White actors.
This morning the conservative agitator splashed First Lady Michelle Obama delivering her commencement speech at a Mississippi college on the state's controversial religious freedom law.
This is what Matt Drudge does for a living! He deliberately pushes stories that involve racial issues.
As you see below, this was the earlier posting from the conservative Craigslist.
Drudge has picked fights with the Carters before. In 2013, it splashed Jay-Z and Beyonce appearing in Cuba to celebrate their wedding anniversary. Conservatives were upset over it. Five Florida Republican lawmakers were calling for investigations into the couple's trip. Even hip-hop head, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was wondering why Jay-Z would pick a place like Cuba to have a vacation.
Republicans and conservative agitators have blamed President Barack Obama for giving special access to the Carters.
The conservatives are picking a fight with Queen Bey and it's going to backfire.
Beyonce isn't playing games. She is very passionate about the plight in Black America. She has been a vocal supporter of #BlackLivesMatter and has appeared with Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin.
With this being splashed on the website, conservatives are planning on going after her for being "anti-cop" or "anti-White".
You won't be able to see the video or listen to the full album on YouTube, DailyMotion or any video streaming services.
It's exclusively on Tidal.
So don't expect any videos being posted Vevo until later.
Listen to comedian Zachary Campbell give his take on Beyonce.
