It doesn’t look like Beyoncé fans will be getting a new visual album when the singer’s HBO special, “Lemonade,” premieres Saturday. Fans have been left wondering what the pop star was planning when she cryptically announced the project over the weekend, and finally a few questions have been answered.
Entertainment Weekly reports that a source close to Beyoncé provided a few small details about “Lemonade” and said it will be a “lengthy concept video.” Unfortunately, the source didn’t go into any more details so fans will have to wait until this weekend to actually see what the HBO special is all about.
As previously reported, Beyoncé first teased the project Saturday when she posted a short teaser video on Instagram. The Ivy Park designer, 34, then dropped a lengthier video Sunday that included a little more footage.
Shortly after Beyoncé released the first video several outlets reported that it was believed “Lemonade” would be a visual album, similar to her 2013 self-titled album which included music videos with every track. Rumors first surfaced that the pop star was working on a new album several months ago when she was spotted filming around Los Angeles and New Orleans.
The rumors went into overdrive when her stylist, Ty Hunter, said on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” in February that he had already heard the album. “It’s beyond awesome. It’s great,” he said (via E! News).
It’s believed that “Formation,” which was released in February ahead of her Super Bowl 50 halftime show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars, is the first single from the unconfirmed album.
“Lemonade” premieres April 23 at 9 p.m. EDT on HBO.
