It has not even been a full year since Beyoncé dropped her latest visual album Lemonade, but the film and album are already bordering on the realm of iconic, or at least, instant classics. Beyoncé seems keenly aware of this fact as well, which must be why she keeps blessing us with more and more gifts tied to the record. Fresh from releasing a a whole new batch of Lemonade-centric merch, Bey has celebrated the (real) holiday National Lemonade Day by sharing a wealth of behind-the-scenes photos captured during the making of her short film.
The batch of photography contains stills from nearly every one of the segments of her visual album, with some of the most eye-catching shots coming from the baseball-wielding “Hold Up” and the fiery, nightmarish visions of “6 Inch.” Each of the photos Bey shared contain single-word captions hinting at the intentions and messages contained within each video, such as “emptiness” or “resurrection.”
We would say something about how impossible it is for her to appear so consistently beautiful in-between camera takes, but this is Beyoncé we are dealing with. As she says herself, she's flawless.
Take a look at some of the photos she shared in the gallery above, and try not to weep at her overwhelming perfection and beauty. See the full selection on her website.
Lemonade is available now on the iTunes store.
In related news, Universal is preparing to ban streaming exclusives entirely, meaning Bey will have to come up with some new strategies for the release of her next album.
