You have to assume that every week is a great week for Beyonce, but this one must be extra special, as for the first time she’s got two separate albums in the Billboard 200 Top 10, Lemonade and Homecoming: The Live Album.
Lemonade, Beyonce’s visceral 2016 album of infidelity and reconciliation, was initially released for streaming on Jay Z’s Tidal service, before being released widely on streaming platforms in April. This bump in accessibility has pushed the critically acclaimed work into 9th place, a full three years after its initial release.
Always one to outdo herself, Lemonade joins recent release Homecoming: The Live Album in the Top 10, which is currently sitting pretty at number four (and on the up). Homecoming: The Live Album is part of a Netflix docu-concert project that Bey’s been working on since her 2018 Coachella performance, which features heavily in the 137 minute film. Check out the trailer below.
