When Lemonade was released, the release had a similar wham damn thank you man impact as did the Beatles Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band1 album 4 decades earlier. Those of you old enough may recall in vivid pictures, exactly where they got to hear Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band first. No films, only music in a distinct environment we remember.

Lemonade came along as a visual album in motion picture with new ideas we never thought of. We picked up a video here and there. Each one throwing us off completely.

With Black is King you are getting an encore, astonishing, amazing, of enormous beauty yet less inventive since we remember Lemonade’s release so well.
