As Beyoncé inches closer to the release date for her sixth studio album, the icon has her fans once again drawing questions about the project following the release of a teaser video for her “Lemonade” special on HBO. But despite it being the follow-up to her surprise “Formation” single and video release back in February, the cryptic video may possibly offer some hints about the reported issues rocking the singer’s marriage to Jay Z!
The first teaser for the project — which will air on HBO on April 23 at 9 p.m. EST — was released on April 16. And an extended version then dropped on April 17! The project is being described as a documentary-style special that is expected to be the launching pad for her long-awaited sixth album!
But the visuals for the project are glaringly darker and more moody than the majority of the videos the singer released during her surprise Beyoncé album drop back in 2013. And upon a more lengthy look at the "Lemonade" clips that are currently out, fans of the singer noted that she sounds and appears to be teasing some form of inner drama she’ll address on the new album!
“The past and present merge to meet us here,” she says in the video after a series of quick cuts showing her wearing a white dress and appearing to yell at the camera.
“What are you hiding?” she then adds, as she slowly lifts her head while appearing to hold on to what may be the back window a SUV.
“Why can’t you see me?” she then asks. “You are the love of my life." And in another quick scene, she is seen spinning a wooden bat in her hand while strutting down the street as explosions go off behind her!
Beyoncé released the shocking teaser amid growing rumors that she is facing some serious issues in her marriage to Jay Z. And some fans are speculating on both Instagram and Twitter that the imagery in the clip may serve as her way to express the latest round of scandals she is facing!
A source recently told RadarOnline.com that Jay Z is growing frustrated with the success of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment management and media company as she kicks off the next phase in her music career!
“She really wants to turn Parkwood into an empire now,” the source said about her plans to grow her Parkwood business.
The insider continued, “There is a lot of jealousy right now between Beyonce and Jay Z because her career is at a super high point and, unfortunately, Jay Z has been relatively stagnant in his own career in comparison!”
And the buzz surrounding "Lemonade"’s premiere is only adding to the Beyhive’s concerns about the state of the power couple’s marriage! What do you think about Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” project? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in the comments section.
