Beyoncé stopped the world when “Lemonade” dropped and the response to the visual album happened in real-time all over social media. Becky’s had to go into hiding, the sales for actual lemonade as a beverage sky-rocketed and a syllabus of literary woke Black female authors was distributed.
On the Houston leg of her “Formation” Tour, Beyoncé shared this hilarious reaction video to her Lemonade HBO visual-album release by vlogger Evelyn From the Internets, who details the ingredients of Bey’s 'Lemonade.'
“Beyoncé was giving me… Waiting to Exhale meets Their Eyes Were Watching God… I Corinthians ‘Love Is’ and then Tina Turner What’s Love Got to do With It…” Evelyn said.
“Beyoncé pulled out the VHS tapes gave us the past; she called on Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown and Eric Garner’s mother to give us the present, and then she surrounded us with visuals of the Black future,” she stated.
“She called Serena Williams, one of the world’s best athletes… just to look back at it,” she noted.
Needless to say, friends of Eveyln from the Internets were excited to see her on Beyoncé’s “Formation” Tour.
Way to go Evelyn!
