Just days after releasing her latest visual album, Lemonade, Beyonce kicked off her Formation World Tour in Miami Wednesday night at Marlins Park. The 34-year-old superstar entertained the raucous crowd to over 30 songs from her discography, including some off her new LP. “Formation” kicked off the evening with “Halo” capping the night. In between all her hits, Bey delivered a cover of the Prince classic, “Purple Rain.”

Speaking of the tour, concert goers were surprised with the official merchandise on sale. In quite a savvy business move, Bey is addressing her haters by selling “Boycott Beyoncé” goods in the form of t-shirts and iPhone cases. If you recall, some urged to boycott Bey after her Black Panther-inspired Super Bowl performance. I admit, it’s kinda brilliant and I want a tee of my own.

In other Bey-related news, Mrs. Carter made her sixth studio record available for streaming on Pandora. Apparently, Tidal having “exclusively in perpetuity” only meant a week 😉 Check out Bey’s new concert set list in full below, along with a concert promo she posted on Instagram.

The minute I saw Beyonce’s HBO special, I just knew it would be fodder for late night television. And right I was. Practically every show on Monday night poked fun at “Lemonade.” Once again, James Corden blew his competition out of the water with another well-executed stunt.

The 37-year-old comedian spoofed some of the most memorable moments and looks from Bey’s visual opus, “Lemonade.” From smashing cars with a bat to making some homemade lemonade while dressed in a black bikini, Corden channeled Queen B to perfection. Check out the masterpiece below.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Recipe

Where was this before Beyonce’s HBO special aired on Saturday? It would’ve definitely come in handy. Not that my store-bought frozen lemonade wasn’t tasty, but a homemade one from scratch would’ve no doubt impressed my guests. Especially if it was a recipe from Bey’s own grandmother.

Oh well, at least I can try it out for one of my upcoming gatherings this summer. Nothing goes down better on a hot summer day than some ice-cold lemonade, right? Check out the video recipe below.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Available On iTunes

After her highly-anticipated HBO special premiered, LEMONADE, immediately became available for streaming and sale exclusively on TIDAL. As much as I love Beyonce, I didn’t cave in and sign up for a free 30-day trial. Wise move on my part. Just 24 hours later, Bey’s 6th studio album appeared on iTunes and unlike her previous album initially, tracks were available to purchase individually. With regards to streaming though, it appears LEMONADE will stream “exclusively in perpetuity” over at TIDAL.

Did you watch LEMONADE on HBO this past weekend? I did and even had a few people over to catch it. While I enjoyed her ambitious feminist feature film with beautifully-shot images of Afro-American Southern imagery, voodoo visuals and futuristic moments, I was a little underwhelmed by the music. IMHO, there wasn’t a single track that screamed instant radio hit. With that being said “Hold Up, “”6 Inch” feature The Weeknd, “Daddy Lessons” and “Sorry” I instantly liked.

Beyonce Debuts Extended ‘Lemonade’ Trailer

On the heels of a cryptic “Lemonade” teaser comes an extended look at her mysterious worldwide premiere event airing on HBO on April 23. Just because there’s more footage though, it doesn’t necessarily mean fans have a clearer picture of what Beyonce has in store for her Hive next weekend. The 34-year-old superstar loves keeping people on their toes.

As previously stated, I’m assuming the HBO special has something to do with a new album. Her “Formation World Tour” kicks off just days later on April 27. But you know what they say about assuming.

The longer clip includes the same footage of Mrs. Carter rocking fierce blonde braids and a fur coat, but also features new scenes as well. One of the more interesting moments spotlights former America’s Next Top Model contestant Chantelle Brown who now goes by Winnie Harlow. The Canadian model who had vitiligo competed on Cycle 21 on ANTM where she placed sixth. Check out the extended teaser below.

Thirsty for some Beyonce? You’re in luck. The 34-year-old superstar is serving up some “Lemonade” next week. Exactly what that means, who knows? Whatever it is, it’ll be a worldwide premiere event. Once again, Bey is keeping her fans in the dark.

A 20-second clip titled “Lemonade” took over her YouTube page, Instagram, and official website this weekend. Rocking some fierce braids and a fur coat, Mrs. Carter is heard saying “What am I going to do, love?” She responds mysteriously with, “Going to do” twice. Always so shady that one 😉

With her “Formation World Tour” kicking off April 27, I’m assuming it’s her new album but you know what they say about assuming. Check out the clip below. Be sure to tune in to HBO on April 23 at 9 p.m.

Beyonce’s Protégées Debut New Music Videos

Beyonce is certainly wearing a lot of hats these days. On the heels of launching her activewear line, Ivy Park, the 34-year-old is developing teen artists too. All this in addition to kicking off a new tour and dropping that rumored new album. Busy, busy, busy B!!!

In the latest issue of Elle magazine, Bey discusses the acts signed on her label, Parkwood Entertainment. The sister act of Chloe x Halle and singer-songwriter Sophie Beem were signed last year while rapper Ingrid is a relatively new addition.

The former two acts recently debuted new music videos and both deserve a view. “Drop” by the sibling act is a haunting affair with operatic tones and folk touches. It doesn’t scream radio hit but it’s fantastic nonetheless. Not what I expected from them.

Meanwhile “Skyline” from Beem was co-written by the team who gave us “Airplanes” by B.o.B. Check them both out below. These two acts definitely have a bright future ahead of them.

Some people just can’t take a joke these days. That’s especially true for the BeyHive. They’re definitely a prickly and vengeful bunch, especially when it comes to their Queen.

The brouhaha began after Beyonce debuted her new activewear line called Ivy Park. In a now-deleted tweet, Lululemon wrote, “They do say imitation is the best form of flattery. Maybe Beyonce is so Crazy In Love with our brand, she made her own.” In their defense, they were simply responding to Twitter user @GoodGuySly who asked, “Is ivy park supposed to be like lululemon?”

I love Beyonce as much as the next guy, if not more, but I didn’t find Lululemon’s tweet shady at all. It felt quite playful if anything. Personally, I typically poke fun at the people I care about the most. Regardless, the company posted a series of apologies after being inundated by Bey’s rabid fan base.
