This past Saturday, the world rejoiced when Queen Beyoncé finally
released her new visual album Lemonade.
Unless you're Piers Morgan
, you've probably listened to the new album a million times already and can't stop googling who "Becky" might be. Wait - that's just us?
Regardless, Beyoncé teamed up with a a ton of different musicians and producers to work on this next album. The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, Father John Misty, Diplo, and even Detroit's own Jack White contributed in one way or another.
So do yourself a favor today and check out the song 'Don't Hurt Yourself" that is on the album. White received a writing credit, and it featured in the chorus of this charged song. Jack White's signature guitar licks are all over his track (it sounds like it could fit on his latest work Lazaretto)
, as well as a funky bass line. But the lyrics are the best part of this song. Beyoncé absolutely destroys a cheating lover (allegedly Jay-Z) with lines like "Who the fuck do you think I is?/ You ain't married to no average bitch boy" and "If you try this shit again/ you gone lose your wife." We are here. For. It.
The album is only available on Tidal (btw, Jack White is a co-owner) and iTunes, but here is the link
to listen if you happen to be a Tidal user.
Just to paint a picture of how things go down in the "Don't Hurt Yourself" section of Lemonade,
here are a series of GIFS. Enjoy.
