Did you take a Twitter vacation over the weekend? If you weren't already aware, Beyonce just went right ahead and Beyonce'd again, releasing a (sort of) surprise album called Lemonade. Though it was previously only streaming on Tidal, for which you have to have a paid account, it's coming out on CD/DVD May 6th! You can preorder it now.

Anyone who's played her previous album to death, 2013's excellent Beyonce, knows they're in for something special. To boot, this new album features work by The Weeknd, James Blake, Jack White and Kendrick Lamar, plus samples and inspiration from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Soulja Boy and Animal Collective. Production was handled by Just Blaze, Diplo and Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend.

Kendrick Lamar's New "Untitled Unmastered" Needs No Name

Kendrick Lamar Untitled UnmasteredKendrick Lamar and label Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), are wasting no time in 2016. He’s currently President Obama’s favorite rapper and just added four more Grammy awards to his collection. And in response to a request from NBA player Lebron James, Kendrick Lamar has delivered another album. After seeing Kendrick's powerfully provoking Grammy performance in February, Lebron James tweeted to the TDE CEO begging for the release of previously performed untitled Kendrick tracks. Within two months, TDE dropped Kendrick’s Untitled Unmastered album.

The project features eight hearty tracks ranging diversely in style and over 20 collaborators, bringing many multifarious contributions to the sound of the album. Killer contemporary hip-hop producers like Hit-Boy, Cardo, Swizz Beatz, and DJ Spinz provide booming bassy production unlike what’s heard on Kendrick's To Pimp a Butterfly album. While longtime collaborators Terrace Martin (producer, piano, and horns) and Thundercat (bass), who made key contributions to To Pimp a Butterfly, are seen on "Untitled 3." The wide array of features including Bilal, CeeLo Green, Jay Rock, SZA, and Adrian Younge aid in creating a series of wildly dynamic works.
