What Does Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' Tell Us About Genre?

FUSE TV - What Does Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' Tell Us About Genre?

How do you even categorize Beyoncé’s new Lemonade album, dropped Saturday night, when Queen Bey and her bevy of collaborators have tapped into much more than her usual pop and R&B? It’s country, reggae, electronic, hip-hop, rock and jazz, too. How? How, as humans who crave labels and order and sorting, do we classify something that seems to transcend genre?

We don’t.
