On April 23, 2016, Beyonce dropped a surprise album that shook the world. "Lemonade" is a 12-track album supplemented by an hour-long film of the same name. It was nominated for and won tons of awards, sold millions of copies, and inspired hundreds of memes, but the cultural significance of the album and how it spoke to its target audience is a much bigger deal.
"Lemonade" is championed as a revolutionary Black feminist album that touches on everything from police brutality and politics, to love and history. It is hands down Beyonce's most personal work to-date, and it will be remembered forever as an influential, genre-bending, and game changing masterpiece.
For the anniversary of the project, fans took to social media to celebrate #1YearofLemonade and to reflect on the impact of the music. Many shared photos of Beyonce and their favorite lyrics. Others tried to express (within the limitations of a tweet) just how important songs like "Formation," "Sandcastles," and "Sorry" are to their lives. Others let their moves speak for them:
