Beyoncé’s new album, "Lemonade," made its debut on Saturday night on HBO and Tidal. She is one of the most influential people, and to those who don’t like her, I don’t want to meet you. She is a hard-worker, and I support her always. When watching her visual album, I noticed it wasn’t the typical Beyoncé that we’ve been used to. She wrote all of the songs, and you can tell. I’ve never been more impressed with anyone. She spoke about not only her relationship with Jay Z, but also about black equity, which can be heard through her song, “Freedom.” Here are my top favorite songs from Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.”

1. “Hold Up”

The intro comes in, and you’re a little confused because it sounds like an abandoned amusement park. Then the beat drops. Right off the bat (literally, she has a bat), she talks about how they don’t love him like she loves him. She puts him first, and he still can’t manage to treat her. Beyoncé really shows her vulnerability because she explains how he’s coming up after midnight, smelling how he shouldn’t be smelling and what she found on his call list. Then she asks, “What’s worse - jealous or crazy?” She continues to talk about how she loves him, and then she says, “You let this good love go to waste.” It’s a good introduction to the situation of what is about to continue on into the album. Even though she’s smashing his windows, you hear the music, and it’s nice and mellow with a good beat. If you sing the song smiling like she did, it’s harmless.

2. “Don’t Hurt Yourself”

Whoever is messing with her, she wants them to know she isn’t average. Beyoncé isn’t playing with this one. She is fed up and is about to be out because she doesn’t need you. She didn’t need you to begin with because she has her own money, honey. Whatever you do to Beyoncé, you do it to yourself. She knows you’re lying, and you aren’t trying hard enough. Step up your game; she’s already too much for you. Beyoncé had the nerve to not only call him out about the fragrance she smells, but she went that extra mile and said give her a big kiss for me. Beyoncé sings, “You thought you were slick, huh?” As the song ends, she says it’s his final warning. It makes you wonder what she’s going do if he doesn’t take his final warning seriously. “You gon’ lose yo wife,” she says.

3. Sorry

This title is super confusing because she starts right off with saying, “I ain’t sorry.” She isn’t picking up his calls, isn’t thinking about him and is out with her friends. She’s over it. You go, Beyoncé! She has her middle finger up with hands high, waving it in his face and telling him, “Boy, bye.” This song makes me want to call my exes and say, “I ain’t sorry,” and I dated them years ago. She talks about how she regrets getting married because he’s late and is going to come home with some dumb excuse. Beyoncé is ready to roll out and move on with her life without looking back. This is her 2016 “Irreplaceable.” My favorite part is when she drops, “You better call Becky with the good hair.” Yes, middle finger up, deuces up, goodbye and call Becky with the good hair.

4. “6 Inch”

Beyoncé just has all the confidence in the world because she’s walking into the club and doesn’t care whatsoever. I really like this song. This is the song I will play forever when I get ready before I’m about to go out. This song just speaks about her getting her money nonstop and how she’s earned everything she owns. This is more of just a guilty pleasure because she’s doing what she has to do for her, no one else. Yes, Beyoncé, keep hustling.

5. “Daddy Lessons”

It starts off with that Louisiana vibe, and you’re feeling like you’re right on Bourbon Street, killing it during Mardi Gras. Then the guitar music comes in, and you’re ready to jam. She explains that she’s “daddy’s little girl,” and she had to grow up tough. This song is basically about her father teaching her how she should value herself and be strong, not letting any man push her around or make her feel any less than what she’s worth. Basically, shoot any man who isn’t worth it and who makes you cry. It’s a little extreme. Also, her dad says, “He’s playing you.” It just goes to show how much a dad really knows when it comes to his little girls. Here’s to the dads who have their daughters’ backs.

When You Give A Girl A Dad

You give her everything
73840

They say that any male can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad. That dads are just the people that created the child, so to speak, but rather, dads raise their children to be the best they can be. Further, when you give a little girl a dad, you give her much more than a father; you give her the world in one man.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a rock.

Life is tough, and life is constantly changing directions and route. In a world that's never not moving, a girl needs something stable. She needs something that won't let her be alone; someone that's going to be there when life is going great, and someone who is going to be there for her when life is everything but ideal. Dads don't give up on this daughters, they never will.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a role model.

If we never had someone to look up to, we would never have someone to strive to be. When you give a little girl someone to look up to, you give her someone to be. We copy their mannerisms, we copy their habits, and we copy their work ethic. Little girls need someone to show them the world, so that they can create their own.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her the first boy she will ever love.

And I'm not really sure someone will ever be better than him either. He's the first guy to take your heart, and every person you love after him is just a comparison to his endless, unmatchable love. He shows you your worth, and he shows you what your should be treated like: a princess.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her someone to make proud.

After every softball game, soccer tournament, cheerleading competition, etc., you can find every little girl looking up to their dads for their approval. Later in life, they look to their dad with their grades, internships, and little accomplishments. Dads are the reason we try so hard to be the best we can be. Dads raised us to be the very best at whatever we chose to do, and they were there to support you through everything. They are the hardest critics, but they are always your biggest fans.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a credit card.

It's completely true. Dads are the reason we have the things we have, thank the Lord. He's the best to shop with too, since he usually remains outside the store the entire time till he is summoned in to forge the bill. All seriousness, they always give their little girls more than they give themselves, and that's something we love so much about you.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a shoulder to cry on.

When you fell down and cut yourself, your mom looked at you and told you to suck it up. But your dad, on the other hand, got down on the ground with you, and he let you cry. Then later on, when you made a mistake, or broke up with a boy, or just got sad, he was there to dry your tears and tell you everything was going to be okay, especially when you thought the world was crashing down. He will always be there to tell you everything is going to be okay, even when they don't know if everything is going to be okay. That's his job.


When you give a girl a dad, you give her a lifelong best friend.

My dad was my first best friend, and he will be my last. He's stood by me when times got tough, he carried me when I just couldn't do it anymore, and he yelled at me when I deserved it; but the one thing he has never done was give up on me. He will always be the first person I tell good news to, and the last person I ever want to disappoint. He's everything I could ever want in a best friend and more.


Dads are something out of a fairytale. They are your prince charming, your knight in shinny amour, and your fairy godfather. Dads are the reasons we are the people we are today; something that a million "thank you"' will never be enough for.
