Since it's only right to learn about all things lemonade from the person who basically invented it, Lemonade singer Beyoncé is here to teach you a thing or two about how to make it — sort of. Just a year after releasing the Grammy Award-winning album of the same name, the "Formation" performer announced via Instagram on Tuesday that she’s releasing a “How to Make Lemonade” box set that features a vinyl version of the album, as well as a 600+ page coffee table book with hundreds of never-before-seen photos from the making of the album. OK, so you obviously won’t learn how to actually make a pitcher of lemonade but, metaphorically speaking, you’ll get a closer look at what all inspired the album.
In addition, you'll get the “themes behind some of the film’s most provocative and cryptic moments” and some behind-the-scenes photos from filming. The book will also include a foreword written by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, poetry by Warsan Shire, and Beyoncé’s own lyrics. It’s currently available for pre-order on the singer’s website, but, as often happens during the sale of any Beyoncé-related merchandise, you have to act fast since it'll only be available for a limited time.
Just last week, the singer celebrated the one-year anniversary of Lemonade’s release by adding new merchandise, such as shirts, hoodies, and phone cases, to her online store. She also recently announced the creation of the Formation Scholars awards, a scholarship fund for women students for the 2017-2018 academic school year.
The “How to Make Lemonade” box set proves that the queen isn’t done commemorating the album just yet. The entire box set starts at $299.99, so, if you were planning on paying rent this month, you might want to get your priorities straight. You can also purchase the vinyl album separately for just $29.98. Both items are set to ship out this summer.
Ladies, get in formation. Beyoncé's continuing to lead the game.
