UPDATE (4/18, 9:45AM): HBO released the full trailer for "Lemonade," which you can watch above. The extended clip includes fast-paced and chilling imagery of Beyoncé feverishly smashing surveillance cameras with a baseball bat, dancers' faces painted as masks and the singer rocking a wedding dress. The "Formation" diva faintly whispers in the background,
“The past and the present merge to meet us here. What are you hiding? Why can’t you see me? You’re the love of my life. What am I doing my love? Pull me in."
We still have no clue what "Lemonade" will be until its April 23 release, but this new trailer just amped up the anticipation.
Original Story (4/16 at 1:20PM): "What am I gonna do?" We haven't the faintest idea, Beyoncé, but we're here for it.
Queen Bey just dropped a teaser for "Lemonade," and it's twenty seconds of straight-up mystery. The video clip, which the pop star shared via her Instagram and YouTube accounts this morning, features Bey leaning up against a car, her head against the grill as her own disembodied voice hovers over the scene: "What am I gonna do, love? What am I gonna do?"
Her look is familiar, here, in that these are the same braids and fur coat we see for a blip in "Formation" when she's hanging out of the window of a slowly-driving car. Is it the same ride? Is "Lemonade" an extension of "Formation," or one that carries on the video's intensely powerful messages? The FADER points out that the BeyHive has been on "Lemonade" Watch for some time now, noting that filming for a Beyoncé project took place in New Orleans, where scenes from "Formation" were cut, and Los Angeles.
Time will tell, as the clip also comes with release information: "Lemonade" will premiere on HBO on April 23.
