beyoncé surprises the world with her most powerful album yet
Lemonade is a rich, layered and thought-provoking audio-visual extravaganza. It's here! Following last night's @HBO special, Beyoncé has dropped her sixth album Lemonade. It's available to stream exclusively on TIDAL, either as an hour-long visual album (which is what HBO premiered last night) or a 45-minute audio playlist consisting of 12 tracks. If you were hoping to be swamped with new Beyoncé, you won't be disappointed. TIDAL says the album is "based on every woman's journey of self-knowledge and healing," but Lemonade's narrative actually feels more specific than this as Bey spins a story of infidelity, despair and ultimately reconciliation. On a standout track calledSorry, Bey sings: "He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair." It's a lyric that's destined to become one of the memes of 2016 as gossip sites tie themselves in knots trying to analyse whether Bey is telling us Jay-Z cheated on her. 
But as Formation (which closes the album) had suggested, Lemonade also feels thrillingly political and overtly feminist. The visual album features an except from a 1962 speech by Malcolm X in which the civil rights leader states: "The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman." It's surely no coincidence that Bey's co-stars throughout the visual album are mainly black and female, with Serena Williams, Zendaya, Amandla Stenberg, Chloe and Halle, Ibeyi and Quvenzhané Wallis all making guest appearances. The wonder of motherhood is also a recurring theme, with Bey telling us at one point: "Your mother is a woman and women like her cannot be contained."
Musically, the album contains Bey's most ambitious, varied and distinctive work yet. The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, James Blake and The White Stripes' Jack White all feature, and there are samples from tracks as diverse as Led Zeppelin's When the Levee Breaks, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Maps and Soulja Boy Tell'em'sTurn My Swag On. The remarkable Daddy Lessons is Bey's first country song and Sandcastles is a stunning stripped-down ballad, while other tracks ricochet from gospel to rock, R&B to reggae. It's catchy too: Hold Up and Sorry especially already sound like radio hits.
Lemonade will take days to dissect properly because the music is so rich and the visual album contains an endless array of arresting images: Bey smashing up cars with a baseball bat, a braided Bey riding a horse, Bey on the floor playing an electric piano, Bey watching on as Serena Williams shows off her twerking skills. Look out too for some incredibly candid home video footage and a subtle endorsement of same-sex relationships towards the end. Bey also shows us where the album's title presumably came from by including a brief scene from the 90th birthday party of Hattie White, Jay-Z's grandmother. "I was served lemons but I made lemonade," White tells her friends and family. With Lemonade, Beyoncé has made her most powerful artistic statement yet, one that cements her status as one of the all-time great pop stars.

O'Connor: How the player +Colin Kaepernick who wasn't there won the day. How the player who wasn't there won the day
8:00 PM PT Ian O'Connor +ESPN (TV Network) Senior Writer
The visuals all across the +NFL from Lambeau Field to London, declared an unemployed quarterback named Colin Kaepernick as the biggest winner of the day. He started this movement by sitting next to some Gatorade buckets 13 months ago during a preseason playing of the national anthem, and it is possible he paid for that protest with the rest of his NFL career.
But this was Kaepernick's defining moment Sunday, far more significant than his two playoff conquests of Aaron Rodgers and his NFC Championship Game victory over Atlanta in 2013. Dozens of NFL players took a knee during the anthem -- Kaepernick's revised form of protesting police brutality and racial inequities in society -- and at night, around the bend from the White House, a whole procession of Raiders took a seat before playing Washington. The Steelers, Titans and Seahawks declined to take the field for the anthem. Scores of players, coaches and owners stood on two continents with arms locked in a show of unity after President Donald Trump profanely called for the firings of men who had peacefully exercised their First Amendment rights.

'Hopefully it's not a one-week thing': Malcom Jenkins on what happens now

What's the point of these protests during the national anthem? For the Eagles safety, they're just a start. He wants to effect change off the field.



NFL players who protested during the national anthem in Week 3

After President Donald Trump criticized NFL players who lodge pregame protests, several players protested during the national anthem in Week 3.



What NFL players, coaches are saying about protests

Every team participated in some form of demonstration in response to President Donald Trump's criticism of NFL players who protested during the national anthem. Here's a sampling of quotes from an emotional day across the league.

Professional football players weren't alone in expressing their dissent over the weekend. Bruce Maxwell, Oakland A's catcher, became the first MLB player to drop to a knee during "The Star-Spangled Banner." The entire Garfield High football team took a knee in Seattle. Stevie Wonder, legendary singer, took two knees at a New York music festival. Rico LaVelle, national anthem singer at the Falcons-Lions game in Detroit, took a knee at the close of the song and then raised his right fist in the air.

"If we don't protest, how are we going to get our voices heard?" Marlin Briscoe, the first African-American to start a pro football game at quarterback, told ESPN.com by phone. "I've supported everything Kaepernick and those who followed have done."
