Critics’ Takes:

“This is Beyoncé channeling Oshun, the Yoruba goddess of water, fertility, love, sensuality. Powerful and beautiful and mythical.” – Yohana Desta, Mashable

“Lemonade shows Beyoncé in a way we rarely saw her: Vulnerable, raw and not her usual flawless public self.” – Jessica Sager, Parade
