5 “LEMONADE” Inspired Albums

On LEMONADE, Beyoncé uses “alleged” rough patches in her marriage to create music that inspires self-awareness, forgiveness, and redemption.

There are a few other artists who have been in “rocky” relationships and could have a LEMONADE moment themselves. Could you imagine if they released their own versions of LEMONADE?

We did…Here are 5 celeb albums inspired by Beyonce’s latest visual album:

1. CIARA – “ORANGE DRANK”

Rocky Relationship: Ciara & Future

Ciara is a dancing machine from the “A” so it would only be right if she discussed the hardships she faced in her relationship with the “Dirty Sprite” rapper in a dance-pop album.


rihanna_Rum-Punch

2. RIHANNA – “RUM PUNCH”

Rocky Relationship: Rihanna & Chris Brown

It was sad to see that everyone’s favorite island “bad gal” had a domestic violence situation with the “Run It” R&B star. Imagine Ri-Ri singing her pain over reggae-infused rhythms.


Justin_Whiskey

3. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – “WHISKEY”

Rocky Relationship: Justin Timberlake & Britney Spears

This was our ultimate favorite teen pop couple–that ended when rumors of infidelity pointed the finger to Britney. We wish Justin talked about this on a R&B meets Southern soul album.


Jennifer_Sangria

4. J.LO – “SANGRIA”

Rocky Relationship: Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony

Nothing could stop this bi-lingual music power couple–until something did. Picture a Spanglish album from Jenny-from-the-block.


Tina_Sweet-T

5. TINA TURNER – “SWEET T”

Rocky Relationship: Tina Turner & Ike Turner

We’ve all seen What’s Love Got To Do With It (don’t risk losing your Black card). Imagine if Tina talked about her turmoil on this rock-n-roll album.
