When life gives Beyonce lemons, the pop star makes an album called Lemonade.
Or so we think.
A cray cray amount has been speculated about the release of Bey’s visual album on HBO Saturday night, where she sings about side chicks, scorned women and rampant dishonesty.

Is Lemonade outing hubby Jay Z?
And if so, why would the songs end up on Tidal, the music streaming service the hip hop mogul owns?
We are not too sure, since it’s not as if the power couple released a statement regarding alleged infidelity in the singer and rapper’s eight-year marriage.
All we know for sure is that Queen Bey will be taking the stage at Marlins Park Wednesday night launching her World Formation Tour. And we will be watching and listening closely for any further bad-spouse or “Becky” references (hello Rita Ora or whoever you are, with your nice hair — sigh).
And if she’s in the same mood she was in while making the Hold Up video, the stadium folks better keep Ms. Carter away from the batting cage. The 34-year-old mother of one is seen in that song’s video smashing a baseball bat all over the place, raging that other women “don’t love you like I love you.”
After Miami, her next stop is Tampa Friday night, so she’ll have some time to spend — and hopefully chill out — in the Magic City. The burning question: Where will Her Highness go? Herewith a few of her most ink-worthy visits, as per a handful of past Scene in the Tropics columns:
July 2007: Beyonce shook her booty at Mansion nightclub at an exclusive afterparty for Mary J. Blige. A week later, Bey and Jay grabbed a meal accompanied by a driver and two bodyguards at Versailles. Bey was said to look “uncomfortable” but “beautiful.” No one but the waiter was allowed near them and they left through the back door.
October 2008: B was the guest of honor at Miami Children’s Hospital Diamond Ball at the AmericanAirlines Arena. But not everyone was bowing down. “She was onstage for a while,” our snitch told us at the time. “But when the people who paid $100,000 to hear her perform realized that we were just being shown a video of Beyonce in concert, they were pretty p---ed off.”
December 2013: The Carters ate like regular folk at Joey’s in Wynwood while in town for Z’s Magna Carter tour. They walked hand-in-hand through the arty streets for a few photo ops. Next stop: Cuba — before it was open to the public. Eyes may have rolled over that one, but heads didn’t.
January 2014: On a random Tuesday night, Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland, Michelle Wiliams and Beyonce were among a large group celebrating the birthday of Rowland’s now husband Tim Witherspoon at Zuma. Also in the entourage, Jay Z and Timbaland. The crew entered through a private entrance and were escorted to the back of the restaurant. Way. Despite that, they weren’t too elitist, posing with some children who spotted them.
Months later — in steamier-than-Hades August — Beyonce was back, secretly filming the Hype Williams-directed video to Drunk in Love at a Golden Beach mansion.
