Review: Beyoncé – Lemonade (Columbia)

The album is a brutally honest look into Beyoncé’s womanhood, her blackness and the intersection between the two. It is quite arguably her magnum opus; a career defining work of art which offers a jarring and oftentimes uncomfortable look into Beyoncé’s marriage and her experiences as a black woman.

SIA – This Is Acting (Inertia / Monkey Puzzle / RCA)

This is Acting probably seemed like a great idea on paper - Sia taking back songs that she’s written for others, and making them her own.
