Beyonce Releases Demo Version Of "Sorry" And 'Lemonade' Album On Streaming Platforms

The month of April belongs to Queen Bey after she's gifted fans with something new week after week. Following the debut of her first of three reported productions with Netflix, plus new clothing merchandise just in time for spring, Beyonce placed her Lemonade album on all streaming services.

Not only is her sixth solo studio album available on Spotify, Apple Music, and other platforms, but she also added a demo version of "Sorry" as the last track. This melody hosts a notable departure from its album version, stripping away from the resounding drums and added lyrics for a stripped-down version of the song written by Wynter Gordon, MeLo-X and the "All Night" singer. The album's upload also arrives on the three-year anniversary of its debut (April 23).

Through its exploration of different music genres, Beyonce revealed her emotions and perseverance in the face of Jay-Z's infidelity. "Sorry" served as one of those songs that put this bump in their marital journey on lyrical display.

In a previous interview with David Letterman, Jay-Z said therapy played a pivotal role in mending their marriage. “We did the hard work of going to therapy. We love each other, so we really put in the work for years,” he said. "...I like to believe we’re in a better place today. I’m proud of the father and the husband that I am today.”

Kylie Jenner Teases New Travis Scott Song In Makeup Promo

Kylie Jenner got a little help from her boyfriend Travis Scott in order to promote Kylie Cosmetics’ latest KYBROWS eyebrow pencil.

In an ad promoting the upcoming product, Jenner utilizes the “SICKO MODE” musician’s reportedly-unreleased song as background music. In the trippy track, Scott says “she fill my mind up with ideas, I’m the highest in the room, hope I make it out of here…”

While we’re not sure if new music is certainly on the way from the Grammy-nominated rapper, Jenner’s KYBROWS drops next week (April 29). Scott’s most recent project, ASTROWORLD, was released in 2018, and he continues to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His February ASTROWORLD tour stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum added him to the list of artists who have sold out the venue more than once in a 12-month span.

YG Shares Fourth Album Title Ahead Of May Release Date

YG is preparing to bless fans with a highly-anticipated full-length album since he announced its release for May 3. Now, in an interview with Billboard, the "FDT" rapper shared the fourth studio project's name, 4REAL 4REAL.

The 29-year-old artist revealed that being in the studio is where he feels unabashedly free, especially given this tough time since his longtime friend Nipsey Hussle was murdered on March 31. "If I'm not doing music, I feel depressed," he said. "I feel like I ain't sh*t. I like to create, and right now, I know where I want to be, and I know how to get there."

The Compton native's previous album, Stay Dangerous, hosts singles like "Big Bank," "Handgun," and other cuts featuring Jay 305 like "Bulletproof," "Slay" with Quavo," and "Power" featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

"From my first album to my second album, and from my second album to my third album, it took me two years to put out each project," he said. "That wasn't my choice. Life was changing: I got shot, I had a daughter. It was crazy—it took a little longer."

YG's upcoming project was originally slated for a mid-April release, but when the shocking news of Hussle's passing hit, the famed rapper placed a halt on the soundscape's debut. During his first weekend set at Coachella, YG said he was able to push through the performance given his consumption of alcohol. "But my ni**a gone," he said, per HipHopDX. "I got to deal with the sh*t. So I decided to push my album back to May 3."
