** Her segment for ''Hold Up'' from her visual special for Lemonade. It's a sunny day, people are smiling, kids are playing and Beyonce, dressed in a beautiful yellow couture gown, is skipping down the street and [[LyricalDissonance singing about feelings of denial regarding her cheating lover.]] Soon, she's smashing things with a bat and driving a monster truck down said street whilst things blow up in the background.

In 2013, she released a SelfTitledAlbum with a new SouthernRap sound and a video accompanying ''every'' song with zero promotion whatsoever, a nearly unprecedented move that caused the media and internet alike to collectively piss itself. Two years later on April 23, 2016, she dropped her sixth album ''Lemonade'' --- but this time, she promoted its release with a short film that premiered on Creator/{{HBO}}, giving only a week's notice ahead.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Despite the happy ending to the album, Lemonade is her darkest and most mature album to date, being that it tells personal stories of betrayal, strained relationsships, anger, jealousy and loss.

to:

* ClusterFBomb: She began to move in this direction with ''Beyoncé'' and fully hit it on ''Lemonade''. Beyoncé says "fuck", "shit", "bitch", "[[NWordPrivileges nigga]]", "ass", "ho", "thot", "dick" and "balls", many times throughout the album, especially "fuck".

** Her Visual special to go with the release of Lemonade was more or less a celebration of black women, even going as far as to use snippets from a Malcolm X speech that talked about how the most disrespected person in America is the black woman, with cameos from Serena Williams, the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya Coleman, Quvenzhane Wallis, and even her own daughter Blue Ivy.

** The segment for ''Don't Hurt Yourself'' in the Lemonade special shows Beyonce getting frighteningly angry as she sings about getting cheated on and [[DontMakeMeDestroyYou warning her lover[[note]]whilst Beyonce hasn't even clarified who she's singing about, it's presumed that she's singing about her husband Jay-Z or her father, Matthew Knowles[[/note]] not to do it again]], coupled with a montage of Beyonce angrily confronting the camera, Beyonce in a white wedding dress glaring with a wall of fire behind her, and even throwing a ring at the camera!

* ButNotTooBlack: Often cited as a reason for her success. The trope's image also comes from a time when she was on the cover of ''L'Oréal'', who took it too far.

* BewareTheNiceOnes:
**In the one hour visual special that came with Lemonade's release, Beyonce is seen singing ''Hold Up'' whilst smiling and skipping through the streets in a beautiful yellow gown until she takes a bat and proceeds to bust up everything in sight--cars, shop windows, fire hydrants, even the cameraman! [[TranquilFury All with a smile on her face.]] And that's only before she gets into the monster truck...uh-oh.

**''Sorry'' marked the beginning of her "Apathy" chapter in the Lemonade special and the song lyrics show Beyonce just really didn't give a damn, going as far as to tell her cheating lover to "suck on [her] balls" because "[she's] had enough".

** With the release of Lemonade, we get collaborations with Music/TheWeeknd, Music/KendrickLamar, and ''even [[Music/TheWhiteStripes Jack White.]]''



* GenreShift: The song ''Diva'' was more hip-hop/rap orientated than her usual pop/R and B style. A further shift occurred with the albums "4" where she played around with classic R&B-esque songs and poppier, louder sounds. Even more so on her self-titled album "Beyoncé" with almost all of the songs.

** During her perfomance at the 2016 Super Bowl, she visibly almost falls over but leaps right back and continues the choreography. No one even notices until it was brought up days later.

* ProductPlacement: The version of "Get Me Bodied" on the Deluxe Edition of ''[=B-Day=]'' includes the line, "Shake your derriere in your [=Dereon=]," which is her clothing line. In the lyrics of "Upgrade U": "Audermars Piget watch (Swiss watch company)... Cartier top clips..."

Added DiffLines:

** [[DrinkingGame Take a sip]] every time she rhymes "yourself" with "yourself" in ''Don't Hurt Yourself''.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Hold Up'' references Maps by Music/YeahYeahYeahs and even Music/SouljaBoi


Added DiffLines:

** This was disproven in her visual special for Lemonade. Towards the end, in a montage of happy moments in Beyonce's life, there's a webcam video of Beyonce smiling while revealing her and very much pregnant stomach.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: With the release of Lemonade, it's implied to be about her father and/or her husband's possible infidelities and her feelings of betrayal, anger, apathy, and eventually forgiveness.

At almost any given time she is probably Website/{{Tumblr}}'s resident MemeticBadass, and she's certainly one of the biggest pop-culture feminist icons of her time, along with EmmaWatson and JenniferLawrence.

* LadyLand: She somewhat invoked this during her Super Bowl performance, with her dancers and backup band, (known as Suga Mama, after a song on her album "B'Day") being solely female. She said she got the idea to do it during rehearsals... then had to delicately break it to the male members of her band.
