Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Picks Up Four Emmy Nominations

Big-N-Mage + Music | 2016 Emmy Awards nominations


The 2016 Emmy Awards nominations are in, and for the 16th straight year, HBO is the top-nominated network with a total of 94 nods. And while a few music-related entities are among the potential honorees -- Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Lyon character from Fox hit Empire was one; Broadway star Audra McDonald as Billie Holliday in HBO film Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill another -- Beyonce's HBO special/"visual album" Lemonadewas shut out of the major categories.
Lemonade was, however, nominated four times. First, in the category Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special; Hannah Beachler (Production Designer), Chris Britt (Art Director) and Kim Murphy (Set Decorator) are the people who stand to receive the award if the special wins against designers for Grease: LiveHe Named Me Malala, the Oscars broadcast and The Wiz Live.
Second, Beyonce herself, alongside director Kahlil Joseph, are nominated in the Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special category. The duo are up against Grease: Live, the Grammy Awards broadcast, the Kennedy Center Honors broadcast and live specials from Adele and Amy Schumer. Third, editor Bill Yukich is up for Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming, against episodes of Drunk History, Conan,Key & Peele and Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver.
And finally, Lemonade as a whole has been nominated in the Outstanding Variety Special category, up against Adele Live In New York CityAmy Schumer: Live At The Apollo, The Kennedy Center Honors and The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special. The two nominations (for directing and for the special as a whole) bring Beyonce's total number of nominations to four through the years; previously she was nominated in 2013 for her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, and again in 2015 for her On The Run tour documentary alongside husband Jay Z.
Update (1:28 pm): An earlier version of this story mis-stated that Lemonade had been released outside of the Emmys' eligibility period. That was based from the L.A.-based Emmy nominations eligibiltity period, which runs the duration of 2015; the Primetime Emmys nominations period runs June 1, 2015 - May 31, 2016. The article has been updated to reflect the change.

"What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you"
Following her HBO special of the same name, Beyonce dropped her highly anticipated sixth studio album, Lemonade, Saturday night (April 23), exclusively on Tidal. The songs, along with the Southern gothic-inspired concept film, trace a relationship through the emotions that come with infidelity, from jealousy and anger to sadness and reconciliation. 
It is an emotional tour de force, and Billboard.com will have all kinds of analysis coming in the next few days (check this deep dive into the credits on Lemonade here).
Below, check out 10 powerful lyrics about cheating that immediately stood out to us. Break one of these out the next time a friend tells you her significant other is cheating on them.  
1. "You can taste the dishonesty/ it's on your breath"
"Pray You Catch Me"
2. "Middle fingers up, put them hands high/ “Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye/ Tell him, boy, bye, middle fingers up/ I ain’t thinking ‘bout you"
"Sorry"
3. "What's worse, looking jealous or crazy? Jealous or crazy? / More like being walked all over lately, walked all over lately, I'd rather be crazy"
"Hold Up"
4. "Can't you see there's no other man above you / What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you"
"Hold Up"
5. "I am the dragon breathing fire / Beautiful man, I'm the lion / Beautiful man, I know you're lying/ I am not broken, I'm not crying"
"Don't Hurt Yourself"
6. "You know I give you life / If you try this shit again you're gonna lose your wife"
"Don't Hurt Yourself"
7. "Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home / Today I regret the night I put that ring on / He always got them f--king excuses"
"Sorry"
8."My daddy warned me about men like you / He said, "Baby girl, he's playing you"
"Daddy Lessons"
9. "Ten times out of nine, I know you're lying / 
But nine times outta ten, I know you're trying"
"Love Drought"
10. "Found the truth beneath your lies
 / And true love never has to hide"
"All Night"

The credits for Beyonce's Lemonade album are some 3,105 words long, and simply getting through them is an eye-straining slog. But the album features a list of collaborators, samples, interpolations, "elements of" and more that illustrates not just the singer's peerless ability to work with anyone she wants, but also the diversity of her influences and tastes. Collaborators range from stars like The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar and hitmakers such as Diplo and Mike Will Made-It along with lower-on-the-radar artists including Melo-X, Johnny Coffer and Midian Mathers (apparently no relation to Eminem). It also indicates the vast number of people who have been able to keep quiet -- well, mostly -- in the many months it took for complete the album. Following are the results of 90-odd minutes of listening and rooting around in the liner notes -- Billboard will have a more thorough treatment soon.
The album features a murderer's row of featured artists -- Lamar, The Weeknd, Jack White and British electro crooner James Blake -- and producers, with a different set of collaborators on nearly every track. The boldface names include Diplo (two tracks including "Hold Up"); hip-hop kingpins Mike Will Made It (who's worked with artists from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne to Miley Cyrus), Mike Dean (Kanye WestScarface, many Texas rappers), Ben Billions (The Weeknd, Rick Ross) and Just Blaze (Jay Z,T.I.); along with Boots (FKA TwigsRun the Jewels), Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig (with Diplo on "Hold Up") and Dannyboystyles (The Weeknd, UGK).
Lesser known are singer-songwriter and frequent featured singer Wynter Gordon, Brooklyn songwriter Kevin Garrett, rapper Melo-X, B's musical director Derek Dixie, Johnny Coffer and Vincent Berry II. Also in the mix, singing backing vocals on the Jack White collaboration "Don’t Hurt Yourself," is White collaborator and solo artist Ruby Amanfu. 
Along with many of the above, the collaborating songwriters include Father John Misty(aka Joshua Tillman) and Emile Haynie (Eminem, Kanye WestIce Cube), who teamed up with Diplo and Koenig on "Hold Up"; Rae Sremmurd's Khalif Brown and collaborator Asheton Hogan (who's also worked with Tinashe and Rick Ross) on "Formation"; Weeknd associate Belly and Terius "The-Dream" Nash amid the 12 songwriters on The Weeknd collaboration "6 Inch"; and elsewhere spoken-word artist Malik Yusef (Kanye West), rapper IB3 (aka Ingrid Burley), Kevin Cossum (Mary J. BligeKeri Hilson), Atlanta vets R. City (Timothy and Theron Thomas), Jonathan Coffer, Carla Williams and Midian Mathers.
But possibly most fascinating of all is the list of samples, interpolations and "contains elements of"s. Among them is "Hold Up," which in addition to the many collaborators above also incorporates the 1963 hit "Can't Get Used to Losing You" (originally sung by crooner Andy Williams and later covered by The English Beat); Soulja Boy's " “Turn My Swag On”," and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' 2003 hit "Maps." Another choice collision takes place in "6 Inch," which features portions of indie titans Animal Collective's 2009 song "My Girls" along with Isaac Hayes' 1969 cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic "Walk on By," originally a hit for Dionne Warwick five years earlier. 
Elsewhere, "Don’t Hurt Yourself" incorporates a (probably very pricey) sample from Led Zeppelin's “When The Levee Breaks"; the Kendrick Lamar-featuring "Freedom" includes elements of 1960s psychedelic group Kaleidoscope's "Let Me Try" along with two field recordings from American music excavator Alan Lomax: “Collection Speech/ Unidentified Lining Hymn,” performed by Reverend R.C. Crenshaw, and “Stewball” from "Prisoner 22” at Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. Finally, "All Night" includes the unmistakable horn section from OutKast's 1998 classic “Spottieottiedopaliscious.”
The full credits are listed below. Corrections are welcome -- we're only human, which is more than we can say for Queen Bey ...

Collaborators range from stars like The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar and hitmakers such as Diplo and Mike Will Made-It along with lower-on-the-radar artists including Melo-X, Johnny Coffer and Midian Mathers (apparently no relation to Eminem). It also indicates the vast number of people who have been able to keep quiet -- well, mostly -- in the many months it took for complete the album. Following are the results of 90-odd minutes of listening and rooting around in the liner notes -- Billboard will have a more thorough treatment soon.
The album features a murderer's row of featured artists -- Lamar, The Weeknd, Jack White and British electro crooner James Blake -- and producers, with a different set of collaborators on nearly every track. The boldface names include Diplo (two tracks including "Hold Up"); hip-hop kingpins Mike Will Made It (who's worked with artists from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne to Miley Cyrus), Mike Dean (Kanye WestScarface, many Texas rappers), Ben Billions (The Weeknd, Rick Ross) and Just Blaze (Jay Z,T.I.); along with Boots (FKA TwigsRun the Jewels), Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig (with Diplo on "Hold Up") and Dannyboystyles (The Weeknd, UGK).
Lesser known are singer-songwriter and frequent featured singer Wynter Gordon, Brooklyn songwriter Kevin Garrett, rapper Melo-X, B's musical director Derek Dixie, Johnny Coffer and Vincent Berry II. Also in the mix, singing backing vocals on the Jack White collaboration "Don’t Hurt Yourself," is White collaborator and solo artist Ruby Amanfu. 
Along with many of the above, the collaborating songwriters include Father John Misty(aka Joshua Tillman) and Emile Haynie (Eminem, Kanye WestIce Cube), who teamed up with Diplo and Koenig on "Hold Up"; Rae Sremmurd's Khalif Brown and collaborator Asheton Hogan (who's also worked with Tinashe and Rick Ross) on "Formation"; Weeknd associate Belly and Terius "The-Dream" Nash amid the 12 songwriters on The Weeknd collaboration "6 Inch"; and elsewhere spoken-word artist Malik Yusef (Kanye West), rapper IB3 (aka Ingrid Burley), Kevin Cossum (Mary J. BligeKeri Hilson), Atlanta vets R. City (Timothy and Theron Thomas), Jonathan Coffer, Carla Williams and Midian Mathers.
But possibly most fascinating of all is the list of samples, interpolations and "contains elements of"s. Among them is "Hold Up," which in addition to the many collaborators above also incorporates the 1963 hit "Can't Get Used to Losing You" (originally sung by crooner Andy Williams and later covered by The English Beat); Soulja Boy's " “Turn My Swag On”," and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' 2003 hit "Maps." Another choice collision takes place in "6 Inch," which features portions of indie titans Animal Collective's 2009 song "My Girls" along with Isaac Hayes' 1969 cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic "Walk on By," originally a hit for Dionne Warwick five years earlier. 
Elsewhere, "Don’t Hurt Yourself" incorporates a (probably very pricey) sample from Led Zeppelin's “When The Levee Breaks"; the Kendrick Lamar-featuring "Freedom" includes elements of 1960s psychedelic group Kaleidoscope's "Let Me Try" along with two field recordings from American music excavator Alan Lomax: “Collection Speech/ Unidentified Lining Hymn,” performed by Reverend R.C. Crenshaw, and “Stewball” from "Prisoner 22” at Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. Finally, "All Night" includes the unmistakable horn section from OutKast's 1998 classic “Spottieottiedopaliscious.”
The full credits are listed below. Corrections are welcome -- we're only human, which is more than we can say for Queen Bey ...
