Beyonce "Lemonade" Visual Album

Beyonce goes very big with Lemonade, a visual album that mixes the personal with the universal with the political in a nearly hourlong special consisting of poetry, music and visuals.

In terms of the visual, the biggest stamp seems to come from director Khalil Joseph, but the longform also has set-pieces (aka: songs) directed by Jonas Akerlund,, Melina Matsoukas, Jonas Akerlund, Mark Romanek, Todd Tourso and Dikayl Rimmasch.

Robin Thicke "Get Her Back" (Jonas Akerlund, dir.)

Can Robin Thicke ichat his way back into estranged wife Paula Patton's heart? Does looking battered and bruised and nude (from the waist up) in the video help the cause? What about the similarly naked woman that's here?

Such are the blurred lines in what's promised to be the opening salvo for new album Paula, which maybe you'll find to be the most romantic "I want her back" adventure since Lloyd Dobler held that Boombox aloft.
