A Comprehensive Ranking of Beyonce’s Most Culturally Relevant Albums

“An artist’s duty… is to reflect the times.”

Bey’s most recent album truly reflected the times, detailing the hardship that Black women constantly travail in New Jim Crow America. Beyonce’s love letter to America’s most disrespected demographic has made a lasting impact in America both sonically and culturally. Beyonce stayed true to herself, despite the anticipated backlash of her most critical work’s subject matter. Lemonade is the album that made me a Beyoncè Stan. I’m NOT part of the beehive, but I fully embrace Queen Bey now because she stopped holding back!

Her Debut Album
Lemonade!

Thank God she’s continuing to grow as an artist, embodying Nina Simone’s call for artists to reflect the times. Beyonce is ever evolving.
