Beyonce Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines From Lemonade

After secretly releasing her self-titled album last year, we compiled a similar list of the best Beyonce quotes from that album. Now, The bey-hive is being bestowed with another gem by the queen herself.

Beyonce’s Lemonade The Visual Album, is being described as

A conceptual project based on every woman’s journey of self knowledge and healing.

It premiered on HBO at 9pm April 23rd and is executive produced by Beyoncé Knowles Carter along with key collaborations from Diplo, Ezra Koenig, Jack White, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd.

You can stream the album exclusively on TIDAL at:

Narrowing this down to a few quotes – on an album that is getting better by the second – was a huge challenge.

Below, you’ll find our favorite lyrics and lines – from an album filled with anthems – in the order on the album.

Beyonce Quotes: The Best Lyrics and Lines From Lemonade




Produced By Beyoncé & Kevin Garrett


You can taste the dishonesty it’s on your breath

as you pass it off so cavalier.


Constantly aware of it all, my lone ear pressed against the walls of your world


Prayin’ I catch you whispering, I’m prayin’ you catch me listening


Nothing else ever seems to hurt like the smile on your face

When it’s only in my memory




Produced By Ezra Koenig, Beyoncé & Diplo


Something don’t feel right

because it ain’t right

especially coming up after midnight


What’s worse, looking jealous or crazy?

Jealous or crazy?

More like walked all over lately, walked all over lately, I’d rather be crazy.


I smell your secret, and I’m not too perfect, to ever feel this worthless


Can’t you see there’s no other man above you, what a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you.


How did it come down to this, going through your call list?

I don’t wanna lose my pride but I’ma f*** me up a b****.


Know that I kept it sexy and know I kept it fun

There’s something that I’m missing maybe my head for one


It’s such a shame, you let this good love go to waste.

Beyoncé Featuring Jack White

Produced By Beyoncé & Jack White


Who the fu** do you think I am?

You ain’t married to no average bi***, boy.


And keep your money, I got my own – get a bigger smile on my face being alone


Fu** you hater, you can’t recreate her.


I am the dragon breathing fire, beautiful man, I’m the lion, beautiful man, I know you’re lying.


I smell that fragrance on your Louis V, boy, just give my fat ass a big kiss, boy Tonight I’m fuc**** up all your shi*, boy.


But I leave your love, I fu*** with you

‘Til I realize, I’m just too much for you


This is your final warning, you know I give you life, if you try this shit again, you gon’ lose your wife.





Produced By Wynter Gordon, Beyoncé & MeLo-X


He trying to roll me up, I ain’t picking up

Headed to the club, I ain’t thinking ’bout you.


Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home.

Today I regret the night I put that ring on.

He always got them fucking excuses.

I pray to the Lord you reveal what his truth is.


He only want me when I’m not on there.

He better call Becky with the good hair.

She love the way it tastes, that’s her recipe

Rushing through her veins like it’s ecstasy, oh no – The Weeknd


She too smart to crave material things

she pushing herself day and night.

She grinds from Monday to Friday works from Friday to Sunday


Oh, stars in her eyes

She fights and she sweats those sleepless nights

But she don’t mind, she loves the grind

She grinds from Monday to Friday

Works from Friday to Sunday

Produced By Beyoncé


Came into this world, Daddy’s little girl and daddy made a soldier out of me.


With his gun, with his head held high

He told me not to cry

Oh, my daddy said shoot


Daddy made me fight

It wasn’t always right

But he said girl it’s your second amendment, oh, oh, oh


He always played it cool

But daddy was no fool

And right before he died he said remember


My daddy warned me about men like you

He said, “Baby girl, he’s playing you.”

Produced By Beyoncé & Mike Dean


Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying

But nine times outta ten, I know you’re trying

So I’m trying to be fair


It’s just floating in the air, lookie there

Are you aware you’re my lifeline, are you tryna kill me?


I don’t care about the lights or the beams

Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me

Only way to go is up, skin thick, too tough


Nine times out of ten, I’m in my feelings

But ten times out of nine, I’m only human

Tell me, what did I do wrong?


I always paid attention, been devoted

Tell me, what did I do wrong?

Oh, already asked that, my bad

But you my lifeline, think you tryna kill me?

If I wasn’t Bey, would you still feel me?

Produced By Vincent Berry II & Beyoncé


We built sand castles that washed away

I made you cry when I walked away


And although I promised that I couldn’t stay, baby

Every promise don’t work out that way, oh, babe


Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter

Pictures snatched out the frame

Bitch, I scratched out your name and your face

What is it about you that I can’t erase, baby?




Featuring James Blake

Produced By Beyoncé & James Blake


Best foot first just in case

When we made our way ’til now


It’s time to listen, it’s time to fight


I love you more than this job please don’t work for me


Go back to your sleep in your favorite spot just next to me





Featuring Kendrick Lamar

Produced By Just Blaze, Beyoncé & Jonny Coffer

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on


Lord forgive me, I’ve been running

Running blind in truth


I’m telling these tears, “Go and fall away, fall away”

May the last one burn into flames


I break chains all by myself

Won’t let my freedom rot in hell


Hey! I’ma keep running

Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves


Eight blocks left, death is around the corner

Seven misleadin’ statements ’bout my persona – Kendrick Lamar

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on


But mama don’t cry for me, ride for me

Try for me, live for me

Breathe for me, sing for me

Honestly guidin’ me

I could be more than I gotta be – Kendrick Lamar


I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to cool myself off. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade – Hattie Mae White

Produced By Beyoncé & Diplo


Found the truth beneath your lies

And true love never has to hide


True love never has to hide

I’ll trade your broken wings for mine


I’ve seen your scars and kissed your crime


Our love was stronger than your pride

Beyond your darkness, I’m your light


They say true love’s the greatest weapon

To win the war caused by pain, pain

But every diamond has imperfections

But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away


Oh nothing real can be threatened

True love breathes salvation back into me


A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on




Produced By Beyoncé & Mike WiLL Made It


Bitch, I’m back by popular demand


I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils

Earned all this money but they never take the country out me

I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag


If he hit it right, I might take him on a flight on my chopper, cause I slay

Drop him off at the mall, let him buy some J’s, let him shop up, cause I slay

I twirl on them haters, albino alligators

El Camino with the seat low, sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser
