Three years after its industry-shaking release, Beyoncé’s Lemonade is finally available for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. The release comes less than a week after the 37-year-old mega-star dropped Homecoming, the concert film depicting the planning and execution of her historic Coachella headlining performances and the first of three films that she expected to release with Netflix.

This is also actually the second album Beyoncé has released for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify this week. In conjunction with Homecoming, she released Homecoming: The Live Album, the 40-track studio album comprised of live recordings of her performances taken from her two weekends at Coachella last year. The Homecoming album also features a new song in the form of an already much-beloved cover of Frankie Beverly and Maze’s 1981 classic “Before I let Go.”

Lemonade‘s release for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music is notable considering the singer and her husband Jay-Z’s historic distaste for the streaming platform. In 2015, Jay-Z acquired Tidal, a Swedish music streaming platform and Spotify competitor. Tidal has tried to distinguish itself by providing more favorable streaming profits for artists who license their work on the platform. Prior to Monday night, it was the only place you could listen to Beyoncé’s ground-breaking sixth studio album.
