Azealia Banks has taken issue with Beyonce’s new visual album Lemonade, saying it’s “perpetuating that sad black female sufferance.”
Beyonce released her new album over the weekend, and it’s been met with praise from many fans and critics alike, with much attention paid to its focus on the narrative of black womanhood. Azealia Banks, though, isn’t so keen on its focus on Jay Z’s alleged infidelity.

“The heartbroken black female narrative you keep trying to push is the Antithesis of what feminism is,” she wrote on Twitter. “You been singing about this n***a for years and he still playing you. That’s not strength that’s stupidity. And it’s not what the national black women’s conversation needs right now. More pain more suffering in the face of a man.”
