We’re amped about this … but we’re going to need to sell some lemonade to afford one.
OK, Beyhive, we know you care: Beyoncé announced Tuesday that she’s dropping an incredible box set inspired by her ineffably gorgeous album “Lemonade.”
“Lemonade” celebrated its anniversary on April 23, but the limited-edition collectors’ edition box set is clearly created for those who want to celebrate it forever.
Aptly called the “How To Make Lemonade Box Set,” it retails for a cool $300 and offers a “comprehensive look at Beyoncé’s ‘LEMONADE’ journey.”
It includes a copy of “Lemonade” on vinyl, a numbered 600-page coffee table book with “hundreds of never-before-seen photos” from the making of the album, and audio and visual album downloads.
The massive book features a foreword from Michael Eric Dyson, poetry by Warsan Shire and Beyoncé’s personal writing and lyrics interspersed throughout.
The $300 price tag is pretty steep, but it is a collectors’ item. Though, Beanie Babies were once considered “collectors’ items” too …We’d say we’re conflicted, but let’s be real: We want one of these. (Courtesy of HuffPost)

People are complaining about a $300 Beyonce ‘Lemonade’ box set? It’s BEYONCE. She gave us life. Eat ramen for a few months and shut up.
