Following Beyoncé's album release the musical event of the year on Saturday, it was widely understood that Lemonade — the songs and the accompanying film that premiered on HBO — would only be available for the foreseeable future on the subscription streaming service Tidal (of which Bey is a part owner). Those who didn't have an account, well, they were out of luck.

But in a surprise for many fans at midnight last night, the album in its entirety — film and all — is now available on iTunes for $17.99. While streaming the album is still only available on Tidal (sorry, Apple Music and Spotify fans), the New York Times reported last night that Amazon will also soon sell digital and physical versions of the album. Lemonade for all!
