This essay aims to provide a discussion of the controversies surrounding Beyoncé’s self-identification as a feminist since 2013. I trace the evolution of Beyoncé, from her 2013 self-titled record, where she identified herself as a feminist for the first time, to her most recent album, Lemonade, in order to show how Beyoncé’s feminism has become more explicitly political in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement. Also, I will analyze the reception of Beyoncé’s claim to feminism, both in the media and within Black feminism, with the former echoing the concerns of some Black feminists to question Beyoncé’s legitimacy to identify as a feminist.
