Beyoncé's Lemonade reign isn't quite over yet - with the artist dropping a stand-alone video for the finale track off this year's groundbreaking visual album. 

'All Night' marked the closing chapter of Lemonade's emotional journey, subtitled 'Redemption'; a soft, reflective song that seems to celebrate forgiveness, acceptance, and a sense of unity - an uplifting last addition before the album's encore track 'Formation'.

The video flicks from black-and-white to colour as the singer performs poetry by Warsan Shire, paying tribute to the heritage of black culture through its picturesque settings and litany of recognisable faces - such as Zendaya and The Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg - coming together in a sense of celebration. 

The track also features plenty of Beyoncé's own home videos; from her and Jay Z's wedding day to footage of the couple with daughter Blue Ivy. 

'All Night' is the fourth video Beyoncé has released as a stand-alone entity following 'Formation', 'Sorry', and 'Hold Up'. 

What were the best albums of 2016?

Lemonade's record-breaking release saw Beyoncé become the first artist in the chart's history to have their first six studio albums debut at number one, the first female to chart 12 or more songs on the US Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, and have the most-streamed album in a single week by any female artist.
