No one could possibly be blamed for missing out on the slew of incredible cameos tucked within Beyoncé's powerhouse visual album, Lemonade; not when the world was far too busy being floored by the singer's triumphant tribute to black women, mixed with a deeply personal confessional.

Having first aired as a special on HBO, 23 April; the whole thing's now dropped on Tidal, meaning fans can now carefully return to the hour-long special and pick out the wide variety of recognisable faces: from family (including her mother Tina Knowles), up-and-coming stars Zendaya and Amandla Stenberg, ballerinas and restaurant owners, to the mothers of victims of police brutality.

Though she doesn't make a personal appearance in the work, poet Warsan Shire's words are filtered throughout the visual album; bringing a haunting, beautiful quality to its deeply reflective tone.
