Beyonce's latest album "Lemonade" was named on of seven winners in the Peabody Awards' Entertainment category.
The Peabody Awards announced the Entertainment winners on Thursday, with the certified platinum album "Lemonade" and its accompanying visuals being the only musical selection chosen.
"Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation," the award organizers said.
"The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture."
