In addition to parts of Malcolm X’s “Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?” speech and poet Warshan Shire’s spoken-word album Warsan Versus Melancholy (The Seven Stages of Being Lonely), lyrical and instrumental samples decorate the Lemonade sound. Here are a few of the known samples utilized: the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Maps” sampled on “Hold Up”; Soulja Boy’s “Turn My Swag On” on “Hold Up”; Andy Williams’s “Can’t Get Used to Losing You” on “Hold Up”; Led Zepplin’s “When The Levee Breaks” on “Don’t Hurt Yourself”; Isaac Hayes’s “Walk On By” on “6 Inch”; Kaleidoscope’s “Let Me Try” on “Freedom,” and Outkast “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” on “All Night.”
