New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Rolling Stone has chosen Beyone's album Lemonade the best album of 2016!
"Beyonce shut everyone else down this year with a soul-on-fire masterpiece, testifying about love, rage and betrayal that felt all too true in the America of 2016," comments about her sixth studio album.
The magazine adds that the album is even more significant now following the bitter presidential campaign. "It's a whole album of hurt, which is why it especially hit home after the election," says Rolling Stone.

Following David Bowie's Blackstar at No. 2, Chance the Rapper takes third place with Coloring Book, which was called "the year's finest hip-hop album." Frank Ocean's Blonde pops up at No. 5, Kanye West's The Life of Pablo arrives at No. 8, and Young Thug's Jeffery rounds out the top 10.

Queen Bey's sister Solange Knowles also made the magazine's top 15. Coming in at No. 11, the magazine calls A Seat at the Table "a love letter to self-sufficiency in the face of incredible pain."

Other notable entries include Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition (19), Rihanna's ANTI (25), A Tribe Called Quest's We Got it From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service (30), Alicia Keys' HERE (32), Maxwell's blackSUMMERS'night (40), Drake's Views (42), and Future's Evol (43).

However, not everyone was pleased with the list. Anderson .Paak's Malibu, released in January, didn't make the cut despite its critical acclaim.

Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly topped last year's list, followed by Adele's 25, and Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late.
