Beyoncé gave us another amazing visual album with Black is King, but this isn’t the first amazing project that mixes music and breathtaking visuals into one. Once you’re done listening to Queen Bey’s latest masterpiece, make sure to check out these three albums.

Beyoncé — Lemonade

Black is King isn’t Beyoncé’s first visual album, and she’s pretty familiar with this concept. Her eponymous fifth studio album from 2013 was also accompanied by a series of short films, but its follow-up Lemonade remains the most iconic visual album of the 21st century so far.

Solange — When I Get Home

Beyoncé isn’t even the only person in her family with an amazing visual album under her belt. Solange’s latest LP When I Get Home was accompanied by a short film of the same name, which connected all of the songs in one continuous narrative.

Janelle Monáe — Dirty Computer

Janelle Monáe’s career-defining record Dirty Computer was followed by a 46-minute narrative film of the same name. This project was a true visual feast and did an amazing job tying all the songs together into one cohesive unit.
