Like her sister Beyonce's wildly popular visual album Lemonade, Knowles' music videos look like performance art pieces filled with beautiful costumes and choreography. In one scene from "Cranes in the Sky," Knowles is seen wearing nothing but gold body paint while seated on the side of a mountain.

During an interview for Saint Heron conducted by her mother, Tina Lawson, and writer Judnick Mayard, Knowles explained the meaning behind "Don't Touch My Hair," stating that her "hair is incredibly spiritual, and, energetically, it really encompasses and expresses who we are."

Seat At the Table has already received quite a bit of critical acclaim since its release on Friday, with several celebrities tweeting out their praises of the album, Beyonce included. "Congrats to my sister on creating this beautiful work of art," Queen Bey Instagrammed. "I could not be more proud of you @saintrecords."

Lena Dunham, Calvin Harris, Missy Elliott and Rashida Jones also spoke out on social media in support of Seat At the Table.
