Using the surprise method for which over the past few years she has become notorious, Beyoncé release a bass banging single titled “Formation.” The track was accompanied by a controversial video to complement the song’s “explicit lyrics,” as stated in the beginning, setting the tone and warning her audience of the things they were about to hear. Fans respond via Twitter to the song:
Beyoncé basically just said “I’m Black as hell, my man Black as hell, and my baby is Black as hell too. Y’all gon deal.”

Co-written by Swae Lee of rap duo Rae Sremmurd, and produced by Mike Will We Made It, we see a very socially aware Yoncé as she uses strong words, sounds, and images to convey her conviction to her Creole culture, pay tribute to Pro-Black movements like #BlackLivesMatters. We cannot forget the feminism movement, which might actually be what Beyonce is known to advocate for most.
Beyoncé had Blue with the Afro. The cops surrendering to the black boy. She was on top of a cop car AND sunk it. Black. Lives. Matter. bro.

The Beyhive (Beyonce’s extremely dedicated fan club) is always anxiously anticipating Queen Bey’s next move and they’ll definitely find her live Sunday, February 7, 2016, as one of Coldplay’s special guest at Superbowl 50 during the halftime performance. I’m sure at this point, we are all wondering if this will the song she sings, making a statement for millions to view.
