New Beyonce Music Video 'Formation' Is Her Most Powerful Yet
The video was a surprise to the public, released just 24 hours before the singer's Super Bowl 50 performance.
Queen Bey has done it once again.
Just 24 hours prior to her Super Bowl 50 performance, Beyonce has fans in shock and awe with a brand new song and music video entitled "Formation."
In the video, 'Yonce can be seen lounging atop a floating New Orleans police vehicle, swathed in striking maroon garb, and singing the praises of daughter Blue Ivy Carter, who also has a fabulous cameo.
The song is being hailed as the ultimate power anthem; a testament to all the things that Beyonce considers to define her, and Black Americans as a whole.
"'Formation' is a booming meditation on black identity, the validity and transience of a person’s roots and history, and the crushing interplay between power and helplessness, agency and victimization. Bask in it. Dance to it. Listen to it. But, for the love of god, hear it."
Blue Ivy (center) is certainly a big highlight, given that this is her first major spotlight in her parents' work. She's also adorable, so that helps. That helps a lot.
Here's the single's art:
After its release, rumors circulated that Beyonce would perform "Formation" during the Super Bowl. ET is now reporting that the rumors are legitimate.
To see this live would be something like a dream, so here's hoping the facts are with us.
