Queen Bey is Back with Formation

7 Feb

If you hadn’t heard, Beyonce released a surprise song/video on Saturday just in time for her Super Bowl Sunday 2016 half-time performance alongside ColdPlay.

There are so many things to unpack in Formation — self-love, black empowerment, female empowerment, the pursuit of the capitalist dream, and the devaluation of black life in the forms of police brutality and the horrific devastation that was Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

I salute Beyonce for bringing to attention to these critical issues and the song definitely has radio appeal. Although I’m not the biggest Beyonce fan, I can certainly appreciate her boldness as she matures and blossoms. No doubt Formation will prove to be the black girl anthem for years to come.

And because this is America where everyone’s trying to get paid, there are t-shirts already for sell referencing the song lyrics.  I won’t front, they cute.

Watch Queen Bey Slay…
