As we all know only Beyonce can release a song one day and perform it live the next day.
On February 6th Beyonce dropped her new song “Formation,” but no one anticipated her performing that very song the very next day during the Super Bowl halftime show!
Since performing at the Super Bowl, everyone has been talking about Beyonce and her performance! There has been a lot of controversy not only surrounding the song itself, and her performance of it at the Super Bowl to the extent that people even gathered in protest against Beyonce because of her homage to the Black Panther Party.
So here’s the thing Beyonce doesn’t care what you think about her new song, or her homage to the Black Panther Party because she’s just going to keep on slaying… as she clearly states in “Formation.”
First things first…
Everyone regardless of their racial or cultural identity could always identify with Beyonce’s music, which generally has been geared towards women empowerment. Which everyone including myself love! However in “Formation” she decided to do something different and empower herself, and own her own cultural identity.
“My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana. You mix that Negro with that Creole make a Texas bama.”
Which upset a lot of people… but guess what she doesn’t give a f*ck!
The media can scrutinize her for not doing her daughter’s hair… but guess what SHE DOESN’T CARE she actually likes it like that!
“I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros. I like my Negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils.”
She openly admits how protective she is over Jay Z … and again doesn’t care… she actually embraces it.
“I’m so possessive, so I rock his Roc necklaces”
Beyonce is Beyonce because she built her career from the ground up and quite frankly has earned her place at the top of the industry. She knows that, I know that, you know that….
“Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper”
So sorry to burst anyone’s bubble, but Beyonce doesn’t really care what you think about her new song or her!
She owns her blackness and all the history that comes with it, which one can see through the imagery within the “Formation” music video, AND through her performance at the Super Bowl. And if you have a problem with it… so what.
