Okay Ladies, Now Let’s Get In Formation !
Just one day before her performance at Sunday’s ‘SuperBowl50’, Beyonce dropped a new single and video ‘Formation’ ; causing an internet frenzy. The video debut on ‘Tidal’ digital streaming service, which is owned by her husband, Jay-Z .
Beyonce is no stranger to controversy and is often the topic of discussion whenever she surprisingly unveils new music unbeknownst to the beyhive masses but this new video shows a different Bey of that we’re use to.
The new video is vastly different than her previous vids, and more politicized in its visual content. As one commentator pointed out, Beyonce subtedly touches on the Katrina Aftermath, Police Brutality, African American appreciation, and Cultural Empowerment with stand out lines like ‘What Happened to New Orleans?’ , ‘I like Cornbread And Collard Greens’, ‘My Daddy Alabama, My Momma Louisiana’/ ‘You Mix That Negro With That Creole, You Make A Texas Bama’/.
In the intro vid, floating houses in the the Nola region are shown; and one in particular submerges in water, just seconds before Bey is seen standing on top of a sinking police car. By the end of the video, Bey drowns in the water, while a bystander screams, ‘Oh Man, Look At That Water’ ! After a second watch, I wondered if that was a reference to the current ‘Flint Crisis’ that has poisoned many kids and adults indefinitely as a result.
