Beyonce Reps New Orleans and Repeatedly Slays in ‘Formation’ Video
Guess who’s back? Beyonce has shocked the world again by dropping a new song and video without warning. On Saturday (Feb. 6), Queen Bey dropped the single and video for “Formation.” The clip marks the R&B diva’s first solo material since “7/11” back in 2014.
Beyonce stop the world today and told her Beyhive (aka “her fans”) to fall into “Formation” when she released the video. The clip is now a trending topic on Twitter. In the visual,
Queen King Bey wants everyone to know “ya’ll haters corny with that Illuminati mess.”
But above all, the pop-heavy beat is the perfect combination of “hood,” “creole” and a “Texas bama” coming together with the like of entertainment’s elite and that guy Bill Gates. In fact, let Beyonce tell it and she “just might be a Black Bill Gates in the making.”
Elsewhere, Beyonce and her backup dancers take viewers on a ride through the gritty streets of post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. The squad is dancing in the parking lot of a mini-mall, a mansion and at a recreation center swimming pool.
The highlight of the clip is when Beyonce baptizes herself in the swampy waters of New Orleans on top of a NOPD squad car.
Overall, Beyonce slays repeatedly in this visually stunning video that awards viewers with plenty of replay value.
