Honestly, I don't have much to say! All I can say is YAAAASSSS!!!! Beyoncé werked that stadium down. She stomped out onto that field with and in all of her Black Girl Magic Glory and the rest is history!!
Let's just say that the world should never underestimate this fierce Texas-Bama! Paying homage to her roots (and the King of Pop, the late Michael Jackson), be unapologetically Beyoncé, and further giving life (and support) to the #BlackLivesMatter Movement with a fiercely spirited Black Power anthem with lyrics that just further make you love Melanin!
While there have been some critiques and comments made about the footage used in her video and lyrics used in the song, but Formation is a song that we need right now! She's celebrating all of our shades of brown, our physical features that mainstream media tries to tell us is not classic beauty. But, sorry mainstream media, but you've been overruled by Beyoncé, the Beyhive, and by the rest of Black America! We are beautiful, we are magical, and to love our culture and our contributions, you should show love for us too!
Lastly, let's just add in that the video goes beyond further preaching for a movement. Beyoncé is starting a fund to aid in the Flint water crisis relief and Jay-Z is $1.5 Million to Black Lives Matter and other social justice groups.
