Beyoncé at Soldier Field

May 27, 2016
Queen Bey, Beyonce Formation

Beyoncé is causing a stir this year and she doesn’t give a shit. She and Bruno Mars saved the Superbowl Half-Time show with a mock dance off between the two. But the biggest highlight was Bey’s performance of her new song “Formation.” While it drove the Beyhive insane, it managed to cause some controversy due to its references to The Black Panther Movement. A few months later, the singer began teasing the mysterious Lemonade project. This past weekend she finally revealed what she’d been working on via an hour long HBO video special: a new album. Now, Beyoncé has done surprise albums before. The thing that has everyone talking is the content. Most of the songs seem to address her marriage to Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z with suggestions her cheated on her with “Becky with the good hair.” Now, both the album and the film have everyone talking including late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert. It all shows why Beyonce is Queen Bey.
