Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter has done it once again.
Just when the Beyhive’s level of anticipation and excitement was steady for her Super Bowl 50 appearance, Ms. Third Ward decided to drop Formation, an unapologetically black, twerk-worthy ode to Louisiana.
Formation is packed with high fashion and controversy. From Beyoncé’s first scene in combat boots and a printed dress from Gucci’s Spring 2016 collection while standing atop a police car.
“You haters corny with that illuminati mess. Paparazzi, catch my fly and my cocky fresh.”
To dancing in a maroon bodysuit while informing listeners that mixing “Negro with that creole make a Texas bamma,” and reminding everyone of her happiness with her “Negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils.”
“My daddy Alabama, my ma Louisiana.”
She then proceeded to nod her head like “that bitch” in Givenchy as Big Freedia states “I did not come to play witchu’ hoes. I came to slay, bitch! I like cornbread and collard greens, bitch! Oh, yes. You besta believe it!”
“I’m so reckless when I rocky my Givenchy dress.”
An empty pool was blessed with Beyoncé’s presence as she and her dancers performed in head-to-toe Gucci. In true magical black girl form, Bey had braids down to her ass and each dancer sported gravity defying afros.
“Earned all this money, but they never take the country out me. I got hot sauce in my bag. Swag.”
A sunny day and an empty parking lot coordinated perfectly with the light wash and dark wash chambray looks Bey and her dancers wore in this scene.
“Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation. Prove to me you got some coordination. Slay trick, or you get eliminated.”
And to make things even better, Formation was styled by Marni Stenofonte & Shiona Turini and directed by Melina Matsoukas. *swoons*
