Beyonce gets into “Formation” on the eve of her Super Bowl performance

Darius Dupins/Staff Writer

She does it again! Beyoncé releases new song, “Formation,” this evening – along with a music video. This comes just one day before the 34-year-old singer is set to take the stage with Coldplay for the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

In the video, Bey is seen in vintage looks and exudes cool and a confident stance while sitting on a police car emerged in a lake. Beyoncé doesn’t waste anytime getting to the point: “I slay,” she belts on “Formation.” This surprise release is just as assertive and oozes self-awarness like her 2008 song, “Diva.”

Not only do we hear Beyoncé celebrate her wealth but she also revels in her heritage. “My daddy Alabama, mama Louisiana,” Beyoncé sings. “Formation” also addresses any conspiracy theories about her way of life.

The music video features Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, smiling and dancing. This child has to know her mother is all encompassing. I bet she wakes up, calls North West to tell her that her mom is Beyoncé. The music video also shows Beyoncé in several dance breaks and plenty of references to how much she slays! Towards the end of the five-minute clip, a powerful image of the words “stop shooting us” is seen written on a wall.

This trap inspired sound has become a staple from the Houston native in recent years; let’s not forget the hypnotizing release, “7/11.” It’s slightly unusual but this eerie, banger resonates and before it can pounce, it rests in its “Formation.”

It’s not known if the singer will perform the song live at tomorrow’s football game, but no matter what, it’s time for Beyoncé to slay all day.
