Beyoncé surprises fans with new single

Beyoncé releases surprise new single.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

NEW YORK — Even though she’s firmly entrenched in motherhood, it’s nice to see Queen Bey is still full of surprises. On Saturday (Feb. 6), without giving fans any kind of a warning, R&B superstar Beyoncé released a profanity-laced new single with a racially-charged music video that features daughter Blue Ivy. The new song, “Formation,” is now available on Tidal as a free download. The video, by the way, makes ample references to Hurricane Katrina, police brutality and other race-related incidents.

The video also contains plenty of costume changes and choreography.

Rather than promote the single prior to release, Beyoncé posted a few images on Instagram afterwards which includes a photo of her and a group of line dancers posing in formation for the camera. Queen Bey also released the single’s cover art which shows her leaning her head out of a car window.

Watch the video and share your thoughts:


  1. Beypigy is a RACIST. Cops aren’t killing you. Your own race is killing you. She is a horrible mother having her young kid in a vile video with her middle fingers up. She forgot that white people helped New Orleans. Brad Pitt lives there and built many homes along with many other whites.

  2. This track is AWESOME!!! She is racist??? For what??? Taking pride in her roots and heritage??? For using her platform to spread a very powerful message bringing attention to injustice??? The ignorance in the world today, the levels of it… ASTOUNDING. Rock on Beyonce!!! You wanna know who is RACIST…. Dylan Roof…. The cops who killed Walter Gray, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner…. That Zimmerman low-life who killed Trayvon Martin…. #FACTS

  3. I don’t get this at all. I’m pretty open about music, their lyrics and meanings. This video may make some sense to some. Having the little daughter a part of this race/agenda/sign of the times/anger/speaking for all people video seemed inappropriate – exploitive – sad, really. Beyoncé can throw her influence around in so many directions – why would she do this kind of sleepy, disturbing video? I get that she wanted to maybe help those who have suffered (and are still suffering) from Hurrican Catriona – but how is this particular video going to do that? Not good.

  4. Mom of four beauties

    WHAT WAS THAT?!?! For all of the time she spent hiding her daughter’s face, you would think the last place her daughter would appear is in a profanity filled, trashy video with her mom holding up her middle fingers. Classy!! I wish she would’ve saved her child’s video debut for a sweet ballad or something beautiful & meaningful….NOT THIS!!

  5. This song is so unapologetically black and I’m so here for it. This is what I been missing. Beautifully edited as well. I love every costume and every message it projects.

  6. She is a fucking LEGEND!!

  7. Teneisha Gentle

    y’all so worried about how the video look and sound but if y’all understand the message she trying to give us is that black live still matter y’all fucking stupid grown the fuck up if you don’t like the music then just go to the next artist

  8. How dare a black artist take pride in themselves in black history month of all months. She should be ashamed. Racism doesn’t exist anymore in Amerikkka, what is she even talking about.

  9. Beyonce is straight dope

  10. This song sucks.

  11. I love this song. Queen Bey straight killed it at the Super bowl.

  12. Black lives do matter. I want to hear about the Black superstars going into the Ghetto’s and taking the hungry who reside there food. Get them some freaking heat. You are millionaires. ACT on It, instead of trying to incite a damn riot. They are your ppl. My white kid is going there, trying to help and I am worried every damn day about her. All while your sorry [email protected]@es do nothing but make things worse.
    They are hungry. They are cold. Everybody is not on Food stamps and getting hand outs.

  13. Speaking of Hurricane Katrina, how many black people were out in boats rescuing people? I only saw hordes of white people, most using their own equipment, time and money rescuing black people. There were so many volunteers (over 95% white) that they couldn’t get their boat trailers close enough to the water to launch because of the over abundance of volunteers jamming the roads. Yet the narrative the blacks give is one of blatant, uncaring white racism.

  14. Well, what can you expect from Beyoncé and Hollywood? This is exactly it! Why do Americans support these kind of people? Why do we help them get rich only so that they can attack us, demoralize our society, and disfranchise the masses?

  15. Why does Beyonce have armed security around her and her home? Afraid her black fans are going to do her harm? I notice that she doesn’t live in a black community either. What’s up with that?

  16. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation. lol

  17. Not sure what the buzz is about this song. It sucks. She’s done better.

  18. wish I could eat Beyonce on her period

  19. Queen Bey is just being true to her roots

    Only prejudice white people are offended

  20. Beyonce is my idol! 🙂
