Beyonce Black Parade, the latest single from the Queen dropped on us late in the day Friday that had us all dancing and celebrating Black power, beauty, history and resilience!
“Being Black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right,” and included a directory Black-owned businesses to support.”-Bey
We were all going about our day celebrating Juneteenth, marching, holding rallies, cooking and just having good fellowship with one another and then BOOM! News broke that Bey was up to her old tricks….. quiet, but BOLDY she dropped a banger.
And not just any banger, a banger that is so Black it will definitely be the new Black anthem played all summer long.
Co-written with Jay-Z and other collaborators, the single takes a journey through the Black diaspora, from the Yoruba people of Western Africa and their goddess Yemaya to the singer’s Houston, Texas hometown.
While some of us are ready to leave the U.S. Bey said nah she going back to the South where her roots ain’t watered down! Aye!!!!!!
