I interrupt your regularly scheduled natural hair programming to bring you a slay exclusive.
“Bitch I’m back. By popular demand”
Just when we were finally getting our lives together, Beyonce’ returned our backs to a full bend + snatched our weave from the root. Formation, released yesterday, is the political, ethnic and unapologetic new anthem of 2016.
This song and video are so important because they displays the black experience, black culture, and black excellence. People are so quick to say that Beyonce’ is white washed because of her straight, blonde hair and light skin, and she finally killed all of this noise with the personification of #BlackGirlMagic.
Time and time again Bey tells the world “Don’t come for me unless I send for you” and people just don’t learn. 2016 has been dubbed the year of the clap back + the Queen is no exception.
- White gowns giving us Young Nettie from The Color Purple/ Daughters of Dust realness
- “stop shooting us” spray painted on the wall
- Afros, hot sauce, and corn bread with collard greens
- Negro mixed with Creole
Who ain’t black?
As one of my FB friends Kim put it
“Beyoncé just told and showed y’all that she is extra black on today and she don’t give a damn what y’all got to say because her baby’s fro is on point, her baby daddy/husband ain’t goin nowhere, her coins are only increasing AND she ain’t eatin nobody’s fried chicken without hot sauce. Whew! Happy BHM lol.”
“I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils.”
Haters are gonna find some way to make this new release bad, but I have no time. Bey made another hit girl power jam while simultaneously empowering her people. If you can’t clap for that go and find you a seat. Let me know what you though in the comments below. Also what was your favorite part?
