Beyoncé has released a new song via Tidal called “Formation.” The visuals are also available on the site and on the singer’s Youtube page.
The song and video seem to be a dedication to Louisiana, her Black Southern roots, and police brutality. While laying on a New Orleans police car in the middle of a body of water reminiscent of Hurricane Katrina, and dressed up like an old-fashioned Creole belle in other scenes, she sings, “My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana/You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bamma.”
Blue Ivy also makes an adorable appearance in the video.
The song is scheduled to make its official debut tomorrow night at the Super Bowl halftime show, according to LoveBScott.com.
“Formation” is available to download free on Tidal.
