WHO OTHER THAN BEYONCE A.K.A. QUEEN BEY CAN DO THIS?
Beyonce recently released a surprise 13-Track Album “Lemonade” which has more of a Southern-Type Style. A few of the featured artists on the album are Kendrick Lamar and The Weekend. I guess Queen Bey hasn’t let go of those southern roots. She speaks southern lingo all throu-out the album. “My daddy Alabama, my mom Louisiana. You mix that negro with that creole, make a Texas Bama. I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils. Earned all this money but they never take the country out me. So Bey hasn’t forgot where she came from. “Formation”
“Lemonade” is full of exotic, uplifting lyrics with Beyonce singing about her Southern heritage, freedom, feminism, slavery, strong self-worth, true love, loving herself, healing, getting cheated on…I KNOW YOU LADIES THAT HAVE BEEN CHEATED ON CAN REALLY IDENTIFY WITH THIS ALBUM. The album is very powerful and amazing.
The track “Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar, which talks about African-American rights throughout the song, Bey draws similarities between the tragic history of slavery which reflects heavily on the current state of racism in today’s society. This is astonishing because most Black Entertainers rarely touch this subject. Maybe some are scared to speak out about it, scared to speak about Black Empowerment or scared they will mess up their money flow. But big respect to Kendrick Lamar and Beyonce for taking a stand…maybe others will follow. Beyonce’s “Lemonade Album is available on Itunes
