Beyonce Drops NOLA Video


Beyoncé dropped a surprise video on Saturday (2.06) afternoon. Just in time for Mardi Gras, “Formation” is all about New Orleans. The video opens with a NOPD cruiser sinking into flood waters. From there, the audience catches glimpses of second lines, shotgun houses, the Claiborne Overpass, drum majors, and its of the Queen Bey.

 

In case you are wondering, Beyonce justifies her ties to the Pelican State, crooning, “My ma from Louisiana” and boasting “I have hot sauce in my purse .” Somehow, a statement about police violence is also thrown in. 

 

As for the merits of the actual music, well, check it out for yourself.
