The Symbolism of Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video

It was just yesterday when Texas bama, Bey dropped another world stopping track, and this one came with a video to match. Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video took social media by surprise with its bass bumping ratchetivity, but that’s not all it did.
The song and video’s pro-black message is so powerful you can’t miss it, as Bey herself says “I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros”, and continues to say “I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils.” Queen Bey also goes on the record to shut down all those false illuminati rumors, because she’s tired of y’all corny folks making allegations on her success.
The Mike Will Made It-produced single already has its own line of clothing and accessories on Beyoncé’s official website. The items include many quotable lyrics from ‘Formation’ such as a phone case that says, “You that b**** when you cause all of this conversation.”
Even though the year has just begun we can definitely say that ‘Formation’ is the pro-black anthem of the year, and also that Bey got hot sauce in her bag, swag!
