  6. Melissa Ngai says:

    Beyonce is constantly dropping her art with no prior notice because she just wants to empower others and isn’t trying to make hits. the POWER

    • Rubin Turner says:

      @Anomalous Zookeeper you’re in your own head. And im not trying to knock you for wherever that came from or why. I dont see this release as anything more than an artist being an artist. Artists as a couple. This is what they’ve done for more than two decades of their life. We cant always over simplify everything like were some grand wizards like we feel we know everything they do in using the talent and platforms they have.

    • Ebony Hutchinson says:

      Yes

    my chemical romance: _am i a joke to you?_

  9. A G says:

    I am of Indian ethnicity born in America and though I’m not black and this song is not for me when she said “let the melanin drip drip drip on y’all”, I really felt represented too since I have dark brown skin even if it wasn’t meant for me. Thanks Bey for making everyone feel special 💗 Black Lives Matter

  10. Emily AW says:

    So *this* is what the marching band was playing when my father took me into the city. I couldn’t remember because I was just a young boy at the time

  11. JJ Kern says:

    My Chemical Romance fans: what is she playing at…. OOOOOHHHH

  12. Lucas Da Costa says:

    Beyoncé really just said: “THEY GONNA NEEDA ARMY! RUBBER BULLETS BOUNCING OFF ME!”

  13. Lucas Da Costa says:

    For context: “400 billy Masa Musa” refers to king Mansa Musa of Mali who was the richest person ever recorded in history. He was BLACK!

    • Moe Ahmed says:

      @Eagles you dump Atlantic slavery was not something normal to treat humans like animals even worse change there names language intentionally make them Christian and dont let them pray even in yr church .. it was evil sick bad in any standard of history… keep making up excuses even Hitler who even asked help from American scientists about eugenics project and was impressed how far they went

    • Brandon Cole says:

      Willy McB must be great from that bubble of yours

    • I hate libtards says:

      @Eagles lmaooooo.

    • Do God says:

      @Black Snake Productions Mansa Musa lived in the 14th century, almost a millenium after western rome fell and 1500 years after greek states fell. Letting slaves gain their freedom wasn’t “invented” by Musa, you absolute moron.

    • I hate libtards says:

      @IJ Williams ok so then stop arguing “we have been oppressed for 400 years” you just admitted it was normal

    And they always have been

    [Chorus]
    Honey, come around my way, around my hive

    Ancestors on the wall, let the ghosts chit-chat
    (Ancestors on the wall, let the ghosts chit-chat)
    Hold my hands, we gon’ pray together
    Lay down, face down in the gravel
    Woo, wearin’ all attire white to the funeral
    Black love, we gon’ stay together
    Curtis Mayfield on the speaker (Woo)
    Lil’ Malcolm, Martin mixed with momma Tina (Woo)
    Need another march, lemme call Tamika (Woo)
    Need peace and reparation for my people (Woo)
    Fuck these laid edges, I’ma let it shrivel up (Shrivel up)
