Beyoncé Surprises with New Song, Video, Red Lobster One-Liner
For the first time in more than a year, Beyoncé has released new music — she surprised fans a day before her scheduled appearance with Coldplay in Super Bowl 50's halftime show by dropping "Formation."
"Formation" is available to stream exclusively via Tidal, Jay-Z's music venture, in which Beyoncé is one of many celebrity investors.
The aggressive, gritty track, whose video presents Beyoncé as a sort of ostentatious Queen of New Orleans (with a Blue Ivy cameo!), is already proving to be one of the most quotable songs in years. Within seconds of its release, references to lines like "I got hot sauce in my bag" and "I twirl on them haters" had invaded social media.
