It took hella long for ‘Formation‘ to grow on me! But I’m adding it to my workout playlist.
I especially like the line in the beginning of the song: “Bitch, I’m back – by popular demand.”
Hell yes. I’m training consistently lately and really feeling that! Getting these glutes and legs popping. I need to lose a good 20lbs.
I got this.
Don’t y’all love how fabulous the women in the video look? Beyonce caught a lot of slack from folks thinking she was insulting police officers. I’m sure you’ve caught at least of glimmer of the Black Lives Matter movement in the states, no? (#BlackLivesMatter?)
“I did not come to play with you hoes! I came to slay Bitch!” (Another line from the song, spoken by social media star ‘Messy Mya’ who was gunned down and killed in New Orleans in 2010.)
I’m just in a mood. I do love Beyonce for how empowered I feel listening to her songs sometimes. The lyrics make me feel like I can wear a thong bodysuit and prance around, dancing real hard. Actually, I can. And I do – behind closed doors. Haha.
Oh, I would have been ‘bama‘ too had my mother not moved me and my sisters to New York when I was six years old! We lived in Alabama near my father’s side of the family. I walked barefoot on dirt roads and rolled down steep clay hills. Made mud pies. My mother grew cabbage and collard greens in the backyard. And I witnessed a real Native American peeping tom who rode a horse and peeked through out window at night! Sidenote: I never slept in my bed again.
Basically, I’m a Brooklyn girl with country roots (South Carolina on my mother’s side.)
“Cuz I slay.” 🙂
Just in case y’all wanna bump to this too! “We slay!”
