Bey surprised her legion of fans when she released her first piece of new music since 2014′s Beyoncé: Platinum Edition. Simultaneously, she dropped a video for “Formation” on her YouTube channel as well as on the digital platform TIDAL.
The video – which was shot in New Orleans – features a spoken word piece sampled from the Big Easy’s Bounce Queen, Big Freedia. It is rumored that Bey will perform two songs, including the debut of the first live performance of the new song tomorrow. This follows reports that she was seen rehearsing it during halftime show preparations. As far as our guess for the second song? We’d put our money on her recent collaboration with Coldplay, “Hymn For the Weekend.”
