Beyoncé managed to overshadow Coldplay at their own Super Bowl show on Sunday night, with her performance of ‘Formation’, which had debuted online just hours earlier.
The track and its video won instant praise from fans and critics, including The Daily Beast’s Kevin Fallon, who hailed it as “a fiery black power anthem and call to arms.”
Much has also been said about the release’s timing, with The New York Times’ critic writing: “I think she wants us to know that even though she's headlining a mainstream event like the Super Bowl, she has opinions and isn't afraid to share them, nor is she afraid to do it on a national and global scale."
