I attended my first ever Beyoncé concert last Sunday; a highly welcome part- birthday present from my Aunt who secured three Golden Circle tickets to the Formation Tour at Wembley. So maybe I'll be working the rest of summer to pay her back, but still, you don't say 'no' to Beyoncé tickets.
Ordinarily, a new Beyoncé track is always an earth shattering, stop-whatever-you're-doing moment. The bass thumping song Formation gives us what we've long become accustomed to from her: brazen female strength, an unapologetic embrace of female sexuality, and an unashamed love for herself and her accomplishments. But Bey reaches new political heights in this song.
