Ed Sheeran released his new single " Perfect Duet" with Beyonce. The lovesome ballad is a refreshing cut that oozes romance and beauty. The two collaboratively wrote and performed the duet produced by Ed and Will Hicks. Mastering Engineers Stuart Hawks, Joe Rubel and acoustic guitarists Hammond Organ and John Tilley created a wonderful track. Tony Maserati mixed the song. Listen to the exclusive Tidal release and let me know what you think.
Queen Beyonce is #1 ! Her new album "LEMONADE" released on Tidal is number one on the Top 200 Billboard charts. B definitely knows how to make the world stop . LEMONADE is the perfect mixture of sweet, cold, sharpness, refreshment, and cohesion.
Her visual album for Lemonade premiered on HBO April 23, 2016 . The 1:50 :05 visual showed 11 various stages of growth in life
These are trials we all face at some point in life. No matter who we are or where we're from we are all are human . Beyonce is definitely serving life, power, and art in this project. She also included cameos from some very powerful young females including Chloe & Halle, Winnie Harlow, Zendaya, Serena Williams, Quazanae Wallace, Ballerina Michaela DePrince, Ava Clark, and Amandla Sternberg, to name a few. She also included 90 year old Civil Rights activist Leah Chase . Her father, husband Jay-Z, and daughter Blu Ivy also appeared in the project. Beyonce and Jay Z have also stood up for change, love, and the Black Lives Matter movement. B, also honored Sybrina Fulton mother of Trayvon Martin , Michael Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden by placing them in the video as well. I love the album and the film. Beyonce also took the time to credit every person that helped with "LEMONADE" which is absolutely amazing. The album is inspiring and important ! #LEMONADE
I was so moved by Beyonce's album I wrote this poem. I''m so excited to get to see her Formation World Tour in Philadelphia 6/5
What is art with out FREEDOM?
What is LOVE with out a DROUGHT?
PRAY YOU CATCH ME is what LEMONADE is all about.
FORMATION is power.
You can HOLD UP, SANDCASTLES in a flood.
SORRY but she's never giving up !
6 INCH heels to flip flops
She still stands as queen.
ALL NIGHT, all day and everything in between
DADDY LESSONS made her strong
Fast FORWARD the scene
DON'T HURT YOURSELF Tryna Boycott.
BEYONCE is here and living the dream!!!

Political activist, scholar, and author Angela Davis once said "Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation". Beyonce's new song and video "Formation" is not just art. The song sends a very strong message that high lights women's rights, injustice against minorities, and financial freedom. Of course Queen B always surprises us. Remember when she released her "Beyonce" album in 2013? She made the world stop and Yonce has done it again. Her song/video "Formation" released on TIDAL a day before her Pepsi Superbowl Halftime performance. Her progressive art has gained a lot of buzz and a lot of conversation. Beyonce's video featured her beautiful daughter Blu Ivy , the voice of Messy Mya ( whom was shot and killed by police, at the age of 22) and rapper Big Freedia. In the New Orleans based video . Some of her scenes depict the devastation of Hurricane Katrina , Mardi Gras, a young black child in a hoodie dancing, a sign that says stop shooting us, a newspaper displaying Martin Luther King which reads "More Than A Dreamer" , and her on top of a police car. She and her dancers payed homage to the Black Panthers as they dressed in all black leather and berets with their fist in the air. Beyonce's performance was super and she used her artistic abilities and platform to propel people toward social emancipation as Angela Davis said. For those of you that don't know what social emancipation it's the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation. Beyonce speaks on working hard, grinding until she owns it. So let's get in formation ( which means together) and get information (because knowledge is power) . After Beyonce's performance at the Superbowl she announced her "The Formation World Tour". l am so excited and I can't wait to see her show in Philadelphia June 5,2016. Get your tickets (here) and watch the "Formation" video below.
