We’ve waited for weeks in anticipation of Super Bowl 50. No, not for the game– for the Halftime Show. And a show it was.
On the eve of her much anticipated sixth studio album, Beyoncé hit the stage introduced by an all woman Black Panther Party gang of backup dancers and performed “Formation”. Marching, dancing and putting on a show for the gawds, her portion was short and sweet.
Then was the epic dance off between her squad and Bruno Mars that will go down in the history books as the fliest girls vs boys dance off in history. Queen Bey approached her counterpart with the confident swag we love her for, but Mars definitely held his own.
Meeting in the middle with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, the separate performances became one, with an overarching theme of love. What was suppose to be an evening focused around one person, became an example of Beyoncé’s prowess to mesh with equally talented artists– in any venue.
She was beautiful, seemed incredibly gracious about the opportunity, and pure #Magic.
On Saturday, the 34-year-old released what we can expect to be the first single off her upcoming album. While there is no exact release date set, this is her last contractually obligated album with Columbia Records.
Her Formation World Tour was announced after the broadcast, tickets go on sale Feb 16.
