With its house music vibe, the dance track marked the return the Bey Hive (as her devout fan base is known) was more than ready for.
“Imma let down my hair/’Cause I lost my mind,” she sings. “Bey is back and I’m sleeping real good at night/The queens in the front and the doms in the back/Ain’t takin’ no flicks but the whole clique snapped.”
It also reunites Queen Bey with bounce music legend Big Freedia, who appeared on Beyoncé’s hit 2016 song “Formation.”
The superstar had announced on Monday that the song would release at midnight, but made a surprise early drop on Tidal, the streaming service owned by her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
In 2020, Beyoncé’ released the single “Black Parade” in honor of Junteenth.
The Grammy winner’s last visual album, “Black Is King,” released that same year as a companion project to her curated album “The Lion King: The Gift.” She voiced the character of Nala in Disney’s 2019 “Lion King” remake.
Her last full-length album was “Lemonade” in 2016.
