Ever since Beyoncé released her visual album Lemonade last Saturday, the world hasn’t stopped talking about her apparently tumultuous marriage with Jay Z.
Though some critics say that releasing songs about infidelity on Jay Z’ Tidal is just a publicity stunt whereas others claim that Lemonade is not about infidelity but empowering black women, one thing’s for sure: Beyoncé managed to stir up the crowd and sell out stadiums around the world.
Yesterday evening, Queen Bey officially kicked off her highly-anticipated world tour Formation in Miami, paying tribute to Prince and dedicating a song to her cheating husband.
Beyoncé, known for putting an emphasis on the visual aspect of her performances, gave the audience one hell of a show without using any special effects.
Following an opening DJ set with guest appearances from celebrities such as Lil Wayne, Future, and Rick Ross, Beyoncé walked onto the stage and began singing Formation. She also performed ‘Sorry,’ which features the now-notorious lyric, ‘Becky with the good hair.’
Despite the fact that Jay Z didn’t make an appearance during the concert, Beyoncé ended the show with ‘Halo,’ saying, ‘I want to dedicate this song to my family, thank you guys for supporting me. I want to dedicate this song to my beautiful husband, I love you so much.’
The Formation tour will end on August 3, 2016, in Barcelona, Spain.
