Just when you thought Beyoncé done stole your life when she destroyed Lincoln Financial Field with a stop on her box office crushing Formation World Tour….she’s about to do it again this Thursday night with round two.
While one may never know what to expect when it comes to that live entertainment work provided by Blue Ivy’s momma, what we do know is that she covered all of Lemonade (disclaimer–it’s actually not on the list because most you’re most likely listening to it right now) and some Destiny’s Child’s classics (and perhaps you got a little wet?), which certainly got the Philly crowd more than ready as evident in any one of the 875, 567 social media posts that were tossed out into the social media sphere during her last stop.
While the weather this Thursday looks a little Becky-ish, that certainly shouldn’t stop you, your brother or your grandma from getting (even more) woke for Solange’s sister….again. So,who’s ready for some more of that Lincoln Financial Field jelly? There certainly seems to be a lot of it these days.
Ready, set, Michelle Williams.
1.Celebrate Bey’s B”Day… Pass the Bey-tox, because earlier this month, Beyoncé’s Dreamgirls anger inspired sophomore set, B’Day (“10..”)turned a decade old. Let’s face it, it’s miles away from the hardcore heat that the diva serves us with today, but at it’s very best, it’s an album full of laid back vocals on top of definitely 2006 beats provided by Rich Harrison, Swizz Beatz and Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, who whirled out “B’Day’s lead single, “Deja Vu,” which co-starred B’s (“9..”) future husband, Jay z.
If you’ll remember, this was also the beginning of the Yoncé Video Queen era, where it was with this set that Bey served us with an accompanying video for each of the tracks….sigh….all that “Get Me Bodied” choreo and of course, “Kitty Kat” is life. And while the record became a Grammy snatching success and eventually gave us a deluxe edition (hey there, “Beautiful Liar”) there’s truly only four words to describe B’Day to the fullest–The Beyonce Experience and “Irreemplazable.”
2.Listen to this underrated DC banger…. Somewhere in between “No, No, No” Parts 1 &2 (yes) and the beginning of those infamous DC eliminations, the lovely R&B ladies jumped on the soundtrack train to record “Get On the Bus,” which was inspired by the movie Why Do Falls Fall In Love starring Halle Berry, Ms. Vivica A. Fox and Lorenz Tate as legendary ’50s rock-and-roll pioneer, Frankie Lymons.
The thunderous track was produced by Timbaland in 1998, and just that phrase alone should tell you that you must listen to it right now. Get on that early DC bus, indeed.
3.Watch the “Say My Name’ video…..Because you just have to see them all in action again….
5.Watch the video for “Girl” Because…life.
6.Then there’s this…. Sorry, Britney….no shade. (this is the best I could do..MTV be strict, um, gurl).
7.Now, slay trick. You know what happens…
