IF YOU’RE READING THIS, I’M MOST LIKELY SOMEWHERE TIPSY AND HYPER-VENTILATING….
So tomorrow night at 7:30 pm, I will be at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome standing in the crowd with my Forever 21 knock off Manolo boots, laid edges, beat face, and an open heart. This is my first concert, so I’m not only vv excited, I’m also stoked as hell to be in the beautiful city of New Orleans.
If you don’t learn anything about me in this SunsetNoir blog, please understand that I am a genuine member of the Beyhive. I’ve been rocking with sis since 1998 when she graced the world as the lead singer of the best girls group to ever touch U.S soil, Destiny’s Child. Through all the BS that this world offers me on a daily basis, Beyonce has yet to disappoint me… But instead goes way above my expectations.
You’re probably reading this thinking, “Faith.. Where are you going with this?” … And now is the time where I stop stanning and start just throwing facts out.
When Beyonce first went solo, she made amazing music… but I’m going to be honest, I didn’t feel like I could relate to Bey. (YES I’M AWARE IN NO SHAPE OR FORM WOULD I EVER COMPARE TO BEY)… But yeah, I felt like when she released Dangerously in Love, Bday, Sasha Fierce, and 4… They were timeless albums that I loved, but I don’t feel like I felt a strong strong connection to Beyonce.
(& DON’T EVEN TRY TO SAY I’M BASHING THOSE 4 ALBUMS, BECAUSE THEY WILL ALWAYS REMAIN BOPS AND WILL BE PLAYED AT MY WEDDING AND FUNERAL… ALONG WITH A FEW JUVENILE SONGS)
However, Bey took a hiatus and released an album that changed the ENTIRE course of music history. She released an album with absolutely NO promo, and sold 828,773 copies in the first three days…. YOUR FAVE WOULD OR COULD NEVER… Anyways, she released an album and told us about her insecurities, her love for her husband and child, and even let the world know that even she is a freak.. (not going to lie, Partition and Rocket caught me off guard and made me clutch my pearls)
Then on top of releasing her self titled album, she pulled another stunt… went to the Superbowl and performed this BLACK ASS performance (Formation) and slayed the entire world. Beyonce literally went from this cute country girl from Tx who played it safe, to this feminist who was not afraid to sing about her sexuality and motherhood, to this civil rights goddess.
AND PLEASE DON’T GET ME STARTED ON LEMONADE… (I’LL DO A SEPARATE POST ON THAT )
But Beyonce has gotten to this point where she is honest as fuck, uses her platform to not only give us girls songs to twerk to at the club, but also gives us songs to march to and be proud of our Black heritage…
So yes, I’m more than psyched to be able to breathe Beyonce’s air and just get my wig shifted….
PEACE AND CORNBREAD,
P.S: I WILL BE POSTING VIDEOS ON MY SNAPCHAT @FEYONCE . TUNE IN ❤
