Beyonce is showing her support of the Black Lives Matter movement by dropping new music entitled “Black Parade”. The song surfaced hours after the Houston native announced an initiative to support black-owned businesses in an Instagram post.
“Happy Juneteenth Weekend!” she wrote in the caption. I hope we continue to share joy and celebrate each other, even in the midst of struggle. Please continue to remember our beauty, strength and power. Being Black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right.”

Beyoncé sings about black love, her ancestral roots, “charging her crystals in a full moon,” the need for reparations and the current civil unrest in the United States.
“You could send them missiles, I’ma send my goons/Baby sister rappin’, hear me out, hear me out/Trust me, they gon’ need an army (Ah)/Rubber bullets bouncin’ off me (Ah)
Made your picket sign, I’m your picket fence (Ah) …. Lay down, face down in the gravel/Woo, wearin’ all attire white to the funeral/Black love, we gon’ stay together,” she sings.
