Yes, you read it right! Beyonce dropped a brand new song on Juneteenth (June 19), a day which marks the end of slavery in USA. The celebration commemorates the day when the last African American learnt that they were free of slavery.
As Juneteenth is a day of joy and pain, Beyonce dropped “Black Paradise” and announced it via her Instagram “Happy Juneteenth Weekend! 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,”
“I’m going back to the South, I’m going back where my roots ain’t watered down,” Beyoncé sings as she asks her listeners to “Follow my parade” at many points in the track. “We got rhythm, we got pride, we birth kings, we birth tribes,” Beyoncé sings toward the end of the nearly five-minute song.
The proceeds from “Black Paradise” will benefit Black owned small businesses who’s links are mentioned on her website.
The song is catchy and has very meaningful lyrics, written by Beyonce itself to empower the Black community. Check it out!
