The Carters dropped their FIRST joint album Everything Is Love with nine tracks on Tidal with the visual for single “Apes**t”. The footage shows Bey and Jay at the Louvre museum in Paris, including shots of them standing in front of the Mona Lisa painting while wearing pink and mint suits as well as shots of dancers performing in skin-colored tights and crop tops. Two performers appear on the cover of the Everything Is Love album. The video was filmed on location last month, a Tidal rep told E! News. Beyonce sings and raps in the song “Apes**t.” Sample lyrics include, “I can’t believe we made it / This is why we’re thankful” and “Have you ever seen a crowd going apes**t?”
CLEVELAND — In an election year when Hillary Clinton is depending on young black voters to turn out, she may have gotten her biggest boost yet here on Friday.Some of the most famous names in hip-hop came out to rally votes for her at an event that featured Beyoncé, Jay Z and Chance the Rapper, all of whom implored thousands of cheering people to back the Democratic presidential nominee.
“Hello, Cleveland!” Mrs. Clinton said as she stood onstage with Beyoncé and Jay Z.
Mrs. Clinton called Beyoncé “a woman who is an inspiration to so many others” and thanked Jay Z “for addressing in his music some of our biggest challenges in the country: poverty, racism, the urgent need for criminal justice reform.”
“When I see them here, this passion and energy and intensity, I don’t even know where to begin because this is what America is, my friends,” she said.
At the concert, aimed largely at urging black voters and millennials to vote on Tuesday, some of the biggest stars emphasized the historical significance of potentially electing the first woman as president.
The reasons were apparent. While black voters catapulted Mrs. Clinton to victory in the primary contest against Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, black turnout is down from 2012 in several states and young black voters have proved somewhat resistant to supporting Mrs. Clinton in the general election.
Yet the challenges facing Mrs. Clinton were clearly on display on Friday. When she took the stage and began making the case for her candidacy, dozens of people began leaving the arena, the performance now over.
Still, Jay Z tried to argue that her rival, Donald J. Trump, the Republican nominee, was not fit to be president. “I don’t have any ill will toward him, but his conversation is divisive,” he said. “He cannot be my president. He cannot be our president.”
Beyoncé took the stage just before 10 p.m., and after singing “Formation,” she put Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy into the context of women’s suffrage and the feminist movement.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman leading the country,” Beyoncé said to roars from the crowd. “That’s why I’m with her,” she added, using Mrs. Clinton’s campaign slogan. The artist’s backup dancers even wore blue pantsuits, à la Mrs. Clinton.
The concert had a similar, though subdued, feel to one of Barack Obama’s closing events in Cleveland in 2008, when a largely black crowd of 80,000 waited for Bruce Springsteen to finish to get to the real star: Mr. Obama.
“This is historic, this is a moment in time,” the rapper Big Sean said. “Make some noise if you’re registered to vote,” he told the crowd, as an image of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. appeared on the oversize screens flanking the stage and he sang “One Man Can Change the World.”
Chris Stevens, 29, of Cleveland, said he was a “big Hillary Clinton fan” and expressed confidence she would win on Tuesday. Signs of what might be a close race were reflected in his family, however.
Mr. Stevens, his wife and his parents plan to vote for Mrs. Clinton, but he said his 37-year-old brother, who is a police officer and runs a small business as a D.J., plans to vote for Mr. Trump because he believes he would be good for business owners.
Mr. Stevens was left baffled by his brother’s choice. “I can’t, as a black man, vote for Donald Trump,” he said. “I keep telling him, ‘Donald Trump is not going to help you.’ But he keeps saying, ‘Donald Trump is for business.’”
Other performers, including Steve Aoki, Jon Bon Jovi, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder and Ne-Yo, are also hosting get-out-the-vote concerts for Mrs. Clinton.
The events come as Mrs. Clinton is trying to motivate people in Ohio to vote early.
Younger voters are shunning the two major political parties on a scale not seen since Ross Perot’s third-party bid for the presidency in 1992, a striking swing in public opinion that is cutting into Mrs. Clinton’s thin margin for error.
The rally with Jay Z and Beyoncé comes at the end of a campaign in which Mrs. Clinton has carefully cultivated black support. She devoted the first speech of her campaign, nearly 18 months ago, to calling for an overhaul of the criminal justice system and ending “the era of mass incarceration” that has disproportionately affected black men.
She has spent many Sundays worshiping at black churches across the country. She spoke at a church in Flint, Mich., to plead for help with the city’s water crisis, and she campaigned with the mothers of Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and others who have lost children to gun violence or after encounters with the police.
In North Carolina, where a federal appeals court accused Republicans of an “almost surgical” assault on black turnout and Republican-run election boards curtailed early voting sites, African-American turnout is down 16 percent. And in Ohio, which also cut back its early voting, voter participation in the heavily Democratic areas near Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo has been down.
On board the Clinton campaign plane on Friday, John D. Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman, suggested unfavorable comparisons between Mrs. Clinton’s performance among black voters with Mr. Obama’s were unfair.
“Look, President Obama was the first African-American president, so he had a level of enthusiasm, commitment that we’re trying to push toward beating, but obviously he has advantages there,” Mr. Podesta said.
Beyoncé has been getting a lot of negative press after her epic Super Bowl “Formation” performance. Her upcoming tour is titled the same and it seems to be upsetting a few people. As a result police have threatened to boycott volunteering to work at the “Formation World Tour” as well has purchasing tickets. So far only Miami, Tampa and Tennessee have One person however has stepped forward and offered Queen B the protection needed, and that person is; Minster Louis Farrakhan.
During Farrakhan’s speech for the Nation of Islam’s Saviour’s Day 2016, he commends Beyoncé for taking stance and taunted her distractors for becoming offended.
“She started talking all that black stuff, and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that.’ Well you taught us everywhere we went about The Holocaust, but we had sympathy for you. But when one of us shows some independence, look at how you’re treating Beyonce now.”
In response to police boycotts against the singer’s tour, Farrakhan insisted that Fruit of Islam, the Nation of Islam’s security sector, will handle the job.
“You’re gonna picket, you’re not gonna offer police protection, but the FOI will,” he said.
Beyoncé has done it again! Queen B shut all the haters up in one 5 minute video. What I got from the video is that she is unapologetic. She is proud of who she is and where she came from. She is also proud to let everyone one that she loves her husband and her beautiful daughter no matter what haters have to say. I feel as if there is a reference to Travon Martin and being anti-cops. What I love most is the emphasis on black power. Queen B never fails to amaze me. Love it! OnPoint!
While everyone has been proud of Beyoncé and Jay Z for their contribution to #BlackLivesMatter, you have Fox News that have to make them seem like they did something wrong. This past weekend, writer and organizer dream hampton took to Twitter to reveal that The Carters have donated “tens of thousands” of dollars toward bail money for protesters as well as other needs.
“We know that they’ve been supportive of the administration, over four million dollars donated over the course of time. So in the case of Ferguson, if you like it, then I guess you bring the bail for it,” Hasselbeck said, making a play off of Beyonce’s “Put A Ring On It.”
Steve Doocy adding in a jab for good measure, referring to the recent unrest in Baltimore as “lawlessness.”
“The lawlessness in Baltimore that we saw, and the people who got out, can thank Jay Z and Beyoncé now,” he said.
Yesterday the “Feeling Myself” video with Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé was released was released on Tidal, which hasn’t had the best attention but after this they will be getting a lot more subscribers. Now of course they are pull the video from every YouTube account before they can finish uploading.
However the video consisted of Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé prancing around in one pieces and jerseys. They seem to be enjoying the scenery while expressing how great they feel about themselves. Some online bloggers have also connected Nicki’s jersey to Tyga and Kylie relationship. Nicki and Tyga has had bad blood for a while now after Tyga was pissed because he had work with Nicki and Drake because they were on the same label. The jersey reads “Pervert 17” which could be throwing shots a Tyga for dating Kylie who is 17 years old. The couture jersey retails at $1,700. Throwing jabs in style there’s no other way to do it.
Going back to the main topic. Attached is a 30 second video watch and tell me what you observe. Enjoy!
