Beyonce Slays ‘Formation’ Tour Opener in Miami, Dedicates Songs to Prince, Jay Z
Beyonce kicked off her 2016 “Formation” World Tour in Miami on Wednesday (April 27) and, as expected, it was an amazing spectacle. The R&B superstar opened the show with “Formation,” which drew the crowd into a frenzy.
According to E! News, Bey’s husband, Jay Z, as well as fellow rappers Rick Ross and Lil Wayne were enjoying the action in the comforts of their front row seating.
After starting out the show with "Formation," Bey told the crowd, "If you came here to have a good time, say, ‘I slay.' If you're proud of where you're from, say, ‘I slay.'"
From there, Queen Bey performed several tracks from her most talked-about album of the week, Lemonade. She even more performed “Sorry,” which includes the now-famous lyric, "He better call Becky with the good hair," without addressing who the elusive “Becky” is. Beyonce also sang “All Night,” of which she told the rapt crowd that it’s her favorite song on the album.
According to the Associated Press, the concert also featured montages of Beyonce's family with Jay Z playing with Blue Ivy and a snippet from Hov's grandmother's 90th birthday telling the crowd she turned life's lemons into lemonade.
However, the highlights of Beyonce’s show was her tribute to Prince and Jay.
Queen Bey took a moment to remember the fallen icon as she looked up at the sky and said, "Prince, thank you for your beautiful music. God, thank you for speaking through a beautiful artist that inspired all of us." During her costume change break, the R&B mom had “Purple Rain” playing throughout the venue.
As for the rumors that Beyonce’s marriage to Hov is in turmoil, she deaded all of that with her dedication of "Halo" to Jay Z.
"I wanna dedicate this to my beautiful husband... I love you so much," she said.
Beyonce even poked fun at the critics (and maybe the police) by selling "Boycott Beyonce" merchandise on her tour. Clearly, Beyonce is laughing all the way to the bank and making life's lemons into her Lemonade.
