As if Beyonce hadn’t already done enough to create an online frenzy this weekend, the singer appeared in a new interview with CBS to discuss her 2013 Super Bowl performance. The sitdown was a rare one, her first interview since 2013, and arrived with the “Formation” song and video that has everyone talking.
Of course, it’s also the perfect time for Beyonce to reflect before she makes an appearance with Coldplay Sunday at Super Bowl 50. Whatever the two decide to do, they’ll be hard-pressed to top Queen Bey’s New Orleans showing. “It’s one of those magical performances you can’t recreate,” Beyonce said. “I wanted it to be something iconic and something that people would never forget… It’s always important for me to be a strong woman. There haven’t been that many women that have done Super Bowl halftime shows. I had to hold it down for the ladies.”
The display was memorable not only because of what the “Crazy In Love” singer did while in the spotlight, but also because of what happened immediately after: a 35-minute blackout which many attributed to her lights out performance. Her loyal fans most likely recall the Destiny’s Child reunion that took place as well.
What can we expect from Sunday’s big performance? Without a doubt, we’ll witness performance of “Hymn For The Weekend,” the Coldplay song which appeared on their 2015 album A Head Full of Dreams and features Bey’s vocals. She’s also expected to perform “Formation” as well.
