Beyoncé celebrated Juneteenth the way only she can, by releasing a bomb new single.
The track “Black Parade” is an homage to the black community and the many protests happening regarding the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Happy Juneteenth Weekend!”, she wrote on Instagram. “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.”
On her website, Bey shares proceeds from the song will benefit Black-owned small businesses in a message titled “Black Parade Route.”
“Being Black is your activism. Black excellence is a form of protest. Black joy is your right,” it reads.
