In the midst of the controversy surrounding her recent halftime performance at the Superbowl and the video of her latest single “Formation,” Beyonce gives us another reason why she reigns as our Queen Bey.
Four months since her spread on Beat, the “Flawless” singer graces the cover of Garage Magazine proving to all that she has the ability to slay with simplicity. Rocking cornrows that are very much reminiscent of her Destiny’s Child days, she effortlessly matches it with a beatless(no makeup) face, simple earrings, and a look that allows you to get a glimpse of her inner Sasha Fierce.
Though details of her interview with Garage have not yet been released, the cover alone sends a profound message, one very much similar to points made in her song “Formation.” In the song she is heard singing “I like my baby hair with baby hair and afros. I like my Negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils” in reference to the comments often made about Blue Ivy’s hair and Jay-Z’s nose. Through these lyrics, Beyonce is spreading the notion of self-love and acceptance, concepts that are also promoted through her natural look on the magazine cover.
Beyonce has mastered the art of continuously surprising her fans with something new. Following her self titled album that was released in 2013, her song “Formation,” the sudden announcement of the Formation World Tour, and now the cover of Garage Magazine, there is no telling what else she has up her sleeve. Until then, let us get in formation!
