It's almost as if Beyoncé filmed this in quarantine. She was always ahead of her time. Time-travelling queen.

This video shows that she can do whatever she wants in her career and it’s going to be iconic. Beyonce’ is in a league of her own, and NO ONE is touching her or will her compare to her. EVER! QUEEN BEY

CarlosSDCA

this video shows they did not want to have a large budget for it. it also shows that this is no better than any of the thousands of tiktokers that do just the same: dance around in their messy houses.
