Rae Sremmurd Rapper Swae Lee Co-Wrote Beyoncé’s Formation
Rae Sremmurd star Swae Lee is on the come up!
The young rapper has been credited with co-writing Beyonce’s latest Black Excellence single “Formation” according to Complex reports:
Titled, “Formation,” the record is produced jointly between Mike Will Made-It and Apluss and co-written by Rae Sremmurd’s own Swae Lee. “Formation” is her first single since “7/11,” which came out in 2014, and is up and ready to check out on her husband Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service. Entertainment Tonight confirms “Formation” will receive a live debut tomorrow during Bey’s performance with Coldplay at the big game.
The video for the song was shot primarily in New Orleans and goes full-on Creole, featuring a sample from a native of the “Crescent City,” Big Freedia, while also paying proper homage to her mother’s own Louisiana roots. Right from the beginning, Beyoncé seems to be having none of it, calling out all the “corny haters” for buying in on that “Illuminati mess.” She then proceeds to tear into the Paparazzi and anyone else who might want to speculate on the state of her personal life.
“I’m so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces,” she sings about her Roc Nation President husband, but she’s not to be played with by others: “I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making.” The video itself is gorgeously filmed and features an incredible amount of high intensity choreography from Beyoncé and her background dancers.
Congrats to Swae Lee! Maybe Beyonce should take his azz to Red Lobster? Hit the flip for more…
