On the eve of her halftime performance at the 50th Super Bowl (featuring Coldplay), Texas-Bama Bey unexpectedly released a video for the new single "Formation."

Twitter went HAM.

From ruining everyone's Saturday plans.

To giving Red Lobster epic promo.

Beyoncé had Twitter all transfixed by the subtle yet poignant moments in her visuals and lyrics.

It was in the beautiful cultural references throughout the video.

And the seamless way she brought together threads of the black experience in America.

From Big Freedia, to baby hair and hot sauce this video is laced with peak blackness. It's Black History Month in HD, surround sound.
