Watch Beyoncé And Kendrick Lamar Slay ‘Freedom’ At BET Awards 2016
You NEED to watch this...
An unscheduled opener for this year's BET Awards, you could see how surprised those lucky enough to be in attendance were. Just check out that curious look on Samuel L Jackson’s face (who also took home the Lifetime Achievement award) 53 seconds in.
Performing on a stage submerged in water (Singin’ in the Rain: The Musical, anyone?), flames and smoke shot out from behind Beyoncé and her dancers throughout. It looked spectacular.
The whole room was bathed in crimson red lights, and if all of this wasn’t exciting enough already, Kendrick Lamar then shot up from beneath the stage to rap his section of the track.
Seeing the artists responsible for two of the most intelligent, imperious and important albums (Lemonade and To Pimp A Butterfly, of course) in recent memory perform together was a joy.
The pair left to a well-deserved standing ovation.
Beyoncé will soon be starting up her UK tour on Saturday 2 July, at Wembley Stadium. The tour will run until Saturday 9 July, at Croke Park, Dublin.
