Beyoncé performed an a cappella version of her celebratory anthem, “Black Parade,” on Tuesday (June 23).
The lyrics of the anthem brings out the historical and cultural aspects of her ancestry. “I’m goin’ back to the South,” sings the Texas-born singer.
Last week (on June 19), Beyoncé released the original “Black Parade” track, in honor of Juneteenth that celebrates the end of slavery in the United States.
“Happy Juneteenth Weekend!” she wrote on Instagram when sharing the song. “I hope we continue to share joy and celebrate each other, even in the midst of struggle. Please continue to remember our beauty, strength and power.”
The singer also shared a link to a page on her website functions as a directory. Proceeds from the track will go to her charity, Black Business Impact Fund.
“‘Black Parade’ celebrates you, your voice and your joy and will benefit Black-owned small businesses,” reads a message on the page.
The a cappella rendition is available exclusively on TIDAL.
