Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar Stun With ‘Freedom’ At BET Awards 2016 (VIDEO)
Judging from pre-release materials, Beyonce wasn’t scheduled to perform at the BET Awards 2016. That’s why her performance with Kendrick Lamar proved so stunning, as the pair teamed up for a showstopping rendition of “Freedom” from Beyonce’s world-conquering album Lemonade.
Featuring a voiceover from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the performance was not just an epic showcase for great vocals, great rapping, badass choreography, and a smoke-and-lights show that would put some rock bands to shame, it also had the weight of a political statement. This was the biggest moment of the show, as Beyonce and Kendrick just tore the house down. Watch the video below:
