Surprising many, the unexpected cameo on Beyonce’s newly released song ‘Sorry’ has garnered the praise of the World Wide Web. In the much-lauded video, the reigning Wimbledon, French Open and Olympic tennis champion is showcased twerking next to Beyonce.
“I always imagined that this will actually be possible to see them in one picture,” wrote one Instagram user.
“This right here made my night! Two of my favorite black women doing the most! I can't say enough how proud this made me,” added another.
In typical Queen Bey fashion, the 34-year-old singer eschewed conventions by releasing her sixth solo album after she premiered an hour-long, conceptual film on HBO. The album is not yet for sale and for the present moment can only be streamed on Jay Z’s Tidal.
The 17-year-old Hunger Games star, Amandla Stenberg, who is famed for her now viral video on cultural appropriation, also made an appearance in the Lemonade album. The scene also features Disney channel star Zendaya Coleman powerfully, serenly posed on a porch.
"Lemonade is “based on every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing,” Tidal revealed in an announcement.
