“February saw the release of Formation, a celebratory assertion of the singer’s African heritage and simultaneous protest against police brutality towards African-Americans. Some conservative critics cried folly, accusing her of politicizing her art; they are demonstrably wrong. Beyoncé’s recent track is akin to what Fischer says: what the musician did with Formation was to spark discourse, to transcend the flaccidity of direct, verbal justifications and “communicate somewhere other than in the things you can explain verbally,” stepping away from pop-culture’s vacuous existence.”
