Bey and Jay were on the run again and stopped by FedEx Field, in Landover, MD, where the Washington Football Team play. So glad my daughter decided to take me after winning her tickets from the radio. We were sitting with Jesus, but it was cool up there. We could clearly see the sky, with our heads held high. PRAISE GOD the raindrops gracefully fell for a few seconds but didn’t linger. Those Dollar Tree ponchos purchased were not even needed.
Wasn’t sure if sitting amongst the stars influenced the sound, but it just wasn’t on point. Heard JayZ loud and clear at CapitalOneArena in DC, November 2017, and he was full of 4’s, LOVE, hope, faith, and strength. As good as the staging, scenery, and set was at FedEx, the sound system wasn’t properly pumped. Well it didn’t reach us too well on the top level.
Beyoncé boldly bounced in her badass bodysuits, and JayZ looked kinda kool in his assorted attire. They both changed clothes about half a dozen times, but who was counting?
It was good to see EverythingIsLOVE with TheCarters. They had the looks and the background videos to enhance their emotions. Fittingly they opened with “Holy Grail” all dressed in white, with beautiful background videos on display. Their love story, the ups and down, trials and tribulations were performed on stage through their hits, including “Sorry,” “Hold Up,” and “Don’t Hurt Yourself.” It’s clear they are “Crazy in Love,” “Drunk in Love,” and had lots of “Déjà vu” going on. Their “Formation” was fierce, topped with statements of social injustice with “The Life of OJ,” and “Me, Myself, and I.”
It was cool seeing Beyoncé’s rap right alongside her BooThang. Only wish I could have heard them better.
The SugaMamas, on the other hand, did the damn thang. I heard them well. Beyoncé’s all female band showed off their skills. Her dancers ripped the stage apart, as well.
So, YAY for the billionaires, who reminded us “This is Real Love,” as they kissed, held hands, and left the stage with the credits rolling on the screen. A blockbuster movie feeling…I just wished she had done “Irreplaceable.”
Shout out to sister act, Chloe X Halle who opened the show, (on time, too), and DJ Khaled who got the crowd up and jumping with his own hit, “All I do is Win,” and other party starters, like “Up in Here.”
