The super star singer, on Friday night, dropped the single to commemorate Juneteenth.
The 155 year old holiday is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of black people who had been enslaved in the United States. Originating in Texas, it is celebrated annually on the 19th of June throughout the United States, with varying degrees of official recognition.
On her Instagram caption, she said “Happy Juneteenth Weekend! 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.”
Proceeds from the song will benefit Black-owned small businesses, a message entitled “Black Parade Route” on the singer’s website said. The post included links to dozens of Black-owned businesses.
