We were thinking a lot of about the moon and symbolism involving the moon and the sort of mystery that can go along with that, and we were looking for some relationship: to come back to water, and we were thinking about the tides.

It holds together stylistically, between soft ballads, thumping and clattering club tracks, soaring anthems and R&B slinking.

She’s singing about a limousine blow job, feminism, blackout drunk romance and her daughter, and most of it will force you to shake your ass.  Bow down, bitches. All hail Queen Bey.
