Having a Beyoncé song with Kendrick Lamar on Lemonade is an amazing thing. Seeing the two of them perform “Freedom” live at the 2016 BET Awards last night? Truly next level. The performance began as epically as we’d expect it to.
After dancers marched to the stage to the beat of a drum, Beyoncé emerged to literally walk on water in front of the packed out venue. Kendrick emerged in a hoodie, shrouded in smoke, to deliver a few new lines before delivering a dynamic performance of his strong guest verse.
Watch the entire performance below, and as an extra bonus check out Jesse Williams’s amazing Humanitarian Award acceptance speech after the fact. Truly a memorable night.
