Storyline

The music video for "Formation" was shot in Los Angeles, California, and it features references to Hurricane Katrina, antebellum and Louisiana Creole culture, police brutality, racism and black pride. The video begins with Beyoncé lying on top of a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor in a flooded street. During the end, a man can be seen holding a newspaper with Martin Luther King Jr.'s face on it with the title "The Truth". Later on, a young hooded boy dances in front of a line of police officers with their hands up before the video cuts to a graffiti-ed wall with the words "stop shooting us" tagged on it. Dance routines are performed throughout the video by Beyoncé accompanied by back-up dancers. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)
