A video surfaced of Beyoncé at the Super Bowl after-party, singing to her own new single “Formation,” a song so infectious that not even the singer herself could keep from bouncing and throwing her curls to the beat. It was an effect that also took hold of the halftime performer when the song “Lean On” came on, if Diplo is to be believed. But when it comes to the music Beyoncé chooses for her own thumping playlists, she put any speculation to rest yesterday when she dropped a 13-track digital mixtape called “Hot Sauce” on Tidal.
Featuring intoxicating beats from DJ Screw and Future, hypnotic smooth jams from Kelela and Tory Lanez, and chart-topping bangers including her own “Formation,” “Hot Sauce” gives insight into the music that gets Beyoncé in the mood to slay. It could be seen as a consolation prize for fans who missed out on this morning’s sold-out presale of the Formation tour, but we’re also taking it as a form of gymspiration from Queen Bey herself.
