The song starts with Blue Ivy and SAINt JHN singing the words “Brown skin girl, your skin just like pearls/The best thing in the world/Never trade you for anybody else,”
The beat is simple and feels like I heard it before, for some reason the song brings me back to my childhood. It has an uplifting message reminding you that you’re beautiful no matter what shade of brown you are. I respect Beyonce for using her platform to address the colorism issue that is deeply rooted in the black community.
Overall it’s a great album, refreshing. It touches your heart while making you dance. Thank you to Beyonce and everyone who made this beautiful gift to the motherland.
