UPDATE: A source tells Us Weekly Hillary Clinton "made a surprise visit to the set."


Beyoncé isn't letting the "Formation" critics distract her next political statement.

Queen Bey's latest release was met with backlash for its commentary on police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, however these themes will be further explored in her upcoming album.

The follow-up to her 2013 self-titled LP - tentatively called "Project Lemonade" - is expected to be an 'album film', taking her past video-for-every-song approach to the next level, which explains how the socio-political statement of "Formation" could be continued.

According to fan site The Beyhive, the parents of police brutality victims Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown will appear in the video for one of the songs, holding up pictures of their children.

To see one of the biggest global artists use her platform to address such a prominent and important issue is extremely admirable, and the message is even more powerful coming from a black woman.

The album release is expected imminently as the singer begins The Formation World Tour on April 27 in Miami, Florida.
