‘Just don’t over-choreograph! I have to sing the song’.
Beyonce is about to make her big time ‘return to the stage’ tonight as part of four shows that will take place this weekend at The Revel in Atlantic City. This will be her first time performing since her 4 Intimate Nights with Beyonce concert series that took place back in September of last year.
To get her fans hyped about the performance, she released a behind-the-scenes look into her rehearsal process which includes long hours in the office and editing room, her work out regimen and business meetings with her team.
“It is exciting. I’m feeling a little nervous. I’m enjoying being a mother so it’s like going back to an old job and it’s a little strange but it’s important that you don’t lose yourself…that you have your own passions and I’m back to work. I’m back to business.In the clip, she’s in full businesswoman mode as she takes control of her stage show, telling her team things like, ‘Just don’t over-choreograph, I have to sing the song’ and ‘The emotion of the show is to be amongst the fans. If you look at me and how big the stage is. It’s way too tall’. She also says while playing back footage, ‘Unfortunately, we’re not using that. I don’t like that the beat comes in before the beat comes in. You can’t give away the song. I give away the song’.
‘What I am trying to say with this show is ‘Yes, I had a baby’ and it just made me even more grounded and more like you’.
By the end of the clip, you get a sense that Beyonce has claimed her independence in a major way during the time that she parted ways with her father and took full control over her career. And in the midst of it all, she is definitely out to prove that a baby don’t stop the show.
