Beyonce Tops BBC Radio 1 With Pro-Black Anthem

Published: Wednesday 8th Jul 2020 by David

BBC Radio 1 has joined Beyonce‘s ‘Black Parade’.

Full story below…

The latest track to emerge from the Pop empress’ vault is a cut named ‘Black Parade’ which was released to celebrate African culture in all of its forms and lead the way for her forthcoming Disney release ‘Black is King’.

BBC Radio 1, the radio platform whose reach glides over the 10 million mark, is powering the track’s run in the United Kingdom after making it the highest-spun track on the station.

As it stands, it is currently generating more plays than the Roddy Ricch and DaBaby jam ‘Rockstar‘, Justin Bieber’s ‘Yummy’, Kanye West‘s ‘Wash us in the Blood’ and the Lady Gaga smash hit ‘Rain on Me’.

Listen here.

    ‘Parade’ isn’t the only pro-African love song making major waves.

    ‘Brenda’s Got a Baby’, Tupac’s love letter to disenfranchised black girls, hit the 100 million mark across all platforms on Monday thanks to 25 million spins generated on Spotify.

    Now Brenda’s gotta make her own way
    Can’t go to her family, they won’t let her stay
    No money no babysitter, she couldn’t keep a job
    She tried to sell crack, but end up getting robbed
    So now what’s next, there ain’t nothing left to sell
    So she sees sex as a way of leaving hell
    It’s paying the rent, so she really can’t complain
    Prostitute, found slain, and Brenda’s her name.

    This, as Janet Jackson’s ‘New Agenda’ reaches the same milestone thanks to numbers accumulated by user-generated tribute videos, and streams amassed on subscription services like Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify.


    Because of my gender
    I’ve heard “no” too many times
    Because of my race
    I’ve heard “no” to many times
    But with every “no” i grow in strength
    That is why
    African american women
    I stand tall with pride.
