On Saturday (Oct 15), Beyoncé performed in New York City for TIDAL X: 1015, a benefit concert that raised money for education programmes. Now, a video of her performing “6 Inch” is streaming online. The song originally appeared on her most recent album Lemonade (the studio version has a guest spot from The Weeknd) and features a memorable interpolation of an Animal Collective song.
During Beyoncé’s concert, the singer urged the audience (and anybody watching the livestream at home) to vote in the November US elections. “Remember, Barack Obama is our president,” she said. “You made that happen. Young people made that happen. We are not helpless. The fire is still burning. Please go out and vote this November. So many people have died and sacrificed so much for us to have our voice. We have to use it. Get in formation. Use our voices to do something great for our children.”
