When watching Beyonce’s latest visual album, the first thing that comes to mind is DANG she looks amazing. Welp, turns out, that’s exactly what Bey wanted fans to think.
According to the singer, she wanted fans to see how amazing her post body baby looks after giving birth to her 2-year-old daughter, Blu Ivy. In the singer’s fourth YouTube mini-documentary, “Liberation,” the singer opens up about her new body and losing the baby weight.
“I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body,” she said.
“I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself. I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.”
The singer also revealed that the song “Partition” reminded her of being back in her car as a teenager. “It takes me back to when me and my husband first meet and he’s trying to scoop me and he thinks I’m the hottest thing in the world. I kind of had this whole fantasy of being in the car and this whole movie played in my head,” she said.
“I still haven’t played it for my mom, she would be very mad at me,” she added.
Beyonce landed at the top of Billboard’s album chart for the third straight week, selling 310,000 copies.
