Beyonce Knowles surprised her fans by dropping a new track "Black Parade" to commemorate Juneteenth on June 19.

Beyonce celebrates the rich history of West African slaves in Texas who were liberated and emancipated in 1865:

    We got rhythm (We got rhythm), we got pride (We got pride)
    We birth kings (We birth kings), we birth tribes (We birth tribes)
    Holy river (Holy river), holy tongue (Holy tongue)
    Speak the glory (Speak the glory), feel the love (Feel the love)
    Motherland, motherland drip on me, hey, hey, hey
    Motherland, motherland drip on me, hey, hey, hey
    I can't forget my history, it's her-story
    Motherland drip on me, motherland, motherland drip on me

She also shouts out her loyal BeyHive fanatics on the track. "You hear them swarmin', right? Bees is known to bite."

The track is the 39-year-old singer's 2nd offering in 2020. She hopped on Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage Remix" earlier this year. With Beyonce help, "Savage Remix" peaked at #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Loni Love sparked a fierce debate on social media when she said all Black men cheat due to America's history of slavery that separated families.

During Friday's episode of The Real, co-host Loni Love said Black men - particularly men with money and power - cheat with no shame because slavery broke up families.

Loni, who is dating a Caucasian man, said Black men "really don't know how to have true, faithful relationships. They think because they have money, because they have power, that they can treat women any kind of way."

She added: "Money and power does not mean you do whatever you want to do."

Loni theorizes that Black men cheat with reckless abandon because "we are still dealing with slavery and we are descendants of slavery and because our families were broken up."

New co-host Amanda Seales agreed: "It's slavery; welfare reform in the '60s and '70s..."

And co-host Adrienne Bailon said privileged Black men work harder to keep their money and power, and their hustle affects their relationships with their wives.

Hot 97 host Ebro had something to say about Loni's comments that all Black men cheat due to the history of slavery.

"Imagine that pain when you're trying to be honorable and you're doing everything right and your family doesn't believe in you.

"And Black women continue to get on these platforms talking about all men do this and all Black men do that and all Black men have these problems. And as a Black man, you're working on those problems, and you're looking at your people - these suppose to be your people going out in public thrashing you all the time."

He added: "It's not just Black men out here cheating!"
