During the special event, the 34-year-old singer mixed music with intermissions of poetry, almost entirely dealing with themes of infidelity. (So much so that many Twitter users were wondering if the multiple songs about a women scorned were directed towards Jay Z.)
The event also featured special appearances by Serena Williams (who danced alongside Bey in a black leotard) and vintage footage of a young Beyoncé with her dad. The Weeknd also made a sort-of appearance as he was featured in a duet, but did not actually make an appearance during the video.
However, the fans who thought that the film was a breakup anthem were in for a happy ending of sorts, as the final song and film ended with scenes of a happy Bey, Jay and Blue Ivy taken from what appeared to be home movies.
Beyoncé dropped her last self-titled item in 2013 as a big surprise to her fans, and most recently shocked the world releasing her newest single “Formation.”
Her Formation World Tour kicks off Wednesday in Miami.
