Get in Formation: These 11 songs will prepare you for Beyoncé at Wembley Stadium this weekend

It’s happening. It’s FINALLY happening.


King Bey’s ‘Formation Tour’ lands in London for two days of booty-shaking festivities and we simply cannot wait.


And what better way to start this Beycation than with the 11 ULTIMATE songs you need to hear before trecking across to Wembley Stadium for your Lemonade fix.


1) ‘Formation‘: Obviously, you’ve got to start with the reason why we’re all here. ‘Formation’ sprung up on us like a thief in the night on Saturday 6th February and the world was never the same again.

2) ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)‘: A staple for any Beyoncé diet. Put your hand in his face and say “Whoa-oh-oh!”

3) ‘End Of Time‘: Mrs Knowles-Carter was heavily pregnant when this was formally released as a single so it probably never got the true praise it deserved but what a bop.

4) ‘Run The World (Girls)‘ Beyoncé took on Major Lazer in 2011 and won. It was a double win with this iconic performance from the Billboard Awards of the same year.

5) ‘Grown Woman‘: A firm favourite from the ‘Mrs. Carter World Tour’ this funky, upbeat number will even get your granny out of her seat and dancing along

6) ‘Get Me Bodied‘: Beyoncé is known for causing shock waves. It stems all the way back to her second solo album ‘B’Day’ when she released a video for every single song on the album, which was almst unheard of at the time. Beyoncé went all out for ‘Get Me Bodied’ which featured cameos from her Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland & Michelle Williams and little sister Solange.

7) ‘Sweet Dreams‘: Beyoncé only ever gives us sweet dreams and we love this song.

8) ‘Irreplaceable‘: The ultimate break up anthem. Queen B had us all chanting ‘TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT!”

9) ‘Video Phone’ (feat. Lady Gaga): Beyoncé and Lady Gaga will always be girl group #GOALS of life.

10) ‘Sorry‘: One of our favourite tracks from ‘Lemonade’ we literally fell out of our seats when the video finally landed on YouTube.

11) ‘Crazy In Love‘: Quite literally where it all began for Beyoncé. This was one of her first major solo performances and she was out in impress with a stunning set at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.
