MAD MUSIC | Favourites of 2016


“Girl, I hear some thunder”  – damn, that’s putting it mildly. Beyoncé shut everyone else down this year with a soul-on-fire masterpiece, testifying about love, rage and betrayal that felt all too true in the America of 2016. And she delivered it hot and fierce right to all of us at Citifield in Queens. Merci, merci.
