BONUS VIDEO :

See an absolute dream collective in this video above…

Beyonce + Stokley Williams, Chris Dave + Robert Glasper.

This video is amazing for so many reasons but mainly it is so refreshing to see Beyonce in a real musician jam just letting it all go and adlibbing it out! The energy of this video is incredible.
