After days of rumors, it's official: Jay-Z and Beyoncé will be back on stage together.

The confirmation comes directly from the Queen B. Instagram profile with the publication of a video teaser of the new tour On The Road II with the two artists protagonists of a series of black and white images on the notes of the iconic song by Alton Ellis and Hortense Ellis I'm Still In Love With You Girl.

Un post condiviso da Beyoncé (@beyonce) in data:

The watchful eye of the cultural critic Suede noted the resemblance of the final part of the teaser, in which Bey and her husband are seated on a motorcycle adorned with a long-horned bull skull, with an iconic scene from the Senegalese Touki Bouki. The 1973 film directed by Djibril Diop Mambety tells the story of two lovers, Mory and Anta, caught with scams and thefts to organize the flight to Paris.

It is not the first time that Beyoncé has paid tribute to African culture. Remember the Pantsula, a dance born in the townships of South Africa during the apartheid during the Run The World (Girls) of 2011 or costumes and folklore coming from the Black Continent present in Lemonade?
