Beyoncé Performs ‘Bow Down’ in Houston

Beyoncé

Beyoncé made a triumphant and trill return to Houston during her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” on Monday night.

“I’m home,” she told the sold-out crowd at the Toyota Center, who erupted in cheers.

She delivered her usual set and surprised her hometown fans by performing “Bow Down” for the first time live. As images of young girls with the words “Bow Down” flashed across the screen, she played sound bites of gossip reports (she wears wigs, she didn’t give birth to Blue Ivy) before busting out the choreography to the Hit-Boy-produced anthem.

Earlier in the day, Queen Bey posted a video snippet for “Bow Down,” with her sporting gold fangs/a grill. Check it out below.

    @k, she cant be your a broke clown who should be drinking that bleach like I insisted earlier. I can see it now in the news,”Basic bitch drinks bleach and kills herself because she understood her life wasnt worth shit”.

    @kate, if you are great people know it, and you dont have to give away hundreds of tickets to fill your stadiums and toot your own horn constantly. I’m sick of her and her camel contaminating the industry by buying their own products and tickets. It is not fair for talented young entertainers who dont have money. michael jackson even would have been stuck in the ghetto if fools like this were operating when he was young.

    @kate,
    If Beyonce wants to get a little hood, she can do that. Britney Spears has been spewing the word “bitch” since the mid-2000s. Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, etc…the list goes on. But when Beyonce does it, all of a sudden it’s a problem? Have you heard the lyrics rappers spit lately? Get over yourself. She’s a grown ass woman; she can do whatever she wants.

    Bow Down to Queen Bey Reply:

    @kate, I don’t understand how anyone can hate her. Just the fact she’s doing this, shows she hasn’t sold out and is true to her roots. This is far from ignorant or arrogant. People try to find any reason to hate on successful people, without any warrant or it. She came up the right way, didn’t step on any toes.

    @JustMeMyselfAndI, really… just coz she took it to the streets on this track peeps can’t handle that. strange thing is this is an empowering song hard hitting lyrics if ur mad then she’s probably talking about you. if peeps don’t give u respect then…take that Muthafuck. Go B…”the capital B means, she ‘bout that life” thats gangsta

    It’s just plain wrong to go all like “Women United” one year before to show unity with women and then to release “Bow Down, b*tches.”.

    But if some of those women slander your name and talk about your child, you cannot remind them that you’ve worked hard for all that you have and that they need to question what they’re doing with their lives? She’s not saying she’s above everyone. It’s not even that serious of a track. Beyoncé has enough reason to say the things she said. People know no boundaries and she got them in check.

    @mumi, shes not talking to woman (most of her fans by the way). does anyone think or try to understand the lyrics? shes talking to haters and how she wants respect!

    [Reply]

    Lala Reply:

    @mumi, I personally believe that that is the exact reason why she came out with this song. She constantly preaches girl power and empowerment for all, working hard and smiling all day without getting into any real trouble, but yet she still gets “haters” saying things like in the beginning of the video accusing her of getting a nose job, turning kelly & michelle’s mic down for their Superbowl performance, complaining about her wearing leotards when performing since “she’s no ballerina”, saying she wears weave cause she’s bald, that she’s a part of the Illuminati, and that she was never actually pregnant with her child…those are all pretty aggressive comments toward someone who did very little, if nothing, to deserve it.
    The song is just saying that people should respect her for accomplishing a lot of the things that she personally wanted for her life and that she has control over her life, her success isn’t just because of her husband

  11. Honestly

    She’s not calling all women bitches, she’s calling the gossipers, the ones spreading rumors, the ones spreading lies, she’s calling them bitches and telling them to bow down. She can have her own personal empowerment anthem and everyone needs to stop being offended

    @Honestly, THANK YOU! You know the majority of the people who comment on the Rap-Up articles are just plain dumb and probably don’t have an education because anyone with BRAINS would know Beyoncé is NOT telling every woman to bow down, that’s just plain studpid. lmfao but I guess you must have dumb ass people in the world otherwise it would be boring.

This song is to her haters…what makes you guys think that Beyonce can not get mad??? Lol like the girl is human & if you were in her shoes you probably would have BEEN put a song out like this! People get tired of being disrespected all the time and then have to turn around and be nice! Like let her have this moment to “tell these HATERS not all women” to bow down! Chill out aha!

    I was at this show last night and it was amazing. Also? The images she used before the performance were her dancers baby pictures. One of the gossip snippets said, “I heard she turned Kelly and Michelle’s mics off at the Super Bowl.” That was funny. But another one for the QUEEN!

  31. Jeanquila

    Ya’ll need to realize she is an artist, and this song is her artistic expression.

    Didn’t see ya’ll holding Rihanna to S&M freaking out that she must like to get hit and prefers chains and whips in the song. And why didn’t we? Because it’s just a SONG. It’s music, it’s art, it’s expressive. You like the jam or you don’t and move on. No need to hate on her.

    I think Bey should release this one though, would be a radio hit fa sho.

  38. CurtisDonDeano

    The great thing is that she knew just what this song was, her time to have fun. Her last album she wanted to be great but ” critically acclaimed” to be great.
    With this I think she is experimenting with sounds. Beyonce’ has ALWAYS tapped into her ‘hood’ side. ALWAYS. Thats why she went inot Diva, but I HATE when ppl say she’s supposed to be a great role model. I mean its upto you, what you expose your children to. Show them that she dated for 10 years, married, and then had children. Show them this when they’re 14/15 they’ll understand why any woman should be able to tell their haters to BOW DOWN.

    People (i.e: Keyshia Cole, Keri Hilson, the haters, the naysayers, etc.) need to just accept the FACT that… BEYONCE RUNS SHIT!
