Cyclical trends, tryna fit in
Home is where the heart is
Goddamnit I'm comfortable in my skin
These lines perfectly exemplify the main message of Rocket and the visual album BEYONCÉ itself. In “Self-Titled” Part 5 . Honesty, Yoncé says “the glue that ties this record together is honesty.” She explains how growing up as an artist in the music industry, she felt that she could not express herself properly because of other people’s expectations.
I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that at this point in her life I feel like I’ve earned the right to be me and to express any and every side of myself.
Rocket is just as much about passionate sex as it is about passionate singing. Bey is making love through her music. She’s making love TO the music in a way that she’s never done before. This entire album is about the freedom and joy that comes from letting go of one’s reservations and creating music that comes from the heart.
“I don’t think I would have done [Rocket] back then. I don’t think I would have been confident enough. I would’ve been too afraid of what other people thought, but I kinda dropped that 4th wall and I did it.
When Bey sings “Goddamn it, I’m comfortable in my skin”, she means it! She is finally comfortable with herself as a woman, a mother, a singer, and an artist; and through her own satisfaction she galvanizes other woman to find this level of self-truth. Pharrell summed up the power of Beyoncé’s newfound honesty in one sentence:
You set woman free.
