It was a family affair for the Carter clan. Several photos of Beyoncé and her famous husband, Jay-Z, with their three young children — Blue Ivy, eight years old, and twins Sir and Rumi, 3, have surfaced on Friday, which coincided with Juneteenth.
Juneteenth, which is mainly celebrated by African Americans, marks the liberation of the last slaves from landowners in Texas after the Civil War and President Abraham Lincoln‘s Emancipation Proclamation.
The pictures showed the siblings and their famous parents arriving from California to the Hamptons where they have a mansion.
The rap mogul and billionaire businessman wore a mask as he carried his son Sir from his private plane. The Texan diva held on tightly to daughter Rumi as they deplaned. It appears that Rumi was not happy about all the noise surrounding the airport.
As for Blue, she played the role of the independent, big sister, and walked down the plane all by herself with a mask on.
Beyoncé found a unique way to mark Juneteenth by releasing a powerful song called “Black Parade.” The Texas native rides a Brazilian and African beat as she speaks about the pride and blessing of the Mother Land to Black people all over the world.
She sings: “We got rhythm. We got pride. We birth kings. We birth tribes.”

The track was accompanied by a message that explains that she will be backing many Black-owned ventures and other businesses through her BeyGOOD charitable foundation.
The money raised from the song will go to her BeyGOOD’s Black Business Impact Fund.
The mother of three shared: “Happy Juneteenth Weekend! I hope we continue to share joy and celebrate each other, even in the midst of struggle. Please continue to remember our beauty, strength, and power. BLACK PARADE” celebrates you, your voice, and your joy and will benefit Black-owned small businesses.

A Beyoncé stan wrote this message after hearing the track: “You should know that by now lol… listen to the beat she speaking through the beat I hear her. 😂😂😂😂🐝💜🖤✨”
Beyoncé was also criticized for not including white people in the message and her song: “How about a shout out to all suffering during this pandemic and not just blacks?”
The entertainer had a defender who stepped up to explain this: “Blacks argh, I hate that word so much! Go spread hatred somewhere else, and it’s like you can’t stand to see one day where it’s not about you! Please leave us alone! #NoToViolence, please. Love comes in many colors, and I love you ALL with every shade of my heart.✋🤚🏻✋🏼🤚🏽✋🏾”
Some say that the “Single Ladies” artist might be preparing a big comeback.
