Arabic culture all the way!
An old video of Beyoncé resurfaced while she was recording her music Water for The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack album.
Queen B was seen in the studio ululating “tongue wagging,” which caught the Arab audience’s attention prompting them to start circulating the video.
WATER was released in July 2019, and gathered 2.3 million views.
Beyoncé’s ululation reminded us of Queen B’s Beautiful Liar co-singer Sharkira, particularly of the Super Bowl LIV halftime show performance back in February 2nd.
One of the most iconic moments of the concert was when the Waka Waka hitmaker came close to the camera and performed a zaghrouta “ululation,” leaving so many Western viewers in shock wondering what was that, until it was later explained by the media as a gesture of joy in Arabic culture.
