Beyoncé Rocks a Roberto Cavali Dress as she Pays Tribute to Yoruba Goddess Oshun.

Beyoncé released her visual album Lemonade and it’s got everyone talking. In one of the videos ‘Hold up” she is seen wearing a marigold dress by Roberto Cavalli from his AW 2016 collection.

In the video, Beyoncé is channelling Oshun as she is spotted wearing a dress similar to an artwork portraying the Yoruba goddess. She also surrounds herself with a lot of water. Oshun is the orisa of fresh water, sensuality, flirtatiousness, feminine sexuality, love and fertility. All attributes of the Yoruba goddess are spotted in the “Hold up” video.

Below are artworks of Oshun and pictures from Beyoncé’s music video;
