Beyoncé Shows Off Her Rap Skills Onstage With Jay-Z, And The Crowd Loses It

The Grammy-winning artist and her husband performed at the Global Citizen Festival honoring Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

Maybe we should start a list of things Beyoncé can’t do, because that list would be shorter and far more manageable.

At a festival this weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa, commemorating the year of what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, Beyoncé took a break from laying waste to crowds with her amazing singing voice and instead laid waste to the crowd with her rapping skills.

The 22-time Grammy-winning artist, alongside her husband, Jay-Z ― who dabbles in the art of rap himself — performed verses of their single “Apeshit” from their collaborative album “Everything Is Love.” The two finished their On the Run II world tour in October.

Check out the clip above and watch the crowd go absolutely bonkers.

Clarification: Language in this story has been amended to clarify that while the festival was this weekend, it commemorated the year and not the day of what would’ve been Mandela’s 100th birthday.
