Beyonce dropped a video Saturday night for her new single “Formation.”

That video is heavy with New Orleans images and scenery.

She sits atop a sinking New Orleans Police squad car situated among flooded houses. She struts with dancers in a mansion, an empty swimming pool and a strip mall parking lot.

All the scenes are New Orleans and Louisiana related.

The new video is based on and takes scenes from the documentary ‘That B.E.A.T.’

The creative team behind that film are no pleased that scenes from their film were appropriated without their permission.

 According to a series of Tweets, there were conversations about the use of scenes from the film, but there was no formal agreement.

Beyonce’s management team responded that the documentarians were paid and the footage was properly obtained

Be advised, the song contains explicit lyrics.
