Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off the Grammys on Sunday night by performing together on stage.
The married couple selected a song called Drunk In Love, from Beyoncé’s surprise new self-titled album.
This is the first time the singer has performed the raunchy song live, and she and Jay didn’t disappoint.
The stage lighting made the atmosphere very romantic as Beyoncé started the song, wearing sexy lingerie and straddling a chair. Jay joined her to guest rap as a beach-side video played.
The 32-year-old has been very open about the more personal aspects of her new album saying she is very comfortable in her own skin.
According to the pop star, losing weight after her pregnancy made her very proud of her physique.
“I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body—I was 195 pounds when I gave birth. I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body,” she said in a YouTube mini documentary about the making of the album. “I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.”
Beyoncé goes on to say she felt confident enough in her sexuality to be able to share that side of herself. Although she knows some people find it too explicit, the singer is not afraid to push boundaries.
“I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it. And I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me,” she insisted.
