The Beyoncélogues is brilliant! As if we didn’t already know that Beyoncé’s songs were poetic, we now have living, breathing proof that her tracks’ lyrics are just as powerful spoken as they are sung. World, meet Nina Millin, an actress who has taken it upon herself to create a series of videos in which she reads Beyoncé lyrics as Shakespearean monologues, called The Beyoncélogues.
In an interview with Esquire, Millin said the project was born out of an ill-fated karaoke attempt during which she gave up on singing altogether and reworked the lyrics as dialogue. With five Beyoncélogues already on YouTube (“Irreplaceable,” “If I Were a Boy”, “Best I Never Had”, “Single Ladies” and “Mine”) and with more on the way (she promises), her views are about to skyrocket; it’s a little eerie how beautifully intense these monologues are read.
Actress and comedian Nina Millin has taken the popularity of Beyoncé to a whole other level. Watch her performance below:
