Beyonce recently narrated a Gatorade commercial meant to honor the career of retiring Serena Williams. The spot is called “Serena Williams. Love means everything.»
If you need the transcribed version of the video here it is.
“When the world writes her down in history, we will start where she started… in love. No points, zero score, just love. It is a love that we will remember through generations. A love that started a movement.
A movement to always love exactly who you are and who you can be. To be so in love with your identity that your very essence cannot be contained. Loving the sound of your own voice and the way you move. Feel like an unapologetic queen with the crown indefinitely.
To appreciate every muscle and every curve your body exhibits. A movement to always love to be a proud black woman, mother, dreamer, leader, to love to be unique, to always love to be you, your whole being, your true self.
To love you always. So when we write her down in history, no matter who you are, no matter where you are, we will remember what she has shown us: a movement to love you.» Gatorade described the video on YouTube.
“Serena Williams has shown us the power of love, for yourself and for everything you do. Her self-confidence has been an inspiration to all, but especially young women of color. She has started a movement: realizing that you can do anything if you have self-respect,” Gatorade wrote in the commercial’s caption.
Serena Williams thinks Beyonce is a genius
23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams called singer Beyonce a genius and an inspiration. Williams, one of the greatest tennis players in tennis history, absolutely enjoyed Beyoncé’s performance during the Oscars.
Beyonce produced a song for the movie «King Richard» called «Be Alive,» which was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category. Beyonce recreated «Be Alive» in Compton, on the same courts where Serena and her sister Venus grew up.
Williams loved seeing Beyonce perform on the same courts where she took her first steps in tennis. «Beyoncé is a genius. I think she’s obviously the most amazing person and artist ever and I really liked the idea behind it.
I like to get the idea of going up and performing where we grew up,» Williams said on The Ellen DeGeners Show, as quoted on Sportskeeda. Go back and do that on those courts.
