“Hold Up: When Music Treats Softness as a Superpower,” by Erica Campbell, is a look into the divine feminine energy of Beyoncé’s “Hold Up” and Karen O’s “Maps.” Featured in Bitch magazine issue #88, Power.

I knew I wanted to directly reference Beyoncé’s “Hold Up” video because of its stunning visuals. In my research of Lemonade, I came across an homage via @rubenstudio that connected the similarities between Beyoncé’s arched foot in “Hold Up” and the foot in Lord Frederick Leighton’s painting, “Flaming June.”

The next step was finding Karen O’s historical counterpart, which I was able to find in another Leighton painting, “Nausicaa.” And lastly, used Gustave Courbet’s “Autumn Sea” to set the heavenly background tone.
