Sunday came and went sans a new Euphoria episode, so stars
and Storm Reid danced to Apesh*t to fill the Euphoria void in
fans hearts. On the heels of the HBO hits Season 1 finale on August
4, onscreen sisters Rue (Zendaya) and Gia (Reid) took to social
media with a spirited
rendition of Beyonc and Jay-Zs collaborative track Apesh*t from
their joint 2018 album, Everything is Love. In the video uploaded
on Sunday, Aug. 11, the duo lip-synced to the track in the clip
shared by Zendaya on the first Euphoria-less Sunday.
Because theres no Euphoria tonightI present your favorite tv
sister duo @stormreid,” Zendaya captioned the post. In the clip,
she rocks a gray hoodie (no, not
that maroon hoodie from the series that’s layered with double
meaning) while Reid dons a Chicago Bulls jersey with her hair
fashioned in Princess Leia-esque buns. Gimme my check, put some
respect on my check, the duo lip sync. Or pay me in equity, pay me
in equity or watch me reverse out the debt.
Are you listening, HBO? Zendaya and Storm said give them their
checks, put some respect on their checks for their standout
performances on Euphoria.
The lighthearted video comes after an emotional Season 1 finale,
which may or may not have seen
Rue relapse into her old drug-addicted ways. The scene
accompanied by Zendaya and
series composer Labrinths collaborative track All Of Us
featured an ethereal dance number with a church choir. The
potential relapse came on the heels of Jules departure after Rues
inability to follow through on her plan to skip town together.
Elsewhere, drug dealer Fezs fate is unknown while Nate and Maddys
tumultuous relationship seemingly comes to a head. The series has
been renewed for a second season, so fans will just have to be
patient in regards to the fate of these respective characters.
Given the series’ dark subject matter, its refreshing to know
its stars can still find time to lip sync to Queen Bey. More so,
Zendaya is a well-documented Beyonc stan. She also famously
appeared in a
cameo in the singers visual album
Lemonade alongside stars such as Amandla Stenberg and Chloe and
Halle Bailey in the All Night video. Shortly after its 2016
took to Instagram with a photo of the group. One of the most
beautiful things I’ve ever had the honor of being apart of, she
wrote on Instagram. Black. Girl. Magic.
In an interview with Good Morning America in December 2016,
Zendaya gushed about the experience, It was a really powerful
moment and I feel like I was a part of music history Im just
obsessed with Beyonc and have been since my birth. She continued,
Just to be there and really learn from her and see how amazing she
is how detail oriented. It was just cool to just sit back and
A premiere date for Euphoria Season 2 has yet to be announced,
so, for now, fans will just have to listen to Beyonc on full blast
as they immerse themselves in fan theories about the finale.
