While technically it’s Leo season according to the astrology calendar, Virgo supremacy is year-round. And there’s no other person to prove this point than the queen herself, Beyoncé, with the release of her latest blockbuster album, Renaissance. Her seventh solo album, Renaissance, celebrates queer Black music and communities, sampling from different dance genres like Jersey club, disco, house, UK garage, and more.
However, at the center of the album is quite possibly her best work, and that’s “Virgo’s Groove.” Born Sept. 4, 1981, Beyoncé is a Virgo sun and the song itself is a six-minute disco-funk gem that we can all assume refers to her own groove. And while the song is a blissful listen that doesn’t overstay its welcome, Twitter users have responded with one question: “Do Virgos even deserve this?”
Some users on Twitter have spoken up about their displeasure that such a life-changing song could be given to the Virgos and not them. Is it disingenuous of Beyonce to release a modern classic during Leo season? Sure, but to those who feel that way I say, stop being selfish and learn how to share the spotlight (I’m also a Virgo, so my opinions are slightly biased).
Even Issa Rae, star of Insecure and creator of Rap Shit on HBO, had to let the internet know just how fortunate Virgos are right now, simply stating on Twitter, “Virgos are so lucky.”
According to MTV News, Virgos are known for “their low tolerance for drama and direct nature, would never be that messy. And the majority of people in the United States are Virgos, so we better let the patient sign have its moment.” Others on Twitter have questions about the “backlash” levied against the Virgo community.
“Virgos Groove” is an endlessly replayable, vocal tour de force that’s overflowing with power, joy, love, and desire. Do Virgos deserve this song? Absolutely. Everyone does to be quite honest, but this one just hits a little bit more for those of us born under the best sign in the universe.
