Beyoncé did not let Juneteenth pass without dropping one of her signature surprises in the form a new single called “Black Parade.”

The singer's website says the song released late Friday will benefit Black-owned small businesses.

It arrived on Juneteenth, an annual celebration of African Americans' liberation from slavery.

This year's celebration has taken on a special significance due to sweeping protests over the police killing of George Floyd last month.

It’s the latest surprise release from the singer, who along with husband Jay-Z released the nine-track album “Everything Is Love” in 2018 with no notice, and dropped her album “Beyoncé" as a surprise in 2013.
