Beyoncé returns to the stage for concert in Dubai after four year hiatus

After a four-year hiatus, Grammy Award winner Beyoncé returned to the stage for her first live performance in Dubai on Saturday.

The private concert that marked the opening of a luxury hotel, Atlantis The Royal, rewarded the Irreplaceable singer $24 million for her one hour appearance. 

However, the songstress is facing mounting criticisms as she has openly spoken about being an ally but performed in a country that criminalises LGBTQ+ people.

During the concert, she performed the song Brown Skin Girl with her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

Beyoncé's newest album, Renaissance, the title track of which she also performed during the set, has been celebrated for honouring black queer culture and taking inspiration from LGBT icons.

It was also a tribute to her late uncle Jonny, who identified as homosexual and battled HIV.
