Beyoncé’s newest album Renaissance dropped the last week of July and the singer shared what bag she’s rocking instead of her Birkins. In the last song on the album called, Summer Renaissance, Beyoncé says that her Hermès Birkins are in storage and that she’s sporting her Telfar bag instead. Check out the lyrics yourself:
Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy
Collect your coins Beyoncé
So elegant and raunchy
This haute couture I’m flaunting
This Telfar bag imported
Birkins, them shits in storage
I’m in my bag
Fans on Twitter are speculating whether Beyoncé’s lyrics mean that it’s the end of the Birkin. But, let’s face it Hermès has always catered to a very specific clientele and people who own Birkins don’t probably care what Beyoncé is wearing.
The grammy-award-winning singer was spotted wearing a Telfar bag last year. She posted a picture on her Instagram page wearing the medium white shopping bag which sells for $202, but sadly it’s sold out on their website. Other celebrities spotted wearing the shopping tote include Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa, Oprah, and more.
