Ever since they were released about four years ago, the Japanese emoticon system called ‘Emoji’ has become popular and has grabbed the attention of Beyonce.
Emojis are emoticons usable on Apple devices as well as some others. There is a separate keyboard to use the emojis, as if they were characters of another language.
After releasing her self-titled album, Beyonce decided to release a range of t-shirts that have the emoji characters on them, depicting some the singer’s lyrics.
For example, for her single ‘Drunk In Love’, a t-shirt with a surfer emoji printed on it is being sold, with the word “surfboard” under it.
The inspiration for the t-shirts might have stemmed from a lyric video posted online, depicting the words to the single with only emojis while it played in the background.
Along with the “surfboard” tee, Beyonce is also selling one with a cherry emoji, for her song “BLOW.”
The two t-shirts are now on sale at Beyonce’s website.
