Beyoncé is already having one hell of a week, with her new single out, another Super Bowl performance in the books, and a world tour on deck, and it's somehow only getting better. According to CNN, Red Lobster saw a massive spike of over 33 percent in sales on Sunday after the surprising name-drop by Bey on "Formation." So yes, Bey rapping "When he f*ck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay," literally brought a boom to the chain. Incredible.
Not only that, but the seafood restaurant was mentioned on Twitter over 42,000 times and was a trending topic for the first time in their history. This is all despite the fact that Red Lobster kind of botched the immediate reply to Beyoncé's shout out, as they didn't end up sending out a response tweet until hours later. Still, it's hard to argue that Red Lobster wasn't a winner in this situation, and maybe they should throw Bey some of those profits. Or how about they just go ahead and make "Cheddar Bey Biscuits" an official thing.
