Uncovering the Biggest Beyoncé Easter Eggs in Prime Video's "Swarm"

Prime Video’s thriller series “Swarm,” starring Dominique Fishback, gives stan culture a whole new (deadly) meaning. The show, which premiered on March 17, is cocreated and executive produced by multihyphenate Donald Glover and “Atlanta” and “Watchmen” alum Janine Nabers, and also stars Fishback alongside notable names like Chloe Bailey and Damson Idris. It follows an “obsessed fan of the world’s biggest pop star who sets off on an unexpected cross-country journey.” In the weeks leading up to its release, many assumptions about “Swarm” buzzed around (pun intended) social media following the release of various trailers and small clips.

The show’s fictional pop star, Ni’Jah (played by Nirine S. Brown), bears a very close resemblance to Queen Bey’s life, career, and overall aesthetic. However, Nabers has said that “Swarm” could be about any one of viewers’ favorite icons. “For us, it was really about finding the feeling that someone gives to Black women in America,” she explained to Billboard, refraining from calling Ni’Jah a Beyoncé-like character. Despite this, it’s almost impossible not to point out the obvious Beyoncé nods throughout “Swarm”‘s seven episodes, all of which are prefaced with the following message: “This is not a work of fiction. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is intentional.”

To help viewers identify these Easter eggs, we have rounded up all the major Beyoncé references you’ll spot in “Swarm” ahead.
