Beyoncé is having a 35th birthday weekend fit for a Queen. First, Chance the Rapper serenaded her in front of the entire Made In America festival. Then she went and threw herself an epic Soul Train-themed party. Oh, and she got her daughter a puppy. To top it off, on Monday night, Bey sent her fans a video on Instagram thanking them for "all the beautiful and thoughtful birthday wishes." She went on:
We've grown up together and you guys continue to inspire and motivate me everyday. I'm so grateful for every challenge, every smile, every tear, every discovery, every sacrifice, every triumph, every stretch mark, every kiss, every scar. I strive to make you proud.
But what was even more interesting than the kind sentiment was the superstar's choice of soundtrack. Her signoff, "I love YOOOUUU!!!," was a nod to the song playing during her video, Young M.A.'s "Ooouuu." You can see the whole video, above.
Beyoncé's video is potentially a huge co-sign for Young M.A., a Brooklyn rapper whose profile has risen quickly since she released "Ooouuu." Many observers saw Bey's use of the song as a sign of big things to come.
