Tina Knowles Lawson is pleasantly surprised by her superstar daughter Beyonce Knowles’ tribute in the updated version of Megan Thee Stallion’s new single.
Beyonce Knowles‘s mum Tina Knowles Lawson was caught by surprise by her daughter’s sweet shout-out in her “Savage” remix.
In the Megan Thee Stallion collab, Beyonce sings, “I’m a boss, I’m a leader, I pull up in my two-seater. And my momma was a savage, think I got this s**t from Tina.”
But Tina told Entertainment Tonight she “didn’t know” about the song, proceeds of which will benefit charitable organisation Bread of Life amid the coronavirus pandemic, and remarked that it was just another way her superstar daughter takes her by surprise.
“That was really, really cute. People started texting me (saying,) ‘Ok, savage,’ and I was like, ‘What are they talking about?’ ” she laughed. “It’s funny, when I was young, I used to drive a convertible and I used to drive up to Beyonce’s school and she would say, ‘Mama, you are a hot mama.’ ”
“It fills my heart (and) it’s beautiful. I must’ve done something right, right?”
While Tina is doing her best to help out during the global health crisis, by teaming up with her daughter on the #IDidMyPart campaign, which encourages testing for Covid-19 in vulnerable communities, she’s also found it tough.
The 66-year-old added that the most difficult part has been not being able to give her grandchildren – eight-year-old Blue Ivy and two-year-old twins Sir Carter and Rumi – a hug.
“The two babies that are 2, they don’t really understand, so on Saturday we got together from a safe distance, we all went to Bey’s at a distance,” she explained. “We all got tested, Kelly (Rowland) was there, and I got to see my grandchildren from afar and it was hard. That’s been the hardest part about this.”
