Tina Knowles-Lawson — whose full name is Célestine Ann Knowles — wanted to make sure everyone knew exactly where her daughters truly got their dance moves from. In an Instagram video posted on Thursday, May 15, Beyoncé’s mom created a new dance to Beyoncé’s latest hit feature, “Savage (Remix).”
Beyoncé contributed to Megan Thee Stallion’s latest single, “Savage,” from the latter’s 2020 studio album Suga. Of course, the mother of two wanted to support her daughter by dancing to the chart-topping remix.
While there is already an official trending TikTok dance to the catchy tune, Knowles-Lawson made her own routine to go with the song.
In the video, the internationally recognized clothing designer stood in an all-black outfit — and fairly empty room — as she swayed to the club anthem. As Knowles-Lawson danced adorably to Beyoncé’s raunchy verse, she drew closer to the camera as the song lyrics referencing her name approached.
“Please don’t get me hyped, write my name in ice / Can’t argue with the lazy b*tches, I just raised my price / I’m a boss, I’m a leader, I pull up in my two-seater / And my momma was a savage, n*gga, got this sh*t from Tina.”
While Beyoncé’s fans loved the namedrop, the 66-year-old grandmother said her daughters’ amazing dance skills came from their father.
“Haaaa!!! Yeah i know they didn’t get their dance moves from me!! They got em from their daddy! its okay i still like to dance!!!!!” read the funny Instagram caption, which included a stream of crying-laughing and red-heart emoji.
Knowles-Lawson’s fun dance video was well-received by her 2.4 million Instagram followers. With over 400,000 views and over 10,000 comments, followers praised Ms. Tina for her own “classy, bougie, ratchet” dance moves.
The comment section was flooded with loyal fans, including at least one notable personality.
“You better werk!” commented actress Octavia Spencer.
“OMGGG YESSSSS MAMA TINA!!!!! PEOPLE WISH THEY LOOKED THIS GOOD!!” exclaimed another Instagram user.
Billboard reported that the remix recently jumped to No. 1 on the Billboard Streaming Songs chart, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, making the song the first No. 1 grab for the 25-year-old Megan Thee Stallion and a third win for Queen Bey.
Outside of joining in on the latest dance trends, Ms. Knowles-Lawson recently partnered with her daughter’s foundation, Beygood, aiming to deliver more COVID-19 testing to the Houston area, per The Inquisitr.
She was inspired by the lack of awareness in the Texas community and thus created the #IDIDMYPART campaign.
