When your significant other, mom, or close family member is the Queen of all what could you possibly get her for her birthday? A personalized musical playlist and tons of sweet personal messages, duh.
That’s how Beyonce’s closest friends and family – including her husband Jay Z, her daughter Blue Ivy, her parents, and Destiny’s Child members Kelly and Michelle – publicly celebrated her 34th year of life. Curated along with personal messages to her, track links and photos were posted on B’s official website.
The records are all over the place, much like Bey’s personal style, and span genres but the sweetest of all has to be the offering from Jay Z. Being the undercover sentimental guy that he is, chose a Coldplay record that the couple have some history with.
“This song reminds me of you and I on vacation. ‘Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.’ So many legendary nights. It represents vulnerability; it’s us in our own world, away from work and totally lost in love. ‘For you, I’ll bleed myself dry.’”
Little Blue brought back OG Disney memories with her selection, “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, because that’s the exact type of song a 3-year-old would choose. Her reasoning? Simple: “Mommy, you sung this to me all the time. Happy birthday, Mommy!”
The very best dedication, though? That honor belongs to Bey’s uncle Larry. He chose Mike Jones’ classic “Still Tippin’” featuring Paul Wall and Slim Thug because, every once in a while, we need a reminder that Beyonce is still just a girl from Houston chunking up the deuces and screaming “H-Tine.”
