The hat-and-braid ensemble known from the 2016 track was put on by Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, Michelle Obama, Blue Ivy and Beyonce’s closest family to pay tribute to Bey’s birth day.
The photos were posted on Beyoncé’s website alongside with a pledge to support the Houston relief efforts. The hashtag #BeyGoodHouston is atop the photo collection.

In an interview with Stephen Colbert, the Late Show host asked: “Well, the most important question I have for you is what is Beyoncé really like?”
“She’s a sweetheart,” Obama replied. “She’s smart, she’s creative, she’s a great mother. She loves her family. She’s just a low-key lady, so we have a lot in common in that way. Except I can’t sing, I can’t dance.”
Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z led a crowd singalong for wife Beyoncé during his headline set at Made In America festival in Philadelphia yesterday.
Beyoncé is celebrating her 36th birthday today (September 4), so Jay Z got the crowd to wish her many happy returns by singing a few bars of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Happy Birthday’.
