Prior to the ceremony, Chance was being interviewed backstage by Perfect Pussy frontwoman Meredith Graves for MTV News. As the rapper served up a friendly challenge to Drake (saying that he’s “coming for your muscles”), Beyoncé swiftly approached Chance and laid her head on his shoulder briefly while smiling at the camera. Both Chance and Graves were initially unaware of what had happened, before Chance then clocked who had crashed his interview.
“Oh my God, that was ‘yoncé!” he exclaimed, before going over to embrace and speak to the singer. Graves then made sure to have a word with the Texan, with Beyoncé complimenting her tattoos.
“That happened,” Graves announced, as Chance danced around her, exclaiming: “This my life, B!”
