Tina Knowles Lawson is opening up about missing her grandchildren during quarantine, how she’s giving back to those in need and her superstar daughter Beyoncé’s killer remix of Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage."
Speaking to ET’s Kevin Frazier, Knowles Lawson admitted her daughter takes her by surprise some days, just like she did with the song. “Yeah, she does,” she said. “I didn’t know about the ‘Savage’ remix.”
In the remix, 38-year-old Beyoncé 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 sh*t from Tina.”
So, what does Knowles Lawson think about the shoutout?
“That was really, really cute. People started texting me [saying,] ‘Ok, savage,’ and I was like, ‘What are they talking about?’” she said, before explaining where the line came from. “It’s funny, when I was young, I used to drive a convertible and I used to drive up to Beyoncé’s school and she would say, ‘Mama, you are a hot mama.'”
“It fills my heart [and] it's beautiful,” added Knowles Lawson, who also shared how much she loves the track on Instagram on Thursday. “I must've done something right, right?”
The song has been a hit, with celebrities like Kerry Washington and Alex Rodriguez rocking out to it in self-isolation and fans getting busy making TikTok videos.
Proceeds from the remix will benefit Bread of Life, which is helping provide meals to homeless and hungry residents of Houston, where both Beyoncé and Megan are from.
Beyoncé and Knowles Lawson previously had ET tag along as they helped the same organization in 2017, following Hurricane Harvey.
