Consider this queen Beyoncé’s holiday gift to humanity—the superstar artist just released a new 40-second track that she recorded with all of her children—Blue Ivy (9), Sir (4) and Rumi (4)—alongside her sister Solange's son, Julez (17).
The soul-ish song, which is actually the theme music to Beyoncé’s mom's new Facebook Watch series, marks the recording debut of her and husband Jay Z’s twins, Sir and Rumi. What a way to celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary (albeit a few months late!).
Tina Knowles' new talk show, dubbed Talks With Mama Tina, premieres today on the new Facebook platform. According to an official description of the series, folks can expect Tina to host conversations about "issues affecting the Black community" with a slew of different celebrity guests.
Beyoncé’s new music is also the soundtrack to the clip that Tina posted on Instagram earlier today to tease the premiere of her program, showing some of guests that will be appearing on the show—from Kelly Rowland, a member of Destiny’s Child alongside Beyoncé, to Zendaya, Halle Berry and Tiffany Haddish, among many others.

As you may notice from the recording, the theme song kicks off with the star's three kids and her nephew saying "Let's talk about it!" The line is followed by one of them saying "Grandma!" at the end. The artist then takes over the track in her usual iconic flair.
Beyoncé is one step closer to her very first Oscar nomination—which she clearly deserves. "Be Alive," the song she wrote with songwriter Dixson for the movie King Richard, made the Academy awards shortlist in the best song category. The track is up against the likes of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Dos Oruguitas," which he wrote for the animated feature Encanto; Van Morrison's "Down to Joy" from the movie Belfast; and Billie Eilish's and Finneas' Bond song in the franchise's "No Time to Die" movie.
We'll know the final nominees in all categories on February 8.
