The crowd at Houston’s NRG Stadium was lucky enough to witness the greatness of not just one, but many Two Certified Htown Hotties on Saturday Night.
During the first of two Houston stops on her sold-out Renaissance Tour, Beyoncé surprised the audience in the artists’ shared hometown by inviting Megan Thee Stallion on stage with her. The dynamic duo gave a rare performance of their Grammy-winning “Savage” remix.
“Are we having any wild ladies and gentlemen in Houston tonight?” Beyoncé asked the crowd about halfway through the show, according to footage posted online.
“Please leave it for Houston’s own Megan Thee Stallion.”
There were screams and applause as Meg took the stage in a stylish camouflage outfit, while Beyoncé looked down from her elevated platform (literally) in admiration of her friend and colleague.
“Does she make you proud?” Beyoncé continued to perform and the crowd cheered in response. “She makes me feel proud. “Girl I love you.”
“I love you, Beyoncé!” Meg exclaimed.
The hip-hop sensation later shared an Instagram post showing off her Renaissance Tour outfit and reiterating her affection for Queen Bey.
“Houston I love you,” she captioned the post. “Good night.”
Less than two years ago, the remix of Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit single, “Savage”, was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year. The catchy tune won awards for Rap Song and Rap/Sung Performance.
The collaboration was originally released as part of a charitable campaign providing support to the people of Houston during the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the popular track were donated to relief efforts in the area.
“I’m literally crying…being from Houston…this…means everything to me!!!” Megan Thee Stallion said on social media at the time. “Savage Remix FT The Queen @Beyonce out now!”
Beyonce (and Meg, if concertgoers are lucky) are scheduled to return to NRG Stadium for a spectacular performance on Sunday night.
