By

Beyoncé is a queen, and she's using her power to help.

On Wednesday, the International Day of the Girl, the singer posted a video on her Facebook page, partnering with Salma Hayek's Chime for Change initiative and The Global Goals to produce the clip.

In the video, an international group of young girls fiercely lip sync to Bey's 2016 song "Freedom" as startling statistics about the world's female population are displayed on screen: 71% of human trafficking victims are girls, while 130 million girls are out of school.

Queen Bey also recently lent her voice to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The 36-year-old performer joined J Balvin and Willy William on their remix of "Mi Gente," singing in Spanish and English, and raising money for a good cause.

"I am donating my proceeds from this song to hurricane relief charities for Puerto Rico, Mexico and the other affected Caribbean islands," Bey announced on Instagram. "To help go to Beyonce.com/reliefefforts."
