Beyoncé is back on top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

The Lemonade  singer's "Perfect Duet" with Ed Sheeran hit No. 1, ending a surprising nine-year drought for Queen Bey that dates back to her last chart-topper, the iconic "Single Ladies." 

Their collaboration is a retooled, harmonious rendition of "Perfect" off of Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) album, and marks a reunion for the two artists on the mic, after sharing the stage together in 2015 at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City, where they performed a duet version of Beyonce's own heartfelt jam, "Drunk in Love."

Recently, ET sat down with JaQuel Knight, Beyoncé's choreographer for the iconic "Single Ladies" video -- who is also helping prepare for her highly anticipated set at Coachella 2018 -- where he discussed the impact of working on that song so early in his career.

“‘Single Ladies’ is still a moment that I have yet to put into words,” he said of the VMA-winning video. “The impact that that piece had on culture and music and what it's done for Beyonce, even, is just mind-blowing. It's something that's going to hopefully last forever.”

Knight has gone on to be a major collaborator and architect for Beyoncé, choreographing both of her Super Bowl performances, the "Formation" video and her last two years, proving that, like with Sheeran, when she likes working with someone, she sticks around with them for the long haul!
