Happy birthday, Queen Bey!!
In honor of Beyonce's 34th birthday, friends and family have been dedicating songs
to the pop icon on her website, alongside sweet little messages for why the song they chose remind them of her. While a couple picked Beyonce songs ('cause duh), the "Crazy in Love" singer's husband and child had two particularly heartwarming picks that we just have to mention.
Jay Z, 45, dedicated Coldplay's "Yellow" to his wife, and if that seems out of left field to you, watch this excerpt from Beyonce's HBO documentary "Life Is But a Dream," where the couple sings the song to each other, and try not to melt into a million teary pieces.
"This song reminds me of you and I on vacation," the rapper writes. "'Look at the stars; look how they shine for you.' So many legendary nights. It represents vulnerability; it's us in our own world, away from work and totally lost in love. 'For you I'll bleed myself dry.'"
Blue Ivy's track, on the other hand, is "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid soundtrack. Mama Bey apparently would sing this song to the 3-year-old when she was little(r)!
"Mommy you sung this to me all the time," says Blue's dedication. "Happy birthday, Mommy!"
