Megan Thee Stallion can't believe she released a new song with Beyoncé.

The rapper took to Instagram yesterday to celebrate her new "Savage" remix, which she recorded with her fellow Houston native, and seemingly became emotional when she began to open up about how much the dream collaboration personally meant to her. Stallion then revealed that her late mother was a huge Beyoncé fan and would play old Destiny's Child music videos to encourage her daughter's musical talent.

"It's really crazy 'cause, like, my mama was a really huge fan of Beyoncé, and she used to make me watch a lot of Beyoncé's stuff. ... I didn't wanna be like, 'Oh, my God, Beyoncé, me and my mama love you!'" said the rapper, reminiscing of the first time she met the "Crazy in Love" singer.

Fans of both Stallion and Beyoncé took over Twitter as soon as the track dropped online yesterday, inspiring a slew of memes showcasing their excitement about the collaboration.

"For Beyoncé to even do a song with me? I've really only been out like two years, this is the beginning of year number two, like ... Beyoncé!?" continued Stallion.

The "Big Ole Freak" rapper then divulged how she believed she manifested the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

"Every time somebody would ask me, they'd go, 'Megan, Megan Thee Stallion, who do you want to do a feature with? Megan, Megan, who would you want to do a song with?' And then I'm always like, 'Beyoncé. Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. You know, Beyoncé?'" said the musician. "Like, I know that they say manifest it, but, bitch! That is a real thing."
