The message features a black-and-white grid displaying portraits of 20 women, including Megan Thee Stallion, Michaela Coel, Rihanna, Issa Rae, Naomi Osaka, and more.

Additionally, Beyoncé paid homage to her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland and her sister Solange.
“Their passion and brilliance shone on courts, zoom stages, streaming services, television, books, dance and song,” the singer added. “They gave us joy and provided escapism in the midst of an overwhelming year.”
Over the past year, Beyoncé has been propping up people from all walks of life through her BEYGOOD Foundation. Through it, she’s offered free COVID-19 testing in her native Houston, financial assistance to Texans during the devastating winter storm, funds for small business owners and more.
