The performance of the Queens Remix of 'Break My Soul' certainly left an impact on Lizzo, which she expanded upon in the caption for her video.

"In that moment I was thinking about baby me, listening to Happy Face by Destiny's Child and crying myself to sleep because of bullies…," she confessed.

"I thought about Beyoncé jumping into the room where Tina Turner was waiting to meet her for the first time. I think of what we all mean to people and how cyclical it is.

"We are all so infinitesimally and maximally connected and significant. It's an honor. Thank You @beyonce."

The remix to Beyoncé's number-one smash interpolates Madonna's 1990 hit 'Vogue' and namedrops several other people, all of whom also show up in flashing lights during the Renaissance tour.

The love between the two singers runs deep. Just last February, when Lizzo won the Grammy for Record of the Year for her song 'About Damn Time,' beating out Beyoncé's 'Break My Soul' among others, she dedicated a portion of her acceptance speech to her musical idol.

The tribute came moments after the singer won her record-breaking 32nd Grammy

Lizzo turned to the 41-year-old Grammy legend and mentioned how she'd skipped school in 5th grade to catch one of her shows.

"You changed my life," she emotionally told the 'Crazy in Love' singer, who was visibly choking up herself. "You sang that gospel medley and the way you made me feel, I was like, 'I want to make people feel this way with my music.' Thank you so much, you clearly are the artist of our lives."
