Vintage Beyoncé as a background singer

Still stealing the show


Even as a 90s background singer wearing floral hairbands, sheer cropped jackets and a Rachel from Friends 'do, Beyoncé was still winning at life, as you can now see for yourself this amazing vintage video which has been unearthed from the depths of the internet this week.


You might remember a while ago in her 'Bow Down/I Been On' release when Bey shared a throwback memory of time "she was in that Willie D video when I was about fourteen, looking crazy". Yes well, THIS IS THAT VIDEO.

We're not too sure about crazy but teeny tiny baby Beyoncé is looking adorable alongside the rest of the four member Destiny's Child in the Lil' O 1997 music video. Yup, Leo was on the Titanic, Geri wore a Union Jack to the BRITs, and Beyoncé was a backing singer. What a year.


It goes without saying that she's got some flyyyy moves, some even flyyyyer 90s outfits, and naturally makes a truly terrible music video really good. 

Here's a relatively unknown Beyoncé FEATURING on someone else's song, being generally majestic and probably trying to decide which of the mere mortals in the music video she'd hire as her shoe buffer one day.
