Friday evening, the Lemonade singer took to her website to post the ~lewks~ honoring the “Crush On You” rapper for Halloween.
And not only did she post these spot-on recreations of iconic Kim moments, but she also referred to her as “the original Queen B.” *Please excuse us as we cry over this empowering queen-to-queen moment.*

It wasn’t long before Lil Kim, who also dropped her new single “Took Us A Break” today, posted the pics. She wrote, “Lawwwwddddd, my wig is all the way in China!!! SLAYED 😻 You did that B!” in this side-by-side’s caption.
Look: Manhattan File mag, 2001.
The pic that REALLY shook the Internet, tho, was this spin on the unforgettable sheer bodysuit and fur number The Original Queen B wore 18 years ago.
“@beyonce the resemblance is crazy!! Match made in heaven 👯 Every single detail is on point! I love you to pieces Bey ❤️ #beyonce #lilkim #tookusabreak #queenbee #beehive #lilkimseason” —Lil Kim

And we can’t forget the infamous neon fur and bikini, Chanel chain belt, and platinum wig. Beyoncé nailed it because duh, she’s Beyoncé and she doesn’t half-ass anything.
Look: No Way Out Tour, 1997.
The fifth look was Bey’s take on a satin lingerie dress and blue fur cat. She nailed every detail of this look, too, even the bangs.

Everyone else’s costume is cancelled, from the desks of the Bee and Bey Hives.
