Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, just responded to the NBC traffic reporter who flawlessly incorporated Bey's song titles into her brilliant traffic update.

Sheila Watko of NBC Philadelphia is a proud member of the Beyhive community of fans.

To celebrate the 28-time Grammy Award-winning singer's newest album Renaissance, Watko delivered Tuesday's traffic report by name-dropping some of the biggest hits from Beyonce's extensive music catalog, one after another.

And she did it without the use of a teleprompter.

“Thank you, Bill. I always appreciate it when you "Say My Name," said Watko after being introduced by her fellow anchor for the live segment.

She continued, in part:

“Now if you’re just waking up, I hope you had some "Sweet Dreams" ... but traffic is getting "Heated" and it’s starting to "Break My Soul’ just a little bit.”

You can watch the nearly two-minute segment below in the tweet Watko posted featuring her off-the-cuff brilliance.

Among the thousands of social media users who were impressed by Watko's mad skills was Bey's mom, who shared a video of the viral traffic report.

Celestine Beyoncé Knowles-Lawson is the mother of singers Beyoncé and Solange Knowles who was formerly married to their father, Matthew Knowles–the manager of Beyoncé's pop sensation, Destiny's Child.

The humanitarian and creator of the brands House of Deréon and Miss Tina by Tina Knowles married actor Richard Lawson in 2015.

After being wowed by Watko's traffic report, Lawson, who is affectionately known as Ms. Tina, re-shared the clip and wrote:

"This Soo cool !! All Song tittles😂❤️"

Watko was blown away after reading PEOPLE Magazine's report on the story.

"I will NEVER recover from Ms. Tina posting my Beyonce traffic report to her IG yesterday(me fainting)," said Watko on Twitter, adding, "And now @people is giving @NBCPhiladelphia some love! All hail Queen Bey!"

The praise continued.

Renaissance is Beyoncé's seventh studio album, and its release marks the pop diva's first solo project in six years.

Well done, Sheila! We love you like "XO."
