Beyonce gifts model Tabria Majors Ivy Park box after tribute to singer goes viral
The rising model says she was shocked when she received a call saying: 'You have a delivery from Beyonce'
Rising model Tabria Majors took the web by storm in late October when she posted a video of herself dancing like Beyonce for Halloween.
The 11-minute performance, entitled “Beylloween: A Tribute to Beyonce,” racked up countless views from social media viewers, apparently including the Queen Bee herself.
The proof is in the pudding: Majors received a box full of items from Ivy Park, the “Love on Top” singer’s clothing line, as a gift.
On Saturday, Majors posted a video to her Twitter page revealing what’s inside the mobile closet box from Ivy Park. She yelled with excitement upon opening the package.
“I got a call today,” Majors said in the video. “They were like, ‘You have a delivery from Beyonce.’ What?”
Majors’ profile has been ascending in the public for the past few years. In 2018, the plus-sized model was featured in Sports Illustrated‘s popular swimsuit edition. She also launched and co-hosts her own podcast, “The Thick,” and she has been a featured model for Rihanna‘s Savage Fenty lingerie line, appearing in both of the line’s fashion showcases in 2019 and 2020 on Amazon Prime.
Majors shot a video tribute to Beyonce and posted it to social media. The video features Majors recreating the Grammy-winner’s most famous music videos, full with costumes, sets and choreography, including “Crazy In Love, “Deja Vu,” “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” “Countdown,” “Partition,” “Formation,” “Already” and the live Coachella performance of “Diva.”
Major, who admitted on her Instagram post of the tribute that she isn’t a trained dancer, but chose to perform Beyonce’s choreography as an effort to apply the “Drunk In Love’s” singer’s “infamous work ethic to this project and see how far I could push myself.”
The video and Majors became a trending topic on Twitter after it premiered.
Ivy Park was co-founded by Beyonce in 2016, via her Parkwood Entertainment management company, as a collaboration with Adidas. It is a line of sports leisure clothing, shoes and accessories. It first came to the public eye when videos of celebrities seen receiving stylized boxes of Ivy Park items went viral during its 2017 campaign.
