It's a family affair! Beyoncé and her three children, Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir Carter, are featured in the theme song for Tina Knowles's new series, Talks With Mama Tina. "Let's talk about it!" 9-year-old Blue Ivy and her 4-year-old siblings say at the start of the song. Beyoncé then sings, "(Mama, mama) Whatever it is we can talk about / (Mama) Tell me how you feel we can talk about it / (Mama) Say what's on your mind we can talk about it / Simple conversations with no limitations / Come and have a talk with Mama Tina."

Beyoncé Made a Track With Rumi, Sir, Blue Ivy, and Solange’s Son, Julez

Good news: Beyoncé has released 40 seconds of new music, and her children all feature on the track. Weird caveat: You can only hear it on Facebook Watch. Today, Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, shared the theme song for her new Facebook Watch series, Talks With Mama Tina. Knowles began the talk show as an Instagram Live series in 2020, using it as a platform to host conversations about “issues affecting the Black community.” The new theme song opens with Beyoncé’s kids — Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir — along with Solange’s son, Julez, saying “Let’s talk about it!” and one of them saying “Grandma” at the end. It marks the recording debut for the 4-year-old twins. Beyoncé comes in with the rest of the track, singing over footage of Knowles’s celebrity guests, including Zendaya, Chloe and Halle Bailey, and Tiffany Haddish. The show premieres on Wednesday, December 22.
