The world has gotten to know Beyonce Knowles-Carter for the past two decades and fallen in love with her. What with her work ethic, charisma and bootylicious moves, it’s no wonder she’s this popular, right? The woman exudes confidence and we’re not at all surprised to find out that way before Bey hit the world stage, she had all of those qualities and more–just packed into a mini-version of herself.
A music collection company, called Ted Owen & Co., is claiming to have unearthed “never-before-seen” footage of what we’ve dubbed baby Beyonce in all her glory. By now, we’ve all seen Queen B’s Flawless music video, which includes short clips of herself and her old “hip hop-rapping” crew Girls Tyme coming in second place on Star Search. Ted Owen & Co. says it has a collection of 12 unique tapes from 1992, showcasing a 10-year-old Beyonce (with her crew):
Perfecting her signature moves
Rejecting direction from her group members (shocker)
Getting her don’t-come-for-me stare just right
And, of course, goofing around
The collection is currently in a closed auction until January 10, 2017, and the music collection company is hoping to sell it for two to five million dollars (whoa!). Watch their whole “preview” clip below:
