    One of the bonus tracks on the project is a remake of Frankie Beverly & Maze’s 1981 classic “Before I Let Go.” While most of the lyrics are the same as the original, the last few minutes of the song call out some specific dance moves.

    Queen Bey hasn’t revealed what the official steps look like, but folks have taken a stab at it with the #BeforeILetGoChallenge.

    On Monday night, the songstress posted a few clips of people dancing to the song on her Instagram Story, and some shared their excitement on social media -- especially since she rarely uses the feature. 

    The dancers who were highlighted were thrilled to be recognized by Beyonce.

    The singer continues to spotlight fans taking part in the challenge -- including HBCU Middle Tennessee State University’s National Pan-Hellenic Council -- into Tuesday.
