Chance the Rapper Reacts to Meeting Beyoncé With a Happy Dance, Naturally

The moment that Beyoncé distracted Chance The Rapper during his VMA backstage interview.

Posted by MTV on Sunday, August 28, 2016

Chance the Rapper is a successful artist in his own right, but even he gets starstruck over Beyoncé. During a backstage interview at the MTV Video Music Awards in NYC on Monday, he appropriately lost his cool when the "Formation" singer snuck up behind him for a little side hug. Chance, whose real name is Chancelor Bennett, was in the middle of sending a message to Drake when the whole thing went down. After realising it was Queen B who gave him a quick squeeze, he let out an adorable squeal and immediately walked over and returned the favour. Thankfully, the entire moment was captured on camera for your enjoyment. Watch above and then check out all the other celebs who just couldn't handle being in Beyoncé's presence.
