Fans in Brazil are going to great lengths to get Beyoncé‘s attention, and they just got the next best outcome. After a group of admirers used a light show projected on the biggest Ferris wheel in Latin America to ask the superstar to come to São Paulo on her next tour, Queen Bey’s mother — Tina Knowles herself — took notice.

On Tuesday (April 9), Ms. Knowles shared a recent video of the Roda Rico observation wheel on Instagram, displaying a colorful tribute to the “Texas Hold ‘Em” singer. As the massive structure spins in the clip, giant projections of a crown, a bumble bee, a cowboy hat and horse — similar to those featured on the covers of Renaissance and Cowboy Carter — dance to life on its front-facing side, as does the message, “Vem, Beyoncé!” (“Come, Beyoncé” in Portuguese).

“Brazil has the some of the most amazing fans,” Knowles captioned the video.

A couple weeks prior, the Roda Rico’s Instagram account shared a similar video of the Bey-themed light show, which was apparently organized by a Brazilian fan account in partnership with São Paulo’s city government.

“THIS AIN’T TEXAS but all I want is for Beyoncé to come and sing right next to me! 🤠” wrote the user @beyonceaccessbr in a joint post with the Roda Rico. “Come to São Paulo, queen!!”

The gesture comes amid rumors that the 32-time Grammy winner is planning to go on tour in support of her latest album, Cowboy Carter, which recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It follows its chart-topping sister album Renaissance, for which Bey embarked on a trek through the United States and Europe in 2023.
