Chance the Rapper screams in excitement over Beyonce encounter

Hip-hop star Chance The Rapper lost his cool at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (28Aug16) after Beyonce crashed one of his interviews backstage.

The Chicago, Illinois native was chatting to MTV News reporter Meredith Graves behind the scenes at the Madison Square Garden prizegiving in New York, when the Formation superstar walked up to her friend and hugged him from behind.


Chance initially appeared unfazed by the on-camera encounter, but once he realised the mystery fan was Beyonce, he began screaming in excitement as he jumped up and down.


"Oh my God, that was 'Yonce," he exclaimed, before dashing over to greet the singer.


"This my life," Chance gushed in amazement after the brief interaction was over.


He has since happily relived the stunning surprise online by reposting multiple messages and gifs of his Beyonce meeting on Twitter.


Chance was among the celebrity fans left in awe of Beyonce's show-stopping VMAs set as she performed a medley of songs from her hit album Lemonade on Sunday.


The R&B superstar led all nominees heading into the MTV VMAs with 11 nods and, as expected, she ruled over the awards, walking away with eight prizes, including the coveted Video of the Year and Best Pop Video for Formation, and Best Female Video for Hold Up.


The multiple victories helped Beyonce break the record for most VMAs ever with 24 wins to her name, surpassing the previous title holder Madonna, who has a total of 20 Moonman trophies.
