Who runs the world? According to Beyoncé, the only answer is "Girls" and based on her latest reported business move, she intends to keep the ladies on top of the game. Per MTV, the New York Post claims that Queen Bey just signed three young divas in the making to her Parkwood Entertainment Company for a $1.5 million record deal. In case any singing hopefuls are wondering why they missed out, Bey didn't hold secret auditions, and as far as we know, little Blue Ivy didn't prompt her mother to sign new talent (maybe she was too busy encouraging her grandmother Tina Knowles to marry Richard Lawson). But what actually happened is quite amazing - Beyoncé found all three girls on YouTube where they've racked up tons of fans because of their impressive covers of her songs.
Social media is brimming with talented singers, so how did these girls manage to catch Beyoncé's attention? Apparently 17-year-old Chloe Bailey and her 15-year-old sister Halle's cover of "Pretty Hurts" was impressive enough for Bey's manager to put in a good word on their behalf. This led to a five-year, $1 million contract for six albums. Meanwhile, 14-year-old Sophie Beem landed a $560,000 contract with Parkwood Entertainment.
Check out the covers that were so awesome that Beyoncé deemed them worthy:
