In what seems to be a reference to her own song, Heaven, the 37-year-old superstar singer captioned the post, “Heaven couldn’t wait for you.”
This touched the heart of Kim’s son, Quincy Brown, who was the child of her relationship with Al B. Sure.
The 27-year-old was brought up by Kim with Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, and he left a simple comment of a red heart emoji.
Beyoncé then followed this with another throwback tribute to Kim, which was also a photo from Kim’s childhood.
