Who run the world? Beyoncé.

The superstar singer, actress, and Ivy Park designer is taking on yet another business venture. In a new interview with Elle, the”Formation” singer teases her own music label within her company Parkwood Entertainment.

The Parkwood label will deliver a group of young artists — including YouTube-famous duo Chloe x Halle, rapper Ingrid, and singer-songwriter Sophie Beem — who have been influenced and supported by Beyoncé. Their signings were announced last year, but after the magazine debuted the cover story online, the artists shared the news and their own spreads in Elle.

When asked about running her own company, Beyoncé told Elle, “It’s exciting, but having the power to make every final decision and being accountable for them is definitely a burden and a blessing. To me, power is making things happen without asking for permission. It’s affecting the way people perceive themselves and the world around them. It’s making people stand up with pride.”

She continued, “I want to take all my resources and give these artists the support of the best, to nurture them and allow they to be who they really are.”

In the package, Beem shared the best advice Beyoncé gave her and said, “Run on a treadmill for an hour every single day and sing.”
