Beyoncé has recently broken the Internet with her HBO special, single-handedly saved the lemon emoji, and scored another No. 1 album. Now, she’s getting a day named in her honor — at least in Minnesota.

With Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour set to stop in Minneapolis Monday night, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has officially declared it Beyoncé Day in his state. In his proclamation, the governor cites the singer’s professional accomplishments as well as her cultural impact. “Beyoncé has influenced many young girls and women with powerful, positive messages in her songs,” reads the document.

After its stop in Minneapolis, The Formation World Tour will continue in the U.S. and Europe through October.
