Simone Biles stars in a new Nike ad with a fitting soundtrack: Beyoncé’s “Jealous.”

The new spot features the U.S. gymnast, who has captured two gold medals at the Rio Olympics, training and working out, while the track from the singer’s 2013 self-titled album plays and Biles’ mother, Nellie, provides voiceover.

Nellie fondly recalls her daughter’s path to greatness. “I’ve seen her, from the time that she was 6, putting everything into this sport, and when I see how dedicated she is, it humbles me,” she says. “I always tell her, ‘Don’t forget to be the best, Simone… just be the best.’”

On Thursday, Biles took gold and fellow American Aly Raisman earned silver in the individual all-around gymnastics final, which prompted celebrities such Leslie Jones, Elizabeth Banks, and even Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to tweet our their support.
