Happy early birthday, Beyonce!

The iconic entertainer, who turns 38 on Wednesday (Sept. 4), got an early birthday surprise backstage at the Made in America Festival Sunday.

In a video posted on social media, Bey can be seen blowing out sparkler candles on a cake while the people around her -- including husband Jay-Z -- sing happy birthday. Watch the special moment below.

This year's two-day Made in America featured performers by some of hip-hop's finest, including Cardi B, Travis Scott, Lizzo, Gucci Mane and Megan Thee Stallion. The event, held at Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway, wrapped Sunday evening.

Meanwhile, "Truth Hurts" singer Lizzo had a mini freakout on social media after learning that Beyonce and Jay-Z were watching her set from the side of the stage.

“Swipe to lose your f---ing mind,” she wrote in excitement on Instagram. Check out her hilarious post below.
