Gold recognizes gold. Which is why is makes sense that a new Nike commercial starring Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles features a soundtrack provided by Beyoncé's "Jealous." In the spot we see Biles -- who has already scored a team gold and individual all-around neck piece -- training for her big day with voice-over from her mother, Nellie. "When she was a little girl Simone was very hyperactive, always flipping around in the house and always non-stop energy," Nellie Biles says. "That's just my Simone."

As the song's iconic echoey guitar kicks in, scenes of Biles training and working out play under Nellie's recounting of what she always reminds her world champion daughter: "Don't forget to be the best Simone... just be the best."
