Not long after celebrating her 35th birthday with Jay Z (and even Bill Clinton!) at Made In America Festival on Sept. 4, Beyonce hit Instagram to thank everyone for their birthday wishes -- and share a quick video about shaking haters off.

"I just want to say thank you to everyone for all the beautiful and thoughtful birthday wishes," Beyonce wrote in the Instagram caption. "I am so fortunate to have the love and support of my family, my friends, and my hive. We've grown up together and you guys continue to inspire and motivate me everyday. I'm so grateful for every challenge, every smile, every tear, every discovery, every sacrifice, every triumph, every stretch mark, every kiss, every scar. I strive to make you proud. I love YOOOUUUU!!"

Accompanying the letter to her Hive was a video (well, it wasn't exactly a video, just three Beyonce photos edited together to make it look like she was dancing) set to Young M.A's "OOOUUU."

Not familiar with "OOOUUU"? You should remedy that right now. 

With this Beyonce cosign for 24-year-old Brooklyn MC Young M.A -- not to mention the song's empowering refrain "These haters on my body shake 'em off!" -- expect bigger things from her in the future.
