Mai, who attended the Roc Nation brunch over the weekend, tells Billboard that just as she was getting ready to leave, she saw Beyoncé walking in, and having never met her before, she wanted to go over and introduce herself.
“I went to go and introduce myself and she saw me,” says Mai. “She saw me and started smiling and I was like, wait…She was really, really sweet. She told me to keep going and congratulations on all my success and that she loves me…To be able to have that moment with someone that I grew up looking up to and I still look up to, I'm so inspired by her. It was just a great, great feeling.”
