Beyonce is taking three lucky teen girls under her wing to mold them into superstars like herself.
The mega super star has offered the three singers a 5-year $1.5 million music management contract under her management company Parkwood Entertainment.
So who are the lucky ladies?
The first act is a sister duo group that first became popular on YouTube. The sisters are Chloe Bailey, 17 and Halle Bailey, 15. Their YouTube cover to Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” has garnered over 8 million views in the last year.

The ink has not yet dried on the new girls’ contract. Sources claim that Beyonce is currently waiting on contract approval from a Manhattan judge. Beyonce will reportedly get 15% of the girls’ earnings.
Beyonce founded Parkwood Music Company in 2008 and her company is responsible for producing her 2011 album “4,” her 2013 self-titled album, and her TV specials and films “Cadillac Records” and “Obsessed.”
In a past interview with Billboard, Beyonce named Madonna as the reason behind wanting to start her own company.
“I started my own company when I decided to manage myself,” Beyonce revealed, adding “It was important that I didn't go to some big management company, I felt like I wanted to follow the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire, and show other women when you get to this point in your career you don't have to go sign with someone else and share your money and your success - you do it yourself.”
Congrats to Beyonce on her new proteges and congrats to the lucky girls, we know they are BEYOND excited.
