Beyoncé has a knack for giving people their flowers, both figuratively and literally.

Over the last few months and following the release of her 8th studio album, "Cowboy Carter" on March 29, Beyoncé has sent flowers to a slew of artists including rapper Nicki Minaj, Jack White of rock duo White Stripes and country singer Mickey Guyton, among others.

After some of the artists shared the elaborate, all white floral arrangements on social media, fans went online to praise Beyoncé's generosity and her sweet words of encouragement.

"Beyoncé giving all the girls flowers and never being jealous of anyone’s success. She’s really the MOTHER of the music industry," one fan tweeted.

"If it’s one thing Beyoncé gone do... its send the girls flowers," another said.

"Beyoncé is nice. She doesn’t care whether or not you care for her. She’s gonna give you, your flowers," a third said.

Read on to learn more about why Beyoncé is sending flowers and some of those who made the list.

Why is Beyoncé sending flowers?

Though Beyoncé hasn't publicly opened up about her reason for sending flowers to people, she has sent personal messages on cards, in which she thanks recipients for their work and impact in their industry.

In 2022, Beyoncé sent Sheryl Lee Ralph flowers with a note reading, "To the original Dreamgirl, Sending you a beautiful congratulations. All my Love, Beyoncé."

Ralph originated the "Dreamgirls" role on Broadway that Beyoncé portrayed in the 2006 film. Ralph had just won her first Emmy for her role in sitcom "Abbott Elementary," so congratulations were in order.

Years later, fans are still impressed that Beyoncé continues to send flowers and notes to her peers, her inspirations and those who look up to her.

"One of the main reasons I believe she’s still on top is because she continues to uplift, credit, and give flowers to deserving, unappreciated, and upcoming artists which I think is the beauty of Beyoncé’s newer work," one fan said.

"Beyoncé doesn’t have a single hateful bone in her body. Y’all can try to pit her against others, but she’s only gonna uplift them and give them their flowers. I love that woman," another added.

"BEYONCE does your florist ever sleep?!?" a fan asked.

Over the years, recipients of Beyoncé’s flowers have included Andra Day, Katie Couric, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Megan Thee Stallion.

But her sweet gesture has seemingly received more attention as of late following the release of "Cowboy Carter" and her recent deliveries to country musicians like Mickey Guyton and K. Michelle.
