In a feat that has surprisingly not been done before, an actress has taken to YouTube to perform Beyonce songs as dramatic monologues.

Nina Millin, creator of the “Beyoncelogues,” utilizes simple black-and-white presentation as she turns songs like “If I Were A Boy” and “Mine” into drama-filled expressive pieces, often times changing the tandem with which Queen Bey originally sung the words for a more conversational effect. And it is, in a word, genius.

“I think I misunderstood how beloved Beyoncé is,” Millin told Esquire. “I think we’re really on to something here.”

Onto something she may be. In just five short days, Millin’s most popular “Beyoncelogue” has been played over 100,000 times. Watch her dramatic renditions of Beyonce’s lyrics below:
