[Watch] Here's How the Bucs Got that Beyoncé Shout Out on 'Lemonade'

Bey set up a boss level play date for Jay Z and Jameis Winston.

Published April 27, 2016

If you caught Beyoncé's visual album Lemonade in its entirety over the weekend, you might have been confused to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers mentioned under her "Special Thanks" section of the credits.

Well, if you missed it, you better believe the Bucs would show and prove, taking to their Twitter account with the screenshot as a receipt.

The question is why would Queen Bey thank an NFL team?

Well, according to TMZ Sports, the Beyoncé shout out came as a result of the Bucs allowing Jay Z to use their gym.

"We actually were not involved with Lemonade, it was actually just a thank you for allowing Jay Z to come and work out at our facilities during their time here in Tampa as they were preparing for the start of her tour," a rep for the team told the celebrity news site.

Perhaps Bey hooked up this meeting between her hubby and Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, too.

Peep how Hov jokes about throwing a mean spiral and how Jameis doesn't have any rhyming ambitions.

Somebody tell Jameis that Jay is a Dallas Cowboys fan, though.

Nevertheless, perhaps a Roc Nation Sports deal is in the works for Winston.
