Speaking on the popular radio station's flagship show, Drivetime, Lloyd told Lexis Bill how his dance crew's video, in a trending challenge, caught the eye of Queen Bey herself.
According to Lloyd, the freestyle video in which he was dancing with some other members was one of the few selected by Beyoncé and saw her posting them on her social media handle.
“It was a freestyle for the ‘Already’ video challenge on social media and I joined", Dancegod Lloyd noted.
He added that after Beyoncé put the video up, many people who follow the American singer sent a screenshot of the gesture from the American to him.
The dancer added that he was convinced it would not be long before he would get to be in the same project as Beyoncé.

He stated that Beyoncé’s post was followed by a message from the singer’s choreographer announcing his team’s approval for them to appear in the Black Is King film.
A dance routine was then sent by Beyoncé's team to be performed by a Ghanaian aiding him and his team on the expected dance patterns which was going to be required for the video.
“Since it has always been our purpose in life, all we needed was just a night to rehearse the routine sent us and we nailed it in the original shoot,” he revealed.
Dancegod Lloyd is the co-founder of the DWP Academy, an institution created to help improve and shape dance talents in youth across the country.
He was featured on CNN after Beyoncé posted a picture of him dancing to her song on her Instagram page.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Dancegod Lloyd was not the only Ghanaian who featured in the project. Young director, Emmanuel Adjei, also played a role as one of the directors for the film.
