Beyoncé was feeling funky Monday night.
As E! News exclusively reported last week, the "Hold Up" singer wanted to throw a Soul Train-themed party for her 35th birthday—and that's exactly what she did. Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams dressed up as disco divas, as did Solange Knowles. Other partygoers included June Ambrose, Carmelo Anthony, LaLa Anthony, Swizz Beatz, Cassie, Chance the Rapper, Detail, Sean "Diddy" Combs, The-Dream, Jourdan Dunn, Ty Hunter, Chanel Iman, Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Joan Smalls, Serena Williams and Usher.
Beyoncé arrived around 11 p.m. and wore a sequined outfit. She quickly hit the dance floor with her husband, Jay-Z. At one point, their 4-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter got on the mic and said, "Happy birthday, mommy!" The crowd said "aw" in unison, and Usher shared the moment via his Snapchat story. Beyoncé later addressed her guests, saying, "Thank you, everybody, for coming. You guys did such an incredible job committing, and I'm so happy to be here."
Turning to Jay Z, she said, "Thank you, baby."
An insider tells E! News Beyoncé "had a blast" Monday night, as she had been "excited" about the Soul Train theme and began planning it "a while ago" with her team. "Everyone was dancing, drinking and celebrating Beyoncé. Jay was by her side the whole night and gave her lots of attention and love." Months of planning paid off. "It was a great party," the insider says.
Rowland and Knowles "looked like they had really good time and enjoyed themselves," another source tells E! News. "They were very giddy." But as guests raised the roof, the neighbors raised an issue with the NYPD. "The police showed up around 1 a.m. due to noise complaints," the source says. "A few officers came and they wound up turning the music down." No harm, no foul. And by the time Beyoncé left the party, she appeared "giddy" as can be, too.
The bash ended around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
