A TikTok influencer used his extraordinary makeup skills to transform himself into pop singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

There are hundreds of Beyonce-inspired makeup tutorials on YouTube, but this tutorial is the most convincing.

Some viewers were convinced he was actually Beyonce due to the singer's naturally masculine features.

The TikTok user's magical transformation video is going viral online. It's amazing what a lot of foundation, mascara and a custom hair hat can do.

Check out some of the comments below:

One Worldstarhiphop user wrote: "I always thought Beyoncé was overrated in looks."

Another user wrote: "This is WHY BLACK MEN ARE TURNING TO T------. Not much of a difference. You STILL GET THE SAME WEAVE, SAME FAKE EYELASHES, FAKE FACE wit da makeup and or plastic surgery, FAKE BUTT, etc. But on da real, the only advantage is YOU GET A HOLE THAT IS TIGHTER."

And a third wrote: "I heard beyonce look just like jigga without the makeup, I thought it was myth."

Jay-Z was dumbfounded when it came to his attention that there were audio clips on YouTube that sounded like the aging rapper reciting "To be, or not to be," the opening line of a soliloquy from Shakespeare's play Hamlet.

The audio might have impressed the "Song Cry" rapper - if it was really was him reciting Shakespeare.

You've heard about the "deepfake" videos that alters photos and videos to look like celebrities or political figures. YouTube and Facebook are on a mission to take down all deep fake videos in the wild.

But, until now, deepfake audio wasn't a problem.

The technology uses text-to-speech software to computer-generate Jay-Z's speech patterns. Literally, someone typed the text of the soliloquy and used Jay-Z's speech patterns to make the audio.

If that sounds scary to you, imagine how it sounds to Jay-Z. Imagine if that software fell into the wrong hands.

Think of how easily a blogger could fool Jay-Z's wife, Beyonce, into believing he's cheating on her with Megan Thee Stallion.
