Tina Knowles Lawson is Beyonce’s mom and speaks about moving to a new city at 59 years of age. Lawson also talks about getting a new man, calling life changes possible. Whereas Sterling will feature the actor being surprised at his wife’s admission, the teaser doesn’t reveal why. “I, I’ve never heard you just say that, like that,” Sterling said.

Expect Black Love as “Ring Off,” Part 2
When Black Love returns to OWN on Tuesday, October 2, at 10/9C, expect the show to echo Beyonce’s song, “Ring Off.” The lyrics explained Tina’s pain in dealing with Beyonce’s dad, Mathew Knowles. The superstar singer witness her mother’s “many sleepless nights when you sit and you think about Father.”
Tina “tried to be the perfect wife,” Beyonce’s song proclaimed. She thought of a mom who smiled through pain. Tina was once the one who had Mathew’s heart, but she got fed up and took off her wedding ring. Encouraging her mom, Beyonce sang that the fun began when her mom decided to love again.
There’s love after the ring comes off
“You found a new man now you shine and you’re fine,” Beyonce continued. She sang about her sexy mother starting over. Tina made her daughter proud for traveling the high road after so many years of tears. The fresh start that is displayed via Black Love is one that Beyonce sang about regarding her parents’ 2009 divorce. The song caused speculation that Beyonce may have sung about her own troubled marriage.
Alas, Beyonce commiserated with the pain her “Mama” felt. Now it all makes sense, she sang, noting that when a person let’s go of a bad relationship, it’s not the end. “Mama, we can love again,” she sang, alluding to Beyonce’s own thoughts of freedom. Meanwhile, YouTube viewers are already commenting on Beyonce’s likeness in comparison to her mother. “I don’t know why but I am always amazed to see how much a daughter reflects her mother,” wrote one commentator. “To the sound of her voice, her gestures while speaking, the way she tells a story. Beyoncé is the spitting image of Tina.”
With fictionalized HBO black love and real Black Love on display, the new season of the OWN show should be a hit.
