Beyoncé has bid farewell to 2020 with a video featuring unseen footage of her twins Rumi and Sir - and we can't believe how much they've grown.

The superstar's end of year video begins with a countdown to the 2020 New Year, before showing black and white footage of Beyoncé's charity foundation Bey Good's COVID-19 testing efforts back in May.

The clip then features the superstar driving a golf buggy sandwiched between her very adorable twins Rumi and Sir, who turn 4 on June 13, 2021. Beyoncé can then be heard asking Rumi, wearing a big pink bow in her hair: "How do you feel about your summer this year? Did you have a good summer? Yeah? What'd you do?"

Rumi and Sir also posed together wearing pieces from Ivy Park's recent collaboration with Adidas.

"Cheers to a New Year Beehive!!" the singer captioned her video compilation. "2020 divided us and united us. Most could not see loved ones and we felt too many loses, but we were united by our humanity. This year for me has been about celebrating joy, chasing happiness, and living in love."

She continued: "As we all look forward and pray for new beginnings, my wish for you is that you honour yourself and those you love. Celebrate that you are an important individual who contributes to our beautiful collective. Here's to a better and brighter 2021!"

Rumi and Sir's big sister Blue Ivy also got her moment in the 2020 video. An image of Hair Love comes up in the clip, and Blue can be heard narrating the Matthew Cherry book. Fans can also see video of Blue recording "Brown Skin Girl" - Blue became one of the youngest Grammy nominees in history for her contribution to "Brown Skin Girl" last year.

It was recently announced that Beyoncé's charity foundation will be donating $5,000 grants to 100 individuals impacted by the housing and eviction crisis as a result of COVID-19.

"Beyoncé is continuing her heart of support and helping where needed most," read a statement from a BeyGOOD press release. "Phase Two of the BeyGOOD Impact Fund will now help those impacted by the housing crisis. The housing moratorium is set to end on December 26th, resulting in mortgage foreclosures and rental evictions. Many families are impacted, due to the pandemic that resulted in job loss, sickness and overall economy downturn.

"This holiday season, while many are stressed with what they will do next regarding their housing, we are proud to share some GOOD news. Beyoncé is giving $5k grants to individuals and families facing foreclosures or evictions."
