A reporter from Philadelphia gave her morning traffic update with a special nod, or rather nods, to Beyonce.

Sheila Watko of NBC10 name-dropped 14 song references from the Grammy Award winner, who dropped her seventh studio album, "Renaissance," on July 29.

After being introduced, Watko thanked her fellow anchor and said, "I always appreciate it when you 'Say My Name' " – a reference to the 1999 hit single by Destiny's Child.

"If you're just waking up, I hope that you had some 'Sweet Dreams' 'cause traffic is getting 'Heated' and it's starting to 'Break My Soul' just a little bit," she continued.

She also gave nods to "All Up In Your Mind," "Listen," "Beautiful Liar," and "Countdown."

"We have a 'Formation' of traffic cones all morning," Watko said. "You might want to move over 'to the left, to the left,'" she told local Philly drivers, referencing "Irreplaceable."

Also making the artful traffic report__"Partition," "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Crazy In Love," and "XO."

Watko told her on-air colleagues that she had been planning the feature for days, but postponed it due to a earlier traffic accident.

"We had to celebrate our girl Beyonce," she said.

Tina Knowles-Lawson, Beyonce's mother, posted the original clip on her Instagram account and wrote, "This Soo cool !! All Song titles."

"Renaissance" marks Beyonce's first solo album in six years.
