Move over, Queen Bey, there’s a new reigning power in town — Queen T! Tina Knowles-Lawson (Beyoncé and Solange Knowles’s mom) just landed a major cover — and showed off an insanely impressive body in Ebony‘s “Sexy Forever” July issue.


Knowles-Lawson, 61, poses on the cover with flowing waves set to accentuate a gleaming gold crown and accessories. Inside the feature, she really turns up the heat in a sultry spread, posing in a plunging red gown with thigh-high slit, and then in a bandeau-style crop top with high-waisted skirt and flowing, long cape (a Knowles family favorite — Solange even got married in one).

In the cover story, she credits her fit figure to a five-day-a-week workout regimen of Pilates. She also reveals that she’s in talks to create a TV show about “getting your groove back.” (Looks like she may be giving Kris Jenner a run for her money!)

While this spread definitely shows off more of her assets than we’ve seen before, Knowles-Lawson did display her impressive physique at her wedding earlier this year. She wore a stunning body-hugging Romona Keveza gown,  exclusively telling PEOPLE, “It was important to me to have a wedding and walk in white, because sometimes we feel that at a certain age you should act a certain way. You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it.”
