In case you didn’t already have enough proof that Beyoncé (33) is slowly taking over the world, a 68-storey skyscraper inspired by the pop star is about to be erected in Melbourne, Australia.

Architecture firm Elenberg Fraser has been given the go-ahead to build a skyscraper at 134 Spencer Street in Melbourne. The official description for the soon-to-be-built Premiere Tower mentions the music video for Bey’s 2014 song, Ghost.
“For those more on the art than science side, we will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic – we’re going to trust you’ve seen the music video for Beyoncé’s Ghost,” reads the official description of the building on Elenberg Fraser’s website.

Queen Bey’s famous curves are on full display in her music video as she stretches and strains against the fabric, unwittingly inspiring the design for the Premier Tower.

Despite being oddly shaped; the skyscraper will not only be aesthetically pleasing but also scientifically sound.

According to Elenberg Fraser; "The complex form – a vertical cantilever – is actually the most effective way to redistribute the building’s mass, giving the best results in terms of structural dispersion, frequency oscillation and wind requirements."

The Premier Tower will be located in front of one of Melbourne’s biggest railway stations, Southern Cross station, so commuters will be met with Beyonce’s flawless figure daily. The super-star has yet to comment on her 68-storey tribute, which is currently without a planned completion date.
