This will make you wanna shoop. 

Beyoncé shared several snaps of her costume on Sunday night. And, it turns out, it was a family affair. Beyoncé, her mother Tina Knowles and little Blue Ivy teamed up to depict Grammy-winning rap group Salt-N-Pepa.

Beyoncé has a knack for choosing great group costumes that celebrate black culture. In 2015, the entire family dressed up as characters from the Eddie Murphy film Coming to America. Bey dressed as Queen Aoleon, her husband Jay Z played Prince Akeem and Blue Ivy dressed up as Imani Izzi, Akeem's supposed-to-be bride.

In 2014, Queen Bey dressed as a "Rhythm Nation"-era Janet Jackson and Blue Ivy dressed as King of Pop Michael Jackson in his iconic red jacket and bejeweled glove.
