Beyoncé Tributes Her Mother's Resilience in New Song

The last few years have been difficult for Tina Knowles. After a very public divorce from her philandering husband of 33 years, she's found new love and seems to have found some peace. Tina shared her story at a luncheon earlier this year.

Now her daughter, Beyoncé,  is celebrating her mother's resilience in a song. "Ring Off" will appear on Beyonce (Platinum Edition).

The song paints a picture of Tina starting over.

In the mirror you would stare/And say a prayer like, 'I wish he said I'm beautiful'/ I wish it didn't hurt at all/I don't know how I got here, I was once the one who had his heart,

Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that finger.
