Alright, Beyoncé is going to need to stop with the surprises. As if I’ve fully recovered — which I haven’t — from the release of her most recent LP, (I know it was more than 7 months ago but come on!) Mrs. Carter has hit us with more unforeseen music. And yup, you guessed it, my heart is palpitating.
This time the singer linked up with none other than Nick Minaj on the remix of her feminist anthem “Flawless.” The female powerhouses, dropped the song on Yoncé’s website Saturday (August 2) night, which — shocker — temporarily crashed the database. It’s the first time these two have ever collaborated, which further stoked everyone’s excitement.
On the track, Queen B addresses the recent scuffle between her sister Solange and husband Jay-Z during a Met Gala after party singing: “We escalate, up in this bitch like elevators, of course sometime s— go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
She continues: “I wake up looking this good. And I wouldn’t change it if I could. And you can say what you want. I’m the s—.”
Last weekend Nicki announced she’d be pushing the release of her upcoming single “Anaconda” back to this Monday saying we’d soon find out “why.” At first, everyone was sure that it was because Beyoncé would be on Nicki’s new song, but it looks like we’ve uncovered the mystery and — in case you’re wondering, Nicki — are totally OK waiting now that we know this unfathomable collaboration is the reason.
“The queen of rap slaying with Queen B. If you ain’t on the team, you’re playing for team ‘D,’” Nicki raps in part of her verse. “Like MJ’s doctor, they’re killing me: propofol. I know they hope I fall, but tell them winning is my motherf—ing protocol. Because I score before I ever throw the ball. These bitches washed up and there no f—in’ soap involved.”
