Beyonce releases surprise ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj
Late Saturday night, rapper Nicki Minaj directed Twitter and Instagram followers to a website where fans were treated to a remix of Beyonce’s hit, “Flawless.”
Minaj, who has an album releasing this week, closes out the track.
If you don’t recognize the lyrics at the top of the track, you’re not alone. Toward the end of the first verse, Beyonce seems to make a reference to the now-famous elevator incident involving her younger sister, Solange, and her husband, Jay Z.
“Of course sometimes s**t goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator,” she sings.
Those lyrics likely refer to an incident that took place at the Standard Hotel in New York City as the trio left a Met Gala after-party in May. In surveillance video initially obtained by TMZ, Solange kicks her brother-in-law multiple times before being restrained by another person.
Aside from a statement released in the aftermath, the couple has stayed silent about what triggered the fight. Solange recently told Lucky magazine that things are “all good” with her sister and brother-in-law.
This isn’t the first time Bey has changed up lyrics. Toward the beginning of the “On The Run” tour with hubby Jay Z, she altered the words to “Resentment” in a way that many thought suggested the rap mogul had cheated.
The singer, who often uses social media to bat down rumors, posted an image to Instagram last week amid heightened talk that they’re on the brink of divorce. In the photo, her husband carries their daughter, Blue Ivy, at the beach.
“My favorite hue is Jay Z Blue,” the caption reads.
