Beyonce Drops Unannounced ‘Flawless’ Remix With Nicki Minaj [LISTEN]
HipHopWired picked up wind of the collaboration earlier this week and suggested that the new ‘Flawless’ remix was the reason why Minaj postponed her debut of ‘Anaconda’ to Monday, Aug. 4, in order to avoid the two tracks fighting for attention.
In this new version of ‘Flawless,’ Beyonce references the infamous Solange-Jay Z elevator fight with the lyrics, “Of course sometimes sh– goes down / When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
The rest of the song keeps up with the original spirit of the song, where Beyonce raps about waking up “flawless” and celebrating her own life, self-worth and accomplishments. “I wake up looking this good / And I wouldn’t change it if I could / You can say what you want / I’m the sh–.”
Minaj comes into the track later on, rapping, “Yo, like MJ doctor / They killing me / Propofol / I know they hope I fall / But tell ’em winning / Is my motherf—in protocol.” She then references her own “flawless” self with “Instagram another flawless pic / Flawless city with these flawless t—-s / I got all these hundreds / You got all them fifties.”
Both Beyonce and Minaj slay on this ‘Flawless’ track, which is what you would expect when you have two queens of music collaborating together.
