Beyonce joins forces with Nicki Minaj to present a high-powered rework to Bey’s single “Flawless.” As rumored, the track presents itself as a response to the infamous elevator tussle between Bey’s husband Jay Z and sister Solange as heard via the punchline: “of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” As her first Beyonce collaboration, Nicki Minaj establishes herself as hip-hop’s Queen Bee and delivers a powerful verse right after OutKast’s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” horn sample at the 2:20 mark.
