New version of song from self-titled 2013 album revealed
Beyoncé has released a remix of her song ‘Flawless’ in which she makes reference to Jay Z and Solange’s now infamous elevator fight
The singer has united with Nicki Minaj on the track, which can be heard here. During her rapped verse, Beyoncé says: “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
This is a clear reference to an incident in May, footage appeared of Solange appearing to attack Jay Z in a lift at New York’s Standard Hotel while Beyonce looked on. Since the incident, the three musicians have published a joint statement in which they said they have “moved forward as a united family”.
Elsewhere on the remix, a sample of Outast’s ‘SpottieOttieDopaliscious’ is used.
‘Flawless’ originally appeared on Beyoncés self-titled 2013 album. The remix appears ahead of her and husband’s Jay Z’s ‘On The Run’ tour arriving in Europe next month (September).
The tour takes place in the US this summer and details of its arrival in Europe were announced on June 13. Two nights at the Stade de France in Paris are the only confirmed dates thus far, with the couple set to perform on September 12 and 13.
The tour began in Miami at the Sun Life Stadium on June 25. The final date on the US leg of the tour will come on August 6 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
