Beyoncé References Elevator Incident in New Remix with Nicki Minaj
"Of course sometimes s––t goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator," Bey sings
Beyoncé did what she does best – that would be surreptitiously releasing new and excellent music – late Saturday night, debuting a remix of “Flawless” that seemingly references the famous Met Gala elevator brawl between husband Jay Z and sister Solange.
The line in question: “Of course sometimes s— goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” (There is, of course, the very slim chance Bey is talking about the dangers of transporting large volumes of cash or possibly bearer bonds, but we doubt it.)
She also states, “Mommy taught me good home training, my daddy taught me how to love my haters, my sister told me I should speak my mind, my man made me feel so g—— fine.”
Minaj does not use her time on the track to clarify her alleged feud-but-maybe-also-not-a-feud with Iggy Azalea, but does note that she’s the “queen of rap,” and also that she’s “slaying with Queen Bey,” so there’s that.
Bey and Jay have been dodging rumors of marital trouble since before their On the Run co-headlining tour began June 25.
Where does this song fit into the elaborate web of evidence the Internet has been compiling? That’s for you to decide.
