Nicki Minaj & Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’ (Remix) Music Video
The video opens with Beyonce on stage in Paris for one of the final nights of her On The Run tour with husband Jay Z.
Queen Bey begins to sing “Flawless” as the following flashes across the screen: “Feminist: a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.”
Beyonce slays the track and works it with an army of backup dancers. But midway through the song from her self-titled 2013 album, Beyonce starts singing the remixed version and brings out Nicki Minaj.
Introduced by her real name, Onika, the rapper spits out, “The queen of rap, slayin with Queen Bey / If you ain’t on the team, you plain’ for team D.”
Nicki Minaj: What It Was Like Working With Beyonce
Earlier this year, Nicki, 31, spoke about what it was like working with Beyonce, 33, on the track.
“[My manager] Gee [Roberson] called me when I was on my way to Vegas, and he said, ‘Beyoncé wants you to remix ‘Flawless,'” Nicki told Hot 97 in August, according to Rolling Stone. “And after I got proper medical help and started breathing again, I was like, ‘What?'”
According to Nicki, Beyonce wanted her to be creative and practice her originality, telling her, “I want you to be you—I don’t want you to hold back.”
