Between the controversy over her "Anaconda" artwork, the eventual release of that single, and her appearance on "Bang Bang" with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, Nicki Minaj has already had a pretty productive couple of weeks week. But last night she released an even more notable collaboration in the form of a remix of Beyoncé's "Flawless."

Over a hazy, slowed down version of the track's burbling beat, Bey offers a whole host of new bars, a few of which deal with that infamous elevator incident ("Of course sometimes shit goes down / When it's a billion dollars on an elevator"). Nicki offers a slowly drawled verse near the end of the track that appropriately describes this new rendition as "the Queen of rap, slayin with Queen Bey." You can hear it in full over at Beyoncé's website, and be sure to note the sample of Outkast's "SpottieOttieDopaliscious."
