Song of the Day #2,270: ‘Flawless (Remix)’ – Beyoncé feat. Nicki Minaj

beyonce_minajBeyoncé’s surprise self-titled album came out nearly a year ago, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

This week, Queen Bey released a video of her Paris performance of album track ‘Flawless’ with rapper Nicki Minaj.

The remix itself was released in August, but given that every song on the album has an accompanying video, it’s only fitting that this one should, too.

This collaboration is a perfect encapsulation of the Summer of the Woman (Year of the Woman is more appropriate at this point). It’s nice to see that so many of the female-driven hits have been partnerships between big name artists.

So much for the stereotype of divas competing for the crown. They all seem content to share it.

But of course some divas are more equal than others, and Beyoncé still owns the throne.

[Intro: Beyoncé]
Dum-da-de-da
Do, do, do, do, do, do
(Coming down, dripping candy on the groun’)

[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
It’s that Yoncé, your Yoncé
In that lingerie, on that chardonnay
Scoring touchdowns on your runway
I’m Texas forever like Bun B
And I’m Rambo-ing these hoes
I’m really rit like Donjae
I’m camo-ing these hoes
These thots can’t clock me nowadays
You wish I was your pound cake
Boy, you know I look good as fuck
Wish I was your baby momma
Want me to come around and give you good karma, but no
We escalating, up in this bitch like elevators
Of course sometimes shit go down
When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Of course sometimes shit go down
When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Ha-ha! God damn, God damn, God damn

[Bridge 1: Beyoncé]
Momma taught me good home training
My Daddy taught me how to love my haters
My sister taught me I should speak my mind
My man made me feel so God damn fine (I’m flawless!)

[Hook: Beyoncé]
You wake up, flawless
Post up, flawless
Ridin’ round in it, flawless
Flossin’ on that, flawless
This diamond, flawless
My diamond, flawless
This rock, flawless
My Roc, flawless
I woke up like this, I woke up like this
We flawless, ladies tell ’em
I woke up like this, I woke up like this
We flawless, ladies tell ’em
Say “I look so good tonight”
God damn, God damn
Say “I look so good tonight”
God damn, God damn, God damn

[Bridge 2: Beyoncé]
I wake up looking this good
And I wouldn’t change it if I could
(If I could, if I, if I, could)
And you can say what you want, I’m the shit
(What you want I’m the shit, I’m the shit)
(I’m the shit, I’m the shit, I’m the shit)
I want everyone to feel like this tonight
God damn, God damn, God damn!

[Sample: SpottieOttieDopaliscious]
(Onika…)

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj & (Beyoncé)]
Looking Trinidadian, Japanese and Indian
Got Malaysian, got that yaki, that wavy Brazilian
(Them bitches thirsty, I’m Hungarian)
(Nicki, Bey, be eating, diamond fangs, barbarian, ah)
Yo, like MJ doctor, they killing me
Propofol, I know they hope I fall
But tell ‘em winning is my motherfuckin’ protocol
‘Cause I score before I ever throw the ball
These bitches washed up and ain’t no fuckin’ soap involved, uh
This every hood nigga dream, fantasizing about Nicki and Bey
Curvalicious, pussy served delicious
Mayday, mayday, earth to bitches
Slap these hoes on they ass, like we birthing bitches, UHN!
The queen of rap, slayin’ with Queen B
If you ain’t on the team, you playin’ for team D
Cause we A-listers, we paid sisters
This watch right here done phased blizzards
I confess, I woke up like this
All this drank in my cup like this
All this ass on that flawless dick
Instagram, another flawless pic
Flawless city with these flawless titties
I got all these hundreds, you got all them fifties
I’m with some flawless bitches because they mobbin’ pretty
Cause niggas love bad bitches that be on they grizzly
Throw that ass back, I be on my frisbee
Princess cut diamonds on my Disney
He want monster Nicki in Sri Lanka
I told him meet me at the Trump, Ivanka
I said come here, let me show you how this cookie taste
This that “Yeah, nigga, eat the cookie” face

[Outro]
(Right, right, right)

    I’m surprised you didn’t go to see Beyoncé in concert. I would expect you to be there right in front, perhaps with binoculars.😄
