Beyonce flawless remix: Singer finally addresses Jay Z and Solange lift fight
'Of course sometimes s*** goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator,' she sings in a new remix
Beyoncé has finally chosen to address that fight in a New York lift between her sister, Solange Knowles, and husband, Jay Z, back in May.
Though not in the way one might expect.
Rather than confronting the speculation in another series of saccharine Instagram posts, or telling another interviewer the matter was a "private one" that had been "resolved", she decided to pass comment in the most public way possible – by aggressively singing the following lyrics in a new remix of her single "Flawless":
"Of course sometimes s*** goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."
Elsewhere in the track, which features rapper Nicki Minaj, she goes on to cite elements in both parties she likes. A good job, really. Considering one is her sister and the other her husband.
"My sister taught me how to speak my mind/my man make me feel so God damn fine."
And it continues thusly. Listen to it below.
The now-infamous ‘lift attack’ was leaked to the media by a security guard at the Standard Hotel in New York, who passed CCTV footage onto TMZ for a hefty fee.
The three had been at an afterparty for the 2014 Met Gala Ball before the incident took place. In the video, Solange can be seen kicking and lashing out at her brother-in-law as Beyoncé watches on motionless from the sidelines.
Naturally, the incident spawned a seemingly endless stream of impressive memes, and an official joint statement, in which the three confirmed they had "moved forward as a united family".
