Beyonce managed to steal a portion of your life. Again.
The Queen Bey orchestrated another successful ambush of American pop culture when she stealthily dropped the scorching heat-seeking single, “Flawless,” with Nicki Minaj that profanely addresses several hot topics, including the infamous elevator beatdown that sister Solange administered on her husband Jay Z.
Unleashing her caged-up Sasha Fierce in the studio by spitting molten lava-level lyrics onto wax, the royal pop princess is unapologetically and uncharacteristically blunt, telling folks that she doesn’t care what folks think of her because she knows she is “the s—.”
Most famously, the Queen of the Bey Hive addressed the “Elevator-Gate.”
“We escalating, up in this bit*h like elevators/Of course, sometimes sh*t goes down when its a billion dollars on the elevator/Of course, sometimes sh*t goes down when its a billion dollars on the elevator“
The reaction was visceral and intense, trending on social media all day Sunday. There were also some hilarious memes that accompanied the social discourse over Beyonce’s words in the sizzling single that, for the first time in memory, completely overshadows Nicki Minaj.
But then again, Queen Bey overshadows pretty much everyone. Take a look at the funny memes about “Flawless.”
