Never one to let music bloggers sleep, Queen Bey is back with another surprise late-night release. This time: A remix to the anthemic ***Flawless, sans Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, with a whole lot of Nicki Minaj added for good measure. The most interesting line comes when Bey addresses the now-infamous scuffle between her husband and sister:

Less a feminist manifesto, and more a three and a half minute tutorial on how to deify yourself through music, Nicki and Yoncé waste no time reminding you who runs this shit, brushing off the scandals and gossip while getting back to the motherfuckin’ protocol: winning.
