Sometimes shit goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator.

At 1 a.m. this morning, Beyoncé released a surprise remix of her track "Flawless" featuring both a verse from Nicki Minaj and a nod to that elevator incident. (You remember it, right?) Of it, she says:

"We escalate, up in this bitch like elevators / Of course sometimes shit goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."

Of course it does, sometimes! Listen to the track here, or on Beyoncé's site:

Rolling Stone points out that Beyoncé and Nicki's collaboration comes a few years after Minaj, speaking to Us Weekly, named Yonce as the number one artist she wanted to work with:

"I've worked with just about all my dream collabs, like I've worked with Jay-Z and I've worked with Kanye and I worked with Rihanna and I've worked with Eminem. Those were at the top of my list. Now that I've done that, probably the only one on my list that I haven't worked with that I'm really, really excited about is Beyonce."

Well, winning is her mother fucking protocol. So.
