Earlier this year, CCTV footage from a Met Ball after-party surfaced online, showing Solange kicking and striking Jay Z in a lift while Beyoncé stood by motionless.

Because the clip had no sound, it’s still unclear why Solange unleashed her wrath on the rap mogul, and a statement from the family released shortly afterwards simply stated that they were moving past the incident together.
Solange gave an interview last month, where she said that the Knowles-Carter family were "all good", following the furore surrounding the leaked footage, which she referred to only as "that thing".
However, lyrics in the new remix of Beyoncé's ‘Flawless’ - which, in true Beyoncé fashion, appeared online over the weekend from nowhere - appear to allude to the altercation. Queen Bey is heard singing: “We escalate up in this bitch like elevators / Of course sometimes sh*t goes down when it's a billion dollars on an elevator”.

The new remix marks the first time that Nicki - who has quite honestly teamed up with with almost every popstar in the world at this stage - and the former Destiny’s Child star have collaborated, though the ‘Starships’ singer has expressed a desire to work with Beyoncé throughout her career.
Nicki is currently gearing up for the release of her third studio album ‘The Pink Print’ - a reference to Jay Z’s celebrated ‘Blue Print’ albums - and is featured on Jessie J’s new song ‘Bang Bang’, alongside chart-topper Ariana Grande.
