Beyoncé never stops surprising us, does she? In her latest and greatest musical stunt, she teamed up with Nicki Minaj to create a remix of her hit single, Flawless, released on Sunday, 3 August. The surprise: she addressed her husband, Jay-Z and sister, Solange's elevator brawl.

"Of course sometimes shit goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator," she sings in the remix of Flawless. Talk of the sensationalised argument simmered down after Beyonce, Jay-Z and Solange issued a joint statement earlier in May to resolve the matter.

She then talks about her family – "Mommy taught me good home training, my daddy taught me how to love my haters, my sister told me I should speak my mind, my man made me feel so goddamn fine" – before assuring us that she is indeed flawless.

Nicki threw in some shocking input, singing "Like MJ's doctor, they're killing me: propofol..."

What's killing Nicky? Rumours circling the Carters' marriage? Word has it that the couple have been staying at different hotels and arriving separately to their On The Run shows.

You'll recall a similar lyric-changing act, which saw Beyoncé change some words in Resentment to hint at, cough, someone (speculation says Jay-Z) cheating.

"This may not make it to San Francisco," a source told Page Six, regarding the supercouple's disintegrating relationship and their tour. "I'm definitely not sure that they'll make it to Paris."

Say what you want. As Beyoncé declares in Flawless, "I'm the shit."
