Continuing with the trend of dropping tracks in the middle of the night, Beyoncé went ahead and left us a nice Sunday morning gift: A new remix of “Flawless” with Nicki Minaj.

The track, which debuted on Beyoncé’s wesbite, gets some nice flow from Minaj, who recently experienced some online pearl-clutching from the “dads of hip-hop,” after the album cover for new single “Anaconda” was deemed too risque. The “Flawless” remix also references the now-infamous elevator incident between Jay Z and Solange: “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”

Minaj and Beyoncé have always existed in a similar realm, but this is the first time they’ve collaborated. Hopefully it isn’t the last. It seems to have invigorated the Internet on this lovely Sunday.
