Beyoncé's “Flawless” remix finally got the visual treatment. Today (Oct. 6) Bey released video of her performance with Nicki Minaj during the Paris On the Run tour stop, which aired as a special on HBO last month.
For her part, Minaj is more than comfortable in the presence of royalty. The 31-year-old YMCMB rapper held it down on stage right alongside Queen Bey, with her hair pulled back in a tight ponytail while rocking a Versace bodysuit for a flawless five-minute live performance.
Similar to the way that Mrs. Carter unveiled the song, and her fifth studio album, the “Flawless” performance video popped up online without any advance notice and could very well be Bey’s answer to criticism she received from Annie Lennox, who called her feminist title "tokenistic" and self-serving.
The Bey Hive and Minaj's clan of Barbz aren't totally satisfied though, because the “Flawless” remix isn’t available for purchase on iTunes yet. Maybe that'll come next.
