This is the personal blog of Ty, a university student based in Johannesburg, and Cape Town, South Africa. It's all about everything he finds interesting and more... . And it was awkward writing this in the third person.

Beyonce Flawless Remix

image

Sunday, 03 August, 2014, I woke up not so flawless after a night out drinking. With my phone in my hand, I jumped on the #BeyHive bandwagon as Beyonce and Nicki dropped a remix to the song Flawless, which is one of my favourite tracks on the self-titled album, Beyonce. So it was official, in the two days – Sunday and Monday – Nicki Minaj would arguably be the most talked about person in the world’s online media. This post is not suppose to be a song review, I’ve never written nor read any of those but the Flawless remix has a few lines that have made me repeat the song so many, many time.

The infamous elevator incident between Bey’s lesser known sister, Solange (who shot a music video is South Africa), and Queen B’s more famous partner, Jay. I certainly commend Solange’s combat skills on the clip – you’d swear she was a character in a 1990s video game. As for Bey, well the poise with which she carried in the entire duration of the short clip is something admirable: the bitch is class AF! Which leads me to the following lines on the remix -

Of course sometimes shit go down

When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator

Of course sometimes shit go down

When it’s a billion dollars on an elevator

(Ha, ha, ha, $$$, God damn, God damn, God damn!)

Not only has she monetize a scene that would’ve/could’ve tarnished any entertainer’s career, she’s just reminded me of the monetary powerhouse that the Knowles-Carter family is. There’s too much money involved in that marriage for it to break down over such an incident. Many fans (excluding me) scrolled down on the latest Forbes List of the Wealthiest Families in America, but the Knowles-Carters where not listed. After the Flawless remix, I suggest Forbes researchers do more to confirm that indeed America’s first black family needs inclusion in the prestigious billionaires list.

Another verse that’s my favourite is Onika’s -

Looking Trinidadian, Japanese and Indian

Got Malaysian, got that yaki, that wavy Brazilian

(Them bitches thirsty, I’m Hungarian

Nicki, B, be eatin’ diamond fangs, barbarian, ah)

Because my friend and I (while intoxicated with the Queen’s drink), where talking about Nicki’s often reference of her multiracial DNA. How important that is I’m really unsure of, but what the heck.
