Dream team! Beyonce and Nicki Minaj combined forces for the single “Feeling Myself,” releasing an epic new music video for the track through Jay Z‘s Tidal streaming service on Monday, May 18.
The two divas added hype to Hov’s less-than-successful latest venture, giving fans one big reason to sign up for Tidal. Minaj, 32, enlisted Bey, 33, for the cut off of her 2014 album The Pinkprint.
The “Anaconda” performer has long been vocal about her admiration for Beyonce, and clearly had a ball with the singer while filming “Feeling Myself.” Minaj, who said last fall that Beyonce “represents everything that I would like to be, in terms of being an artist and a businesswoman at the same time,” opens the video with Bey by her side, posing at the city limits of Coachella, Calif.
Minaj and Beyonce then change into one-piece bathing suits, sunning on floaties as the rapper spits, “I’m with some hood girls lookin’ back at it / And a good girl in my tax bracket / Got a black card that’ll let Saks have it / These Chanel bags a bad habit.”
The two — who previously collaborated on a remix to Beyonce’s “***Flawless” — go on to prove that they are the queens of summer, wearing crop tops and swimsuits as they party, ride in the beds of trucks, and take dips in kiddie pools.
In one particularly talked-about moment, Beyonce and Minaj take a break in a bounce house trampoline. Wearing coordinated black-and-white outfits, they take a seat and wrap their arms around one another as they chow down on hamburgers. Sipping on drinks, the two stars toss one another french fries, having a blast as they show just how much they’re feeling themselves.
