As the world has come to know, Beyoncé has released another remix of her Renaissance song "Break My Soul," this time starring Madonna, the Queen of Pop.
Queen Bey released "The Queens Remix" of her dance floor filler on Friday (August 5), which is now exclusively available for purchase on Bey's official website.
The "Break My Soul" remix is Beyoncé and Madonna's first collaboration, but Bey did appear in Madonna's star-studded "Bitch I'm Madonna" music video in 2015.
Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Diplo were all featured in the video. Madonna is also a TIDAL founding investor."
Since the release of her Renaissance album, which is expected to debut atop the Billboard 200 next week with an estimated 275,000 to 315,000 total album-equivalent sales, there has been a tidal wave of Beyoncé news.
While the BeyHive has showed a lot of love for Beyoncé's latest initiative, it hasn't been without criticism. Kelis expressed her displeasure at having her 2003 hit "Milkshake" sampled without her permission on "Energy," which Bey later removed from the track.
Furthermore, some individuals were offended by the phrase "spaz" in the song "Heated," labeling it a "ableist" slur. Following that, Beyoncé and her crew removed the words from the song, which Brooklyn Nets player Kevin Durant described as a "joke."
Khia chimed in, calling Renaissance a "tired-ass record." The "My Neck, My Back" rapper also accused Bey of using the album to cast a spell on everyone.
“Is this b**** is trying to put a spell on everybody in the world, including the children, with this tired ass album?” Khia said in the voodoo-filled rant. “We’ve been on lockdown for three damn years and this all you could come up with".
