Music’s most famous couple -- Beyonce and Jay Z -- said in May that they had “moved forward” from Jay Z’s infamous elevator fight with his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, but now Beyonce’s music says otherwise.
The 32-year-old songstress’ remix of hit “Flawless” – released Sunday on her website – coyly addresses the elevator situation with a changed lyric.
"Of course, sometimes s*** go down when there's $1 billion on an elevator," the mother of 2-year-old Blue Ivy raps in the remix, which features Nicki Minaj.
"You can say what you want, I'm the s***,” Beyonce says to her detractors.
The last public statement from the family about the May 5 altercation between Solange Knowles, 28, and Jay Z came from Solange, herself, last month when she told Lucky Magazine the family is “all good.”
“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she told the magazine. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that."
Video of Solange kicking and punching her rapper brother-in-law broke a week after the May 5 incident allegedly took place in an elevator at New York City’s Standard Hotel after the Met Gala.
Later that month, Jay Z, Solange and Beyonce released a statement to the Associated Press, which read, "As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."
Beyonce and Jay Z have been touring the U.S. on their "On the Run Tour" since June. The tour will end in September with two performances in Paris.
