Beyonce Hints At Jay Z And Solange Lift Tiff

Pop superstar Beyonce has alluded to the infamous lift confrontation between her husband Jay Z and sister in a newly released remix of Flawless.

In the lyrics, the singer says: "Of course sometimes **** goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."

The remix, which features a first-time collaboration with Nicki Minaj, was released without fanfare on Beyonce's website.

In May, CCTV footage from a New York hotel lift emerged on TMZ.com which appeared to show her sister Solange abusing the 99 Problems rapper before unleashing a barrage of kicks and punches.

Jay Z is seen attempting to protect himself but does not hit back and throughout most of the incident Beyonce, who is standing between the other two, barely gets involved until just before the trio exit the elevator.

On May 15, an official statement was released about the dispute, which said: "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred.

"They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family ... At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different."

The hotel announced it fired an employee for "breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video".

In late June Beyonce kicked off her first world tour with Jay Z. The couple are currently on tour in California.

Forbes magazine recently named the former Destiny's Child singer as the world's most powerful celebrity, knocking media titan Oprah Winfrey off the top spot.

It said the singer earned 62m last year.

Although she was not the highest earner on the list, her presence in the press and on social media - along with endorsements and a fashion line - assured her the top spot.

The magazine ranked her husband 6th on the power list.
