Watch: Beyonce, Nicki Minaj "Flawless" Remix Performance from Paris Arrives Online
If you've ever wanted to watch and rewatch the high quality production video of Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj performing their "Flawless" remix in Paris, well, today is quite the lucky day. Two weeks after Beyoncé and Jay Z's On The Run HBO special aired, the highly talked about "Flawless" performance has made its live debut on VEVO.
Beyoncé famously brought out Minaj for the final two shows of her On The Run Tour in Paris, and for those who don't have access to HBO, getting a chance to catch the live "Flawless" remix performance was difficult, with grainy video footage and potato-like sound making up the majority of YouTube videos.
The new HD clip features Beyoncé and Minaj storming the stage together, commanding the massive French arena like the two queens they are. In her traditional "Flawless" style, Beyoncé kicked off the performance with her Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie feminism intro. Wearing a colorful Versace bodysuit and a Roman-style hairdress, "Flawless" all seems like business as usual until midway, when Beyoncé asks the enthusiastic crowd if she can do something new for them.
Then, she breaks out the now-infamous elevator verse before bringing out her special guest "Onika" (Minaj's real name) to make the "Flawless" remix complete.
Minaj rocks a complimentary bodysuit for the performance, with her hair tied back in a sleek ponytail. The two then interact seamlessly, pulling off a major performance for the ages.
