Beyoncé yesterday released “Darling Nicki (Minaj),” a tribute dedicated to the Young Money rapper.

During the short homage piece, which is an adaptation of Prince’s Purple Rain track “Darling Nikki,” Beyoncé calls Minaj “the rap queen.”

“I met this girl named Nicki, I guess you could say she was the rap queen,” Beyoncé sings. “I met her in the studio lobby, but her booty looked bigger in the magazines / She said, ‘B will you jump on this song of mine?’ / How could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme?”
